Last week, American Idol Season 11 teens Jessica Sanchez and DeAndre Brackensick confirmed that they are totes girlfriend and boyfriend right now.

But what seemed to many like a new love freshly grown during the Idol Live Summer Tour has reportedly been going on for longer than we thought!

According to ABS-CBN News, Jessica has admitted that she and DeAndre “kept it a secret for a while” that they’d become romantically linked. Although she didn’t reveal just how long “a while” is, she did explain why she ultimately decided to share the news with the world.

I kind of felt guilty after a while because I tell my fans everything and they want them to know everything about me,” she said.  

Aw, so sweet! Jessica is nothing if not dedicated to those “blujays” of hers!
