Matthew Lawrence and TLC's Chilli wore matching outfits out, earlier this week.

Matthew Lawrence and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas rocked matching black outfits while attending Lifetime and Verizon's Black Excellence Dinner: A Celebration of Female Creatives. The event was put on in celebration of the upcoming TLC documentary TLC Forever. The two-hour documentary will detail the highs and lows of the group's iconic career. It will air in June on Lifetime and A&E.

Lawrence and Chilli have been dating since November, just months after Lawrence finalized his divorce from former Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke in September. The two had been married for three years. They began dating back in 2018.

Lawrence spoke about his relationship with Chilli during an interview with Entertainment Tonight’s Deidre Behar, earlier this month. At the time, he revealed that the two hope to have children. “I hope. … That’s what we’re trying to do,” Lawrence said. “Life is always a surprise. My life is in a complete bloom right now. I get to spend time with an amazing woman like Chilli. I’ve never gotten to be able to experience that kind of relationship before, so it’s quite special. She’s a really, really special human being. I wish more people on the planet were like her. We’d be much better off.”

Lawrence also detailed what he likes most about Chilli. “She’s just got, you know, her morals and her values,” Lawrence revealed. “The way she treats her family. She loves my family, so important. We get along. We’ll talk on the phone and she’s like, ‘My mom’s calling me.’ I’m like, ‘Go get it. I know how important that is.’ Same thing like my mom calls me. It’s not like, ‘Why are you talking to your mom?!’ It’s like, ‘Oh, your mom. Go talk to your mom,’ you know?” Elsewhere in the interview, Lawrence detailed how the two initially bonded during a flight to Atlanta. They made their relationship official on Instagram in December.
