The lid is off the box!
A source revealed the news to People, saying, “Anna has been dating Bill quietly for over a year. They met years ago. She’s hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’ and they’ve done a movie together, but they got together well after the movie.”
“They are both very private people, and with the pandemic, it was easy to keep it quiet,” the source added. “They’re both hysterical so they must keep each other laughing all of the time. She’s really, really happy.”
Although Hader had been dating Rachel Bilson early in 2020, they broke up in July 2020, only six months after making their relationship public at the Golden Globes.
