Simone and Brian are madly in love and have shared several pictures of each other on social media

Just last month the model described him as the most exciting part of her life.

“From the moment I met you I knew my life would be a lot more fun. I didn’t quite realize just how fun life would be, how often in a day I’d laugh like a dinosaur, how easy it was to be myself and feel completely loved for it, what it truly meant to love someone so much that all you want is for them to be happy in life, even if that life didn’t include you.

“Well, Brian – I hope I never have to know what it’s like to not be included in your life because you are the most exciting part of mine,” she wrote.
