We’ve been fans of Cody Simpson and Gigi Hadid’s relationship ever since the two made their romance official. The Aussie pop star and Yolanda Foster’s daughter announced their relationship back in November 2013 and have since gone everywhere from the red carpet to the Caribbean — but now Cody, who is rumored to be joining the new season of Dancing With the Stars, is coming forward about his decision to make his relationship public.

“I recently got involved in my first serious relationship. It was something that seriously meant a lot to me,” Cody tells Fuse about dating a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills offspring. “Almost too much to really keep it a secret.”

But while Cody didn’t want to keep his love with Gigi a secret, he was a little apprehensive to come forward about it, all out of concern for Gigi.

“My girlfriend is the sweetest girl,” Cody continued. “I was kind of nervous at first to see how people would react to the fact that we were together. From what I’ve seen, the majority of the fans are very supportive of me. If she makes me happy, then my fans are happy, so it’s a good thing.”

And to top it off, Cody says Gigi is inspiring his music.

“The songs I work on, in general, are usually reflective on what’s important in my life at the time,” he said. “With how important the relationship is in my life, I wrote a lot about experiences that I have had with her [Gigi] and girls in general.”

Sounds like things are in perfect harmony between Cody and Gigi.
