Remember when Michael B. Jordan and Catherine Paiz dated? Or how about when he stepped out with Victoria's Secret supermodel Cindy Bruna? Don't worry, neither did we. And there's good reason for that. The Hollywood hunk is notoriously private when it comes to his love life. Well, that was until his latest relationship with model Lori Harvey.

From PDA-filled getaways to romantic photo-shoots, it appears Jordan and his new beau are happier than ever. And they haven't been shy sharing their love with the rest of us. As for what prompted the typically private actor to open the lid on his latest romance?

For starters, don't get it twisted: "I’m still private, and I want to protect that," Jordan assured to People. "It just felt like it was a moment of just wanting to put it out there and move on," he explained. In case it wasn't already obvious: "I am extremely happy," he gushed of his latest chapter.

As the actor confessed, growing up in the public eye hasn't been easy. But now that he's finally older, Jordan's ready to do things differently. "I think when you get older, you feel more comfortable about the [public nature of the business that we’re in," he explained as he continues sharing more of his life with the rest of us.

In case you forgot, he and Lori Harvey first stepped out together back in November of 2020. And while they may have initially tried to keep things relatively under wraps, by January, all of that had officially changed: The two began taking their love to the online world. And they've been blessing our Instagram feeds ever since.

Jordan and Lori Harvey are officially relationship goals. And we can't wait to see where their latest chapter together takes them.
