While fans of the seductive Netflix series Bridgerton had their hopes set on a real-life romance between stars Phoebe Dynevor and departing cast member Regé-Jean Page, it would appear that it was all for naught. Our leading lady, who so perfectly embodied the role of the prim and proper Lady Daphne Bridgerton, has instead found herself in the arms of Saturday Night Live commoner (we mean, comedian) Pete Davidson.
This surprising revelation has come to our attention via fellow gossip rag US Weekly which has confirmed a long-distance relationship has commenced between the two. The pair were first spotted in each others’ arms in the UK in March, and later in New York. Is this the unlikely Hollywood match we didn’t know we needed? Only time will tell.
“Pete and Phoebe are still going strong despite not being able to physically spend time together,” a source told US Weekly. “They keep in touch over text and FaceTime. Right now, they’re just focused on work… They’re not looking to rush things… He’s hoping to visit her for her upcoming birthday.”
Her birthday, dear readers, is April 17, and we’re ready to provide you with the latest details on this society match made in celebrity heaven. In the meantime, to satiate your understandable curiosity, might we suggest a rewatch of Bridgerton while Ms. Dynevor commences filming on the second season of the series? Or, perhaps, make an appointment with yourself to check out Mr. Davidson in the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel.
