Happy birthday, Cara Delevingne!

The actress and model, who turns 27 today, made every shipper's dream come true this June when she posted a video of her giving Ashley Benson a kiss. With that, their rumored romance was confirmed and they had fans showing nothing but support. In fact, in our PCAs Best of Summer tournament, the duo took home the Best Couple title by a landslide.

While we don't know for sure when their meet-cute was (possibly when co-starring on the 2018 film Her Smell), initial suspicions that the two could be dating cropped up last May, when they were spotted holding hands in New York City. Over the following months, a paparazzi here or there would capture the two kissing, but they never had gone public with their relationship.

That is, until a few months ago, when the Paper Towns actress posted that steamy video with the Pretty Little Liars alum and made it official!

In an exclusive interview with E!, Delevingne stated that the timing of her post coincided with Pride month, specifically being 50 years since the Stonewall riots and that it was just over the couple's first anniversary.

Since then, they continue to be adorable and support one another. Benson—who Delevingne sweetly calls "Sprinkles"—even got a tattoo of her girlfriend's initials "CD" on her side.

We're so happy for them! To celebrate the star's birthday, take a look at the cutest photos of the two over the last romantic year.
