So who is the mystery woman? The 34-year-old plus-sized model is of Puerto Rican and Kuwaiti descent.

The beauty has done both runway and catalog modeling for brands like Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty, Lane Bryant, and Levi’s. The model confirmed her romance with the “Lollipop” rapper via Instagram stories Monday afternoon by posting adorable photo booth pictures of her and Weezy, writing, “Somehow in the middle of all the madness, something special happened. Us.”
