Who is Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon)'s girlfriend? Nobody knows for sure. Maybe she doesn't exist. As far as we know, officially, Norman is single (line up, ladies!), but he could just not be fessing up to having a special lady in his life. A lady like, as the rumor mill speculates, model Cecilia Singley.
Many forums and fansites (of, admittedly, questionable reliability) have noticed that photos of Cecilia with Norman or his cat, Eye in the Dark, periodically appear on her Instagram account (which is now private) and then go missing.
Who knows, though? They could just be good friends. And some of these photos are from as far back as April, so even if they were dating then, the situation could be entirely different now.
Norman's most notable previous flame was Victoria's Secret model Helena Christensen, his partner for five years, from 1998 to 2003. The pair have a child together, Mingus Lucien Reedus, who was born on October 13, 1999, and just turned 15. Helena and Mingus watch The Walking Dead together every week, but last we heard she was dating Interpol frontman Paul Banks.
For how often Norman posts on his Instagram account, he's a pretty private dude. But hey, if he doesn't have a girlfriend, that at least gives us the tiniest glimmer of hope, right?
Assuming Norman is single, let's play hot celeb matchmaker for a second! While Norman is in his 40s, he's youthful enough for someone younger — say, someone that's the same level of both dark and fun, likeThe Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev might be a another option; we know that the 25-year-old loves animals — like Norman does — and older men, from her relationship with sexy TV vampire Ian Somerhalder, who is 10 years her senior. But someone in her 20s might not make a lasting match!
We're not sure if Norman’s 49-year-old costar Melissa McBride, who plays the woman often considered Daryl's OTP, Carol Peletier, is taken, but she could be a fantastic on- and off-screen option for everyone's favorite zombie slayer, any awkward co-working issues notwithstanding. 41-year-old Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig reportedly split from her boyfriend, Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti, last year, and we'd love to see them together, too — they both top our can't-believe-they're-over-40 list.
We know that Norman loves a combination of beauty and brains; he made a baby with Helena Christensen, after all! If he were to go for someone similar, why not Cameron Russell? Her TED Talk on modeling is not only super-smart; it's something that fellow model Norman could possibly relate to.
Speaking of gorgeous ladies with similar professions, Michelle Dockery, who plays Lady Mary Crawley on Downton Abbey, isn't dating anyone we know about. Neither is 29-year-old TWD co-star Emily Kinney (Beth Greene), although there's that whole don't-crap-where-you-eat issue. We're not sure whether or not Laurie Holden (Andrea) is available, but if she is, her character's Season 3 death could keep things from getting awkward — not that it stopped this pair from kissing each other on the mouth back in March.
Of course, Norman could always date someone not-so-famous… like a fan, perhaps? A gal can dream!
What do you think? If he were dating someone, would he tell us?
