TikTok favorite JoJo Siwa introduced her girlfriend Kylie on Monday in a heartwarming Instagram post. 

“I’ve been the happiest I have ever been!” Siwa wrote in the caption. She tagged her girlfriend, who only goes by Kylie on Instagram and whose bio states that she’s a “human golden retriever.”

Siwa also announced that it was the couple’s first month anniversary and that the two began dating after being best friends for “over a year.”

“She seriously is the most loving, supportive, happiest, protective, and just the most beautiful perfect person in the world,” Siwa wrote. “And I get to call her mine!”

The former Dance Moms star posted four photos with Kylie, including some that appear to have been taken at Disney World. The first photo shows the two doing a rendition of the “follow me to” pose wherein the camera shows their backs as one leads the other by the hand.

The internet exploded with joy over Siwa’s post and the news of her girlfriend’s identity. Celebrities including Paris Hilton shared their excitement in the comments, and others tweeted their best wishes.

Siwa’s girlfriend Kylie seems to be getting some of the love as well: On Monday afternoon, she had more than 116,000 followers on Instagram, over 19,000 more than she had just a few hours before.

The “likes” on her photos are also quite telling: Her most recent photo has more than 40,000 likes, far surpassing the likes on her previous photos. On Monday, Kylie also posted a series of photos and videos of her and Siwa.

“Fall in love with your best friend, guys,” she wrote. “It’s THE BEST feeling in the entire world.”

Siwa came out in January through a TikTok video and, following the announcement, fought off homophobes online.
