Emma Stone is engaged to her boyfriend of more than two years, been SNL‘s Dave McCary. The couple is extremely private and has shared little-to-no details about their relationship—save for a few date night photos here and there. However, they announced their engagement via McCary’s Instagram with a surprise ring photo. Stone’s fiancé is extremely accomplished and has made a name for himself in the business behind the camera. Here, everything we know about McCary before he and Stone wed.
He’s a segment director for Saturday Night Live.
According to People, McCary joined SNL alongside cast members Kyle Mooney and Beck Bennett during the 39th season in 2013. He’s a writer, segment director, and co-founded a comedy troupe called Good Neighbor with Mooney, Bennett, and Nick Rutherford, per People. In fact, if you peep McCary’s non-engagement ring posts, you’ll see quite a bit of Mooney.
He’s engaged to Emma Stone.
McCary broke the news of his engagement to Stone on Instagram. He captioned a photo of the two smiling while she held up her hand with the engagement ring, ” “?.”
Celebrities including Zoey Deutch, Queer Eye‘s Tan France, and SNL‘s Aidy Bryant have shown the couple love in the comments section.
The couple reportedly lives together.
On the heels of their engagement news, a source tells People that McCary and Stone also “got a home together in Malibu over the summer.” The insider went on to talk about the couple’s connection, sharing, “Dave is a super down-to-earth guy. Most of his best friends are people he’s known since he was a kid, and he’s not affected by Hollywood. He’s very creative and funny, and he and Emma share the same sense of adventure.”
He met Stone when she hosted SNL two years ago.
Stone first met McCary when she hosted SNL in December 2016. She was performing in the show’s “Wells for Boys” sketch, which McCary was directing.
He’s directed a movie called Brigsby Bear.
Houston, we have a side hustle. In addition to his work on Saturday Night Live, McCary directed a film called Brigsby Bear, starring his SNL pal Kyle Mooney. The film released (only in select theaters) in July 2017, and grossed $500k at the box office. Before the film’s opening night, Stone and McCary were rumored to be dating but hadn’t actually been seen together—until the film’s opening night that is. A fan caught this video of the couple leaving the film’s premiere party together (that blonde head is Stone and that abnormally tall guy is McCary).
He’s been dating Stone since at least October 2017.
Rumors that Stone and McCary were exclusive were swirling since they were seen leaving that Brigsby Bear premiere together, but actual, legitimate reports they’d been dating “for months” surfaced in October.
He’s on Instagram (kinda).
Unlike his famous girlfriend, McCary has an active Instagram account…sort of. He’s on Instagram as @DaveMcCary, but he’s posted hardly any photos of himself. In fact, his feed consists mostly of photos of his best friend Kyle Mooney, who is an actor on SNL.
