Find out which of your favorite stars have been taken off the market
Luann de Lesseps & Garth Wakeford
The Real Housewives of New York City star confirmed in November that while she still considers herself single, she has begun dating Hamptons trainer Garth Wakeford. The reality star discussed her relationship status, and her foray into dating apps, during an appearance on the podcast Ex Appeal on Nov. 18.
de Lesseps said she first met the 6-foot-6-inch South African athlete — a former rugby player — on a dating app. Her initial reaction to his profile, she said, was “Oh, he is too good to be true.”
The pair then met up for coffee, with masks on, and Wakeford, 49, was just what she had hoped. “I said, ‘Oh, my God! He’s exactly what he looks like on the app.’ He’s tall, he’s handsome, he looks like a Viking,” de Lesseps, 55, recalled.
Teresa Giudice & Luis 'Louie' Ruelas
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star announced on Facebook she's “excited to reveal my new boyfriend,” alongside a photo of the new couple cuddled up at a football game.
The mother of four is dating businessman Ruelas, a source confirmed to PEOPLE.
Another source added that "she is very happy, but taking things very slow."
Teresa, 48, linked to a Celebuzz article about her new relationship, which cited Page Six, who was the first to report.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Ruelas is the co-founder and EVP of Business Development at Digital Media Solutions, located in Clearwater, Florida.
Teresa split from ex-husband Joe Giudice in December 2019 after 20 years of marriage. The former couple, who finalized their divorce in September, share daughters Gia, 19, Milania, 14, Gabriella, 16, and Audriana, 11.
Garrett Yrigoyen & Alex Farrar
The Bachelorette alum appeared to make his relationship Instagram official with new love interest Farrar on Oct. 31. During a fall outing with the yoga instructor, Yrigoyen wrote, "🎃 Happy Halloween 💀 Picked up a special pumpkin at the patch 👻 #halloween."
"Best pumpkin in all the land 🧡🧡," Farrar commented.
The post comes two months after Yrigoyen's ex-fiancée Becca Kuffrin confirmed their split.
Kufrin, 30, appeared to react to Yrigoyen's potential new relationship, writing on her Instagram Story "Sunday lesson" as she posted the quote from We the Urban, "Be mindful of how you react to people when you feel disrespected."
Kaia Gerber & Jacob Elordi
Elordi and Gerber first became romantically linked in early September when they were spotted dining at the same restaurant, Nobu Malibu. Later that month, the couple were then seen holding hands as they made their way to dinner in New York City.
Since then, the couple continued to spark their romance rumors as they later went on to vacation in Los Cabos, Mexico, with Gerber's parents, Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber later that month.
Adele & Skepta
The 32-year-old pop star has a new man in her life: rapper and fellow Brit Skepta, 38, a source close to Adele confirmed to PEOPLE in this week's issue.
In recent months "things have been heating up," the source said of the new couple. "They run in the same circles in London, and she's having fun."
Adele — who filed for divorce from husband Simon Konecki last September — and Skepta (real name Joseph Junior Adenuga) have been friends for years and share a deep connection over music, their shared home neighborhood of Tottenham, London, and being parents to young children, according to sources.
"Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check," Skepta — who has a 2-year-old daughter, River, from a previous relationship — said in a 2016 interview with the Evening Standard. "She speaks to me about how things are going."
Kathryn Dennis & Chleb Ravenell
They’re Instagram official! The Southern Charm star, 29, shared a cuddly photo of herself and Ravenell, 32, embracing on her feed.
"They've been dating a few months now," a source told PEOPLE of the couple back in July. "They have good chemistry together."
"He's met the kids and is good with them," added the source of Dennis' two children, Kensie, 6, and son Saint, 4, whom she shares with ex Thomas Ravenel. (Despite their very similar last names, he has no relation to Ravenell.)
According to his LinkedIn profile, Chleb currently works as a Product Specialist at Apple.
Lindsay Ell & Adam Roa
"Every moment spent with you makes me smile," she captioned a photo of Roa giving her a kiss.
The two have been spending time together over the last several months, both making trips between L.A. and Nashville. In early October, the pair also led a songwriting workshop together called Write from the Heart.

