“He slid into my DMs,” she gushed while talking with W Magazine in February 2019. Dylan added, “She followed me, so I was like, I guess I’ll give her something. And I slid into her DMs. I was like, ‘Hey, I don’t know if you’re in New York for very long, but we should hang out if you want to. Here’s my number.’ And she didn’t message me for six months.”
Throughout their relationship, the former Suite Life of Zack and Cody star and model have constantly shared the most adorable PDA-filled pictures, showed off their love, gushed over each other in interviews, jetted off on romantic getaways and the actor even publicly spoke about meeting his girlfriend’s parents in her home country of Hungary for the first time.
“I wasn’t nervous to meet her parents, but the truth is that there is a language barrier, obviously,” Dylan told the magazine at the time. “Her mother speaks a very tiny bit [of English], and I am not proficient in Hungarian. I’m trying, but learning is definitely an overstatement.”
During the same W Magazine the duo revealed that they were officially moving into a New York City apartment together. They also reflected on Barbara’s iconic moment at the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Show.
“It was obviously incredible,” Dylan gushed. “I saw all of the training leading up to it, which was very difficult, as you can imagine. Seeing her actually do it was a weight off of my chest as well.”
Of, course the couple has even shared tons of adorable birthday tributes to each other via social media.
“Happy birthday to the Princess of Hungary. Thinking about making you a Queen, hmu. To many more penne a la vodka’s and many more memories. I believe in you, and thank you for believing in me,” Dylan shared in October 2020 on Instagram. Barbara, for her part, returned the favor in August 2021, writing, “Happy birthday to the one and only, the funniest, the handsomests, the bestest guy who ever walked the Earth, my partner in all board and video games, the Naruto to my Sasuke. I love you.”
