Olivia Dunne has made her new boyfriend Paul Skenes public for the first time after they attended a college football game on Saturday, when LSU faced the Arkansas Razorbacks.
Olivia, 20, revealed photos of her gameday costume on Instagram, sending her followers into a frenzy as she flaunted her physique in a yellow bodycon dress and white cowboy boots. She captioned the photo, “Happy game day, tigah fans.” She was later joined in the stands by Paul as they watched the game, with him posting photos of their date to his social media pages.
Paul is a rising sports star, having been selected first overall by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 2023 MLB Draft. Olivia reacted with a yellow heart emoji and the words “my heart” alongside the photographs he shared of the couple enjoying their day date.
On that day, Paul had reason to be happy when LSU defeated Arkansas 34-31 in Baton Rouge, with Jayden Daniels passing for 302 yards and four touchdowns. Paul acknowledged his connection with Olivia in August, when he requested fans to respect her personal space when she attends his games.
He opened up about their romance in an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. He said: “It’s nice, for sure. It can be a pain in the butt sometimes, to be honest, in terms of actually going somewhere. If one of us went out in Baton Rouge by ourselves, there’s probably gonna be someone there asking for something – picture, autograph, whatever.
“It’s nice to be able to have that conversation. She does get it. I do wish she could come to a baseball game and just enjoy it. It does irk me. I don’t have any control over it. She really doesn’t either. I’m sure it’ll get better as I go up levels, but that’s something I want for her.”
Gymnast Olivia, on the other hand, has been unable to attend her classes at LSU in person due to her celebrity levels. “There have been some scares in the past, and I just want to be as cautious as possible,” she told Elle in July. I don’t want others to know about my daily routine or where I am.”
After being selected first overall in the MLB Draft, Paul signed a record $9.2 million contract with the Pirates. Olivia, on the other hand, is already worth an estimated $2.3 million as a result of endorsement deals. She has also appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
