Love life, and relationships
Olivia was in a relationship with the photographer James Law from 2013 until 2018; the reason for their break-up is unknown, however, after she deleted the pictures featuring them together from her Instagram account, they also unfollowed each other on this social media network, and it was thus clear that this love story had ended.
In May 2018, she announced that her new boyfriend is an actor whose name is Sam Lerner; he was born under the zodiac sign of Libra on 27 September 1992, in Los Angeles, California USA; he is perhaps known best for his role as Geoff Schwartz in the series “The Goldbergs”.
Their mutual friend, Shayne Topp, introduced them to each other, and on their first anniversary on 29 April 2019, they thanked him for that, because if it weren’t for him, they would have never met. After a few months, they started living together in Los Angeles, and they are still co-habiting as of September 2021.
The two seem to enjoy in their love, according to Sam’s post on his Instagram profile, which he posted on Olivia’s birthday, claiming that he’s so lucky to have her in his life, and she replied that she loves him. However, the couple is yet to marry, and don’t have children.
