This is JoJo Siwa's world and we are just living in it.
In late January, the Dance Moms star and TikTok creator sent shock waves through the internet. The coming out was a multi step process with the 17-year-old, who is the face of her namesake billion-dollar brand, slowly confirming her sexuality over the span of a week. At the end of the week, after doing a video where she said she was the happiest she's ever been personally, Siwa was "swatted," with police converging on her home.
In recounting that ordeal on her friend's Instagram account, Siwa gave fans a look at her girlfriend. While Siwa didn't speak on the relationship, or refer to her as her girlfriend at the time, the two exchanged smiles and laughs on the Instagram while chatting with Javier, the photographer friend who was hosting the livestream. Now, in a new post, Siwa has named the teen as her girlfriend.
"After being my best friend for over a year, January 8th 2021 I got to start calling this exceptional human my Girlfriend... and Since then I’ve been the happiest I have ever been!" Siwa wrote in an Instagram post. "She seriously is the most loving, supportive, happiest, protective, and just the most beautiful perfect person in the world. And I get to call her mine! Happy one month to my girl! I love you more and more every day!"
Last week, Siwa told Jimmy Fallon that she had a girlfriend, who had encouraged her to come out. At the time she didn't say a name but said the relationship was long distance and that they FaceTime a lot. Now, we all get to know Kylie.
"Fall in love with your best friend, guys," Kylie wrote on her own Instagram. "It’s THE BEST feeling in the entire world. here’s to one month with my favorite human. I love you Sharky."
