The model opened up about their relationship during a May 2021 interview with Vogue. “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,” Kaia shared, giving a rare insight into their relationship. “Lust is touching other people or wanting them, but love is really seeing someone.”
In October 2020, the duo made their relationship Instagram official. The couple celebrated Halloween together with matching costumes, appearing to bring their fling to the next level. The actor dressed up as the late Elvis Presley, while his other half was the singer’s ex Priscilla Presley.
Their Instagram pic came days after the couple was spotted packing on the PDA while out in Los Angeles on October 20, 2020. Jacob and Kaia shared a sweet smooch in the photos obtained by Just Jared as they ran errands around the city. The Kissing Booth alum sported a white tee with black running shorts and a blue hat while his other half opted for jeans and a tank top. They both wore face masks during their L.A. outing. The snaps show Jacob leaning in for a kiss, then adjusting the mask on his face as they continued to take the model’s dog for a walk.
Days later, on October 29, they were spotted chilling in the L.A. grass while Jacob showed off his toned torso, according to photos obtained by Just Jared. The couple’s apparent confirmation comes weeks after they first sparked romance rumors while spotted out in September 2020. Since then, they’ve been seen out multiple times and Jacob even went on a vacation with Kaia and her family. Although neither of them have commented on the nature of their relationship, things seem to be seriously heating up between these two!
When it comes to his perfect date, Jacob described an ideal romantic evening as — “a night in Paris with wine, and you’re dressed to the nines” — while chatting with Vanity Fair in November 2020. “You want it to be genuine and real and have all the feelings of what you read in 1920s literature, but when people are watching and talking about it, it makes it a little bit difficult,” the actor explained to the magazine.
