Camila Cabello’s Romance With Austin Mahone: How She Landed New Boyfriend
Who says you have to wait around for a guy you like to ask you out? Camila knew exactly what she wanted (Austin), and she went for it!
“She pursued him with the help of her girls in the group,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “The next thing that happened was the start of their relationship. It didn’t take long for him to start liking her back. She wanted him and got him!”
Well it’s obvious why! Camila is gorgeous, smart and talented — the total package! We couldn’t be happier for this adorable new couple!
Despite their busy schedules, Austin and Camila are great at staying close and in touch, our source reveals.
“They toured with each other most of the year and when they were apart for their own things, they weren’t that far away from each other for that long, so this wasn’t and isn’t ever a problem.”
That’s a relief! Camila seemed positively smitten with Austin when she confirmed that they were dating on Watch What Happens Live on Nov. 3. When host Andy Cohen asked which one of the lovely ladies was dating Austin, Camila’s hand shot up and she said, “That would be me!”
She also added that “he’s a really good guy” but played coy when Andy asked how long the couple had been together.
“Um, um, I dunno, I mean, I think we’ve known each other for a really long time, we’ve known each other for like, a year and a half now, like since we were, like on X Factor,” Camila said before joking, “That was my way of dodging the question.”
So HollywoodLifers, do YOU think Camila and Austin make a cute couple? Do you think it’s great that Camila made the first move? Let us know!
