Their relationship might be just a rumor too. Anyway, Rian is currently single, i.e., he is neither married nor has any children. He might be planning to get married as soon as he finds his perfect life partner.

With regards to this, the two are seen on various occasions hanging out together. The two even dressed up as Diane and Dougie.

Since the year 2011, Rian has been in a relationship with film writer, an author as well as a journalist, Karina Longworth. Neither of them has accepted their relationship publicly but has given us some hint with her tweet.

Well, we can’t say anything on their behalf unless and until they open up about it themselves. Let’s hope the director entertain us with some fantastic movies in the future.