"Getting back in the dating world for me is fun and exciting," she continued.
McEntire explained that she and Linn went on their first date in January, and since then have kept in touch virtually due to the pandemic. She described the year as "a lot of fun."
"It's good to have a person to talk to, laugh with, get into subjects about what's going on," she said. "Discussions about our past, our family, funny stories, him being an actor, me being an actress. And he's very into my music. I'm very into his career."
"It's just great getting to talk to somebody who I find very interesting, very funny, very smart and is interested in me, too," she added.

The couple matched for the beachside occasion, both wearing Versace swimwear, as Woods captioned her post, "I found you, then I found me."

Red hot red carpet couple coming through!
Wilson and boyfriend Busch (whose family founded the brewing company Anheuser-Busch) made their red carpet debut at the Monte-Carlo Gala For Planetary Health in Monte-Carlo, Monaco on Sept. 24. Their black-tie moment came just hours after the actress made their relationship Instagram official earlier that day.
The new couple were introduced by a friend last year and fostered a romance while Wilson was in Australia and Busch stayed in L.A. during quarantine, PEOPLE has learned. The pair got serious after Wilson returned stateside and reunited with Busch in California.

"They are spending some time together on vacation and are enjoying each other’s company while traveling," a source told PEOPLE on Aug. 27.
Pitt, 56, and Poturalski, 27, have known each other for at least a year, a separate source told PEOPLE on Sept. 2, and were first spotted together acting “very flirty” at an after party for the August 2019 Berlin premiere of his movie Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood.

Representatives for Santana and Leto did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.
The sighting comes eight months after Santana parted ways with fiancé Jesse Metcalfe, whom she had been dating for more than 10 years before the split. Metcalfe, 41, is recently romantically linked to model Corin Jamie Lee Clark, according to a report by E! News.
Reps for Metcalfe and Clark did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.
Tiffany Haddish & Common
The actress and comedian confirmed that she's dating rapper Common on Steve-O's podcast, Steve-O’s Wild Ride, on July 30.
"I am in a relationship," Haddish, who shaved her head last month, said before confirming that Common was the lucky man.
"Yeah, we're twins now," she joked.
“I’ve been talking about cutting my hair for years … he said it was beautiful," she shared. "He’s like, ‘Wow, you did it man. You’ve got a lot of courage. You look so beautiful. I love it.’ And I’m like, ‘Ahh, put your head on my head.' "
After meeting on the set of the 2019 film The Kitchen, Haddish and Common "became friends," the actress said, but added that it "wasn't anything sexual or anything like that because my eyes were set on something else."
However, after the pair went on a virtual Bumble date, their relationship blossomed.
Simone Biles & Jonathan Owens
“It’s just us,” the Olympian captioned a sweet photo slideshow on August 2 of herself and new boyfriend, football player Jonathan Owens.
The first pic shows Biles smiling and Owen standing behind her, while the second shows the two snuggling up to each other.
One day earlier, Biles also shared a short video of the Houston Texans safety on her Instagram Story, captioning the clip with a series of affectionate emojis.
News of the new couple comes shortly after Biles confirmed her split from Stacey Ervin Jr. in July in a cover story for Vogue, explaining that the pair had called it quits in March after three years of dating — which fans had suspected for months, after noticing that he did not wish her a happy birthday.
Machine Gun Kelly & Megan Fox
Kelly and Fox have gone Instagram official!
The couple posed for a black and white mirror selfie which the rapper, whose real name is Colson Baker, shared on his Instagram account on July 28.
"Waited for eternity to find you again ... 🔪💫❤️🔪," Kelly, 30, wrote in the caption.
The photo comes two months after the couple were first romantically linked in May, prompting Fox's estranged husband Brian Austin Green to confirm they separated late last year after 10 years of marriage.
During a joint interview on the Give Them Lala ... With Randall podcast, hosted by Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent and her fiancé Emmett, Fox shared that she felt an instant connection with Kelly once they began working together.
"I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame," she said. "Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time. So we're actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away."
Chris Soules & Victoria Fuller
The Bachelor stars have been together for four months and despite dating during a pandemic, they're managing just fine.
"We're really happy," Fuller told PEOPLE on July 21, opening up for the first time about her relationship with Soules, who was the star of The Bachelor's season 19 in 2015. "The last few months have been really special for us. We're enjoying each other!"
Fuller met former Bachelor Soules through mutual friend — and Soules' fellow Iowa native — Kelsey Weier, who competed with Fuller on Peter Weber's Bachelor season.
"She was like, 'I think he's single and he's very attractive, you should talk to him,' " recalled Fuller.
When the pair finally met in person in Soules' hometown of Arlington, Iowa, in early April, "I think we were both really nervous," said Fuller. "But it wasn't awkward. It felt really natural. And immediately, I was like, 'I really like him!' I felt a genuine connection. And Iowa is so quiet — we were able to just focus on each other and enjoy each other's company."
However, in September, Fuller revealed the two have split. Admitting that their relationship was "complicated," Fuller told Nick Viall on his Viall Files podcast, "I'm just living my life and he is an amazing man and he deserves somebody super awesome who's willing to like go to Iowa and live in Iowa and right now I'm just not there yet. Maybe I will be in a couple years."
Brian Austin Green & Tina Louise
A source told PEOPLE, "Brian is dating and seems happy with Tina. He isn't seeing anyone else."
The relationship is "serious enough that he wants to only date her right now," said the source. "He is still obviously married though. He and Megan still have to figure out if they want to file for divorce or not."
About one month after their first date, a source told PEOPLE the pair were taking a break.
Andy King & Craig McBlain
Fyre Festival's famous event planner is in love! King, who rose to viral fame after his appearance in the 2019 Netflix documentary Fyre, introduced his new boyfriend on Instagram on July 15.
"It only took 58 years to find true love," King, 58, captioned a photo of the new couple, alongside a heart emoji and the hashtags "#neverstoplooking," "scotland," "usa" and "spreadlove."

