Phoebe Tonkin is officially no longer single. The Aussie actress recently made it officially known that she is off the singles train after she posted a photo that was taken while she kissed her new beau, Alex Greenwald.
The Vampire Diaries and Originals actress posted the photo on her Instagram on Monday, and she wrote the caption “Wear your mask,” next to a black emoji heart. She seemed to be kissing her new catch through their face masks with the coronavirus making facemasks a necessity these days.
Fans quickly reacted with excitement in the comment section under the photo. This is the first time that Phoebe has officially dated or officially made it public since her breakup with Paul Wesley, who also happens to be a former co-star on Vampire Diaries. The two dated for four years before eventually breaking up in 2017.
It is not clear when she started dating Alex, who is the lead singer for an American band called Phantom Planet. They may have started dating a few months ago, and Greenwald may have even hinted through a previous social media post. He posted a photo of Tonkin wearing a Phanton Planet-branded T-shirt on April 4. Interestingly, she was only clad in a t-shirt and some underwear in the photo.
“The new @phantomplanet shirt comes with the girl. Please, please buy a shirt, it’s been 21 days. I need her out of my house,” Greenwald captioned the photo.
This is also not the first time that Alex is dating a high-profile actress. He was previously in a relationship with Brie Larson, famous for her role as Captain Marvel in the film under the same name from Marvel Studios. Alex and Brie, however, called it quit in January 2019.
Well, it looks like Greenwald has moved on and is now happily dating the Originals star. Phoebe revealed in a recent interview that she has set her mind to do things that she loves to do the most ever since she turned 30. She also added that she has been more confident in herself and her passions than ever before.
