They only went Instagram-official in January.

But judging by Lori Harvey’s recent birthday tributes to her actor bae, Michael B Jordan, things are clearly getting serious fast. 

“It's my baby's birthday,” the 24-year-old gushed as she posted a bunch of photos and video clips of them for Michael’s 34th birthday on 9 February.  

The photos included one of the pair all bundled up for the cold, one of him kissing her on her neck and a snap of them smoking cigars while sitting aboard a yacht.

She used the montage to wax lyrical, saying that the Creed star is “My favourite headache”, “My big baby”, “my best friend”, “my sweet, stubborn crazy a** aquarius” and “the sexiest man alive”.

Later in the day, Lori took to Instagram again to share three photos from the birthday date night and even dropped the L-word.

“Happyyy Birthdayyy Nugget,” she captioned the post. “I love you baby . . . hope today has been at least half as special as you are.”

An insider recently let slip that the couple's family and friends all approve of their relationship, which has indeed moved fast.

“Michael B Jordan's family likes Lori, and vice versa,” the source said. “Lori is everything Michael's family could have hoped for him to find. She's lovely, respectful and fits in perfectly.”

"Her friends also think he's great for her," the source continued. "Things have gotten serious fast, but there have been no red flags. They're both totally invested, committed and very happy." 

Lori has previously been linked romantically with rapper Future and hip-hop mogul Diddy. In 2017, she announced her engagement to Dutch professional soccer player Memphis Depay but the couple are thought to have separated later that year, with Lori being spotted without her engagement ring in 2018.

The model’s adoptive father, Steve Harvey (64), recently shared his thoughts on his daughter's relationship with Michael. She was adopted by the Family Feud host following his 2007 marriage to her mom, Marjorie (56).

"I like this one," Steve said on his iHeartRadio The Steve Harvey Morning Show before jokingly adding, "I still got my eye on him.""I mean, I like him but like I say to all of 'em, ‘I might like you, I might approve of you, but I got a thumb-size section of my heart filled with nothing but pure hatred for your ass. Just in case I need it'," he continued. "Like right now? Nice guy . . . But I got this little section, partner, where all I gotta do is click a switch and I can hate your ass. 'Cause, you ain't the sexiest man in the world to me! Let's be clear about that.”
