How Did Olivia Dunne And Paul Skenes Meet?

Dunne and Skenes, also 21, were brought together through mutual connections. According to an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the MLB star shared that their introduction was serendipitous: his roommate, who was also his close friend at LSU, happened to be dating the gymnast's roommate, creating a small-world connection.

As their relationship blossomed, rumors began circulating, and by August 2023, Dunne seemingly confirmed their status when she responded to a social media post from a hairstylist discussing their potential relationship.

Going Out In Public

Skenes didn't hold back either, choosing not to invoke the 5th Amendment as he openly expressed the challenges of living a somewhat public life because of their careers.

“It can be a pain in the butt sometimes, to be honest, in terms of actually going somewhere,” he confessed.

Skenes continued, "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."

"I have so many amazing memories with him, but I know how hard he’s worked for this moment," the gymnast said. "All the hours, I just know what a hard worker he is. This is probably one of my favorite moments I've ever seen. Seriously, there is nothing that can top this. I’m just so proud."
