Our heads are swirling with questions!

Summer 2019

The couple's meet-cute is truly the definition of a Bravo love story lol. These two first met during season 4 of Paige's show Summer House, when members of the Southern Charm cast, including Craig, guest-appeared on the show during a birthday party episode for Loverboy founder Kyle Cooke.

Truly a crossover moment for the books!

February 2021

These two took things to the next level after they became costars on season 1 of Winter House—a Bravo show in which stars from Summer House, Southern Charm, Vanderpump Rules, Summer House: Martha's Vineyard, Family Karma, and Below Deck come together and spend the winter in...a house together lol.

The inaugural series filmed in Vermont for 17 days, and in that time Paige developed a flirty 'ship with *checks notes* costar Andrea Denver while Craig was busy missing *checks notes again* his then-girlfriend Natalie Hegnauer. Yep, this isn't your average love story folks, but we promise it gets so much more 🥺❤️ soon.

April 20, 2021

Fans of the Bravo Cinematic Universe™️ were c-o-n-v-i-n-c-e-d there was something going on between Craig and Paige after she traveled to Charleston with friends. However, the Summer House star denied they were dating during an appearance on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast that month.

"Craig and I are a thousand percent not dating," she said at the time (hindsight = 20/20 lol). "Craig and I have known each other for years. We've always gotten along. We've always been friends. We have, like, very similar personalities. We are not romantically involved or anything, but we are very good friends."

August 19, 2021

The reality stars were snapped together at the PGA Tour's FedExCup Playoffs at the Liberty International Golf Course in New Jersey.

September 25, 2021

The now-couple added fuel to the romance rumors when they attended Kyle and fellow Summer House star Amanda Batula's wedding, where Paige served as a bridesmaid. Cute photo booth snap Paige posted on her Instagram story of the evening, incoming in 3...2...1...

October 2021

The duo FINALLY confirmed their 'ship!!!! During an interview with People, Craig opened up about the romance and how it was kinda sorta a long time coming.

"We both had a crush on each other from three years ago when I came to the Hamptons for Kyle's birthday party. We always had an eye for each other," he began before adding, "It was done in a healthy way. We built a friendship and got to know each other first, and it all happened naturally. You see the foundation of our relationship start to form on the show."

And in terms of why these two waited so long to make things public? "It confuses me when people didn't think it was real or that we were hanging out for publicity," the Southern Charm star said. "If it wasn't real then I'd be posting about it. I haven't posted a thing about it because it's so real."

October 18, 2021

While promoting season 1 of Winter House, Paige gushed about her boyfriend during an interview with Us Weekly.

"You’ll just have to see how it kind of plays out toward the end of our vacation. It sounds so cliché, but Craig just gets me," she said. "There’s a lot of things I don’t have to explain to him because we look at things very similarly. It just fits, like, it just is very natural and it’s a lot of fun."

November 2021

During an interview with E!'s Daily Pop, Paige revealed that she and Craig spent Thanksgiving together with the Sewing Down South creator's family in Delaware and her own family in New York. When asked about a possible engagement, she said, "I mean, we have only been dating for a couple of months. But if I can trick him into a diamond ring, I'm going to do it!"

December 19, 2021

The Bravolebrities made their 'ship Instagram official thanks to a gorgeous snap of them at a holiday event alongside the caption, "Sew in love." Truly obsessed with the play on words. 😭

January 11, 2021

The couple took things up a notch with a ski trip to Aspen with some of their friends. And, yes, Craig fully carried the team by posting all about it on Insta.

January 2022

Paige set the record straight on her and Craig's timeline during a convo with Entertainment Tonight. Apparently, the two first kissed in April 2021 and proceeded to do the ~"casually dating"~ thing in the months that followed.

As for what happened for her and Craig to take things to the next level? "I can't pinpoint a certain thing that he did or said, it was kind of just realizing how I felt about myself when I was with him," she explained. "And it was just kind of undeniable. Little things that I would get excited— if I had a text message from him on my phone—and it didn't even compare to when other guys would text me. So I knew that I was very into him a lot more than any other suitors that were around."

"We've had such a great six months already. We've talked about big things, just to see if we're aligned the way we feel about certain things—and we definitely are—but we're not even a year into our relationship. So, have we talked about a marriage and engagement, it's a normal conversation, but there's nothing very serious happening. We're only six months in," she added.

February 14, 2022

It's the couple's first Valentine's Day together!!! And in honor of the special day, Craig made a surprise appearance during Paige's live shopping event on Instagram, and the two took a moment to answer questions from fans about their 'ship...including how they felt about each other when they first met. 🥺❤️

Enter: Craig talking about how he'd already had a crush on Paige when he showed up to that fated Summer House crossover episode and asked her to go on the water slide with him. "We ran up the water slide, went down the water slide, and then she walked away and didn't talk to me for like two years after," he recalled, to which Paige cheekily said, "And now we're dating."

March 2022

Paige returned the favor and supported the release of Craig's debut memoir, Pillow Talk: What's Wrong with My Sewing?

Pillow Talk: What's Wrong with My Sewing?


At the time, the Southern Charm actor gushed that his girlfriend's support meant "everything" during an interview with People. "Paige just sent me flowers to my hotel room because it's launch day. I'm opening them right now. She's a great teammate and partner. She's an incredibly supportive person. She's so sweet," he added.

April 2022

The Sewing Down South creator dished to that Paige would be joining him in Charleston during May and June to help him throughout his home renovation era. "I'm having a ton of stuff done to my house, and she's definitely got an input on all those new changes, which really excites me," he noted. "I'm getting it ready to live with a partner."

