A look At Abigail Breslin and Ira Kunyansky’s relationship
Following her purported relationships with The Sandman’s Tom Sturridge in 2016 and Freddie Highmore in 2017, Breslin dated Ira Kunyansky. While it is unclear how the pair met, Breslin and Kunyansky started dating in 2017. Breslin first posted one of Kunyansky’s images in November 2017. The team made its public debut two years later at the 2019 Tony Awards’ red carpet celebration. Breslin said last year on The Tonight Show, starring Jimmy Fallon, that Kunyansky had no clue she was an actress when they first met. She told Fallon:
“He had no clue who I was when we first met, and I told him I was heading to Los Angeles. He was like, ‘Oh for what reason?’ and I was like, ‘Well, I’m an actress,’ and he was like, ‘Good luck.'”
In addition, on their fourth anniversary in 2021, Abigail Beslin created a collage of herself and Ira Kunyansky. In the comments, the actress stated:
“I adore you, my perfect.”
Last year, the New York native praised Ira Kunyansky for being there for her when the actress’ father, Michael, died from COVID complications. Abigail Breslin described Kunyansky as “the finest boyfriend/best friend” a few months after her father’s death. While Abigail Breslin is officially engaged to her fiancé, no wedding date has been determined.
