Tinashe attends the Harper's BAZAAR 'Icons by Carine Roitfeld' party at The Plaza Hotel on Sept. 8, 2017 in New York City.

The singer's Instagram pic marks the first picture with her supposed beau.

After Tinashe confirmed on Mar. 8 via TMZ sports that 76er’s player Ben Simmons was her “little boo thang,” Simmons decided to confirm the rumors himself. Both the R&B star and Simmons took to Instagram yesterday (March 22) after the Sixers' win to post a cuddly photo of each other.

“This is a dime I can’t pass,” reads Simmons caption. Tinashe kept it subtle, using just a heart and lock emoji as the caption. Needless to say, the Twitter world is excited the two are together. We've compiled a list of our favorite reactions below.

Tinashe recently announced her album "Joyride" is slated for release for April 13. Her single "No Drama" with Offset of Migos recently got the visual treatment, and currently sits at No. 23 on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs Chart. The music video for her latest single, "Faded Love" with Future, is also below.

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers moved to 40-30 in Simmons' rookie season with a win over the Memphis Grizzlies last night -- giving them the fourth-best record in the Eastern Conference, and keeping them on pace to make the playoffs for the first time in six seasons. 

Congrats Benashe! We are all happy for you.
