Boo'd up on the red carpet!

Megan Thee Stallion showed up to the iHeartRadio Music Awards with a special guest: her boyfriend Pardison Fontaine, for the couple's first red carpet appearance.

The couple dazzled on the red carpet as they wore matching beige outfits. Megan Thee Stallion, 26, wore a short golden dress, matching pumps and VRAI mixed cuff rings while he wore a khaki suit look.

It was a big night for the rap star who won the best collaboration award for her track "Savage" with Beyoncé.

"I really want to thank the hotties because without y'all I would be nothing," she said, before adding, "I want to thank my grandma for believing in me also. Everything I do I do for my family, for the hotties and for myself."

In February, Megan revealed that Fontaine was her "boo."

"I don't be liking some of the stuff on the internet," she said at the time "People don't know what the hell they talking about, they just be saying anything. I didn't like what they was trying to say about Pardi 'cause he is so calm and so sweet."

"That's my boo, and I really like him," Megan continued.

Megan also defended herself when a viewer called her a "simp" during the stream, replying back, "I never said hot girls can't have boyfriends," according to Revolt.
