Nobody does a modern millennial breakup like Lena Dunham and her ex-boyfriend Jack Antoff. After five years of dating, the 'Girls' star and the prominent music producer announced the end of their relationship, but appear to be close friends—and potential co-parents?
Dunham took to Twitter to share a list of baby names that she and Antoff had made together. While for some this would be unimaginably awkward, Dunham has made an entire career out of turning cringe-worthy moments into modern entertainment charm.
She wrote, "Hey @jackantonoff I just found a potential baby name list we made in 2015. I could definitely keep this private, but then the world wouldn’t know that you suggested “Carrot” over and over... Love u!!!"

The celebrity couple called things off in January of this year. In May, Dunham wrote a tell-all editorial for Vogue Magazine about the split. “We sat in our shared kitchen of nearly four years and quietly faced each other, acknowledging what nobody wanted to say," Dunham wrote. "That obsessive connection had turned to blind devotion, and the blinders were coming off to reveal that we had evolved separately (the least shocking reason of all and perhaps the most common).”
Many couples could take a page from Dunham and Antoff on how to successfully breakup. On the other hand, maybe everyone should look elsewhere for baby name inspiration.
