The happy couple looked very pleased to see each other and it appears, although she lives in Madrid and he in New York, the relationship seems to be getting stronger. Speaking to our sister publication HOLA! Alejandra said, “I always thought long-distance relationships were complicated, but actually, with all the technology that we have, it’s a lot easier.”

So far the pair have been very secretive about their relationship. Despite going out for over 12 months, their relationship status was only revealed in June during the 61st Annual Taormina Film Festival in Italy.
