Olivia Munn and John Mulaney are "still together," a source tells E! News (opens in new tab), although their future together is apparently uncertain (opens in new tab).

The two are expecting a child together, which is something Munn had wanted for a while, but a source says she doesn't mind too much whether or not she ends up coparenting with Mulaney as a couple or not.

"Becoming a mom was always more important to her than settling down in a conventional way," the insider tells Us Weekly (opens in new tab). "She’s a real feminist and doesn’t need a man by her side 24/7. She never has."

The source adds, "She’s incredibly picky and John was somebody she definitely wanted to get to know if there was ever a point where they were both single. John is much more of a work in progress than Olivia, but Olivia needed this change to her life. It’s been a rough last several years for her where she was stuck in a rut. This changes things up and gives her something to focus on beyond her career and social life."

Mulaney announced his divorce from Anna Marie Tendler last spring and began dating Munn shortly after. He announced (opens in new tab) that they were expecting a baby together in September during an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers.

Munn stars in upcoming movie Violet (opens in new tab), which hits theaters on Oct. 29 and will be available on demand from Nov. 9, while Mulaney is preparing to perform his stand-up show (opens in new tab) in Long Beach, California on Nov. 16 and 17.
