Martin Freeman reportedly embarks on romance with 28-year-old actress Rachel Mariam

The Sun on Sunday reported on the romance and claims that a source said, “It’s still early days but they are getting along great.

“They spent quite a bit of time together at his home in north London because of Covid, but Rachel was able to meet some of her friends before the lockdown.

“They both love the same movies and Martin supports her career as an actress and writer.

Martin and his ex-partner Amanda were together from 2000 to 2016 and have two children together – a son named Joe and a daughter named Grace.

In 2018, Amanda opened up about her struggle to cope with the relationship breakdown.

A source close to Martin said it was the “first days” of the new couple

The 46-year-old told Red Magazine at the time: “I thought Martin was the love of my life. It wasn’t supposed to happen to us.

“I would wake up every morning with a sudden lurch.” Why do I feel bad? I wondered, in the darkness of the room I no longer shared with my partner.

“And then, a fraction of a second later, I would remember what had happened.” ‘Oh,’ I thought, as the tears started to fall.

She continued, “It was one of the darkest moments of my life but, although I didn’t know it at the time, it was also to mark the beginning of an extraordinary journey of self-discovery. .

Martin previously dated Amanda Abbington from 2000 to 2016 and they have two children together

“It’s always difficult. I still have huge swings but it’s understandable I think. ”

She added, at the time, “We still love each other – even if we’re not in love with each other – and neither of us sees our relationship as a failure.

“We have spent 16 wonderful years together and have two wonderful children. We are still talking and we are still giving each other advice. ”
