Simpson shared with Us Weekly among other outlets, how him and the “Mother’s Daughter” singer got together saying, “We’ve been friends for so long that when we sort of found each other again in a space where … We both met back in the day when we were partying a lot. We had a lot of fun then … but now we’ve found each other in a space where we’re not partying, working real hard and just like [to] keep things healthy.”

The 22-year-old added that a foundation of friendship makes their relationship easy. “Any girlfriend that I’ve had in the past has always been immediate romance, and so it’s kind of like a different experience having been friends with somebody before and developing that into something more,” he said. “It’s just like a very natural, healthy feeling.”
