Even better, during an April 2023 episode of the BFFS podcast, the Canadian confessed that Gabi is "100 percent" his type, adding that he "likes hanging out with her; she's a really nice girl, she's funny."

Since then, Josh and Gabi have been inseparable; the two are frequently making appearances on each other's TikTok accounts. Plus, the pair also attended the Barbie premiere and even vacationed in Hawaii together.

On July 25, 2023, Josh posted a TikTok with Gabi and confirmed they're in a relationship: "We got our first package as a couple," he captioned the video. Oh, so it's official official... interesting.

"You know it's getting kinda serious when both of our names are on a package," Josh joked in the video before saying that he and Gabi were going to open it together "as a couple." It didn't turn out as planned, as the package contained swimsuits for Gabi — sorry Josh! However, that didn't stop him from trying on a bikini top.

For her part, Nessa reflected on their "very serious relationship" during an October 2022 episode of Call Her Daddy: "It was too serious for how young we were," she shared. "He was a part of Sway at the time, too. I mean, those boys, they were blowing up. That was their prime when we started dating."

The "madhouse" singer added, "It's hard to resist some things, and I wouldn't say that this is the truth, but how I felt at the time was that a lot of the good parts of our relationship was simply for views and content. It got really hard for me to process because I fall for people heavy, I get very attached. Seeing things a certain way, I couldn't understand it."
