Back in the boot!
It’s now official that Paul Skenes and Olivia Dunne are in a serious romantic relationship. Congrats to them!
It was a Tigers date night for Olivia Dunne and her boyfriend, former LSU pitcher Paul Skenes.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday, Skenes — who was selected first overall by the Pirates in the 2023 MLB Draft — posted a cozy photo of himself and Dunne as the couple took in LSU’s 34-31 win over Arkansas in Baton Rouge.
“Back in the boot!” Skenes captioned the snap, in what is believed to be the first time he and Dunne have been pictured together.
Dunne, who just started her senior year at LSU, replied: “My [heart].”
Prior to kickoff, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, 20, shared a game-day selfie with her 4.4 million Instagram followers.
“Happy game day tigah fans,” Dunne wrote over her photo as she rocked a yellow mini dress and white cowboy boots.
Skenes’ post with Dunne comes a month after he confirmed the two are an item
In an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Skenes spoke about how the pair have grown closer as the glare of the spotlight intensifies.
“It can be a pain in the butt sometimes, to be honest, in terms of actually going somewhere. If one of us went out in Baton Rouge [La.] by ourselves, there’s probably gonna be someone there asking for something — picture, autograph, whatever,” Skenes said.
“It’s nice to be able to have that conversation. She does get it. I do wish she could come to a baseball game and just enjoy it. It does irk me. I don’t have any control over it. She really doesn’t either. I’m sure it’ll get better as I go up levels, but that’s something I want for her.”
Dunne is regarded as the NCAA’s highest-earning female athlete with an NIL valuation of $3.2 million, according to On3 Sports.
As for Skenes, the 21-year-old pitcher was promoted to the Pirates’ Double-A affiliate, Altoona Curve, in August.
He hit 101 mph in his minor league debut.
He was transferred to the Development List earlier this month, ending his first season.
Olivia Dunne and Paul Skenes seem to be a perfect couple and I hope it won’t end up on the rocks as it happens in celebrity relationships.
