Phoebe Bridgers has shared a loved-up snap with her boyfriend Paul Mescal as she celebrates the New Year.

The American singer (27) spent Christmas in Ireland with her actor beau (25), who rose to fame in 2020 after starring in the TV adaptation of Normal People, and the pair were spotted out and about in Dublin over the holidays by delighted fans.

Taking to Instagram on New Year’s Day, Phoebe shared a series of photos from the past year, from partying with rapper and singer Doja Cat to meeting English singer Florence Welch at the LACMA Art + Film Gala.

But the snap that caught everybody’s attention was a sweet photo of Paul holding Phoebe in his arms on a balcony at the BAFTA Awards, with the couple giggling and looking happier than ever.

Phoebe simply captioned the post: “bye.”

Bridgerton and Derry Girls star Nicola Coughlan commented under the post as she reminisced about the night of the awards ceremony, saying: “Having 8,000 cocktails on that balcony was one of my best memories of 2021 tbh.”

Kildare native Paul was first linked to his Grammy-nominated girlfriend in the summer months of 2020, when they were spotted grabbing brunch together at a café in Kinsale, Co. Cork.

While they were rumoured to be dating, Paul appeared in the music video for Phoebe’s song ‘Savior Complex’, which was directed by Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

The video was shared on Phoebe’s official Facebook page, just days after Paul finally revealed that he had a girlfriend.

After making their red carpet debut together in November, the pair officially confirmed their relationship in December with an Instagram post.
