Cody Simpson has been dating GiGi Hadid for nearly a year now, and while things between them were secret at first, the pair recently went public, and Cody couldn’t be happier to share the relationship with his fans.
“I recently got involved in my first serious relationship. It was something that seriously meant a lot to me. Almost too much to keep it a secret,” Cody explained in a Feb. 27 interview. “My girlfriend is the sweetest girl.”
Despite his confidence in his lady, Cody was a bit hesitant to share his new relationship with fans, at first. After all, Selena Gomez received death threats and hate mail after she went public with Justin Bieber, so unruly fans were a definite concern.
“I was kind of nervous at first to see how people would react to the fact that we were together,” Cody admitted. Luckily, the relationship has been well-received.
"From what I’ve seen, the majority of fans are very supportive of me. If she makes me happy, then my fans are happy, so it’s a good thing,” he said.
And now that everything is out in the open, Cody is excited about debuting his new music, which includes a lot of inspiration from GiGi.
“With how important the relationship is in my life, I wrote a lot about experiences that I have had with her.”
Although this couple is quite new, according to most standards, they seem to have a very real, very mature relationship — and that’s a rarity in Hollywood. Hopefully, they can continue on with the love they have found, with Cody’s fans supporting them all the way.