The Australian actress' comments section was quickly flooded with messages, with The Vampire Diaries costar Claire Holt responding to the shot, "😍."
Taylor Schilling & Emily Ritz
The Orange Is the New Black star seemingly confirmed that she's dating artist Ritz by re-posting a photo that Ritz shared of them together on her Instagram Story in late June.
"I couldn't be more proud to be by your side @TaylorSchilling Happy Pride!" Ritz wrote across the image, which shows herself and Schilling sharing a warm embrace while standing atop and overlook.
Schilling added several red heart emojis over the post.
A rep for Schilling did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.
Ritz and Schilling met through mutual friends and began dating late last year, according to Just Jared.

The rapper is dating model Bidot, and they've made it Instagram official on June 15.
"Somehow in the middle of all the madness, something special happened. Us," Bidot wrote in the caption of her Instagram Story, alongside an emoji of a black heart.

The actor, 27, shared snaps from the couple’s beach date on Instagram, writing, “"cats outta the bag."
The pair first sparked romance rumors in April, when Stokes told PEOPLE he was self-quarantining with Cline — as well as costars Drew Starkey and Rudy Pankow.
Meghan King Edmonds & Christian Schauf
The former Real Housewives star has a new man in her life!
PEOPLE confirmed that King has been dating Schauf, a businessman from Park City, Utah. Reports of their relationship hit in late May, though a source close to the pair said their romance is still in its early stages.
"They met back in March through a mutual friend," the source said. "Things are still pretty new, but it's going very well so far."
Another insider added that the two had "instant chemistry" and "a lot in common."
"She just got out of a long relationship and has a lot on her plate," the insider said. "This has been a great break from that stress for her. It's nice to see her so happy and wish someone who appreciates her the way she should be."
King shares three kids (1-year-old twin boys Hart and Hayes and 3-year-old daughter Aspen) with estranged husband Jim Edmonds. She has yet to go Instagram official with her new boyfriend, though the two are currently together in Utah while Edmonds has his scheduled time with the kids.
Neither immediately responded to PEOPLE's request for comment, but PEOPLE's first source insists they likely won't go public right away. "She wants to keep things private, for now," the source said.

Hadid is loving life on the east coast with boyfriend Jingoli.
In a recent interview with Bravo's The Daily Dish, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star opened up about living full time on the East Coast — just a few miles away from Jingoli, who is the CEO of a construction and development company.
"I don't really want to talk too much about my private life, but yes, I have been in a relationship for 15 months and I'm very much in love with my boyfriend," said Hadid.
