Teddy Geiger stepped out for her first Grammys on Sunday.

The pop star-turned-singer-songwriter hit the red carpet with fiancée Emily Hampshire ahead of the 61st annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.

Geiger, 30, wore a simple, black off-the-shoulder dress, strappy black sandals and no accessories save for her engagement ring; Schitt’s Creek star Hampshire, 37, wore a white suit (sans camisole!) and rocked a red lip, hoops, a chunky bangle and black clutch.

First-time nominee Geiger was up for the song of the year prize for “In My Blood,” the arena-rock anthem she co-wrote with Canadian heartthrob and longtime friend Shawn Mendes.

Following the Grammy nominations’ announcement in December, Geiger shared a tear-stained selfie on Instagram, writing: “In My Blood is nominated for song of the year 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 thank u @shawnmendes for having me be a part of your journey.”

Geiger rose to fame in 2006 with the Top 40 pop hit “For You I Will (Confidence).” She came out as transgender and revealed she was transitioning in October of 2017. The musician — who now releases solo music under the moniker “teddy<3” — has documented her journey on Instagram and has started opening up about her transition in interviews.

“I just feel more open,” Geiger told the New York Times in a 2018 profile.

In August 2018, Geiger and Hampshire took their relationship public. Then in November, they announced their engagement.

“I love this woman so much she treats me like a lil princess and makes me laugh harder than anyone. I am so f—ing happy to wake up next to her every morning and fall asleep next to her every night and take care of our lil B.B. stumbs together,” Geiger wrote, adding, “Which is why… When she asked me if I wanted to spend the rest of our lives together I said… YES … INFINITE YES.”

The 61st Annual Grammy Awards are broadcasting live from Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS.
