Fran Drescher is dating Shiva Ayyadurai, the first person to hold a copyright for ‘EMAIL’ back in 1982.
The Huffington Post reports that the 56-year-old actress was seen together with the 49-year-old tech wiz on Tuesday for the premiere of Bridegroom at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences Samuel Goldwyn Theater. The two were seen being very affectionate with each other and Drescher tweeted a picture of the couple the next day.
Drescher is perhaps best-known for her role as Fran Fine in The Nanny which ran from 1993-99. Ayyadurai is credited as having the first copyright for the word ‘EMAIL’ after he began developing an electronic mail system while in high school in 1978. However, some question whether or not his system helped create the e-mail as we know it today.
