Apa revealed his girlfriend’s pregnancy news in a May mirror selfie via Instagram. The pair sat on a couch in the social media upload, the France native’s bare bump on display with her shirt pulled up.
Berry, 27, posted the same photo to her own account, captioning the sweet shot with emojis of kids and eggs.
The New Zealand native’s costars commented on the announcement, from Asha Bromfield to Charles Melton. The Hurricane Summer author, 26, wrote, “Congratulations!” while the The Sun Is Also a Star actor, 30, left heart emojis.
The then-expectant star began documenting her pregnancy progress via social media, writing the following week: “No need to hide or retouch anymore.” She modeled sweatsuits that same month and posed with friends in “Mom-treal” in June.
She and Apa made their relationship public when the Songbird star posted a PDA photo to Instagram in February 2020, two months after they were spotted flirting on the app. He wrote a French phrase “coup de foudre” at the time, which translates to “a sudden unforeseen event, in particular an instance of love at first sight.”
Six months later, Apa posted nude photos of his girlfriend, writing, “There’s nowhere else.” She commented, “Jtm,” an abbreviation for “I love you” in French. She went on to tell one of his followers: “He is the only one in the world in my eyes.”
The Hate U Give star, however, spent the start of the coronavirus quarantine with Cole Sprouse. “Him and KJ, in the very beginning of quarantine, ended up staying together at KJ’s place in Los Angeles,” the Suite Life of Zack and Cody’s twin brother, Dylan Sprouse, told Entertainment Tonight in May 2020. “So, they’re isolating together, which is very cute. I heard they’re just lifting weights and eating cheese. I think that’s what they do.”
Apa was previously romantically linked to Girlboss‘ Britt Robertson in July 2019, two years after they finished filming A Dog’s Purpose. One month after Us Weekly broke the news of their fling, Paris Hilton was spotted getting “super flirty” with the I Still Believe star at a Hollywood party, a guest exclusively told Us.Moms Like Us tackles all your parenting questions and breaks down all the celebrity parenting news of the week.
