Jessica Madsen, who plays Cressida Cowper in the Netflix series Bridgerton, has been open about her sexuality in the media; however, the identity of her partner remains unknown.

The actress has never tried to conceal the fact that she was queer. In Pride Month 2024, she wrote, “I am in love with a woman, loud with it, proud with the love I have!”

In the previous year, she posted some graphics about bisexuality, and her caption was, “Bisexuals are not confused.” Additionally, she added the caption, “Bi the way…Happy pride month.”

However, she still keeps her dating life private. Jessica Madsen was once linked with Benji Philipson, but there is no confirmed information about her current or past partner.

While Jessica’s real love life seems settled, her onscreen love life is quite complicated!

Jessica’s character, Cressida Cowper, has ruined all her chances at marriage since the first season. She has firmly maintained her reputation as a mean girl.

In the third season of Bridgerton, she aims to secure a proposal from Lord Debling, a naturalist and vegetarian with a vast estate. Despite the progress, her plans unravel due to her actions.

Therefore, Cressida is unable to find her match by the end of the season. Nevertheless, though no suitor paid attention to Cressida, she at least became friends with Eloise Bridgerton.

Jessica likes the fandom idea that Cressida and Eloise are queer-coded. However, the scenarios of Cressida are far from Jessica’s life as she is happy and in love.

Following the Pride month post, several of her Bridgerton costars praised the Instagram post and expressed their support in the comment section.

Jonathan Baile (Anthony Bridgerton) and Nicola Coughlan (Penelope Featherington) shared heart emojis. Similarly, Julia Quinn (the author) commented on a collection of rainbow heart emojis.

Additionally, Hannah Dodd (Francesca) commented, “Love youuuuuu” with a yellow heart. Jonna Bobin (Lady Cowper) commented, “Go baby girl! Love you“.
