Looks like Gus has been keeping a special little secret for the past two years!

Sorry folks. There's one more out Olympian off the dating market, and we have the kiss with his new mystery man to prove it!

Earlier this week, an insider source exclusively revealed to E! News that champion freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy has been in a committed relationship with CAA executive Adam Umhoefer for over two years. And then the pair were caught locking lips in public over the weekend at the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado by friend and photographer Douglas Friedman, who shared the picture to Instagram earlier this week.

"Thank you @guskenworthy for a truly inspiring and [awesome] night at The X Games," Friedman captioned his Instagram post.

"Posted to page! This is SERIOUS!!!" Kenworthy responded, obviously not displeased that both the picture and his relationship were out in the open now.

The 30-year-old silver medalist at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi clearly appreciated the warm support he received from his friends and boyfriend at this, his final X Games.

"Thank you so much for coming out and cheering me on -- meant the world to me to have y'all there!" he added, adding a heart emoji in case there were any questions.

E! News revealed the pair "have been in a committed relationship for over two years," and their insider source said the pair are also living together quite happily. And while the couple likes to "keep as much about their relationship as private as they can," the source revealed the pair "love and support one another endlessly."

The two had been spotted getting up close and very personal in public while vacationing in Greece last year.

"Alexa, play 'Summer Lovin' from the musical Greece!" Kenworthy captioned a mysterious Insta post at the time, which featured a bunch of pics of Umhoefer.

Kenworthy recently qualified for his third and final Olympics. Great Britain announced Kenworthy made the team and will compete in the Freeski halfpipe discipline event in the upcoming 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, China. He previously won the silver medal in the slopestyle competition at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi when he was competing for Team USA. In 2019 he announced he would compete for his native Great Britain in the future. He was born in Essex, England, to an American father and an English mother.

There was concern late last year that Kenworthy would not be able to make the team at all because of serious health concerns.

"Six weeks ago I got a pretty bad concussion while at a training camp in Switzerland," Kenworthy posted to Instagram last year, noting his added concern about the injury because he has suffered from "a few serious TBI's (traumatic brain injuries) in recent years."

Luckily for Kenworthy (who is one of several out, LGBTQ+ athletes to qualify for this year's Winter Olympics so far) and Team Great Britain, his symptoms relented and he was able to secure a spot on the team to compete in his final Olympics.

Kenworthy appeared in great spirits at the X Games and apparently didn't shy away from PDAs during the experience.
