Though her This Is Us character Kate Pearson is all about Toby Toby Toby, in real life Chrissy Metz is all about her boyfriend Josh Stancil, who she finally introduced to the rest of the world this past weekend via their red carpet debut.
Metz and Stancil, a cameraman on This Is Us, stepped out publicly as a duo for the very first time at Entertainment Weekly‘s SAG Awards weekend bash on Saturday, January 28th. She looked gorgeous in a shiny, floor-length, patterned gown, while Stancil kept it simple in a gray and black suit.
We ship it, tbh.
Fierce. As. Hell.
Metz previously told People back in October that her relationship with Stancil was “a private thing,” adding that she was “excited to go to red carpets” with him but “just going to see what happens” before making that leap.
She also said their relationship was “just organic,” and that it wasn’t like men started beating down her door the second she became famous.
“I’m grateful for that because I know it’s difficult to be dating and in the spotlight and having things change,” Metz explained.
She’s also quick to remind fans that, much like her This Is Us character — who now has two dudes on her tail — being a plus-size woman has never excluded her from the dating scene.
Because, you know. DUH.
“No matter what size I’ve been, I’ve never had issues dating,” she said. “I’ve found really wonderful men, and I do believe that like attracts like. It’s one of those things where if you’re secure and you’re happy mostly, you find really wonderful people who come into your life.”
We’re so glad that Stancil seems to be one such “wonderful people,” even if we keep accidentally writing his name down as “Stencil” then having to go back and change it.
