Actress Emma Stone is expecting and has been spotted bumping along in LA. Her adorable baby bump was on full display during a stroll through the city. This will be the Oscar-winner’s first child, whom she will share with husband Dave McCary. The couple first announced their engagement back in December 2019 after two years of dating.

Rumors started swirling that the couple had secretly tied the knot with a source confirming the news to People in September 2020. But McCary stays out of the spotlight for the most part. In fact, according to People, McCary doesn’t care much about fame at all. “He’s never wanted to be famous himself, he’s wanted to showcase his funny friends and make work that lets him hang out with them,” a source told the publication.

Aside from their proposal announcement on Instagram and a few sightings, we rarely see the two together. And you probably even know less about him as an individual. So because the La La Land star and her hubby keep their personal life, well, personal, we’ve rounded up all the things you need to know about Stone’s husband and baby daddy Dave McCary.

He’s a Segment Director on Saturday Night Live

Back in 2013, McCary was brought onto SNL as a segment director during their 39th season alongside good pals Beck Bennett and Kyle Mooney (more on that later), according to People. In the last seven years at SNL, he has gone on to write and direct some hilarious and iconic sketches, like "Reality House" and "Miley Wedding Tape." We can't wait to see what jokes he has in store for this season!

He’s a Three-Time Emmy Nominee

He received Emmy nominations for “Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series” in 2016, 2017, and 2018 for his work on SNL.

He and Stone Met When She Hosted SNL in 2016

The Easy A actress hosted the show in December 2016 where she and McCary would meet as he directed her in the “Wells For Boys” sketch, according to Elle.

He Reportedly Proposed to Stone at the SNL Offices

According to Page Six, McCary’s proposal was a romantic and full-circle moment. He reportedly proposed to the actress at the SNL offices where they first met. A source told Page Six, “No one was there and by all accounts, it was very romantic.” Plus, he has a great taste in rings—her pearl ring is unique yet charming and classic.

He’s Best Friends with Comedian and SNL Cast Member Kyle Mooney

McCary and comedian Mooney have known each other since the sixth grade. And their bromance has only grown since then. They attended college together at USC and went on to work together at SNL. Mooney makes quite a lot of appearances on McCary’s Instagram, where he refers to him as his “best bud”

While we don’t know much about their secret nuptials, we’d like to think Mooney would have been his best man.

He Directed a Movie

In 2017, McCary directed a comedy-drama titled Brigsby Bear, which stars Kyle Mooney. McCary made his directional debut at the Sundance Film Festival that year. According to People, Stone attended the premiere and the two were spotted leaving together by a fan, prompting the dating speculation.

He Formed a Sketch Comedy Group in College 

During his time at USC, McCary and Mooney co-founded a sketch comedy group called Good Neighbor alongside Nick Rutherford and fellow SNL cast member Beck Bennett. Based on McCary’s Instagram page it also appears he still very close with Bennett by his number of appearances. We wish we could be a fly on the wall in the SNL production meetings with these three.
