By Lucy Cocoran
For anyone whose watched the new Top Gun (read: everyone), you're probably just as obsessed with Miles Teller as we are. If you've been obsessed with him for a long time (read: me), then you're likely well-versed in his personal life, from the time he saved a pregnant woman in a riptide to his secret drummer skills which he taught himself, there's plenty to love about the actor.
If you're a little late to hop aboard the Miles train, you might not have realised that he's actually married — cue sobs. It was always going to take a pretty epic love story for us to accept that he was taken, but his journey with Keleigh Sperry (now Keleigh Teller) has absolutely delivered.
Below, everything you need to know about the woman who stole Rooster's heart and their love story to date.

who is keleigh teller?

Keleigh is an actress with three credits to her name, per IMDB. She appeared in Taylor Swift's 2021 music video, I Bet You Think About Me (alongside Miles) and another music video in 2011. She also starred in a short film titled Dance in 2017. She's also worked as a model, posting several shots of her previous work to Instagram, which included a swimsuit and lingerie shoot.
Her name is actually pronounced 'Kelly' if you were unsure of how to say it, and she is one of six siblings.

how did keleigh and miles meet?

The pair met back in 2013 at a party for the band, the Black Keys. Speaking to Vogue in 2019, Miles told the publication that he wasn't sure of Keleigh's feelings at first.
"We both had mutual friends of the band," he recalled. "Keleigh had caught my eye early in the night, and we talked. I didn't think it went well, but after a few more attempts, I got her to dance with me, and a week later, we went on a date. After we met, I knew she was the one."
While he might not have been sure of her feelings, Keleigh reveals that she was instantly charmed by the actor, telling the publication that he was " so charming and charismatic. I adored him from the first moment we met."
In 2015, Miles praised Keleigh for being supportive during an interview with People magazine.
"Before her, I would never invite a girl into that world because I didn't think I could have both," he said. "She's allowed me to be able to really focus on acting and do what I want to do. She can come to set and visit me and hang out and doesn't really distract me from it."
In 2016, the couple attended a few red carpet events, including the MTV Movie Awards and the Met Gala: Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.

when did keleigh and miles get engaged?

In 2017, after four years of dating, Miles popped the question to Kelly while on South African safari.
"We were on an African safari so I brought the ring to Africa, which I was a little nervous about," the Only The Brave actor, 30, said. "I had our guide, early in the morning, tie a rose to a tree… [We] walked up to this nice scenic vista having coffee. She looked over and saw a rose and thought somebody had died. Which, whatever," he told People at the time.
Then, as she walked closer, she saw a note tied around the rose which read the dates "5/11/2013 -8/20/2017."
"I said, 'This is the day you became my girlfriend, and today was the last day you woke up as my girlfriend,'" Teller revealed.
"I'll never get the image out of my head of him down on one knee with a tear in his eye," Keleigh told People. "He really thought about every detail and was so nervous!" she added, before calling the proposal 'perfect.'

when did keleigh and miles get married?

In September 2019, Miles and Keleigh tied the knot during a laidback ceremony in Maui, Hawaii. The Sperry family enjoyed annual vacations to the magical island, so the destination was a sweet nod to this tradition.
The couple's nuptials took place in a Catholic church, followed by a sunset reception at the Ritz Carlton Kapalua Hotel. The bride wore a gown by Monique Lhuillier along with her mother's necklace, a very meaningful piece which her sisters had worn at their weddings. The tropical jungle-themed reception party saw Keleigh change into a Katie May dress, before dancing the night away with family and friends.
Keleigh and Miles definitely share a lowkey kind of love and are usually quite private, but she's been blessing us with unseen Miles content on Instagram and TikTok since the Top Gun release, so if you're keen for more Miles, go and give her a follow.
