Being A Supportive Girlfriend

Earlier this year, Dunne attended Paul Skenes' debut in Pittsburgh. She confessed that watching him pitch made her more nervous than performing her own gymnastics routines.

"I had some nerves creeping in at first, but I kind of channeled that into excitement more than nerves," Dunne revealed during the game. "I just have the most confidence in him ever, so I trust in him and what he's put in, and I'm just so excited."

With Sunday's loss to the Rays, the Pirates' record fell to 37-40. Despite this setback, Pittsburgh remains a strong contender in the National League Wild Card race.

How It All Started

Dunne and Skenes were introduced through mutual friends. In an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the MLB star revealed that their connection was a stroke of serendipity: his roommate and close friend at LSU was dating Dunne's roommate, making for a small-world connection.

As their relationship developed, rumors started to swirl. By August 2023, Dunne appeared to confirm their relationship status when she responded to a social media post from a hairstylist discussing their potential romance.

Skenes didn't hold back either, opting not to invoke the 5th Amendment as he openly discussed the challenges of living a public life due to 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."
