Lena Dunham's Boyfriend: "I'm Desperate For Kids!"; Reveals They Met on a Blind Date


Jack Antonoff and Lena Dunham may be quirky stars with quirkier careers but when it comes to love, the guitarist is pretty traditional. Opening up to New York Magazine, the 30-year-old fun. band member said despite both their fame levels exploding in 2012, the creative couple did not met at some wild Hollywood party - they were set up.

The musician's friend, comedian Mike Birbiglia, thought the writer and the rocker would make a great pair, and after a bit of internet research by Jack they had a blind date.

He told the magazine: 'It was a blind date by modern standards - I mean, I used the internet.'


And they did not start off slow: 'I told Lena everything about my whole life, because when you really like someone, you want them to know everything about you.'

No wedding bells: The musician, seen here at last year's Golden Globes, says things are too 'crazy' for the pair to get married at the moment.

This also meant doing the first date no no - talking about his ex-girlfriends, which included his high school sweetheart, Scarlett Johansson, who sung with him in the Children's Professional Choir.

'As abnormal as it sounds, it was as normal as anyone’s high-school relationship.'

Not daunted by his stunning former girlfriend, Lena stuck around and before long the pair moved in together - until then the musician had briefly lived with his sister after only just moving out of home aged 28.

But just because they are living together, Jack says he is not getting down on one knee, even though the couple have spoken about it.

'I think all people in relationships that last longer than a year start talking about that stuff. It’s hard to imagine when the right time is because things are so crazy at the moment.'

However, Jack is 'desperate' to have children: 'It just seems like the most fun thing in the world. I’ve never met people who have kids who haven’t looked me in the eye and been like, ''It’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened.''

'I think it’s biological. I’m 30. I’m not that young, right? I’m not, like, 24 or 22. I’m no longer in the phase of my life where I talk about everything as in the future. Like, I’m in the future.'


For now he will have to settle for being a dad to The Girls' star's rescue dog Lamby, whom he often posts pictures of on Instagram.
