“Big Brother” winner Taylor Hale and her BF Joseph Abdin have celebrated a significant milestone as a couple.
The duo caught the attention of viewers when they met and easily connected during the early days of the long-running American reality series. And although they did not become romantically involved within the house, they did spend quality time with each other, quickly becoming fan favorites. Months later, the couple has given fans something to fawn over as they marked the 30-day anniversary of their romance.
Taylor Hale & Joseph Abdin Pose Sexily For Their Anniversary Shots
Even though Abdin got booted off the reality show in August and Hale became the first African American female to win it, the spark between them could not be contained when they reconnected on finale night.
The pair has continued to grow strong, opting to mark the first month of their relationship with a few spicy images that featured a shirtless Abdin. The Florida native, however, coordinated his bottoms to match Hale’s blue denim shorts, which she paired with a white tank top.
From striding her man with a big grin on her face to holding him in an intimate embrace, the 27-year-old seemed content with her new beau. In fact, she gushed to US Weekly:
“Being in a long-distance relationship with Joseph barely even feels like there’s any distance at all.”
Also talking to the outlet was Hale’s boyfriend, who chimed, “I can’t believe it’s been nearly three months since being out of the Big Brother house, and December 1 marked our one-month anniversary.”
The attorney further expressed his excitement about his girlfriend’s upcoming birthday and the New Year, noting, “Time is flying, and I am so grateful to have her by my side. It feels like yesterday when I asked her to be mine.”
Since the CBS series ended, Abdin and his partner have indulged in certain activities together, including journeying down to Reno, Nevada, where they attended the Miss USA pageant and cemented family ties, with the law graduate meeting his girlfriend’s mother.
Abdin claimed that introducing each other to their families has been a “joy,” a sentiment that his partner shares. For her, sharing their “home lives with each other has reaffirmed what I believed when he asked me to be his girlfriend.”
Another thing that their continued love affair has done for Hale is having her emphasize her man’s sexiness. The Blast shared that she shed light on her love for Abdin’s body with a gorgeous picture of him backing an ocean.
The 25-year-old’s perfectly toned abs are on full display underneath the robe that he left open. The “BB24” alum stared intensely into the camera for the pic that his bae captioned, “Good Morning [sun emoji]. Listen, @people, we need to reevaluate your sexiest man decision.”
Hale soon found out that her followers and fans had been waiting for an opportunity to gush over her man, with most of them commenting, “agreed,” “preach,” “no lies,” and “girl yes.” One fan jokingly wrote, “I agree! i was waiting for you to say it, so i didn’t have to,” and a second added, “yes, with all the s = sexy, supportive, sensational, suave, sweet, strong, and sincere.” The model has since taken down the post.
The Lovebirds Knew What They Wanted When They Locked Lips
When it was time to break the news of their relationship to the public, Hale opened up about the exact moment she knew their connection was real. Per The Blast, the former pageant queen recalled:
“My connection with Joseph has been undeniable, and I knew from the moment he kissed me on finale night that we’d find a way to be together. His heart is bigger than the galaxy, and now we have the privilege of sharing our hearts with each other. I love him so much – I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.”
Abdin, who was not far from her during the confession, added that he knew she was “something special” from the moment he laid eyes on her. Despite that instant feeling, they decided to take things slow, waiting until the competition was over.
Hale and Abdin’s subsequent romance made fans so happy that they now refer to them as the “hottest Big Brother couple.”
