Matthew Lawrence and Rozanda "Chilli" Thomas have officially validated their relationship status. In December, the couple took to Instagram to announce their partnership, all while dancing to "Take On Me" in matching PJs. The former TLC singer shared a reflective message with her post, "God had perfect timing. Never early and never late. It takes a little patience and a lot of faith." Since then, the duo has kept their relationship quiet. But, the Boy Meets World star still can't help but gush about his new romance.

In a recent interview, Lawrence reflected on his relationship with Chilli, calling her "one of the most spectacular people" he has ever met. "We like to try to keep things private — that was just something fun, but I will tell you: we have a podcast coming out. That's the kind of stuff that we talk about on the podcast," the 43-year-old said.

Matthew Lawrence And Chilli Share Their Love On Insta

Lawrence is entering his new relationship after exiting a three-year marriage with Cheryl Burke last year. The two had originally pursued a relationship in 2007, only to revisit their love a decade later. The Dancing With The Stars pro claimed that Lawrence had cheated on her. She received the official news of their divorce while on set for the premier of the show, which she recounted in her podcast Burke in the Game. Although their divorce was finalized, one trial remains over the custody of their dog. “I am still really hurt by the whole situation because that is my dog," she explains. "Ysabella is my daughter; I am a dog mom, I couldn’t even imagine my life without her. I could just cry right now.”

As for Chilli, her previous relationships have also been private in recent years. However, she had dated music producer Dallas Austin, who is the father of her son. The 51-year-old also was in a relationship with Usher, who she eventually broke up with due to infidelity. Now, she shares her heart with Lawrence, and we're sure that more details will come about their relationship in their upcoming podcast.
