  • Emma Stone has been married to husband Dave McCary since 2020.

  • The couple met in 2016 on "Saturday Night Live," where McCary worked as a writer and director.

  • The couple welcomed a daughter in 2021. Here's all you need to know.

Emma Stone had a long list of people to thank from the podium on Sunday night after winning best performance by a female actor in a motion picture — musical or comedy — for her role in "Poor Things."

The first name on her lips was husband Dave McCary.

She married "SNL" segment director Dave McCary, whom she first met while shooting a sketch in 2016.

During her most recent appearance on the sketch comedy show in December, Stone referenced their romance in her opening monologue, saying: "I've made so many memories here and so many friends, and I even met my husband at 'SNL.'"

The cameras then cut to the creator and producer of the late-night sketch show, Lorne Michaels, as Stone jokingly blew kisses at him.

Here's a complete timeline of Stone and McCary's relationship.

When Stone appeared on the show for the third time in 2016, she delivered one of her most memorable performances in a sketch titled "Wells for Boys," a Fisher-Price commercial parody about plastic toy wells parents can purchase for their sensitive sons.

According to People, it was during the filming of this sketch that Stone met McCary, who had been working as a segment director for the show since 2013.

Just a little over six months after their introduction, the "Easy A" star attended the premiere of McCarys' directorial debut, "Brigsby Bear" starring "SNL" star Kyle Mooney.

While Stone chose not to walk the red carpet, a fan captured a video of her and McCary leaving with friends, which sparked speculation that the pair were dating.

The rumors of the blossoming relationship came almost two years after Stone split from Andrew Garfield. The two met on the set of "The Amazing Spider-Man" in 2011 and dated for four years before their 2015 split.

The couple laid low for much of 2018, and they weren't spotted together in public until early 2019 when they attended a basketball game between the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers. The pair were happily photographed sitting courtside together.

Days later, McCary was seen supporting Stone at the SAG Awards, where the actor was nominated for an award for her performance in "The Favourite." While Stone walked the red carpet solo, she was photographed sitting beside McCary inside the event.

"We are thrilled to partner with our friends at A24," they said in a joint statement to Deadline in August 2020. "Their commitment to thoughtful and original storytelling and embracing artists' visions feels rare and vital, and we are incredibly grateful that they support our passion to do the same."
