Once upon a time, Becky G and Austin Mahone took their longtime friendship and let it blossom into an adorable love story. In August of 2015 though – after only officially dating for a few months – the couple had called it quits, leaving fans heartbroken that their fave ship didn’t last. But we have proof that the former lovebirds are still friends to this day, all these years later, and it’s actually the cutest.
The 21-year-old starlet took to Instagram to share a truly star-studded pic. Becky went to the legend that is Jennifer Lopez’s concert in Las Vegas and hung out backstage with J.Lo, Alex Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Dua Lipa, and Sofia Vergara. Total A-list celebs out here! And Austin was happy to see his ex living her best life, as he commented on the pic writing, “6 icons in 1 pic.”
OK, now how sweet is that? The 22-year-old singer is nothing but proud of Becky’s success, and he’s clearly happy for her. For Becstin shippers, this is everything – and it’s not the first time they’ve proved to everyone that the famous exes are still close. Back in June of 2017, Becky hopped up on stage during one of Austin’s shows, surprising the crowd to perform “Rollin'” with him. She even shared a snippet of the moment on her Instagram. “SURPRISE LA! Got to perform “Rollin” with my friend @AustinMahone ? congrats on the end of the tour & shout out to the whole team & fans for welcoming with open arms,” she wrote in the caption.
The praise for each other, that hug, it was all too much cuteness. Let us never forget that during the peak time in their relationhip, they even starred in the oh so romantic music video for B’s song “Lovin So Hard” together. Frolicking on the beach, eating tacos, getting froyo, taking selfies, working on some music – the video gave fans a look into what their romance was like. Tbh, these two were legit goals for a minute.
But before you start bringing back the whole #BecstinForever vibes, it’s important to know that these exes will remain just that – exes. Since their breakup, they have each moved on. Austin dated fitness model Katya Elise Henry, before admitting he was single again in early 2017. As for Becky, she has been happily dating her bae, 26-year-old soccer player Sebastian Lletget, for more than two years now. These two met all thanks to Becky’s Power Rangers co-star Naomi Scott playing matchmaker too, which is just all types of adorable.
So Becky and Austin are just friends now, but it is really cool to see that they are still close enough that they can leave each other encouraging words and sing together without any awkwardness. Maturity at it’s finest. The fandom appreciates it.
