Things are heating up between Adam Rippon and his new boyfriend.
The 28-year-old Olympic figure skater broke hearts around the world when he announced that he was officially off the market last month, revealing he was in a relationship with Finnish-born Jussi-Pekka Kajaala.
Adam confirmed the news by sharing a photo of himself alongside Jussi-Pekka, who he reportedly met on Tinder.
Speaking to Extra ahead of the Dancing With The Stars finale this week, at which Adam is expected to take home first place, the figure skater was asked by host Mario Lopez about his boyfriend and how they met.
“He’s from Finland and I was actually at a competition many months ago [when we met],” Adam explained.
Asked if his boyfriend still lives in Finland, he replied: “He does yeah, but he’s actually thinking about moving out here.”
“Oh so [it’s] serious?” asked Mario, to which Adam replied, “Yes.”

Adam Rippon has been at the forefront of headlines this year.
After he became the first openly gay athlete from Team USA to qualify for the games in South Korea, his relationship with fellow out Olympian – and Gay Times cover model – Gus Kenworthy went viral. They shared a kiss in defiance of Mike Pence – and the internet went wild.
The skater’s appearance on several talk shows also boosted his popularity.
During an appearance on The Ellen Show, he admitted his celebrity crush was Canadian pop star, Shawn Mendes. A few weeks later, the two posed for a selfie during the Oscars, and again, the internet went crazy.
