Who Is Jenna Ortega's Boyfriend?

Over the past years, there have been a few rumors about Jenna and her love life, but as of 2022, the Stuck in the Middle famed actress is not seeing anybody. 

Jenna, in the past, was linked to the Shazam! movie star Asher Angel. They made headlines as they dressed up as Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande for Just Jared's Annual Halloween Party.

The two were seen in the premiere of the movie Venom as well. Since then, the rumors between the two fizzled as both remained silent on their relationship status.

In 2017, rumors swirled about Jenna dating the singer Jacob Sartorius. The two young stars were seen hanging out a lot in New York City. It was later known that the pair starred together in Jacob's music video Chapstick.

No show is complete without dating rumors between the co-stars, and Jenna had one as well. The 20 years old was rumored to be dating her co-star Isaak Presley. The two starred in the hit show Stuck in the Middle.

It was weird for the fans to ship the two as they played the role of brother and sister in the show. But their strong chemistry on the sets and off of it was unmissable.

On Jenna's 17th Birthday, Issak posted a thread with her and added a lengthy caption that said, 'Jenna, you have, without a doubt, impacted my life so much. You are the most resilient and strong girl, and I am so proud of you. You have faced so many obstacles at such a young age and surpassed every expectation of you.

'You excel at every facet of what you do. You use your voice for change and positivity, and I'm so so so freaking proud of you. Enjoy 17 and keep being the person you are. Love you, Junebug. Miss you lots.'

Jenna replied to the posts thanking him and even saying she was grateful to star alongside him for four years. 

The Wednesday star has never confirmed any of her dating relationships in the past, and maybe she will date someone officially in the future and declare her love for the special person.
