Though Thursday marked Rebels and Ramona’s official debut as a couple, the two have actually been spotted together several times in recent months — even making a joint appearance on the red carpet at Vanity Fair’s Oscars party in March.

Aside from her coming out post, Rebel hasn’t shared any other details about her friend, who is an LA-based fashion designer and owner of sustainable fashion brand Lemon Ve Limon.

The actress revealed last month that she was dating someone, despite keeping their identity a secret, and told People that she had been set up with her partner – believed to be Agruma – “through a friend” before spending weeks getting to know each other each other on the phone.

Rebel’s most recent confirmed partner was Jacob Busch of the Anheuser-Busch family of brewers.

She and the heir started dating just before the start of the coronavirus pandemic and they made their red carpet debut in Monaco, but the relationship only lasted four months, ending around February 2021.

Earlier this year, the comics star was rumored to be dating Australian tennis player Matt Reid, although that relationship has never been confirmed.

Late last year, Rebel revealed that her “year of health” was fueled in part because she was “thinking about fertility.”

“I knew I would have a little more time,” she said of her weight-loss efforts in a December 2021 Instagram Live session. “I also froze my eggs because — as all good career women out there should point out — If that interests you, now is a pretty good time.”

“I was thinking about fertility and high-quality eggs in the bank, so I was like, ‘Okay, I’m going to do that. I’ll get well,'” she continued. “And how I started is [that] I went to a professional place to do a detox.
