Who Is Chrissy Metz Dating?
Metz has been in a relationship with Bradley Collins for over a year now. The couple met through a dating site Bumble around the beginning of the Covid-19 lockdown while in Nashville. They went for their first date in May 2020.
Three months later, they made their relationship Instagram official.
"Bradley, from the first moment I laid eyes on you I wanted and needed to know you," Metz captioned the post dedicated to her partner on National Boyfriend's Day. She stated she was lucky to love him and expressed her gratitude for being a wonderful person. "I love you," she wrote, ending her sweet caption.
Following the announcement, Collins also posted a celebratory post for Metz on her 40th birthday, on September 29, 2020.
"Happy Birthday to my love, Chrissy," he began his heartwarming message that accompanied a selfie featuring the duo. He then remarked she was the best thing that happened to him. He added, "From our first date in May, you've had me #Metzmerized with love, laughter and kindness."
Metz gushed about their budding chemistry during an appearance on TODAY with Hoda & Jenna in January 2021. She stated their relationship was very unexpected and funny that they knew the same people, had the same friends and were even in the same rooms before. However, they never got to know one other.
The 41-year-old then mentioned that the pandemic helped their bond to grow stronger. "We really got a chance to know each other because you can't get to smooching too soon when you're social-distance dating," she elaborated.
Moving on, she talked about her partner and shared it was refreshing to date someone at a slower pace than normal. In her own words, "I was like, 'Oh, wow! I really like this person as a human. This is gonna be good.'"
Without a doubt, the couple has been living their best life dating one another. There were even rumors that they had gotten engaged in early 2021. The speculations spurred after the Breakthrough actress was spotted wearing a honeycomb ring.
However, the Florida native dispelled the rumors during a virtual interview for The Covino & Rich Show, stating that the gold piece of jewelry was just a gift from her boyfriend, not an engagement ring.
