Darren Barnet may be engrossed in a complicated love triangle with Maitreyi Ramakrishnan and Ben Gross on Netflix’s Never Have I Ever, but off screen, that seems to be anything but the case. Based off his Instagram, Darren appears to be dating actress Mikaela Hoover. It’s unclear when they first began dating, but back in May, Darren shared a photo album from their trip to the Global Wildlife Center in Louisiana. He also paid tribute to her for her 37th birthday on July 12 by posting a silly photo of them together. “Happy birthday, love. Today is for you,” he captioned it.
Darrena and Mikaela are set to star together in Netflix’s upcoming romantic comedy Love Hard, so that’s likely how they met. The film also includes Jimmy O. Yang and Nina Dobrev and is set to premiere later this year.
