Los Angeles - Lena Dunham and her boyfriend are old souls.

Guitarist Jack Antonoff - who is one-third of We Are Young hitmakers Fun. - has revealed the pair quickly hit it off when they began dating in 2012 because they both prefer dinner parties and relaxing spa days to partying.

Jack - who lives with the Girls star in New York - said: "Here's a perfect story for what we're like (...) one time we were at a dinner party where everyone was over 60 and, before we knew it, we realised that everyone at the table had gone outside to smoke pot and they didn't invite us. That basically says it all."

The 30-year-old musician can vividly recall meeting Lena, 28, on a blind date after being set up by his pal, comedian Mike Birbiglia, and he felt compelled to share details of his "whole life", including his high school romance with A-list star Scarlett Johansson, with the writer-and-actress on their first date.

He explained: "It was a blind date by modern standards. I mean, I used the internet.

"I told Lena everything about my whole life, because when you really like someone, you want them to know everything about you."

Meanwhile, Jack admits he is "desperate" to become a father now he's settled down.

He told New York Magazine: "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.'

"I think it's biological," said Dunham. "I'm 30. I'm not that young, right? 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."
