KJ Apa is dating model Clara Berry.

KJ's Instagram is filled with behind-the-scenes shots of his Riverdale co-stars, family gatherings, and solo pictures. But he very much likes to keep his romantic life private. However, in February 2019, KJ shared a picture of himself kissing a mystery woman. After that post and a few public outings, it was confirmed by 2020: The actor's girlfriend is 26-year-old French model Clara Berry!

A few days after KJ shared that photo, Clara uploaded a picture of the pair kissing in Bali, solidifying their union. The 23-year-old star found love with the French model, and their relationship quickly got serious.

Although KJ is known for his blockbuster roles, Clara has enjoyed quite a bit of fame in the modeling and influencer realms. With a modeling roster that includes Tommy Hilfiger, Off-White, and Victor & Rolf, she has proven her staying power in the industry.

Back in January 2021, Clara poured her heart out about KJ in another one of their loving posts. The caption confirmed a previously unknown detail of their relationship: that their anniversary is sometime in January. "This year with you baby was unreal. I love you unconditionally, without control, and with all my heart," the model wrote alongside the snapshot.

The duo just announced that they're expecting their first child together.

In line with his usual tendency to be a bit vague while posting on social media, KJ shared a foggy image of him and Clara sitting on a couch with her belly clearly visible. He wrote in the comments of the post, "She's pregnant btw."

Clara followed up her boo's post with her own revealing snapshot, fully showcasing her baby bump for fans.

The photo has been liked well over two million times, and a bunch of KJ's Riverdale stars jumped in the comments to give their well-wishes to the soon-to-be parents.

Show mainstay Lili Reinhart shared a trio of red heart emojis, while Camila Mendes wrote, "Another neném on the way."

"Rivers soon to be bestie," chimed in Vanessa Morgan, clearly excited that her 4-month-old son (whose father is Michael Kopech) will have a new friend to play with.

We wish KJ and Clara luck as they navigate newfound parenthood together!
