It was the first time the two were seen publicly together since they began dating in late 2017. "We met on Tinder while I was in Finland late last year and we kept in touch since then,” he told Entertainment Tonight. "We had been talking all through the holidays and the Olympics. We kept it pretty private but recently we decided to make it official."
