One of our new favourite celeb couples is Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers. The actor and singer from Normal People were first linked in 2020, and they’ve now made their relationship official!
Despite the fact that they are both from Ireland and Los Angeles, these two have ended up being an ideal fit. We adore it when a seemingly incompatible relationship works out.
Phoebe and Paul gave us yet another glimpse into their typically secretive relationship after becoming Insta-official in December 2021. The couple, who started dating in 2020, shared a sweet photo of themselves curled up in bed together, looking as adorable as ever.
Obviously, it’s Phaul-esque, but the actual star of the show has to be the woman in the background, who is simply trying to read her book.
