So here we are, taking a look at who Jake Gyllenhaal is dating in 2021 right now and his past relationships.
Who Is Jake Gyllenhaal Dating in 2021?
Jake Gyllenhaal is dating New York-based French IMG Model Jeanne Cadieu in 2021, as we know. The couple has been dating since 2018. Unlike his past relationships, Gyllenhaal is keen on keeping this relationship private and has thus not shared many pictures with his Beau. They don’t even follow each other on Instagram either.
All we know is that things are pretty serious between them. The couple started out slow and now have transitioned dating into quite a serious relationship. Furthermore, their 16 year age difference has not bothered the couple at all. So coming in a circle, there is a talk that Gyllenhaal has introduced her to his family. Also, in a number of interviews, he has hinted at his desire to start a family.
Since the couple has managed to stay wrapped up so well, there are hardly any traces to know more about their relationship. But we are hoping to see more of them once they go public about it. Of course, Gyllenhaal’s wild linkups with popular names are one of the reasons to look at. Plus, probably also the reason he is keeping this one to himself.
