The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus and Emily Kinney are reportedly dating

Emily Kinney and Norman Reedus Dating

Daryl and Beth?! Former Walking Dead co-stars Norman Reedus and Emily Kinney are reportedly dating!

“They had a connection early on in the show, but the romance developed recently,” a source told Us Weekly. “They’re still pretty guarded about it.”

During the show, their characters were separated from the group for a few episodes and were ‘shipped by many fans. But, as with Daryl and Beth, Norman, 46, and Emily, 29, were just very good friends on set.

“Everyone reached out, though I remember Norman texted me — he’s so sweet,” she said, last December, of his reaction upon learning her character would be killed. She added that the only momento she keeps from her Walking Dead days is “this turtle shell Norman gave me that I take everywhere.”

The insider said the romance between Norman and Emily really blossomed after that point. (What girl doesn’t love a good turtle shell?) He was even spotted in the audience of one of Emily’s recent concerts.

“He was one of the first to support her at her concerts when she was still on the show,” the source said.

Even though they are no longer co-stars, Norman and Emily still have plenty of opportunities to get together — including an upcoming appearance at the Walker Stalker Con event in Florida.

      I really want to say they are mismatched and look horrible together. … But I can’t. :/

        As someone who always hoped they might at least make out once on the show, I’ve been picturing this match up for a while.

        But, darn.

          I really wanted him to get with Carol. *sigh* But this is okay too I guess. ; )

            Carol was definitely always #1.

            But when he swooped into the house with Beth in his arms, I had the “okay, they need to make out now” feelings arise.

      Looks like his Rep confirmed that they are NOT dating, which means I still have a chance… in my dreams.

  • Heather

    She’s 29?!?

    • Diana

      That was I thought the moment I saw that. I had always thought late teens, possibly 20….definitely not 29.

  • Bruja


    He can do better. She has always struck me as not as bright as Beth..

    • awoman

      Beth was supposed to be a naive child.

      • Bruja

        Exactly my point.