Oh, and he also expressed how he was "excited to move in together eventually. That's definitely the direction we're headed." S'cute!

That same month, the two attended Craig's Southern Charm costar Dustin Johnson's wedding to Paulina Grettsky, and, per usual, the snaps were *chef's kiss*.

May 2022

During an appearance on Behind the Velvet Rope with Davi Yontef, Craig cautioned fans that they shouldn’t get their hopes up for an onscreen proposal from him and Paige (😭😭😭).

"I think if you guys ever saw it, the answer would be 'No' from Paige. We do a good job of keeping…some of our milestones outside of the camera's reach," he said before adding, "You won’t see a proposal until we’re at least together for a year."

June 2022

During an interview with Page Six, the entrepreneur revealed what it was like being in a long-distance relationship. "You know, long-distance is working for us," he began. "We're fortunate that we're on the East Coast, so it's only an hour flight, but it is getting harder and harder."

"She was just gone for 10 days in Italy, and that was tough. But we're starting to see the amount of time that we're spending chisel away to only a couple of days. So, you know, we'll see," Craig added.

July 2022

Paige hilariously revealed, "If people mutually hate us, it kind of brings us together" to E! News and, on a sweeter note, said she feels "lucky" to be dating a man who understands what it’s like to appear on reality TV. "I'm like, 'Everybody hates us.' And he's like, 'Whatever, I love you.'"

August 23, 2022

Craig talked his dream wedding with E! News—and shared why his vision miiiiight not align with his girlfriend's.

"Paige's vision is completely different than mine," he began before noting, "The reason I ended up moving to the Bahamas for that year or two was because of a wedding I went to in Abaco and when you got to the wedding, everyone was barefoot…It was just so laid back and everyone spent a week there."

"I want to have a big welcome crab feast when everyone gets there, and then I want to have the rehearsal dinner on Thursday, a party Friday and the wedding Saturday and a brunch Sunday...But you know, I am just a boy that has never really looked into all of this," he added.

On the other hand, Paige apparently "doesn't want a beach wedding" and "I think her vision is somewhere in Italy," Craig admitted. Honestly? She might be on to something!!!

October 14, 2022

Paige joked about how her costars Carl Radke and Lindsay Hubbard getting engaged "made everyone start asking me [about my own], so I’m livid" during BravoCon’s "Summer House in Autumn" panel.

That! Said!!! "I am not in a rush to do anything," she maintained. "I feel like I really love where we are right now," she added, noting she recently gave the Southern Charm star "closet space" in her apartment, which she called a "really big milestone."

Separately, at the "Modern Love" panel, Craig shared that he'd propose to his girlfriend "whenever [she's] ready to say 'yes.'" "I have a feeling that we're going to end up getting married one day," he confessed. "It'll be great. I don't know if she knows that. I think you'll get to see it actually come out on one of the shows."

As for their biggest obstacle? The distance, which fair!

"The thought of leaving and going to a new state is a lot for me, so I have to do it when I'm ready," said Paige.

February 16, 2023

Paige spoke about how she and Craig make their 'ship work despite living in different states during a convo with People.

"Long distance is definitely not an easy thing to do, but I will say, I think Craig and I handle it very well," she revealed. "Obviously, we will argue about certain things, but I love being with my friends during the summer. I love living in New York. I love going to the Hamptons on the weekends. He's very supportive of that."

The reality star also noted that she didn't intend on moving to Charleston anytime soon, but (!!!) that she and the fellow Bravo star have discussed living together: "I really do love my life the way it is. And we talk about what will happen in the future."

July 11, 2023

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, The Real Housewives of New York alum Sonja Morgan implied she'd been, ahem, intimate with Craig. Like, the way it was legit phrased was that the two "had a little tête-à-tête."

In true form, Paige addressed the allegation in the most Paige way possible by commenting "No I’m peeeeing my pants" in the comments section of the above vid. I-con-ic!!!

November 1, 2023

While at BravoCon, Craig spoke with People and talked about his and Paige's future together.

"It's funny how things evolve and change," he began. "I think there was so much pressure from the outside world. I love what we have now. My home base is Charleston and hers is New York, but if it was a Venn diagram, we cross over. We're always together, we're just in one place and the other."

"I think I've settled into a more sustainable flow of this is what works for us and let's just enjoy it instead of rushing into the next step," he added.

And speaking of the next step...👀

December 2023

The Giggly Squad cohost revealed to Elite Daily that she and Craig considered getting married during BravoCon weekend in Las Vegas. "I said, ‘Let’s go do it in a chapel,’" she recalled of the November trip. "Craig chickened out, though."

"I’m not going to get married in Vegas. I want something more real than that," the Sewing Down South founder retorted, to which Paige joked, "What’s more real than me, you, and Elvis, honey?" Gonna have to agree with Paige on this one, tbh. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

February 2024

Craig showed his ❤️ for Paige with a sweet Insta tribute in honor of Valentine's Day. "Life is this. I like this," he penned alongside a montage of moments with his girlfriend set to Anella Herim’s "Tennessee Love Song."

"CRAIG I’M ALIVE I DIDN’T DIE," the Summer House star hilariously commented before adding, "I take a nap for two hours and this is what happens on the internet" and three pink hearts. To say we're obsessed is a serious understatement lol.

Aaaaaand that's pretty much all we know for now! But definitely make sure to check back in for any and all updates on our fave Bravolebrity couple ever. ❤️
