Mac Demarco has claimed that he has married his longterm girlfriend Kiera McNally and, on top of that, the couple are expecting their first child.
Having met each other aged 14— eventually getting together five years later—the couple are still going strong ten years later and DeMarco has regularly referenced McNally in his music.
For DeMarco, fatherhood has become a prevalent topic in his recent life having poured out some emotions on his previous record, This Old Dog. On that same album, the indie singer put together a number of love songs inspired by and dedicated to ‘Kiki’ and has never been shy to share his relationship with his fans.
While topless and on stage in Seattle, DeMarco made two announcements to his fans. Firstly, that he and Kiera had married and, secondly, that the couple were expecting their first child.
In a past interview with The Guardian, DeMarco was asked about his thoughts on writing music about being in love rather than the more cliched heartbreak lyrics, to which he answered: “I think that just being in love – being out of love, being in love, being confused by love, wanting love, not wanting love, being scared of love – it doesn’t matter which.
“There are so many things better than feeling nothing at all. Long-term relationships are like a fucking mountainscape, you know? Things go up, things go down. That’s the fun of it.”
Having managed to maintain such a healthy relationship for so long while thriving in an industry which forces him to travel away from home so often, DeMarco said the key to his love relationship was to “be kind. Be respectful. And be real.”
