The model revealed it took over a year for her to see her boyfriend Kyle Kuzma’s direct messages on Instagram but once they did finally start speaking, they ended up Facetiming “24 hours every single day” and couldn’t get enough of one another.

 “So I got a DM a year prior from my boyfriend, and I had never seen it. I don’t know what the glitch in the system with Instagram is but that never came up for me. A year later, at the top of quarantine, he DM’d me again; posted a picture of me in an outfit and I was like, ‘Oh, hi.’ He shot his shot and slid in the DM," she said speaking about her romance with the basketball player.

"So that was cute and I was like, ‘Oh hey, how’s quarantine been?’ And yeah, we just started talking from there. And then, after about a month on Facetime for 24 hours every single day, he was like, ‘You got to come to LA,’ and I’ve been in LA ever since. That was a year ago, exactly.”  

And the 26-year-old model loves the height difference between the pair.

“He’s really tall. Every time I post a picture or a video of us everyone’s like, ‘Oh my god, I stan the height difference, oh my god, I ship that.' It’s cute, I love it,'” she told The Ellen DeGeneres Show recently.
