If your celebrity couple radar has been on mute for the past few months, you may have missed the fact that Kaia Gerber and Jacob Elordi are still very much a thing.
At the weekend Gerber posted a shirtless photo of Elordi to Instagram to celebrate his 24th birthday. She captioned the image, “Happy Birthday my love.” This is only the second time that the model has posted a photo of her boyfriend to social media after keeping their relationship mostly on the down-low
The couple were first spotted spending time together in New York in September of 2020, piquing the interest of fans and paparazzi. The celebrity couple then made it ‘Insta official’ when they attended a Halloween party as Elvis and Priscilla Presley last October.
Elordi has also earned the prized parental seal of approval. In April a source told Us Weekly , “Kaia’s parents adore Jacob and think he’s a great match for Kaia. Her friends have also taken a liking to him and think he’s such a heartthrob.”
In May 2021, Gerber revealed details of her secretive relationship with the actor to Vogue. When asked if her new relationship had encouraged her to speak publicly about her life she said, “Being able to be with someone I trust, where we don’t want anything from each other, having a safe, steady relationship like that, has really opened my eyes to the possibilities of love and what it feels like to love without conditions.”
She continued, “Lust is touching other people or wanting them, but love is really seeing someone.”
Gerber also confirmed that she was splitting half her time between her parent’s residence in Malibu, and Elordi’s house in the Hollywood Hills.
Gerber – the daughter of 90s bombshell Cindy Crawford – was previously linked to comedian Pete Davidson. The pair dated for almost three months before they split in January of 2020.
Prior to that Elordi was rumoured to be dating his Euphoria co-star, Zendaya. The pair first sparked speculation in August of 2019 and were last seen together in March 2020. But they never made it official on social media.
