Lena Dunham Wishes Boyfriend Luis Felber a Happy Birthday in Sweet Tribute: ‘I Am the Luckiest’
Lena Dunham is expressing her gratitude for boyfriend Luis Felber as she celebrates his birthday.
The Girls star shared a sweet Instagram tribute to Felber on Wednesday, marking the first time she has publicly identified him after revealing earlier this week that she was dating someone new.
“Feliz Cumpleanos Luis 💕” she began in the caption. “When I was 3 weeks old in downtown Manhattan, I had no idea a baby was being born in England (Winchester, no less!) who would rocket into my life- wearing a lime green polar fleece snood- and challenge so many of my beliefs about myself and the world with magical abandon.”
Dunham, 35, continued, “Everyone who comes into contact with you- creatively, emotionally, accidentally- is lucky. But I am the luckiest, because that snood is now in our shared chest of drawers.”
Back in January 2020, Dunham revealed she was “totally single” after breaking off an engagement to another unnamed partner.
“In January, all I tweeted about was how men are basically refried beans in human form,” the writer-producer went on to say in her Monday tweet. “What I’m saying is, don’t quit before the miracle, kids.”
Dunham’s last public relationship was with music producer/songwriter Jack Antonoff. PEOPLE confirmed in January 2018 that the pair split after more than five years together.
In January 2020, Dunham opened up about her relationship status to Cosmopolitan UK, telling the publication she was single but that one boyfriend, post-Antonoff, had proposed with the lace of a Timberland boot while they were snowed in at her parents’ apartment.

She went on to explain that she was taking time away from the dating game.
“I just went, ‘You know what? I’ve been dating since I was 15 years old. I’m allowed to take a break,’ ” Dunham said.
“Sobriety for me means so much more than just not doing drugs. It also means that I abstain from negative relationships,” Dunham, who celebrated two years being sober in April 2020, continued. “It means I’ve taken a hiatus from dating, which has been amazing for me.”
