A month later, Jones went public with the relationship at the 8th Annual Children’s Museum of the East End Family Affair in Bridgehampton, New York, attending the event with Lugo and his son, Jake.
“This is my family,” she told PEOPLE at the time, introducing the Lugos. “I’m not married, but we’re together.”
In the months since, she hasn’t been shy about showing off their relationship, sharing photos and videos of the two and celebrating Lugo and his son on Father’s Day with a sweet post.
“Happy #fathersday to my prince,” she gushed. “I love you in a place where there is no space or time.”
