Dr. Who fans—or fans of the hunky Matt Smith, really—prepare to be heartbroken.

He and Lily James have made their first official appearance as a couple during the Milan premiere of Cinderella Wednesday, in which James plays the titular character. Co-star Richard Madden and director Kenneth Branagh also joined the 25-year-old actress in addition to her 32-year-old boyfriend.

The couple glowed as they posed for pics on the carpet. She wore a grin that spanned her whole face while he looked on at her adoringly. Can you say "swoon"? Wearing an Erdem dress with Jimmy Choo shoes, James looked just as magical as Cinderella does at the ball.

Smith's low-key romance with the Downton Abbey star was confirmed when they were caught kissing back in October, so it's safe to say these two are still doing really well! At the time, however, she denied the rumors.

"Me and Matt are not together," she told the Scottish Daily News. "He's just my friend and we hang out a lot. We have the same circle of friends."

She added, "We get on really well as we have a lot in common with acting."

They got on so well, in fact, that they did start a relationship! But don't expect her to open up about her love life.

"In regards to your love life, you're just entering into a whole of pain if you talk about it," she explained to InStyle magazine. "If you've never said anything, there are no sound bites to haunt you when you're crying into a box of Kleenex after it all goes wrong."

Even though we're slightly heartbroken about their love, they do look incredibly happy together, so we're glad to see they've finally made things official! But no matter who James has by her side, she is one lucky lady.

After all, she is choosing between Prince Charming and (the former) Dr. Who!
