Who is Emma Chamberlain dating, you ask? The social media IT girl—whose outfits and 'summer uniform' have basically shaped our whole capsule wardrobe—has officially lifted the lid on her relationship. So, here's everything you need to know about Emma Chamberlain's boyfriend—from how long they've been together to their matching Halloween costumes!

The duo has actually been teasing their relationship for some time, really ever since Emma starred in (and seemingly inspired) Tucker's music video for NEVERLETYOUGO. From that moment onwards they've given us rare glimpses into their lives together, from cute Instagram snaps and red carpet appearances—like the Vanity Fair Oscar after-party—plus a few subtle nods to each other in interviews. But now it seems, they're officially hard launching their relationship!

So, what do we know about Emma's boyfriend (whose collection of shades could rival Emma's sunglasses) and how long have they been together, exactly? For anyone already totally invested in this pairing (*guilty*) here’s what we know about Emma and Tucker...

What are Tucker Pillsbury's tattoos?

Like Emma, Tucker has several tattoos, especially on his arms and they're worth a look if you need some tiny, micro tattoo inspo!

His tats include barbed wire, a ladder, a butterfly, a skull and even a bird cage, along with several other inks scattered across Tucker's torso and legs. Though don't ask how many he has—because, as Emma pointed out in their GQ Couples Quiz (opens in new tab)—even he doesn't know!

When did Emma Chamberlain and Tucker Pillsbury start dating? 

Despite being very open with her day-to-day life, thanks to her YouTube channel, Emma is understandably very private about her love life, so particular dates for when things began were initially, pretty scarce—until now, that is!

While the pair kept the timeframe of their relationship on the DL, Emma and Tucker recently revealed in their GQ interview (opens in new tab) that it all began at the beginning of March 2020, meaning they've not been together for three years.

Tucker revealed that he slid into her DM's, telling her one of her outfits was "fire" but confessed the moment he really fell for her was seeing a TikTok of her. He recalled how in the video, Emma was "trying to twerk to a Dayglow song in the bathroom and surprising herself that her ass moved a little bit. For some reason—I don't know why, had nothing to do with the twerking, I'm not a f****** creep—but it showed her personality."

They then went on to discuss their first date—which they admit was a disaster. After months of texting, the big day came but both of them were so nervous, that the just played Fortnite. Thankfully, the damage wasn't permanent and they were able to overcome the butterflies during another group hangout. 

Despite initially wanting to keep their relationship out of the public eye, the pair have now decided to lift the lid a little, with Emma quipping: "There are parts of our relationship that are going to be private forever. But I don't think we need to be secret anymore. It's just like, I'm over that s***," before dubbing their interview an official "hard launch."

As for how fans first caught wind of their relationship—Emma appeared on the Call Her Daddy podcast in January 2022 and revealed that yes, she was infact dating someone, though she didn't name any names.

She did however give fans a glimpse into their relationship dynamic, saying: “Being best friends with your significant other is the best f--king thing ever.”

Much like spidey co-stars Tom Holland and Zendaya, these two have really captured the hearts of fans, and every time there's even a hint of them together, or on each other socials, it's a major moment.

In Tucker’s solo interview with GQ in April 2022, he revealed how fans sussed out that they were dating in the first place. He explained that after he commented on one of her Instagram posts, fans quickly discovered that her parents were following him—which is definitely a dead giveaway!

He also shared how they met, saying that he just DM'd her on Instagram and after texting back and forth for weeks, they finally hung out and played Fortnite at her apartment.

He then said: "She said 'I love you' a week into our relationship, and loving her back changed something in my brain. I wouldn’t say it cured my depression completely, but I was suddenly going outside, working out, and taking care of myself for the first time.

"I knew I was in love with her before I met her. I can judge people well online, and I knew I loved her because of little things she did, like the way she blinks and shit. It’s stupid little things! I felt like I knew her. She reminded me of myself."—UM, we're obsessed.
