The Songbird actor was first linked to Berry in February 2020 when he posted a photo via Instagram kissing her. The duo were caught flirting back and forth on social media beginning in December 2019.

“Coup de foudre,” the New Zealand native captioned their first Instagram pic alongside a smiley face. The French phrase is used to describe “a sudden unforeseen event, in particular an instance of love at first sight.”

Six months later, Berry declared her love for Apa via social media after he posted nude photos that he took of her on vacation on Instagram.

“There’s nowhere else,” the actor captioned the series of travel snaps in August 2020.

The French native gushed about her man on her own Instagram account, writing, “He is the only one in the world in my eyes,” in French in reply to a fans’ comment.
