New celeb couple alert: Maya Jama and NBA player Ben Simmons have pretty much made their relationship official, after being spotted kissing at Wimbledon.
Following recent romance rumours, the pair appear to have made things public, attending a pre-tennis lunch together before being pictured kissing in the stands as they watched the match.
While Maya hasn't publicly posted any pictures with Ben, she did post a selfie video with the back of Ben's head on her Instagram Story, so that's something.
The TV presenter and basketball player, who previously dated Kendall Jenner, were first linked in 2019, with a source telling The Sun at the time, "Maya has not long been single, so she and Ben are taking time to get to know each other and see if there’s a real spark." Relationship rumours resurfaced last month after the pair were spotted leaving a London restaurant minutes apart, and now it looks like things are *officially* official.
And, unsurprisingly, these two look pretty cute together:
Plus, take a look at Maya's not-so-subtle posting of Ben on Instagram:
Basketball player Ben previously dated Kendall Jenner, before the pair split back in May 2019, with a source saying at the time the relationship had "ran its course". Ben and Maya were linked later that year, with the NBA player commenting fire emojis under one of her posts.
It's thought that Maya flew out to Philadelphia to visit Ben in May of this year, with a source telling The Mirror at the time, "Things are hotting up for Maya and Ben. They are really into each other and the fact she flew to Philadelphia to be with him says a lot. They had a fun two weeks together. It’s nice to see her so happy."
Maya has previously opened up about being a "relationship girl", as well as her experience of being single during the pandemic. When asked whether she prefers being single or in a relationship, she told Cosmopolitan UK, "It depends on the seasons in life. I’m a proper relationship girl, like I’ve been in long relationships but now I’m single, so they’re both alright. I think single in a pandemic is a bit of a different experience because you are single, single but I’m alright with either."
We're so happy for these two!
