When it comes to romance, celebrities do not like to hang about. Case in point: Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz, who ~ after dating for nine months ~ announced their engagement back in July 2021. Revealing the happy news, Brooklyn said he's "the luckiest man in the world", while Nicola said she can’t "wait to spend the rest of my life by your side". Here's a look back at Brooklyn and Nicola's speedy and steamy history, starting with the most recent update:

24th May 2022 - Nicola reveals when she first met Brooklyn Beckham, they didn't immediately click. Talking to Vogue magazine she explained the pair first met at Coachella festival in April 2017, almost three years before they started dating.

"We didn't get along at first," Nicola commented, though she didn't expand on why. The 27-year-old actor then share some more details about their wedding, explaining they wanted a big bash as soon as it was safe to, post-pandemic.

"When the world was in lockdown, we went through different variations of what a wedding would look like," she said.

"We weren’t sure if we should do a small one earlier and then a big party. Eventually, we decided we wanted the big wedding as soon as it was possible to do it safely. And we’re so happy we did. It was amazing to be in the presence of so many people we love again."

OK, safe to say these two are fairly big fans of a bit of PDA. We've seen them sharing some pretty loved-up selfies before, and their latest offering is no exception.

After appearing with Brooklyn on the Met Gala red carpet (and looking amazing, BTW), Nicola took to Instagram to share some intimate behind the scenes footage, posting a video of the pair kissing - and, yep, it's very close up.

Nicola goes on to talk to the camera while she puts her arm around Brooklyn's shoulder, with the young Beckham staying smiling at her the whole time. Aw, you guys.

Fans were quick to notice how in love the couple look in the post, which Nicola captioned "a beautiful night 💕", with one commenting, "Love the way he looks at her". So cute!

Nicola followed up with a second post from the Met Gala, sharing a series of pictures of the couple on the red carpet, including a shot of Brooklyn carrying the train of Nicola's dress for her. Brooklyn was quick with the virtual PDA once again, adding the comment, "My everything ❤️❤️".

This isn't the first time Brooklyn has made a heartfelt inked tribute to Gina. Two years ago, he got Gina's name tattooed on his arm just after her death in January 2020, with Nicola calling the tattoo the "best birthday gift".

How lovely.

While Nicola's birthday comes at an understandably difficult time for her family, Brooklyn made sure to post an adorable birthday message for his fiancée.

Sharing a series of love-up couple snaps on Instagram, he wrote, "Happy birthday to the most gorgeous woman in the world x I am the luckiest person in the world to be able to call you mine x I fall more in love with you every single day and I can not wait to grow old with you ❤️❤️ I hope you have the BEST birthday xx I love you with all my heart xx."
