Who is Dylan Meyer? – Meet Kristen Stewart’s Screenwriter Fiancée

As Kristen Stewart and Dylan Meyer’s relationship continues way past the two-year mark, things between them are stronger than ever—to the point where they’re ready to get married. On November 2, 2021, Stewart revealed the two are engaged to Howard Stern, and Meyer popped the question.

“We’re marrying, we’re totally gonna do it,” Stewart said. “I wanted to be proposed to, so I think I very distinctly carved out what I wanted and she nailed it. We’re marrying, it’s happening.”

It’s a decidedly new chapter for Stewart, who opened up in a recent issue of InStyle about being “sort of cagey” in previous relationships. Meyer and Stewart were first romantically linked in summer 2019, but the couple actually met six years before on a movie set, Stewart told Howard Stern last November. They later reconnected at a birthday party for a mutual friend. “The day that I met her, all bets were off,” Stewart remembered. “I was like, ‘Where have I been and how have I not known you?’ She’s been, like, living in LA alongside my life somehow but not ever converging?”

The actress even told the radio host that she was ready to propose in November 2019, two years before it actually happened.

In July 2021, the two even sparked secret marriage rumors when they were photographed wearing rings on their left ring fingers, although they never even announced they were engaged. In September 2021, the two were photographed together again, signaling their relationship remains on and strong.

Ahead, everything we know about Meyer, including her screenwriting career and how she and Stewart spent quarantine.

The couple began dating after Stewart ended things with model Stella Maxwell.

Rumors about Meyer and Stewart’s relationship began in August 2019 when the pair was seen kissing on a New York City stoop. The sighting came less than a month after Stewart was photographed kissing on-off girlfriend Stella Maxwell on a yacht in Italy. A source told E! at the time that while “it will always be very easy for Kristen to fall back with Stella,” she’s focused on her new relationship with Meyer.

“Kristen is spending time with Dylan and very happy about it,” the insider told E! News. “She was seeing Stella for a little bit while it worked, but now she has moved on with Dylan.” The source added, “Kristen isn’t holding back at all and loves being with her. They are moving quickly and always together.”

Stewart confirmed the fast-paced nature of their romance during her November interview with Stern, revealing to him that she told Meyer she loved her two weeks into dating. “It was like really late, and we were in some shitty bar, and her friends were there or whatever, and they like walked out, and I was just like, ‘Oh man, I’m so f*cking in love with you. Done,'” she recalled. “It wasn’t like a thing, and also it was like so obvious. It just is.” Stewart later added of their connection, “We’re both from L.A. and we really love L.A. We’re both kind of like, scumbags. We both felt like trolls as kids. We’re so similar but different. She’s a writer; she’s brilliant.”

The pair went Instagram official in October 2019.

Although Stewart herself doesn’t have a public Instagram, Meyer shared a first glimpse into the couple’s relationship last October. She posted a black-and-white snap of a polaroid where the couple can be seen kissing. “Find me under the covers hiding from the happiness police. 🖤,” she captioned the post.

Six months later, Meyer shared a birthday tribute for Stewart on the ‘gram, writing, “It’s my absolute favorite person’s birthday and I’m wishing everyone the volume of beautiful feeling I feel toward her. It’s a short ride on this earth, spend your time with someone that inspires you to be the best version of yourself and lights your shit on fire.”

Her Instagram aesthetic is cats and nature.

When Meyer isn’t gushing about Stewart, her social media is filled with a ton of nature and animal photos. You’ll find pictures of her cats Zsa Zsa and Snack in various scenarios, as well as outdoor shots from around Los Angeles.

Stewart said she was ready to propose to Meyer in November 2019.

The couple may keep their romance private, but that doesn’t mean things aren’t serious between them. During her November 2019 interview with Stern, Stewart got very candid about her feelings toward Meyer. She told Stern that she “can’t f*cking wait” to propose to Meyer and said she would “absolutely” get married.

“Yeah, I want to be, like, somewhat reasonable about it, but I think good things happen fast,” Stewart continued, telling Stern she has a plan for how she’ll pop the question. “I can’t say right now, because she’ll find out.” Stewart also said that her matrimony plans weren’t “tied to any weird sort of convention; it’s just, like, when you know, you know.”

They spent quarantine together.

Meyer and Stewart kept a low-profile during stay-at-home orders but made made a rare outing in June 2020 for a coffee run in L.A. The Daily Mail captured photos of the couple wearing casual gray and black outfits, masks, and sunglasses while on their errand.

The outlet also published photos of the couple participating in a Black Lives Matter protest in Los Angeles earlier this month, following the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and others at the hands of police.

