Beanie Feldstein & Bonnie-Chance Roberts Are 5 Years Into Their Love Story
The couple got married in upstate New York on May 20.
After wowing audiences around the world with her portrayal of Monica Lewinsky in American Crime Story: Impeachment and returning to Broadway in the titular role of the beloved show Funny Girl, Beanie Feldstein is focusing on something more personal: her love life. The Lady Bird star has been with Bonnie-Chance Roberts since 2018, and most recently took the biggest step in their relationship.
On May 20, the actor and the film producer tied the knot in an intimate camp-themed wedding, surrounded by famous friends, family, and “bridespeople,” as they told Vogue on June 1. The two first met on a film set and quickly fell for one another, with them making marriage plans early in their relationship. “From the moment we first kissed, we both knew we would get married and months after that, Bon had announced that when the time came, she wanted to be the one to propose to me,” Feldstein told the outlet.
Even 13 months spent apart during the lockdown didn’t halt their plans, as Roberts proposed after nearly four years of dating. Throughout their relationship, the couple has supported each other at every turn, from romantic birthdays to Feldstein’s controversial turn in Funny Girl. Take a look at the full timeline of Feldstein and Roberts’ relationship below.
July 2018: They Meet Through Work
Filming began on the movie How to Build a Girl in July 2018, and that’s where and when Feldstein and Roberts met. Feldstein led the production, starring as Johanna Morrigan, aka Dolly. Roberts was one of the producers, and according to her IMDB page, it marked her first time earning that credit on a full-length feature.
September 2018: Their Instagram Debut
Just a few months after meeting in a professional setting, Feldstein and Roberts appeared to have already taken their relationship to the next level. The actor shared the first picture of the pair on her Instagram, captioning the snap, “A few weeks ago I was in Brighton on this street with this girl and it was magic.” Neither has detailed exactly when they sparked a more personal connection or when their first date was, but it must have been sometime between July and September 2018.
December 2018: The “L” Word
Feldstein openly used the big “L” word on Instagram in December 2018, less than half a year after she and Roberts began dating. She shared a fun photo of her girlfriend, announcing that she took it the day she knew it was love. The actor captioned the pic, “She made fun of my bowling skills and then belted karaoke loud enough for all of london to hear her. she’s the brightest, silliest, warmest, most loving woman and i can’t believe she’s mine. happy birthday, bon. you deserve the world.”
June 2019: Sharing Their Love
For the next year, Feldstein and Roberts weren’t shy about posting pictures on social media that showed they were spending more and more time together, falling deeper and deeper in love. In June 2019, they celebrated Pride Month together, with the actor captioning a particularly sweet image, “My pride and joy always,” with several rainbow emojis.
December 2019: Public Displays Of Affection
After nearly a year-and-a-half of being a very public couple on social media, Feldstein and Roberts finally made their relationship “red carpet official.” The pair held hands as they posed for photographers at the premiere of the movie Cats in December 2019. While the movie itself was a financial and critical flop, it was a big moment for Roberts, who was credited as head of film for Monumental Pictures.
Also in December 2019, Teen Vogue published a feature story on Feldstein, whose profile was growing by leaps and bounds at the time. She opened up about her love with Roberts in a way she never had before, telling the journalist penning the article that now that she’s with such a wonderful woman, “I get it…. I get why people write songs.” Also featured in the piece was another deeply personal item, one she hadn’t shared before: “Not to sound flippant, but I was in love with her and all of her, and she’s a woman. That’s not scaring me or deterring me. And it wasn’t just women in general — it was her specifically.”
Right before Christmas, Feldstein took to her Instagram to wish Roberts a happy birthday, and of course she did so with an adorable image and caption, calling her girlfriend “the most remarkable human ever to exist” and “the girl with the warmest heart, the most expansive imagination and the most exceptional brain.” She went on to add that she’s “pretty convinced you’re actually made of magic.”
January 2020: A Career Milestone
For her brilliant work in the film Booksmart, which remains a career highlight for Feldstein, the actor was nominated for a Golden Globe in the Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical category. While she ended up losing to Awkwafina in The Farewell, it was still a special evening for her, as she and Roberts got to walk the red carpet again and enjoy the night together.
August 2020: Anniversary Magic
Instead of going the traditional route when it comes to anniversary posts, Feldstein instead opted to use a comic book-style cartoon of her and her love. She captioned the image, simply, “We’re two!!! happy anniversary to my magic girl.”
June 2021: Talk Of The Future
In an interview with Bustle, Feldstein admitted that not only are things serious with Roberts, but that they are already looking forward to a bright future together. In fact, she claimed she could see them “spending their lives together and starting a family.”
October 2021: More Work And More Play
With public health restrictions relaxing (at least temporarily), Feldstein and Roberts were able to celebrate Halloween with the rest of the world. The couple dressed up as Chuck and Blair from Gossip Girl, absolutely nailing their roles.
Before November rolled around, it was announced that Feldstein and Roberts would be working together again, this time on an anthology titled Girls Can’t Shoot (& Other Lies), itself an adaptation of the bestselling essay collection Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (and Other Lies). A number of well-known female Hollywood actors that wrote for the original series are set to star, such as Jameela Jamil, Kat Dennings, and Feldstein. Roberts is on board to co-executive produce alongside Mark Gordon.
June 2022: “I Do, Bon.”
On June 23, Feldstein announced that she and Roberts were engaged after nearly four years of dating. The actor shared photos from Roberts’ romantic proposal in her backyard, which was intricately decorated with flowers and relationship mementos. Family and friends were also in attendance, including Feldstein’s Booksmart co-star Kaitlyn Dever and longtime friend Ben Platt. “i do, bon,” she captioned the post.
The next day, Roberts shared more photos from their engagement on Instagram, also to celebrate Feldstein’s birthday. “Happy Birthday @beaniefeldstein. I do, too!” she wrote.
July 2022: Bonnie Celebrates Funny Girl
On July 31, the last day that Feldstein performed as Fanny Brice in Funny Girl, Roberts celebrated her Broadway run and showered her fiancée with praise. “It is the greatest honour to have a front row seat to all that is you @beaniefeldstein and to watch you bring it to the residents of Henry Street every single day,” she wrote in part. “Here’s to all the trails to come!”
May 2023: Beanie & Bonnie Tie The Knot
After almost five years of dating, Feldstein and Roberts got married in a summer camp-themed wedding on the weekend of May 19. The newlyweds shared photos from their wedding weekend on Instagram, showing off Feldstein’s Gucci-designed white dress and Roberts’ pink bridal suit. “as every fairytale comes real…” they captioned the post, before thanking the people that made it possible.
As the couple told Vogue on June 1, they tied the knot at Cedar Lakes Estate in New York’s Hudson Valley, which is a very sentimental place for Feldstein. “It is our happy place together,” she said. “I grew up going to summer camp for ten years, and my parents and both sets of my grandparents met at summer camp, so camp is a lineage of love through the generations of my family.”
