The Marvel and DC director James Gunn has recently popped the question to his longtime partner Jennifer Holland and she said yes. The filmmaker has been dating the Peacemaker actress since 2015 and the couple are now preparing to spend the rest of their lives together.
Taking to Instagram, the Guardians of the Galaxy director shared a winking emoji and a red heart emoji alongside a snap of the actress flashing her engagement ring. As he dropped the image, several of the pair’s celeb’s pals sent messages of congratulations. Among those gushing in the comments section was Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan.
Meanwhile, the actress who plays Nebula in the hit movie said, “OMG!!!!!!!” along with several heart eye emoji and red heart emojis,” while fellow Guardians actress Molly Quinn wrote, “MY HEART EXPLODES FROM JOY.” Crazy Rich Asians star Nico Santos also wrote, ” CONGRATS,” while How To Get Away with Murder’s Viola Davis penned, “Aaaaaaaahhh!!!!! Congratulations!!!!!”
Previously, Jennifer had posted a happy snap of the couple to her own account from what appeared to be a walk in the countryside. However, she kept her ring finger hidden as she captioned the snap, “Happiness,” alongside a rainbow emoji and love heart emoji. James simply commented on the post with a love heart emoji of his own. It’s reported that James and Jennifer met through mutual friend Michael Rosenbaum. At the time the Smallville actor was dating one of Jennifer’s friends.
Since beginning dating, James has used his partner for the role of Emilia Harcourt in The Suicide Squad, a character she reprised in the new Peacemaker series for HBO Max. However, it will mark James’ second marriage as he had previously been wed to The Office’s Jenna Fisher. The couple were married between October 2000 and September 2007 before going their separate ways.
