With 63 million households projected to reach in the first four weeks of its release, Bridgerton is one of the most successful freshman shows on Netflix. People gobbled up the romance from Regency-era so much so that Rege-Jean Page's girlfriend rumor flew all the way to his co-star Phoebe Dynevor's lap as both well linked romantically in real life.
All of this rumor is due to the steamy relationship the couple share on Netflix's show from Shonda Rhimes. Bridgerton follows Daphne Bridgerton and Duke Simon Basset as they form a secret pact to find a better match for the former, and escape marriage altogether for the latter. But things take a turn when acting turns into reality and both start to fall for one another.
The show was Netflix's first collaboration with TV's queen Shonda Rhimes and it did not disappoint one bit. Whether it is the mixes of race in Regency-era Queen's court or the romance at the core of the show. The romance was so believable that fans were ready to ship the lead characters, make Phoebe Dynevor into Rege-Jean Page's girlfriend.

We understand why there is so much talk about Rege-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor dating in real life. There is no way of talking about Bridgerton and no speak about the episode dedicated completely to Simon and Daphne's honeymoon.
The romantic scenes in that movie have been talked about ad nauseam by multiple outlets. We will just say that the whole episode is a steaming treat of hotness. Seeing something like that would definitely make people talk about the chemistry the couple shared on screen and speculate if it spilled off-screen as well.
Rege-Jean Page has had a girlfriend in the past and we have written about Phoebe Dynevor's past two boyfriends. We know that the duo is currently single and it was probably the case why most fans were happy to ship the couple. But Rege clarified the air and set the record straight when it comes to him dating Phoebe.
Phoebe and Rege were calling into Access where they were asked the question of dating in real life. Rege was quick to make it clear that he has admiration for Phoebe but they are just good friends. He pointed out that the relationship started out and ended on camera, he did not use the exact word but it is safe to say Phoebe Dynevor is not Rege-Jean Page's girlfriend.
During the interview, the Simon Basset actor said, "I think everything you need to know is on camera. That's why we presented it so beautifully for you. All the sparks that flew off of the beautiful scripts that we were handed, and so I think that the sparky scripted material are more than enough."
Phoebe and Rege make a great couple on screen. They were fantastic in Bridgerton, and will possibly return it there is Bridgerton season 2 but at the moment it is pretty clear they are not dating. Rege neither has a girlfriend or a wife at the moment but considering everything, he probably won't stay that way for long.
Fans are Enamored by Rege-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor Romance
The Netflix and Bridgerton effect has struck Rege-Jean Page's Instagram page. From a relatively low count to over 2.5 million followers, the actor's social media has seen a massive surge and so has the comment section of almost all of his photos, especially those ones with Phoebe.
One fan simply wrote, "I’ve decided that you guys need to play every romantic couple in every movie, from this day forward!" That comment has more than 1,000 likes, tells you everything you need to know about the fans' feelings.
Also, the comment sections are filled with expressions of love and affection from Brazilians. There are probably more comments in Portuguese than in English in this one photo. But no matter the language, the sentiment from the fans is the same, they want Rege-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor to be in a relationship.
