Dance Moms star JoJo Siwa has revealed her new girlfriend on social media, celebrating one month together after having been "best friends" for over a year. 

The social media sensation caused waves when she came out as part of the LGBTQ community last month - telling her fans her family had known for years. 

"Now that the world gets to see this side of my life, it makes me really happy," she told fans in an Instagram Live video at the time. 

Alongside a series of snaps and videos of the couple wearing onesies at Disneyland and singing in the car, Siwa explained: "After being my best friend for over a year, on January 8, 2021 I got to start calling this exceptional human my girlfriend... and since then I've been the happiest I have ever been." 

The 17-year-old dancer called her significant other "the most loving, supportive, happiest, protective, and just the most beautiful perfect person in the world". 

"And I get to call her mine!" Siwa continued. "Happy one month to my girl! I love you more and more every day!"

Meanwhile, Siwa's love interest Kylie also posted a tribute to the relationship, captioning her Instagram post: "Fall in love with your best friend, guys. It's THE BEST feeling in the entire world." 

"Here's to one month with my favourite human," she continued. "I love you sharky." 

Last month Siwa dropped her first hint that she had an announcement on the way by lip-synching to Lady Gaga's LGBTQ anthem 'Born This Way' before sharing a snap wearing a T-shirt that read "Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever" on Instagram. 

The popular YouTuber said she had received "endless love and support" after coming out.
