Muir is a talented actor and reporter, and he is also incredibly good looking. In 2014, he appeared on People’s list of Sexiest Men Alive alongside actors such as Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba. Muir is very secretive about his love life. This piece will detail everything we know about his relationships. We can confirm that David isn’t married.
He was rumored to be in a relationship with ABC reporter Gio Benitez
It’s unclear whether Muir is gay or straight, and in 2015, he was rumored to be in a relationship with ABC colleague Gio Benitez.
The rumors emerged after Benitez and Muir were photographed together several times. Benitez put the rumors to bed after he got engaged to his boyfriend, Tommy DiDario, on 17th September 2015. Tommy and Benetiz got married in April 2016.
Kate Dries referred to Muir as her boyfriend in 2015
In October 2015, Kate posted an article on Jezebel with the title, Report Indicates My Boyfriend David Muir Is a ‘Monster.’ In the article, Kate wrote:
“David and I connected right from the start. ‘I thought Peter Jennings was the James Bond of evening news,’ he told me on our first date. I tried to remain calm because (little did he know) Peter was my first love and I didn’t want to make David feel uncomfortable. But Peter would quickly be pushed far from my mind during my courtship with David. I mean, will you look at this man?”
The article portrayed Kate as one of many Muir admirers, but there is no evidence that the two were in a relationship.
