Just when we guessed “Shawnmila” couldn’t get any cuter, things got more interesting. In a new interview with Audacity Check-In on August 20, Shawn Mendes uncovered how the pandemic brought him and Camila Cabello closer to each other.
“It feels good. It was like writing about the first couple of months actually in the lockdown. Camila and I were so lucky because we were able to just kind of be in a still moment, and it was the first time in the past six years that we’ve been just able to relax and not work at all,” he said. “We were going on bike rides around Miami, and it just felt really beautiful.”
“Just kind of writing about that,” he continued. “Had a lot of nostalgia at that time, and I think without that time we found it a lot harder to connect. It brought us together.”
Shawn’s declarations about his connection with Camila come as no shock, as the Canadian vocalist has ever been open about their relationship and has even recently confessed that he sees a long-running future with the Havana singer.
“She’s been one of my best friends since I was, like, 15 years old. I don’t know, at the same time, I know we are young so I don’t want to jump, like, insanely fast, but I think when you find your person, you feel and you know that you have found your person,” Shawn confessed in a Dec. 4 interview.
And it appears as if the emotions are common. On August 8, the “Don’t Go Yet” singer had the sweetest tribute for her love for his birthday. “Happy birthday to the kindest, bravest, and most beautiful person I’ve ever known,” he wrote, featuring an image of him recording Camila with a camcorder. “I love you more every day, mi Vida,” he added, along with a heart emoji.
The pair have been going out since July 2019 and have amazing chemistry both on and off stage. Their relationship solely has no plans on slowing down. Even his dad has given him his stamp of permission and infers to Camila as his daughter-in-law.
“My dad is never very serious about things, but he would always bug me and be like, ‘How’s my daughter-in-law doing?’,” Shawn said. “Obviously your parents don’t know, but when you know you know, but I definitely went to them a lot about it.”
After two years, their bond is stronger than ever. Lately, fans have been able to see their romance blossom as the couple has been posting more of their time with each other on social media.
