Trevor Noah never really used his screen time on The Daily Show to talk about his romantic entanglements, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t dating in between his funny political deep dives.

Throughout the history of his career, Noah has been very private about his romantic life, often choosing instead to talk about his family and his upbringing, like in his bestselling 2016 memoir Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood. However, he has dated a few public figures, including Minka Kelly and (allegedly) Dua Lipa.

Now, fans have started to speculate that Noah might be in a secret relationship with influencer and business expert Zoë Leila Mabie. In fact, the two have even been spotted hanging out since the new year began. Here’s everything we know about her.


Zoë is a fashion influencer and works in business

If you were to take one look at Zoë Leila Mabie’s Instagram, you’d see a grid full of stylish photos that show Mabie in textured two pieces, sleeveless high neck dresses, bandana tops, and so much more. The businesswoman has great taste, and her account is a feast of looks.

But Mabie’s main grind is working for Meta, as noted in her Instagram bio, which reads: “Woman in tech @meta.” Her LinkedIn account reveals that she is a Business Lead at Meta Africa: Global Business Group, where she specializes in cross-function coordination, project management and business strategy.

Mabie has had this gig since 2019, according to a tweet she made in 2020, which said, “Started my journey with one of the biggest tech giants in the world - Facebook Inc - a year ago. Here’s a snippet of the journey #levelup #bossbabe.”

She’s getting her MBA

While it’s clear Mabie is already thriving in the world of tech, she’s currently in the process of earning her MBA, a fact which is also noted in her Instagram bio.

Mabie is an MBA candidate at Warwick Business School at the The University of Warwick, a public research university on the outskirts of Coventry in England.

Per her LinkedIn, she previously received degrees from the Red & Yellow Creative School of Business, the University of Cape Town, and the Vega School of Brand Leadership. She celebrated her plethora of degrees with an Instagram post back in 2016, which read, “Just outcheah collecting degrees 😋 #graduation #honours #anotherone #round3.”

Oh, and she can ride horses

As if she wasn’t impressive enough, Mabie also has been riding horses for years, documenting her love for the equestrian sport on her social media.

Early in January, Mabie shared a special message to her Instagram, where she detailed her love of riding. “The stables are - in many ways - a sacred place,” she wrote. “Saddling up a horse is ceremonious. Through preparing the horse, we both begin to understand that, with the rhythm of each stride, we will soon become one motion. Where we honour and respect one another in one of the best states of flow there is - riding! I’m looking forward to another year in the saddle!”

She’s a Cannes winner?!

Okay, it’s not that kind of Cannes award.

On Instagram, Mabie’s bio notes that she’s a Cannes & Loeries Award winner, but she didn’t get the Cannes prize that we’ve come to associate with the Cannes Film Festival. Instead, the influencer won a Cannes Lions Social & Influencer Award. This prize, as well as the Loerie Award, honors achievements in the brand communications industry.

She met Trevor through mutual friends

Like Noah, Mabie is from South Africa, and it’s likely that the pair met through mutual friends. According to The South African, the business guru has been longtime pals with Khaya Dlanga and Xolisa Dyeshana, who both happen to be good friends of Noah’s as well.

In fact, Dyeshana shared a photo in early January that featured both Noah and Mabie (and Noah is even seen putting his hand on Mabie’s shoulder).

To add fuel to the fire, Mabie shared her own video to Instagram, which was a recap of the friendcation. In one of the videos, Noah is seen sitting at a table where the group is enjoying a meal. Mabie captioned her video, “We love summer!”
