It’s always a bold new experience meeting your boyfriend or girlfriend’s parents for the first time. But for Disney star Bella Thorne it was literally an alarming one. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE on how it went down!
Bella Thorne, 17, had a startling first encounter with the parents of new boyfriend Gregg Sulkin, 23. A simple trip to the movies nearly turned in to a five alarm experience. The Disney darling and her new man went on a double date to see Jurassic World with his folks. But they didn’t make it through the film.
“Awesome! Very cool. His mom and dad are lovely” she gushed about meeting Gregg’s parents for the first time with Hollywoodlife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “We went and saw Jurassic World and the fire alarm went off at the Galleria. How does that happen to us? It was in the middle of the movie. Almost at the end. I heard it and me and Greg thought that it was like a stunt for the movie. We were like ‘oh this is a very good stunt.”
But the drama didn’t end there. Her British beau and his dad ended up playing the heroes to a disabled woman. “Then everybody started rushing down and Gregg and his dad they saw this woman in a wheelchair who couldn’t get down and they sent me and his mom downstairs and they went out and they helped her get down somehow and we were waiting outside.” Aww, he’s handsome and considerate! “It was actually so sweet. They ran back upstairs. I was like ‘oh my God! Ok, goodbye!’ We were just walking down the stairs and I almost died. The one time I wore heels. I never wear heels except for right now of course” she told us.
It must be a comfort for the Shake It Up star to get along so well with her boyfriend’s folks. The longtime friends took their relationship public in June when Bella brought the Pretty Little Liars hunk as her date to MTV’s Scream premiere. The couple hasn’t been shy in sharing their affections on social media, with Gregg posting a photo of bikini-clad Bella to his Instagtram August 12 as his #WomanCrushWednesday.
Bella has been equally complimentary, sharing photos of the couple playing paintball as well as cuddling over lunch. We can’t help but notice, Gregg has a lot of pictures of a bikini clad Bella, while she posts more wholesome shots of the pair bonding over painting plates at an arts and crafts store.
Hollywoodlifers, what do you think of Bella and Gregg as a couple? Are they the cutest ever or what?
