Huddle up for one of the most adorable celebrity romances of this generation. Yes you guessed it right, we’re talking about heartthrob Shawn Mendes and his lady love Camila Cabello. Everyone knows that the two have been dating since the release of their hit single ‘Senorita’. However, their love story dates back to the year 2014.
Before Cabello’s solo career started off, she met Mendes in 2014, when they both opened for Austin Mahone. She came to the tour with the rest of Fifth Harmony, but it was Cabello out of all of her group, who really wanted to get to know Mendes. The two revealed their first impressions of each other. ” I remember I wanted to hang out with you, but you were always on the tour bus, just learning guitar,” Cabello told Mendes, to which he replied that that’s just who he was and that he didn’t want to talk to anybody. He also added that Camilla was the only person that talked to him.
By the time the tour ended, a friendship between the two had been formed. Six months after the tour ended, the duo released their duet “I Know What You Did Last Summer.”
After the two released their song, many dating rumors started doing the rounds. Mendes tried his best to lay rumours to rest in October 2015 by telling that they were “just really close friends” and that they never dated.
In May 2017, Cabello released “Crying in the Club” and Mendes tweeted “You’re incredible” in response to the music video. In December, Mendes also referred to Cabello as “girlfriend material” in an interview with The New Paper.
Both of them were captured braiding each other’s hair backstage and also publicly saying that they value each other as friends. Mendes said in an interview that Camilla is his favourite person in the world, in April 2018. However, during this period, Camilla was dating, relationship coach Matthew Hussey, and Mendes was spotted with model Hailey Baldwin.
In February, 2019 Camilla and Shawn gave separate performances at the Grammy Awards. However the two did manage to find some time for hugs backstage.
Some months after the Grammys, they released their second duet, “Señorita,” with a rather steamy music video. After the release of the song, rumours regarding the two of them peaked. And to add to that, Camilla broke up with her boyfriend just after the release of the song.
The two singers gave an intense and steamy performance of ‘Señorita’ at the 2019 VMAs.
Cabello spoke about the awkward beginning to their relationship in an interview with Rolling Stone. She said that they both knew they liked each other, however they were too young to admit their real feelings.
Since then, they have been having a smooth sailing relationship. Fans are treated to their adorable and romantic pictures from time to time. Just last month, they were spotted walking hand in hand on multiple occasions.
Currently, the couple is spending their quarantine together in Miami, Florida with Cabello’s family.
