Previously, Brendan Fraser was married to actress Afton Smith from 1998 to 2009. The duo shares three sons: Griffin, Holden, and Leland.

Although it is unclear when Brendan began dating makeup artist Jeanne Moore, fans first caught wind of their relationship in August 2022, when Jeanne posted a sweet tribute on Instagram to Holden for his birthday.

In the since-deleted post, she wrote, "Happy happy birthday, Holden!!! You are such an incredible, sweet, kind, funny, and talented young man! It is an honor to know you and to be a part of your life!! Happy 18th birthday!!! Love you!!!"

Jeanne and Brendan made their red carpet premiere as a couple in September 2022 at the Venice Film Festival and continued attending awards shows together through the end of 2022. Jeanne also accompanied Brendan and his sons to the 2023 Academy Awards.

In his Academy Award acceptance speech, Brendan, who does not have social media, shouted out his family and Jeanne in a declaration chock-full of nautical references. "And the air on the line to the surface is on a launch being watched over by some people in my life, like my sons, Holden, and Leland, and Griffin. I love you, Griffy. My manager, JoAnne Colonna; Jennifer Plant; and my best first mate, Jeanne."
