The couple was first romantically linked back in February 2020, when Apa posted a photo of them sharing a sweet smooch on Instagram. “Coup de foudre (Love at first sight),” read the caption.

The CW star then followed through in August 2020 with a series of photos featuring a nude Berry in an undisclosed vacation venue. 

“There’s nowhere else,” wrote Apa under snaps of a bare-naked Berry posing in front of a picturesque cliff at sunset.
