Michael B. Jordan has opened up about his ongoing relationship with Lori Harvey.
During his interview with People Magazine on Wednesday, the 34-year-old actor, who isn’t usually as public with his love life, revealed that he is “extremely happy” with his 24-year-old partner.
“I’m still private, and I want to protect that, but it just felt like it was a moment of just wanting to put it out there and move on,” the actor shared.
“I am extremely happy… I think when you get older, you feel more comfortable about the [public nature] of the business that we’re in. So for me, it was a moment to, I guess, take ownership of that and then get back to work.”
Michael B. Jordan and Lori Harvey were first spotted together in Atlanta during Thanksgiving, and later in Utah around Christmas time as they went skiing. After confirming their relationship on Instagram back in January with a string of couple photos, the pair then took a vacation to the Caribbean.
“They have gotten serious quickly,” a source told PEOPLE. “It’s obvious that they don’t want to be apart.”
Back in March, Lori’s stepfather Steve Harvey appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to share his thoughts on his step-daughter’s new boyfriend. He said jokingly that while he tries his best to get rid of the men who enter his daughter’s life, he couldn’t help but like Michael.
