Maura Higgins has finally confirmed that she is dating Giovanni Pernice, sharing a loved-up snap with her new beau.
Clearing up the speculation once and for all, the 30-year-old blessed us with yet another dreamy couple picture as she cosied up to the dancer.
Alongside the post, she simply penned: ‘I’m yours,’ with a red love heart emoji.
Giovanni, also 30, followed suit sharing a different, but equally adorable, photo of the pair on his own page, with the caption: ‘I’m yours.’
Wow, couple photos and matching captions all in one day? Welcome to the summer of 2021.
Right on cue, fans and famous pals went into overload over the announcement, with Love Island co-star Lucie Donlan penning: ‘Finally love you guys.’
‘Yes HERE FOR THIS,’ a follower yelled, as one replied: ‘What WOW!! Couple goals.’
‘So happy for you both Maura and Gio,’ another praised.
Maura was first linked to Giovanni earlier this year, following her split from Chris Taylor, with the pair sharing very similar snaps from Italy’s Euro 2020 game against Austria.
The rumours amped up when she was spotted at the opening night of his dance tour, with an insider revealing how ‘smitten’ they seemed at an after-party.
‘They looked totally smitten with each other,’ they told the Sun.
‘They were being very touchy-feely and had a smooch on the dancefloor.’
Maura previously dated Chris Taylor before revealing their split in May, after six months together.
Prior to this, she had a public romance with Curtis Pritchard, with the pair leaving the Love Island villa together.
Meanwhile, Giovanni was in relationships with two of his Strictly Come Dancing co-stars, Georgia May Foote and Ashley Roberts.
