Life is imitating art. Chase Stokes, who plays John B on the Netflix series Outer Banks has shared the news that he is dating his co-star and girlfriend on the show, Madelyn Cline.
In an Instagram post, Chase shared a photo of both his and Madelyn’s legs on a beach picnic, followed by a photo of Madelyn grabbing a bottle of wine.
“cats outta the bag ❤️,” he wrote with the photo.
Madelyn took to the comments section to add her confirmation. “I’ve fallen and I cant get up,” she wrote.
Actor Charles Esten, who plays Madelyn’s dad, Ward Cameron, in the series, commented on the news. “This is awesome! ❤️😊✨ Whaddya’ say we celebrate with another fishing trip?,” he wrote.
For those who are unfamiliar with the show, (Spoiler) Charles’ character, Ward, invites Chase’s character, John B, on a fishing trip after he learns he’s dating his daughter Sarah (Madelyn Cline) and ends up trying to kill him. Oops.
Co-star Jonathon Davis, who plays Pope on Outer Banks wrote,”Well it’s about time ❤️❤️❤️.”
In an Instagram live, Chase revealed how he went about the decision to make the relationship Instagram official.
“I was like, ‘I think I’m gonna post it,’” Chase said telling his mother. “She was like, ‘Really? You understand what happens when you do that?’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah. I do, Mom. Sure do.’ Then I texted Maddie and I said, ‘What do you think?’ And she said, ‘I don’t care.’”
“OK, but clarification,” Maddie jumped in. “I thought he meant posting it at some point in the future. He didn’t clarify what time. … So I didn’t know, and all of a sudden,[names not audible] both get texts and he says, ‘Oopsie.’ And there it was. Modern romance.”
The couple has been quarantining together through he coronavirus pandemic, sparking rumors earlier this year that they were together. And there it is, not only are the two actors dating on the show, they are officially a couple in real life and on Instagram.
Ain’t love grand.
