On Monday the pair had a special date night at the TrevorLIVE Gala where Cara received the Hero Award.

The 26-year-old model shared with E News on Monday why she decided to go public with their relationship.

"I don't know because it is Pride, it's been 50 years since Stonewall happened and I don't know. It's been just about our one year anniversary so, why not?" she said during an interview at the TrevorLIVE Gala.

During her acceptance speech, Cara thanked a "very special woman" in the room.

"You know who you are. She is one of the people that helped me love myself when I needed it most, and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and showed me how to accept it, which was a lot harder than I thought. I love you, Sprinkles," reports US Weekly.
