On Jordan’s page, he shared two photos of himself and Harvey with no caption. 

Harvey shared a collage of two similar photos with a brown heart as her caption. 

This is the first time the couple has shared photos of each other on social media. The 33-year-old actor is notoriously private about his love life and tagged Harvey in the photos, as well as Leo Volcy, the photographer who shot them. 

Rumors that the two were dating started circulating when they were photographed arriving together at the Atlanta airport days before Thanksgiving. They were photographed again in late December touching down together in Salt Lake City. 

Once they made their romance official, Jordan and Harvey were congratulated by a number of celebrities, including City Girls rapper JT and actress Gabrielle Union

Black Twitter also quickly reacted to the announcement with support and shock. One user wrote, “Can you blame Michael B. Jordan though? Lori Harvey is drop (dead) gorgeous.” 

Jordan, who is People magazine’s reigning “Sexiest Man Alive,” has been romantically linked in the past to French model Cindy Bruna and actress Kiki Layne. In November, he told People he was looking for a partner with “a sense of humor, true understanding” and “somebody that’s nurturing.”

He jokingly noted that he has a list of qualities that he is looking for in a relationship.
