Martin Starr’s professional life is well-known as it is a success. But a major part of his personal life is not known. Though he has been in the spotlight for more than two decades, he rarely mentions his dating or romantic life

In 2014 he was rumored to be in a relationship with his girlfriend Kate Gorney. However, this rumor was never confirmed. 

In October 2022, Starr posted a picture with a woman named Alex Gehring, introducing her as his current partner and their two-year anniversary falls on the same month. The picture also showed off her engagement ring confirming that Gehring is actually his fiancée and they had gotten engaged on October 7, 2022.

Starr and Gehring are yet to share their wedding/marriage plans. They do not have any children together and needless to say, Starr has never been embroiled in divorce rumors.
