JoJo Siwa celebrated the premiere of Nickelodeon’s The J Team with someone special by her side.
Walking the red carpet on Friday, September 6, JoJo was joined by her girlfriend Kylie Prew. As People points out, the joint appearance marked the first time the two appeared in public as a couple.
Posing for a number of adorable photos together, the pair even shared in some PDA, stopping for a few kisses. Kylie also wore her affection and support of JoJo on her hoodie and was photographed in a blue top emblazoned with the words The J Team on the front.
As for JoJo, she chose to don one of her colorful signature bows. Wearing her hair tied up, her colorful hair accessory matched the sparkle and pops of pink on Kylie’s ponytail holder.
JoJo first shared in February that she had a girlfriend. At the time, she hadn’t named who she was dating, only saying that the two talked “24/7.” She added that she was excited to share in her coming out journey with fans, saying, “Now I get to share what makes me the happiest in the world. And it makes my heart happy.”
Months later, JoJo again referenced Kylie, sharing a bit more about the relationship in a speech at the GLAAD Media Awards. “I have the best, most amazing, wonderful girlfriend in the entire world who makes me so, so, so happy,” she said.
As for how she met Kylie, JoJo told People that the two came across one another on a cruise ship. “I told her my whole spiel that I tell everyone when they ask me my life story,” JoJo said. “She goes, ‘I could have Googled that. I want to know your life story. You just told me about your career. I want to know about you.’ And I was like, No one’s ever asked me that before.”
After coming out, JoJo had initially chosen not to label her sexuality, saying, “I always believed that my person was just going to be my person. And if that person happened to be a boy, great, and if that person happened to be a girl, great!”
She later told People that she was figuring it out. “I still don’t know what I am. It’s like, I want to figure it out. And I have this joke. Her name is Kylie. And so I say that I’m Ky-sexual,” she said. “But like, I don’t know, bisexual, pansexual, queer, lesbian, gay, straight. I always just say gay because it just kind of covers it or queer because I think the keyword is cool.”
She continued, saying, “Technically I would say that I am pansexual because that’s how I have always been my whole life is just like, my human is my human.”
