Ooh-la-la-la! Shawn Mendes spilled the tea about the start of his relationship with Camila Cabello on Saturday (Oct. 26).

During a fan Q&A he hosted in Hindmarsh, Australia, the pop star revealed the exact day he and Cabello became an item. "We haven't been dating that long," he said. "We've been dating since July 4th, officially."

That would mean that, according to Mendes' timeline, he and the former Fifth Harmony member left the friend zone a couple of weeks after their hit collaboration "Señorita" was released on June 21, but before it hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100 the week of Aug. 26 following Lil Nas X's record-breaking, 16-week reign with "Old Town Road." 

Mendes is currently in Australia for the Oceania leg of his self-titled world tour, while Cabello recently headed to the U.K. to perform her new single "Liar" on The Graham Norton Show
