Forget marriage or babies, Jade Thirlwall from Little Mix and Jordan Stephens just hit the ultimate relationship milestone: they've gone Instagram official.

The pair were first linked in June 2020, and were later photographed arm in arm during the Black Lives Matter protests. In October, Jade, 27, confirmed Jordan, 28, is indeed her boyfriend, in conversation with RuPaul for Cosmopolitan UK.

"It’s really important for me that whoever I find relationship-wise loves drag culture," Jade explained at the time.

"When I first started talking to my boyfriend, I discovered he did a movie [Tucked] where he played a drag queen and I was like, right, that’s it. He’s perfect. Sign me up! A straight man who’s willing to dress in drag and loves being queer and feminine."

Now, the pair have taken things one step further, with the Little Mix singer sharing a selfie with Jordan on her Instagram Stories.

As part of the "Post a photo of" challenge, which sees followers request to see specific pics, one of Jade's fans asked for the first photo of her with Jordan. The singer replied by sharing a mirror selfie of the pair at a supermarket checkout.


The singer has also spoken out more about how she and the Rizzle Kicks singer got together, and why she thinks they're such a "good match".

"I ended up meeting someone in lockdown which is strange… I quite enjoyed doing it that way," she told Metro. "We had real dates and really got to know each other. I wouldn’t say I was looking for anyone at the time. I was happy to be in lockdown because I am independent. I think you can still strive in your singleness in lockdown."

Speaking about how the lockdown and current situation has helped their relationship blossom, Jade continued, "Anyone who has supported you through hard times is really important. It’s quite special seeing that.

"It’s the one positive to come out of this. Me and Jordan… we are a good match. We are so chilled out, we are horizontal!"

Excited for these two.
