This? Oh, Just Ben Platt and Noah Galvin's Totally Sweet Relationship Timeline

After doing *tons* of research (read: Insta stalking), I’ve officially chosen a favorite celeb couple. Enter: Ben Platt and Noah Galvin. These two had been friends for years until living together amid the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in them bonding and eventually dating. Fast-forward to almost three years later, and after plenty of sweet Insta pics, gushing interviews, and red carpet appearances, Ben and Noah are officially engaged!

Below, find everything you need to know about the duo’s relationship, including when they actually first met and the moment they went from dating to becoming fiancés.

When speaking with Kelly Clarkson after he and Noah became official, Ben shared a bit more about how their romantic relationship began to flourish: “We’d been friends for like five years,” he explained. “Then it was like 0 to 60, like we’re living together with my parents in our childhood home and seeing each other all the time, but it ended up being a beautiful time.”

April 23, 2021: Ben releases his song “Imagine,” which was inspired by Noah

Things we know about Ben Platt: (1) He’s a phenomenal singer, and (2) He culls major inspo from his romance with Noah. “We’ve all spent this past year and change holed up in our homes, having to create fantasies for ourselves,” he told Rolling Stone when discussing his newest song, “Imagine.”

“For ‘Imagine,’ both the song and video, I was very inspired by the way that our loved ones, the people that make life worth living, can turn the mundanity of suburbia into something magical and fantastical. Everyone has that person or people that make their world technicolor, fueling us with a love that can feel supernatural. The video is that feeling of cloud nine. For me, when I sing the song, it’s for my boyfriend Noah.”

September 22, 2021: Noah supports Ben at the Dear Evan Hansen premiere

Noah proved to be *the* supportive BF at the L.A. premiere of the Dear Evan Hansen movie, in which Ben played the lead. The two were spotted holding hands and staring into each other’s eyes on the blue carpet, and I’ve never added a pic to my vision/manifestation board so quickly 😭😭😭.
