JoJo Siwa finally revealed who her secret boyfriend is

National Girlfriend Day only rolls around once a year, and JoJo Siwa sure made it count.

People have long speculated about the 17-year-old performer’s love life. For the first time ever, she confirmed she’s dating someone — Mark Bontempo, the little brother of social media influencer Madison Bontempo.

In honor of National Girlfriend Day, Siwa posted a TikTok with the caption “Meet Mark :)” in which she and Bontempo imitated each other and lip-synced to “Famous (I’m the One)” by Mozzy and IAMSU!.

He even wore her signature rainbow outfit and massive bow, so you can tell he’s a keeper.

Over on Bontempo’s TikTok account, he addressed the rumors himself by dueting a gossip channel video that claimed Siwa has a boyfriend. In his response, he smiled and revealed Siwa was right next to him in the frame.

“If it’s not me you have some explaining to do,” he wrote in his caption.

Siwa’s fans were thrilled with the news.

“We all sound like moms in this comment section I can’t,” one wrote. “‘So this is the boy huh?”


For a while, fans believed that Siwa was dating Elliot Brown, but she said they’re just good friends.

She hinted at her current relationship in a June interview with Seventeen, and also confirmed that they have been seeing each other since May.

“Honestly he’s a dream. Really, truly unreal and I’m so happy,” she said.

Siwa and Bontempo didn’t reveal how they met or why they decided to reveal their relationship right now, but we’re certain there are more adorable TikToks in their future.
