Dominic Cooper's Dating-affair: His Thoughts on Turning Girlfriend into Wife

While most of the people turn their long relationship into marriage, Dominic Cooper is showing otherwise. Just because he is taking a while to get married does not make him gay, however. The actor has been in a relationship with Preacher's co-star Ruth Negga since 2009.

The couple met on the stage production of Phèdre. Since then, the duo worked together in several movies like Warcraft and Breakfast on Pluto. The actress claimed that she loves working with her beau.

'It would be so lonely if he wasn't there. People say, "Never go out with an actor." But if you were with someone with a normal job, and one of you had to go away, how would that work?' 

The happy lovebirds lived in London, and they barely talked about their relationship in public. But, the pair were often spotted by paparazzi.

Although Dominic and Ruth did not disclose anything about a possible marriage, the actress did express her thoughts on having babies.

"By the time you're in a great relationship, it's like, oh, I'm 35. S***. So there is part of your thinking that is: "Do I want kids? When? If? How?"

It seems like the couple had no intention of getting married, whatsoever, but there was always hope. Saying that the dream ended then and there for the couple as they quietly seperated from each other. The fans were aware of the news only when Dominic appeared with fellow Crazy Rich Asian actress Gemma Chan in September 2018.

While all were in a state of shock, the new pair made their first appearance as a couple in the 2018 Fashion Awards afterparty. The lovers were spotted, leaving the party together. Similarly, in October 2019, the two were spotted strolling hand and hand while grabbing a coffee in Primrose Hillin.

Now one year down the line, the loving couple are still thrilled like the first day they were seen together. If things go on like this, the two might get married to each other, but only time will tell. Gemma is busy with her new movie Let Them All Talk and Eternals coming in 2020. All in all, the fans have to be a bit patient to see them together again. 

Before, Dominic was dating his Mama Mia! Co-Star, Amanda Seyfried. They fell in love with each other on the sets of Mamma Mia! while shooting in an exotic location like Greece. But after having an on-and-off affair for two years, they finally broke up, and Dominic met Ruth the same year.

Wait, there is more! Cooper was in a twelve-year relationship with Joanna Carolan. It turns out, Dominic saw Amanda while he was still in a relationship with Joana. When the news of Dominic and Amanda broke out, Joana and Dominic broke up, and Joanna shared:

"I've cried a lot of tears... We still love each other, but we're not together. I also care about Amanda: she's young and vulnerable and has been upset by what's been said,"

But that was all in the past. Gemma and Dominic are living very happily together now. Although neither of them has revealed anything about the marriage, they are immensely in love and support each other's career.
