It’s true! The pair have been seeing each other since working on an as-yet-unnamed film project last year, but they’ve mostly kept quiet about being together – until now.

In a recent episode of Chelsea Handler’s Dear Chelsea… podcast, the comedian finally convinced Justin to be with Kate.

During a chat about love, Chelsea asked Justin, “Am I allowed to say his name?” regarding Kate being his partner.

After agreeing to speak about his relationship with Kate, Justin opened up about why he was private when it came to talking directly about the topic.

“There’s something about it, for me, that I feel I have to protect and keep sacred because it feels sacred to me,” he said.

“I’ve never had anything like this before, I’ve never been through this. So it’s something I want to protect and keep, you know?”

This may be the first time Justin has spoken directly about his relationship with Kate, but it’s not the first time he’s spoken about being in the relationship itself. Confused? I’ll explain.

Late last year, he confirmed his relationship status on an episode of his own podcast Life is short with Justin Long (get it?) – but he didn’t name Kate specifically.

He also shared his feelings about his relationship with Kate on Nick Viall’s podcast, The Viall files.

This guy loves being on podcasts!

“I had come to a place where I was comfortable with myself,” he said of where he was when he met Kate. “I didn’t know it at the time, but I was ready for this one.”

Kate herself has yet to say anything publicly about their relationship, but! She praised Justin in an Instagram post last May, with photos showing the two of them.
