White and Addison Timlin’s romance blossomed after a nearly lifelong friendship. The pair first met around 2004 during their freshman year of high school while attending the same performing arts high school in New York City. While the couple fell in love at first sight, they didn’t date at the time. They did, however, become inseparable. Their connection would turn sour, however, when Timlin decided to transfer schools when she was 15, triggering a dramatic fight fueled by teenage angst.
The universe brought the pair back together when they were cast in the 2008 film “Afterschool” when they were both 17 years old. They remained close friends for many years after that while dating other people.
They finally struck up an official romance in 2016. The stars made their relationship Instagram official with a candid snap of the two relaxing side by side. “Welcome to Instagram to my ride or die guy,” Timlin captioned an image posted on Oct. 3, 2016. After that, the 31-year-old actor began sharing many cute moments and sweet throwbacks with her then-beau on social media.
The couple announced they were expecting their first child together on Timlin’s 27th birthday, June 29, 2018. She shared the exciting news in a sweet selfie, revealing her baby bump cradled by White. “We made a baby and my heart is bursting at the seams,” Timlin captioned the image on Instagram. “Today is my birthday but my wish already came true. This is 27 and the best is yet to come ❤️.”
The pair welcomed their firstborn, a daughter named Ezer Billie White, on Oct. 20, 2018. Timlin shared the happy news alongside pictures of her and White holding their newborn. “Welcome to the world baby girl, it just got so much brighter,” she wrote alongside the sweet photos.
White and Timlin got engaged in August 2019 and tied the knot in an intimate ceremony on Oct. 18, 2019, at the Beverly Hills Courthouse in Los Angeles. The couple ditched tradition and opted to both wear black denim jackets with the words “Til Death” split across the two pieces. The words “Buddy + Billie,” nicknames for one another, were embroidered on the outerwear inside a heart with an arrow through it. Timlin shared another image captured on their big day with their then-1-year-old baby giggling in the frame. Timlin’s close friend and fellow actor Dakota Johnson and her partner, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, reportedly attended the wedding.
A year after their nuptials, White and Timlin welcomed another baby, becoming a family of four. Their second daughter, Dolores Wild White, was born on Dec. 12, 2020. “Dolores Wild White — born 12/12/2020, just in time to save the year. She is the answer to 1000 prayers and we are in love with her,” Timlin wrote on Instagram following Dolores’s birth, adding a heartfelt shout-out to the doctors and medical staff who worked together to safely deliver their daughter amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Timlin concluded: “Thank you Ezer for your patience and wisdom — you’re the best big sister ever and finally to my husband, you are everything. We did it baby.” Johnson is both daughters’ godmother.
White and Timlin ultimately broke up, filing for divorce in May 2023. POPSUGAR obtained the divorce filing. Neither has since publicly addressed their split, though Timlin called herself a “single mother” in an Instagram post on Mother’s Day.
