The pair were first linked shortly before 2020 and confirmed their romance in a sweet post a couple of months later.

The pair have been described as as far back as 2021 and ‘completely smitten with one another’.

Although there were reports that they took a break in early 2023, any bumps have been smoothed over and they seem stronger than ever.
