The Grown-ish actress and her cinematographer bae went public with their relationship the day after Christmas by posting an adorable picture on Instagram

“Happy Holidays,” FR captioned the cute shot.

E! News reports that the couple actually started dating a couple months ago, and were introduced by Grown-ish co-star Yara Shahidi.

“She is very happy with him,” a source said.

Chris and Francia spent the holiday in his hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana, and braved the cold weather as best as they could.

So cute!! We’re so happy that both Selena and Francia are happy and in love, especially after all they went through over the summer. The 25-year-old’s mom summed up the experience pretty well.

“As a mother I was helpless, scared and all I could do was pray for both of them, Francia’s beautiful family,” Mandy Teefey wrote on Instagram back in September. “I am pretty sure I am banned from that hospital. Mama Bear was in high gear. Selena gained a kidney, I was able to keep my little girl, but I also gained another daughter…thank you to everyone who was there for Sel, Francia and our families. We survived from all the love, prayers and God.”
