Brad Simpson and Lauren Jauregui have faced rumors that they're secretly dating ever since The Vamps and Fifth Harmony went on tour together. But now, the singer has EXCLUSIVELY opened up to J-14 about their rumored relationship.
When asked about the nickname that fans have dubbed their pairing, Brad suggested an alternative ship name he likes better!
“Brauren, that’s a funny name. If you do it the other way, it’s Lad. I think I prefer Lad,” he joked to us.
It's definitely very tongue-in-cheek — and a bit more ambiguous because of the double meaning of the word. Of course, we don't think Lad will overtake Brauren as their go-to ship name any time soon, but that's a fun substitute.
Do you prefer Brauren or Lad as their ship name? Do you think Lauren and Brad are a couple? Sound off in the comments!
