Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson have been making news ever since their first appearance together in 2017. As June is officially Pride month for the LGBTQ+ community, it should come as no surprise that Delevingne — who came out as bisexual in 2015 — would celebrate it as well. What fans were not expecting, though, was the Instagram post that the model had made for Ashley Benson last Friday, confirming what everyone had already suspected.

The couple has been seen multiple times being sweet to each other, even showing a bit of PDA for cameras to catch — like when they were photographed sharing a “passionate kiss” at Heathrow Airport in 2017. Although rumors have been swirling for more than a year about them being together, they have not officially gone public with their relationship status. This changed last week, after Delevingne posted a video on Instagram of them making out, tagging Benson and writing the caption “#Pride.”

When asked about the reason why she decided to go public, the actress-model gave two reasons: the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and her first anniversary of her relationship with Ashley. “I don’t know because it is Pride, it’s been 50 years since Stonewall happened and I don’t know,” she said. “It’s been just a bit over our one year anniversary so, why not?” she continued.

In her speech while accepting the Hero Award for her commitment to ending suicide among LGBTQ youth at the TrevorLIVE Gala, Delevingne gave a shout-out to Benson, thanking her for the love and support throughout her ordeals.

“I also have another very special woman in this room to thank and you know who you are,” she said. “She's one of the people who help me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought.”

To even make the moment sweeter, Benson — whom Delevingne adoringly calls “Sprinkles” — captured the speech and posted it on her Instagram Story. “Love you. proud of you,” wrote Benson.
