Dating rumors have been swirling around Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello for years now, and we are finally here to break down their entire relationship once and for all. The singers, who got close after they released a song together back in 2015, are constantly hanging out, supporting each other’s work, gushing over each other in interviews and having the cutest little moments — so it’s only natural that fans have been shipping them.

And although they insisted for years that they were nothing more than friends, their recent interactions have a ton of fans convinced that they’ve finally become boyfriend and girlfriend. Get this, you guys — the “Havana” songstress and the “In My Blood” crooner have been spotted kissing, holding hands and going on a bunch of steamy dates recently — from late-night dinners to beach getaways to romantic strolls. Oh, and did we mention that Camila has attended a bunch of Shawn’s recent concerts? Yeah, they’ve definitely been spending a lot of time together, and it seems like they cannot keep their hands (or their lips!) off each other. On July 29, the two were even photographed smooching in Miami Beach. See?
