R5 fans suspected for quite some time that something was going on between band members Rydel Lynch and Ellington Ratliff but it wasn't until the band released their documentary, All Day All Night, that the twosome confirmed they are indeed dating. In a new interview, the couple opened up about how they exactly got together and it's all thanks to some patience, and fate.
"I have had a crush on him since the beginning. He needed time to realize, but I’ve pretty much liked him for eight years now and was just being patient," Rydel said. "It was full-force. I was like, 'I like him, and that’s it.'"
Although she always had a feeling they would go from best friends to a couple, Ellington on the other hand wasn't so sure at first. But he eventually came around and the rest is history.
“I never really thought I would ever date Rydel. I thought we would always have this thing between us, but I couldn’t deny it. It was unstoppable. It just took me and I had no choice – nothing else mattered,” he said. “It was just like this relationship is going to happen whether I like it or not, or whether she likes it or not. Whoever decides that, whatever that is, it’s just going to happen. We had no choice. It was a volcano that had to erupt.”
Umm excuse us while sob over how cute that is. The universe was just pulling these two together and now, it's been a little more than two years they've been in love and we are just overwhelmed with feels right now.
