The attention lavished on the thrice-divorced multi-hyphenate's relationship of two years with the former MLB star-turned-broadcaster hasn't gone unnoticed by either participant in the romance, thanks, in part, to the way in which they've been endlessly needled about their status since they made their red-carpet debut nearly two years ago at the 2017 Met Gala. And they get it. They really do.
"Everyone wants a fairy tale. They all want a romantic comedy, a happy ending. We all do," she told USA Today in December.
However, she's quick to point out, "But it's not a movie, even if you see us on Instagram or on the shows."
