“Everyone messes up in relationships and has peaks and valleys in their personal lives,” she added in an interview with InStyle Hair.“When I realized it wasn’t the end of the world and I would keep on standing, I knew it was going to be OK.”

The Phantom Of The Opera actress revealed she was dating Esmail when they appeared together for the June, 2014, premiere of Esmail’s flick, Comet. Since then, the couple has been head over heels in love. In September, Rossum spoke highly of her then-boyfriend, explaining that he allowed her to have a female-centered celebration for her 28th birthday.
“We went to the opera and saw Traviata. And then we had a dinner party at my house. It was nine girls and my boyfriend,” Rossum said. “Poor thing, or lucky him.”
“He’s a bit of a nerd,” Rossum admitted during an interview on Live! With Kelly & Michael in October of last year, according to Us Weekly. “He doesn’t know chivalry too well, so we have to bust his chops a little bit and tell him every time a woman stood up and went to the restroom, he had to stand up.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
