Is Taylor Kinney married?

While the 40-year-old star has never been married, he was previously engaged to pop star Lady Gaga. The pair met in 2011 on the set of her music video for her song You and I and dated for five years and got engaged on Valentine's Day 2015. However, things weren't meant to be, and they ended up calling off their engagement in July 2016.

At the time, Lady Gaga released a statement that read: "Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates. Just like all couples, we have ups and downs and we have been taking a break.

Taylor usually keeps his private life out of the spotlight, but he has gone public with his girlfriend, Ashley Cruger. Although it's not known how long the pair have been an item, they made things Instagram official back in March when the 41-year-old actor uploaded a series of sweet snaps of Ashley to his account.

Following that, they made their first public appearance together as a couple in April and were spotted kissing while attending Operation Smile's 2022 Park City Ski Challenge in Utah together. Ashley has also made a cameo on Chicago Fire, specifically in the season 11 premiere. Though her character does not interact with Severide, during a scene towards the end of the episode, Ashley could be seen raising her glass with some of the firefighters in celebration.

No, while Taylor doesn't have any kids, he is a devoted dog dad to his gorgeous pup. He often shares snaps of his canine companion to his Instagram account. In one previous post, Taylor could be seen reading and lying down in a park on a sunny day, with his dog nestled in his arms. He jokingly captioned the post: "Yea she can read."

Are Taylor Kinney and co-star Miranda Rae Mayo together?

Contrary to what some might have believed in the past, Taylor is not in a relationship with his Chicago Fire co-star Miranda Rae Mayo. While they have undeniable on-screen chemistry, they have remained firm friends since Miranda joined the NBC drama in 2016.

Speaking to HELLO! last year, Miranda revealed that the pair really didn't have to work too hard to build a connection. She said: "I showed up, not really knowing him and only knowing him from the show, and just tried things in the scene. But he is very present in our scene work, and so it was like a tango and I let him lead."
