Cecily Strong on how she met her boyfriend

In April 2020 Cecily shared some excerpts of the diary-style essays she was writing for her memoir with Vulture. One of these excerpts contains details on how she met her latest boyfriend, which will be further explored in the book.

Cecily explains how they met at a Christmas party in 2019 and that her new agent introduced the two. Cecily Strong explains:

“I talk to the man with the mustache. He’s very cute. I have social anxiety, and I’m drunk and tired, so I have no idea what we talk about. He comes home with me. The next morning I’m a little more shy. He is less shy. “Can I give you my number?” he asks. I hand him the pink-flamingo pen my psychiatrist gave me that week. I find an old receipt, and he writes “Jack” and his phone number on the back.”

Is “Jack” Cecily Strong’s boyfriend’s name?

In the essay excerpts shared with Vulture, Cecily explains that she became ‘official’ with “Jack” on International Women’s Day 2020 (8 March 2020). They went to watch the U.S. Women’s National Team play against Spain in the SheBelieves Cup.

On 9 March 2020, Cecily shared to her Instagram followers what she did to celebrate IWD. In this Instagram post, Cecily says “a sweet John I know who came to the game with me and teared up like a good man would.” This fits with the story Cecily told to Vulture.

So, it could then be that Cecily Strong’s boyfriend is not called “Jack,” but John.

The couple both live in New York City.
