There was a rumor going around on social media that Ted Lasso star Brett Goldstein might actually be a CGI character after fans noticed that he’s just a little too perfect. But the actor proved at Sunday night’s Emmy Awards that not only is he the real deal, but he’s also got a real-life girlfriend.
During his acceptance speech for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series, Goldstein paid homage to his on-screen character, Roy Kent, by mixing plenty of expletives into his list of people to thank. He also used the opportunity to tell his girlfriend—who according to Page Six is British comedian Beth Rylance—that he loves her.

On Tuesday, Rylance shared the clip of Goldstein’s speech on her Instagram account with the caption, “I wanna cry so bad, but I don’t think I can spare the moisture.” On Sunday, she also joked on Twitter, “Today is the day that my boyfriend goes to the Emmy’s as a Best Supporting Actor nominee and I am at home on my second load of laundry.” She followed that up with another tweet that read, “Just to confirm, my boyfriend is Kenan Thompson off of SNL.” Following Goldstein’s win, she added, “My godmother has just text [sic] me to say congratulations on my boyfriend’s Grammy award and this is why I love her.”
But this is hardly the first time Rylance has expressed her support for her boyfriend on social media. Throughout the U.K.’s pandemic lockdowns, the comedian would frequently share clips of Goldstein performing in online skits, and posted a selfie wearing his character’s soccer jersey in the show. Goldstein is also a writer on Ted Lasso, the show created by Jason Sudeikis who also won the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a comedy series. The show won four Emmys in total on Sunday night, including outstanding comedy series.
