Who Is Chris D'Elia's Girlfriend And Baby Mama? Everything To Know About Kristin Taylor

Comedian Chris D'Elia is facing his fair share of scrutiny right now. Recently, multiple claims of sexual harassment on his part surfaced on social media.

Many of the women who now accusing him were underage at the time of the alleged harassment they say they endured.

And now TMZ has broken yet another such story, announcing that an unidentified young woman just filed a lawsuit against D'Elia "for allegedly violating federal child sexual exploitation and child pornography laws." The outlet was quick to point that the Jane Doe in question "is not suing because the two allegedly had sex when they met in Connecticut. The age of consent in CT is 16."

D'Elia has had a lot going on in the past few years. Not only did his stand-up special "No Pain" premiere on Netflix, but he and his girlfriend became the proud parents of their first child. And until recently, he'd done a pretty good job of keeping that girlfriend's identity under wraps.

Who is Chris D'Elia's girlfriend?

Thanks to the sleuthing of a few fans, we now know that the 40-year old comedian is dating stop-motion animator Kristin Taylor, the creator behind Hi Big Dog Media.

It sounds like things between them are getting pretty serious (what with their having had a baby and all).

So, who is Kristin Taylor? This is what we know so far about her, and the harassment claims against D'Elia.

Until recently, fans didn't know much about who D'Elia was dating. Despite speaking about himself in his stand-up routines and on his podcast, "Congratulations With Chris D'Elia," D'Elia doesn't tend to share many details about his personal life.

He's made it clear that he does have a significant other, but when he talks about her, he doesn't use her name — instead, he refers to her in a vague way, like calling her "my lady."

But thanks to the sleuthing of fans on Reddit, people put the pieces together and realized that D'Elia is dating Kristin Taylor — and has been for a few years now, as evidenced by photos that have surfaced of the two of them together.

As mentioned above, Kristen Taylor is a stop-motion animator.

Taylor works as a stop-motion animator at Hi Big Dog Media, a company she founded herself.

"I am a stop-motion animator, and the creator of HI BIG DOG Media," Taylor writes in the bio on her company website. "Born and raised in North Carolina, I made a quick stop in the heartland to earn my Bachelors degree from the University of Missouri. It was here that I met and adopted my angel dog, Cooper, who is the inspiration behind this media group."

Like D'Elia, Taylor keeps a low profile online.

What she shares on her company's website is just about the extent of the information that exists out there about Taylor. it seems like she's a pretty private person, and honestly, one can hardly blame.

In fact, Taylor's Instagram account and Twitter feed are both private.

In December 2019, D'Elia recently announced that he and Taylor were expecting a baby.

He shared the news that Taylor was pregnant during an episode of his podcast, although he didn't go into much detail.

"I've gotta tell you something, dude. I'm having a ... we're havin' a baby," he said at the time. "That's right. Now I don't share this a lot — I don't share my personal life a lot. Dude, your boy's having a ... baby. Does it make me nervous to talk about it? Yes, because, you know, that's real life. And it's not just me bullshitting and making fart noises.";

Though D'Elia's Wikipedia page once noted that their son Calvin was born in 2020, that detail has since been deleted. Taylor's Instagram, however, does identify her simply as "Cal's mom."

There aren't many photos of the two of them together out there.

Being that Taylor and D'Elia have kept their relationship almost entirely off of social media, it's no surprise that there aren't many photos of them together out there, although, in 2018, an eagle-eyed fan did manage to find a few of them looking very coupled up, though it's hard to say where these photos came from.

D'Elia has never gotten particularly personal on social media. Hearing D'Elia's podcast and looking at his Instagram account, it seems he keeps things all business whenever possible.

Multiple sexual harassment claims have come out against D'Elia.

In June 2016, a woman named Simone came forward on Twitter with sexual harassment allegations against the comedian. She shared screenshots of conversations she claimed had occurred between herself and D'Elia back in 2014. At the time, she was only 16.

Calling D'Elia out by name in a detailed thread, in which she wrote, "For the longest time i thought it was embarrassing for me that i was interacting with this older man but he was the one who DM'd me on twitter and was the one who was twice my age and was the one that used the power imbalance between us to his advantage so f*** chris d'elia ...

"I am also definitely not the only underage girl he did this too. just an FYI. For the longest time i thought this was just a funny story to tell at parties when i realized what happened isn't normal and that he was and could still be doing this to younger girls and it's my job to say something."

Simone also explained that she never actually met D'Elia, because she already had a boyfriend who was her own age.

It didn't take long for the tweets to go viral and many more accusers came forward with similar claims against D'Elia.

Most of the women who are accusing D'Elia of harassment were also underage during their alleged encounters with him.

Some female comedians joined the conversation, including Lane Moore who tweeted, "Who could've known Chris D'Elia was a creep other than anyone who's ever looked at him or heard him say things."
