    Cera Has Been Married to His Long-time Girlfriend Nadine

    In March 2018, Michael and his wife Nadine were seen wearing matching gold rings in Brooklyn, New York which hinted at their marriage. The couple wasn’t known to have been together before that, this also gives us the hint that Cera prefers to keep his personal affairs away from the media.

    They married at some point before 2018 and decided to keep the news private. The marriage could have taken place with only family and friends and an event that wasn’t much glitz and glamor.

    As mentioned earlier, their connection is quiet and they rarely appear together in public. There have only been less than 2 instances where Michael and his better half Nadine were seen together out in public.

    The celebrity couple was seen together at the 2018 Tony Awards. Nadine had looked beautiful wearing an emerald green dress. At that time, the couple was seen enjoying the ceremony with champagne by the guests.

    Despite their tendency to keep their love life behind the curtains, they have been happily married for over 5 years now and none of us have heard any rumors that include ups and downs in their marriage life.

    The American actor seems to be head over heels for his wife as Cera has even written a song for her titled, OhNadine.

    Michael Cera’s wife currently works as a producer

    At the time when the couple first met, Nadine was studying theatre. But, later the celebrity spouse switched her career to a producer. However, any further details about her profession are scarce.

    The Cera Couple met in Paris

    In an interview with fellow comedian Justin Long on the podcast Life is Short in September 2022, Cera revealed that he met his then-girlfriend Nadine in a pub in Paris.

    He described how they first connected while on a publicity trip for the TV sitcom Arrested Development. “We went down the street one night to this little bar in Paris and she was there with all her flatmates and we were smiling at each other in this very unabashed way,” Michael recalled.

    The interesting thing about their first encounter was that Cera wasn’t sure if she spoke English at first, but he later discovered that she had learned the language when she was younger. The actor wasted no time whatsoever and took Nadine for a little coffee date. “I traveled to Cannes a few days later, and when I was there, I thought I should prolong my stay and hang out with this chick, so I was like, ‘I’ll do it! How sweet!’ he further explained.

    Nadine was “Kind of” seeing someone when they met

    Cera learned that Nadine was “sort of” seeing her roommate, despite the relationship being “not official.” Inferring that the “immigration hoops” would be too much for her and let her work things out with the other man, Cera let her go.

    But, she broke up with the roommate a few months later and re-connected with Cera. Since then, they have been together.

    He is a proud father of one child

    Back in March 2022, the comedian Amy Schumer accidentally revealed that Cera had a baby in the fall of 2021 in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. Schumer said, “Michael has a baby too,” continuing with “Is that public knowledge?” I just outed him, I just outed his baby.”

    Not long after that, the actor took it upon himself to confirm the news to Extra, saying “He’s just a little 6-month-old baby.” Michael has also shared that it had become difficult for him to return to work after he had his son and that he would always look at his baby’s picture while at work.

    Furthermore, Cera admitted that “I think about him all day and look at pictures of him when I’m away from him.”

    However, the name of his baby is yet to be public.

    Michael Cera “almost” Married Aubrey Plaza

    On RuPaul’s podcast “What’s the Tee?” with co-host Michelle Visage, Aubrey Plaza disclosed that her relationship with Cera lasted for “A year and a half” and how they “almost got married in Vegas.”

    Plaza said they were “just friends” before they started dating. “He wasn’t someone I ever saw and thought, ‘Oh, give me some of that Michael Cera,” she said of her then-boyfriend.

    In June 2023, Cera also discussed the couple’s previous relationship. Also, he disclosed the peculiar reason why he and Plaza came so close to being married. He told Rolling Stone, “I guess the intention was to seek a divorce then immediately away, so we could call each other “my ex-husband” and “my ex-wife” at like… 20.”
