Maya Jama goes Instagram official with Ben Simmons

·1 min read

After Maya Jama and Ben Simmons revealed they were A Thing™ at Wimbledon, the pair just went Instagram official.

Looks like there's a cool new couple on the block. The TV presenter and basketball player have been linked for years, but only took things public at the beginning of July. Back in 2019, a source told The Sun, "Maya has not long been single, so she and Ben are taking time to get to know each other and see if there’s a real spark."

Relationship rumours then resurfaced in June when they were spotted leaving a London restaurant minutes apart, before confirming speculation with a kiss on Centre Court.

Now, three weeks later, Maya, 26, just made things Instagram official. To celebrate Ben's 25th birthday, Maya shared a photo booth style photo to her Stories. "Happy birthday to youuu," she wrote before tagging the basketball player.

Ben previously dated Kendall Jenner, before the pair split back in May 2019, with a source saying at the time the relationship had "ran its course". Ben and Maya were linked later that year, with the NBA player commenting fire emojis under one of her posts.

It's thought that Maya flew out to Philadelphia to visit Ben in May of this year, with a source telling The Mirror at the time, "Things are hotting up for Maya and Ben. They are really into each other and the fact she flew to Philadelphia to be with him says a lot. They had a fun two weeks together. It’s nice to see her so happy."
