The twosome were first linked earlier this year when they were spotted on a takeout date at Japanese restaurant Matsuhisa Beverly Hills. Though Elliot, 27, had previously appeared on Sofia's Instagram in a friendly elevator selfie, Sofia went public with their romance in April by posting a series of PDA-packed photos that included a shot of herself kissing her new man.

Much like Sofia, whose dad is legendary singer and American Idol judge Lionel Richie, Elliot is also musical royalty: The founder of record label 10K Projects is the son of Lucian Grainge, CEO of Universal Music Group.

A source previously told E! News that Sofia and Elliot "have known each other for years" due to their fathers being friends but "weren't close growing up." They started hanging out this year and sparks flew.
