Us confirmed earlier this month that the Girls creator, 31, and the Bleachers frontman, 33, had called it quits after five years together. A rep for Dunham told Us that the split was amicable.
Dunham confirmed the news during an Instagram Live session on January 9, telling fans that she was still wearing a ring that Antonoff gave her. “Love is a really cool, powerful, eternal thing,” she said at the time. “It doesn’t have to be defined the way, we in Western culture, define it as beginnings and ends.”
