Barry Keoghan appears to have confirmed his split from longtime girlfriend Alyson Kierans.

The Irish actor, 31, was reported to have parted ways with Alyson last summer after the birth of their 15-month-old son Brando.

In an interview with GQ magazine, Barry was asked about the reports the couple had gone their separate ways.

He said: ‘She’s done a great job, and she’s an incredible mother.’ The publication noted he offered no further information on the split.

The Saltburn star discussed fatherhood in the interview, saying he feels an ‘enormous amount of pressure’ to be a good dad.

He added: ‘I can’t get the little boy off my mind. It’s beautiful. Y’know, it’s crazy, but when he looks at you, you feel like the most important person in the world.

‘That’s the effect he has on me. He smiles at you and you’re like, “Wow, you’re smiling at me like that? I don’t deserve that, but anyways, thanks.”

At the time reports of the split first emerged, it was said the pair were ‘determined to do the best for their son’ after they decided to break up following rows about late night partying.

A source told The Sun: ‘They’ve grown apart over recent months and things have finally come to a head. As far as she’s concerned, it’s over.’

Irish actor Barry, who won a BAFTA for his supporting role in The Banshees of Inisherin, met dentist Alyson in a London bar back in February 2021.

The couple made their red carpet debut in October of that year and they put on a very loved-up display as they packed on the PDA while posing for snaps together.

They then confirmed they were expecting their first child together in June 2022 and welcomed their son Brando just two months later in August.

Meanwhile, Barry has since been linked with singer Sabrina Carpenter following his split from Alyson.

Barry and US singer Sabrina were first linked last month when they were seen going out for dinner in Los Angeles.

A source told The Sun: ‘Barry thought it was best that Alyson was the first to know about him and Sabrina so she wouldn’t be hurt if she found out on social media.

‘He is spending a lot of time in the States and has invited Sabrina to be his ‘plus one’ at the Golden Globes.

‘Alyson and Barry still communicate for the sake of Brando and he has been open about his new relationship.’

Sabrina was most recently connected to singer Shawn Mendes, 25, however he denied that there was anything romantic between them before she was pictured out for dinner with Barry in Brentwood, Los Angeles, before Christmas.
