Teddy Geiger is dating Schitt’s Creek star Emily Hampshire
US songwriter and producer Teddy Geiger has revealed she’s in a relationship with Schitt’s Creek actor Emily Hampshire.
Geiger, who publicly came out as trans in October 2017, praised her girlfriend on Instagram on August 30.
Posting a photo of Hampshire, Geiger added the caption: “I am so happy this woman is alive… with the sound of music. She is a song I will sing for a thousand years.
“She fills my heart with the sound of music. My heart wants to sing every song it hears.”
Hampshire, who plays Stevie Budd in Canadian TV sitcom Schitt’s Creek, has shared a number of loved-up photos of the couple.
In one snap, she said: “Just me & my girlfriend. ❤️ ♀️ @teddygeiger.”
And, in another, she gushed: “God I miss this sweet little minx .”
On Wednesday, Hampshire tagged Geiger in a photo of her holding a placard of actor Elle Fanning at the Toronto International Film Festival.
“My fave pic of the fest: my gorgeous gf @teddygeiger with @ellefanning (both in florals #tiff18,” she said.
She also shared a photo of the pair in a photobooth in Tuscany.
She told The New York Times: “I can remember back to being 5 and looking in the mirror, feeling like a girl and wanting that.
“But growing up in Rochester, there were limited resources. I’d never met a trans person before.”
In May, singer Shawn Mendes voiced support for his long-term collaborator and songwriter Geiger, saying people should “live how they want to live.”
Mendes was speaking to Billboard about how straight men can support the LGBTQ+ community.
“Just open your eyes and open your mind,” he said, “because, for me, going through one of my closest friends [Geiger] going through a very big transition period in her life, was incredible to watch.”
