Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have known each other for more than five years and first started setting off dating alarms last year. We've seen them appear to grow closer together during quarantine this year, when they performed a livestream concert and talked about their favorite Harry Potter characters.

They seem to be such a lovely, cozy couple, but like any pair, they've had to do a lot of hard work. During an interview with, Mendes shared how getting emotional for his music helped his relationship.

"I thought that I was a pretty open, emotional, guy until I started being in a relationship with someone that I really, truly love and, realizing that, 'Oh no, I really have this big ego, and I don't want to show her that I'm hurting and I don't want to show her that that offended me, and like I want to be the man, and I want to be strong in this relationship,'" he said. "It actually was hurting our relationship."

He added that Cabello was a big supporter of his new single "Wonder."

"She really was a champion for this album," he said. "I remember back when I first started a lot of the concepts and they felt a little bit intimidating. She was like, 'Go, keep going, keep going.' And she would do this thing like once a month, 'Hey, just a reminder, this concept you're on is incredible. It's going to make people feel something really special. Don't stop. Don't stop. Don't stop.'"

Someone cue "Señorita," because we all need a reason to smile.
