Wedding on the cards?

According to a source who spoke exclusively to Us Weekly in June, “Olivia has truly been John Mulaney’s rock post-rehab and is incredibly supportive of him.” The fact that he now has a child to care for has undoubtedly altered his outlook on life. He now wants to be the greatest parent he can be while still being healthy and available to him.

That doesn’t necessarily imply that the happy pair will soon be married, at least not straight away. Olivia and John have just been dating only for a little over a year, they aren’t in any hurry to get hitched. She’s not thinking about that right now, for sure, the source stressed. She truly wants to take advantage of her time as a new mother, the insider said. Olivia has accepted motherhood wholeheartedly, with all of its difficulties and ups and downs.

Munn and Mulaney appear to be happier than ever, even though they are not hurrying down the aisle. The insider stated that “having a baby definitely drew them closer as a couple.”

We wish the star a very Happy Birthday and joyous future ahead with his new family.
