Actress Lena Dunham and boyfriend Jack Antonoff met on a blind date, the musician has revealed.

Antonoff, guitarist with the American indie band Fun, explained that they were set up by their mutual friend, comedian Mike Birbiglia.

The 30-year-old also admitted that he turned to the internet to find out more about Girls creator and star Dunham before their first date in 2012.

He told New York Magazine: "It was a blind date by modern standards. I mean, I used the internet (to find out more about her)."

Antonoff revealed that they hit it off straight away, saying: "I told Lena everything about my whole life, because when you really like someone, you want them to know everything about you."

He said that he is eager to settle down and start a family: "It just seems like the most fun thing in the world. I've never met people who have kids who haven't looked me in the eye and been like, 'It's the greatest thing that's ever happened'."

Antonoff added: "I'm not, like, 24 or 22. I'm no longer in the phase of my life where I talk about everything as in the future. Like, I'm in the future."
