Unlike other teen heartthrobs, Cody Simpson didn't try to hide his relationship with Gigi Hadid, who is famous herself for being a model and the daughter of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Yolanda Foster, for as long as possible. In an interview with Fuse News, posted on Thursday, Feb. 27, the Aussie singer explained why he decided to go public with his relationship with Gigi.
"I recently got involved in my first serious relationship. It was something that seriously meant a lot to me. Almost too much to really keep it a secret," he said.
While he was nervous about what his fans's reactions would be, he quickly found out that they're supportive.
"From what I've seen, the majority of the fans are very supportive of me. If she makes me happy, then my fans are happy, so it's a good thing," he said.
Cody's fans should be happy about his relationship with GiGi as it has helped inspire new music. Reflective of how happy he is currently, his new single is simple titled "Love."
Cody is just as supportive of Gigi's career as she is his. He recently asked his fans to vote for Gigi as Sports Illustrated's 2014 Rookie of the Year model, calling her his "lady."
From how highly he speaks of her, perhaps one day he'll even appear on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" with her.
To see Cody speak about his relationship, new music, and more, tune in to Fuse News tonight, Thursday, Feb. 27, at 7:30/6:30c.
