Is Maya Hawke Dating Christian Lee Hutson?

It seems the 26-year-old is in a committed relationship with the musician! Maya revealed in June 2024 on the Zach Sang Show that she has been seeing her not-so-mysterious beau for some time now. The actress shared that the two first started off as friends before they began working on her album, Chaos Angel, but things quickly grew between them.

“We’ve been friends for four years. I cannot  recommend highly enough dating your friends. It’s the best. They know you, they understand that you’re a person and a human being that has dated other people who has dated them. Who has feelings and is a living, breathing human not just like a piece of paper to project image of perfect girlfriend onto.”

The singer further revealed that some of the tracks on her upcoming album are inspired by past romances, but that wasn’t an issue when working with Christian.

“It’s the best to feel seen in that way. To feel like someone you’re falling in love with can help you work on a song about the time you were in love with somebody else.”

Relationship rumors first started between the two in December 2023. Maya and Christian were spotted packing on some major PDA in New York at the time.
