Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone are finally award show-official!

The duo, who were first spotted together at the end of 2017, have been very private about their relationship — until now. DiCaprio, 45, and Morrone, 22, arrived at the 2020 Academy Awards separately, but were spotted sitting next to each other front row during the ceremony. As Janelle Monáe, Billy Porter and more took the stage for the opening performance, cameras panned to the front row A-listers, including DiCaprio and his girlfriend together side-by-side.

The duo, who were first spotted together at the end of 2017, have kept very quiet about their relationship, despite being out and about promoting their respective films (Morrone recently received buzz for her breakout role in the independent film Mickey and the Bear).

In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Morrone opened up about her and DiCaprio’s 23-year age gap for the first time.

“There’s so many relationships in Hollywood — and in the history of the world — where people have large age gaps,” Morrone told the outletabout dating DiCaprio.

Morrone added, “I just think anyone should be able to date who they want to date.”

But she still understands why people are interested in her relationship with DiCaprio, saying, “I probably would be curious about it, too.”

They’ve been spotted out together numerous times, most recently in October when they were photographed holding hands while walking around N.Y.C., and attended the 2019 Cannes Film Festival together, though did not walk the carpet together. This award season, DiCaprio has attended both the 2020 Golden Globes and 2020 SAGs, but waked both red carpets solo.

A source told PEOPLE in July that the Oscar-winning actor and the model were more serious than ever.

They seem pretty serious,” the source said. “It’s definitely not a casual relationship. Camila spends a lot of time at his house.”
