Their A-list first double date

Meghan and Daryl, now 31, first met at a house party back in 2014, but wouldn't go on their first date till July 2016, when they were set up by none other than Chloë Grace Moretz.

During an appearance on Chelsea Handler's Netflix talk show, she explained that Chloë set the two up when Meghan wanted to date, and they went bowling and for karaoke on a double date with Chloë and her then-boyfriend Brooklyn Beckham.

Making things official

Months later, that October, Meghan shared a photo with Daryl on Instagram and made their romance official, and they then began gushing over each other on social media constantly.

While they became known for being honest about their PDA and personal lives, they made things all the more official a year and a half into dating, when the Spy Kids star proposed to Meghan on December 21, 2017, a day before her 24th birthday.

A year later, on the "Lips Are Movin'" singer's 25th birthday, the two tied the knot in an intimate backyard ceremony attended by friends and family, two and a half years after their first date.

Building a family

In October 2020, the couple announced on social media that they were expecting their first child, and welcomed their son Riley, now three, in February 2021.

Health struggles

Meghan revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in 2017 that her then-boyfriend was her biggest support system when she had her second vocal cord surgery, going so far as to learn sign language to communicate with her.

"He would stick with me and paint with me, even though his were not as good as mine. He put effort in it," she gushed.

Daryl was also by her side after a "traumatic" experience with the birth of their first son, who required a C-section and remained asleep for a week after his birth.

Through therapy and family support, she found comfort. "[We] realized how traumatic that all was, and how I was having PTSD at nighttime when I would try to go to sleep," she told People. "I would be back in the C-section, on the table."
