Rebel Wilson has found herself a match! The Pitch Perfect actress secretly began dating Los Angeles-based jewelry and sustainable clothing designer Ramona Agruma near the end of 2021. By June 2022, the star broke the news to the world and seems absolutely in love. The couple has spent the past year traveling the world, collaborating on projects, and even are now co-parenting a baby together after Rebel had a daughter via surrogate in fall 2022.
After spending a year dedicated to her health and growth, Rebel shares she was ready for a serious relationship like the one she has with Agruma. "I think going through the process of finding more self-worth, I think that what you want in a partner is elevated and so it's great to have someone who feels like an equal partner and be in a healthy relationship," the actress said in an interview with People. "There were times—I'm not saying with all my exes, they're great—but there were some times that I was probably putting up with that I shouldn't have. So it feels different to be in a really healthy relationship."