Sources told E! in October 2020 that Stewart and Meyer attended an intimate baby shower for Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund. (Stewart and Hedlund co-starred together in 2012’s On the Road.) They joined the likes of Camilla Morrone (Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend) and Lily Kershaw to celebrate the upcoming arrival of Roberts and Hedlund’s son.

Stewart has used Meyer’s Instagram.

Stewart, who next stars in the LGBTQ holiday rom-com Happiest Season, doesn’t have a ’gram. However, she used her girlfriend’s platform to urge people to vote in the upcoming election. “I turned the mic over to Kristen because she had some things to say and doesn’t have her own account. Happy #nationalvoterregistrationday!” Meyer captioned a selfie of Stewart in a “VOTE” tee on September 22. Kristen wrote, via Meyer’s account:

“I never do this but for anyone who has not registered to vote please take this opportunity to feel HEARD. And not hopeless. I am voting because I WANT to believe in our country. Because I believe in climate change. I believe in systemic racism. I believe in freedom of speech and the right to assemble. I believe in gun control. I believe that women have a right to make choices about their own bodies. I believe people have the right to live and love and identify however they feel in their hearts without fear. I believe that people care about each other. So try and have a lovely Tuesday and vote for your fucking lives.”

Meyer also shared a black-and-white photo of herself and Stewart to encourage voting. “I think I might chew my fingers off from nerves today but here’s a sweet photo @lindseybyrnes took. I really hope you vote. There are lots of crucial issues on your ballot besides the presidency and your voice truly does make a difference. The opportunity to have a say in the laws that govern you is precious, please don’t waste it,” she captioned the snap.

Meyer celebrated Stewart’s 31st birthday with a sweet tribute.

“Life sure is sweeter with this cute little family,” she wrote. “Happy birthday, kiddo. You knock my socks off.”

Meyer and Stewart sparked marriage rumors in July 2021.

LaineyGossip pointed out that Stewart and Meyer were photographed at LAX in July 2021 wearing rings on their left ring finger. The two never confirmed wedding rumors or that Stewart even proposed to Meyer at this point. Meyer and Stewart, throughout their relationship, have managed to keep most details private and out of the limelight.

Stewart announced her engagement to Meyer in November 2021.

On November 2, Stewart told Howard Stern that Meyer popped the question.

“We’re marrying, we’re totally gonna do it,” Stewart said. “I wanted to be proposed to, so I think I very distinctly carved out what I wanted and she nailed it. We’re marrying, it’s happening.”

Stewart joked she and Meyer may elope in January 2022 and have “unceremonial” wedding plans.

During her appearance on Stephen Colbert’s talk show, Stewart addressed wedding planning—and how they may just elope. “I want to have a big party or something,” she said. “I’m so unceremonial. I think we might just go do it this weekend or something, I don’t know, and then, like, just hang out with everyone afterwards,” Stewart said.

Meyer and Stewart are friends with Ashley Benson, who shared photos of them together at Disneyland.

It isn’t often Stewart and Meyer’s private life with friends is documented on social media, but Ashley Benson gave the world a rare glimpse into their dynamic in January 2022. The former Pretty Little Liars actress shared a group shot of Stewart and Meyer alongside each other and friends at Disneyland. “Family trips to Disney @cjromero @spillzdylz @sweetsuzieq @michael,” Benson captioned the shot, tagging Meyer’s Instagram.

Stewart spoke this month about how blessed she feels having her personal life and career thrive at the same time. “I’m living a simulation, it’s too good,” Stewart told E!. “You run through the list, and I go, like, is that possible? Right now, I’m definitely feeling it. It’s not lost on me any second of any day. I will tell you that.”

They attended the 2022 Oscars together.

To top off an eventful awards season, Meyer and Stewart stepped out together at the 2022 Academy Awards, where Stewart is nominated for Best Actress for her role in Spencer. The duo, matching in black and white suits, posed together in the red carpet and engaged in some PDA in front of the cameras. They held hands as photos snapped and shared a quick kiss before Meyer let Stewart pose solo.

In November 2022, Stewart drove her fiancée around Los Angeles.

On Saturday, December 3, the pair were spotted tooling around Los Angeles in their Dodge van like any suburban couple. They were headed to a friend’s house and dressed comfortably for the afternoon. Stewart was behind the wheel and smoking a cigarette as she navigated the quiet streets. The Twilight actress was wearing black Adidas sweatpants with white stripes and a black sports bra under a hoodie. She paired the look with white Nike sneakers and sunglasses. After being a blonde for quite a while, Stewart has gone brunette with a short chop.

Meyer was also dressed casually and in sunglasses. Sunday, December 4, was Meyer’s 35th birthday, so there may have been fancier plans ahead for the couple.
