WATCH: Does David Muir have a partner? Here's all we know

One thing we know for sure is that David is not married, but that's not to say a walk down the aisle isn't in his future.

With his rugged good looks, talent and the fact he's graced People Magazine's Sexiest Men Alive list, David, 48, is a catch.

It was a big year for David, who was connected to fellow journalist, Kate Dries, then too. This time, she sparked the rumors with an article she wrote for Jezebel, entitled, Report Indicates my Boyfriend David Muir is a Monster.  

In the piece, Kate said she visited Rome with David and that they had a spark from the beginning.

"David and I connected right from the start," she said.  "'I thought Peter Jennings was the James Bond of evening news,’ he told me on our first date."

Kate continued: "I tried to remain calm because (little did he know) Peter was my first love and I didn’t want to make David feel uncomfortable. But Peter would quickly be pushed far from my mind during my courtship with David. I mean, will you look at this man?"


David has a close friendship with Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos

There were never any further indications that the pair were connected though.

David gives nothing away on his Instagram either, with most of his posts involving his stories for ABC, rare family snapshots, or the occasional vacation picture.

Although there is a certain someone who makes an appearance more often than anyone else... his beloved gun dog Axel.
