They have continued to work together, collaborating on the films Frances Ha and Mistress America, both of which they co-wrote.

Gerwig is best-known for her directorial debut on 2017’s critically acclaimed coming-of-age drama Lady Bird, for which she earned two Academy Award nominations for best director and best original screenplay.

She became only the fifth woman in history to score a best director nod. This is Gerwig’s first child.

Baumbach has a son from his marriage with the actress Jennifer Jason Leigh.
