In case there was still any confusion about Jordin Sparks‘ relationship status, the singer confirms she is officially off the market.

The American Idol alum, 25, has been sharing cute snaps of herself and rapper Sage the Gemini, 22, since early April, but she finally opened up exclusively to PEOPLE on Thursday about her new boyfriend.

“I think they’re pretty obvious,” said a giggling Sparks about her Instagram photos. “We’re having fun. He’s a really good guy, and the pictures speak for themselves I don’t just kiss people!”

Earlier this week, the singer – who split from Jason Derulo in September after three years together – called the rapper “my #baemaxx” in one of her captions. (Bae is a term of endearment meaning “before anyone else.”)

So what’s the story behind the nickname?

“Well, you know, Big Hero 6, the big guy was [named] Baymax. We watched that two weeks ago and I was like, ‘I love the name Baymax,’ ” she said. “[Sage] was like, ‘I’m your bae to the max,’ and I was like, ‘That’s your nickname!’ “
