Alexander Skarsgard has gained huge popularity thanks to his acting skills. His amazing performances in numerous movies and TV shows have kept the audiences talking about him.
But the fans of the Swedish actor have been talking about another thing in recent times, which isn’t related to his professional life at all. Infact, it’s his personal life that has been making quite the noise.
Since early 2022, Skarsgard has been rumored to be dating a fellow Swedish actress named Tuva Novotny. And with Novotny confirming her pregnancy on April 29, 2022, the romance rumors have fueled even more.
People have been saying that Skarsgard might be the father of Novotny’s child. But the thing is that neither of them has confirmed or denied their togetherness. However, some third parties have confirmed it. Have a look!
Alexander Skarsgard and Tuva Novotny are confirmed to be dating
Skarsgard and Novotny’s relationship was first confirmed by Ann Söderlund and Sanna Lundell in their podcast Inte din morsa.
On February 4, 2022, episode of the podcast titled ‘Kärlek utan ansvar’ [Love Without Responsibility in English], the two Swedish journalists took up the togetherness of possibly the two of Sweden’s biggest international celebrities, i.e., Skarsgard and Novotny.

Skarsgard and Novotny’s relationship came up when the podcast hosts talked about Lundell being alongside her actor husband, Mikael Persbrandt, during the recording of Lars von Trier’s new series titled The Kingdom of Exodus — where Persbrandt stars alongside Novotny and Skarsgård.
“It’s still so funny that we have talked about it several times that they are a couple, that they have been for several years and they are like two of our biggest international celebrities and no one writes about it. I think it’s so strange,” Söderlund said.
Lundell then followed up with speculation and said, “I guess no one has gone out and denied it. But it feels like the Swedish media has just decided that ‘we should not talk about this’ because then maybe they will never be allowed to interview Tuva Novotny again. I do not know.”
After that, Söderlund mentioned that she had previously talked to Novotny about her relationship with Skarsgård and that the topic is yet to be publicized.
“When I recorded my mini-role in the Bonus family, I talked to Tuva about that,” Söderlund said.
As for what Novotny’s reply was when Söderlund said that, the actress told the podcast host that she also doesn’t know why it is so as she and Skarsgård have been together for several years.
“We have not denied it and it is not something we are trying to keep secret. It’s the strangest thing in the world,” Novotny further told Söderlund.
Months later, when online gossip site Deuxmoi conducted a Q&A on their Instagram handle on April 19, 2022, one fan was curious as to who was Skarsgård’s girlfriend and if the actor had split with Novotny.
In reply, Deuxmoi said that people are telling him that Skarsgård’s girlfriend is Novotny. As for the question of break up, Deuxmoi’s owner had attached a screenshot of a chat they had with someone else – who was from Sweden.
The chat mentioned the details from the already-mentioned podcast. “I am no expert but I am a fellow Swede and I could totally see them being able to keep it private. Swedes like their personal space,” the chat read.

In the end, the anonymous Swede said that they don’t see Söderlund and Lundell lie about Skarsgard and Novotny’s relationship as they wouldn’t “really benefit from lying about it.”

Contradicting Novotny’s statement about not trying to keep her togetherness with Skarsgard a secret is her alleged boyfriend himself — much like what the anonymous Swede said about people of Sweden liking their personal space.
On April 17, 2022, The Northman star conversed with the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet. During that, the interviewer told the actor that he is usually outspoken, but he doesn’t say a word when it comes to talking about his romance rumors with Novotny.
Skarsgard once again didn’t say anything related to his relationship with his rumored girlfriend. But, he said that he tries to concentrate more on talking about his professional life and keeps his personal life out of the media.

His words were, “No, but I try to concentrate on talking about the professional and keeping the private [life] private.”
After that, he was asked if he does or doesn’t deny his relationship with Novotny; he simply laughed and switched the topic of discussion to football.
As a result, fans of Skarsgard and Novotny are still hopeful that Novotny and Skarsgard might be together and declare their love publicly sometime soon.
Before Skarsgard’s romance rumors with Novotny, the Swedish actor was in a relationship with Amanda Seyfried (in 2008), Evan Rachel Wood (in 2009), Kate Bosworth (from 2009 to 2011), and Alexa Chung (from 2015 to 2017).
