Michael B. Jordan has a new special woman in his life.

On Sunday, PEOPLE's reigning Sexiest Man Alive debuted his romance with Lori Harvey on social media, sharing a photo on Instagram of the pair for the first time.

Jordan, 33, posted two portraits of him and Harvey, including one photo of them smiling at one another in close embrace. Meanwhile, Harvey, 24, shared two Polaroid shots of the couple, which she captioned with a heart emoji.

For months, the Creed actor and Harvey had been romantically linked after they were photographed together during the holiday season in the Atlanta airport and then in Salt Lake City.

Here's everything you need to know about Jordan's new romantic partner.

She's Steve Harvey's stepdaughter

Lori is the stepdaughter of Family Feud host Steve Harvey: her mother, Marjorie Bridges, married Steve in June 2007. Steve later adopted Lori as well as her siblings Morgan and Jason.

In May 2016, Steve and Marjorie opened up to PEOPLE about blending their households after they reconnected years after dating and then drifting apart.

"I said, 'Look, you don't like it? Deal with it. I don't need y'all's permission,' " Steve told PEOPLE.

Added Marjorie, "When you're dealing with a blended family, everyone is coming from a place of broken. We knew this was right. But I just told them, 'Everyone is included. Everyone has access to their parents. Whatever you didn't have before, don't let that interfere with what you can have now.' "

She was previously engaged

In May 2017, Lori got engaged to Dutch professional soccer player Memphis Depay after nearly a year and a half of dating.

Lori posted a few gorgeous photos on social media from the proposal, which documented her surprise and elation at her fiancé getting down on one knee. "WE'RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!" she wrote on Twitter.

Memphis also took to Twitter to share the exciting news with his fan base. "SHE SAID YESSS!!!!!" he tweeted alongside a picture from the proposal.

The couple later split, and Lori was spotted in 2018 without her engagement ring.

She's been romantically linked to Future and Sean 'Diddy' Combs

Lori first sparked dating rumors with Future in December 2019 after the rapper, 37, shared a photo of Lori on his Instagram Story. "Flawless. Tap for details," Future, wrote over a photo of Lori posing in black leather pants, a cropped top and a diamond chain.

The pair previously spent time together the month prior, when Lori attended Future's all-white birthday party in Atlanta. In a video shared by The Shade Room, Lori could be seen cheering happily as Future blew out candles on his birthday cake.

Prior to her relationship with Future, Lori had a rumored romance with Sean "Diddy" Combs. The pair were spotted in August 2019 strolling around New York City wearing matching outfits and also vacationed in Italy with Steve and Marjorie.

The couple were last seen together publicly in September 2019. The following month, their relationship seemingly came to an end when Lori appeared to have unfollowed the hip hop mogul, 51, on Instagram.

She's had run-ins with the law

Lori was arrested in October 2019 after she allegedly hit a parked vehicle in Los Angeles and attempting to flee the scene. Authorities told PEOPLE at the time that Lori's car was found on its side next to the parked vehicle that she had hit on Moreno Drive — and that she was detained a short distance away. She was arrested and released at the scene without physical booking on a misdemeanor citation. 

In January 2020, Lori was charged with two misdemeanors — including one count of resisting, delaying, obstructing a peace officer and one count of hit and run resulting in property damage — in relation to the incident.

She pleaded not guilty during her arraignment on Jan. 21, and was expected to be back in court on Feb. 28 for a pretrial hearing.
