Jake T. Austin has a new girlfriend.
This really should not be a very big deal, no offense to the young actor best known for starring opposite Selena Gomez on Wizards of Waverly Place.
Austin just isn't exactly an A-Lister.
Folks are not surfing celebrity gossip websites to learn about his love life.
But Austin’s Instagram photo of him kissing Danielle Caesar has gone viral because Caesar is a fan who has been Tweeting at the star for more than five years.
And the persistence has apparently paid off. Big time.
Back in 2009, for example, Caesar wrote the following on social media:
"Me and @jaketaustin are getting married. Shhh =x he just doesn't know it yet ;) yes I know I'm a freak :D."
Maybe. Or maybe you are actually a psychic, Danielle.
"I'm crazy for her," Austin captioned the above photo of himself and Caesar sharing a smooch.
Caesar, meanwhile, recently shared her own romantic picture of her and Austin inside a photo booth, writing as a message along with it:
"Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favorite."
Austin is aware of how strange this may seem to outsiders, but he released a statement in light of the couple's newfound attention that reads:
We're young and having fun just getting to know each other.
It doesn't matter how you meet someone - on set, in a coffee shop, at school, or in the business. Sometimes you connect with people at the right moment & you just click.
That's very true.
That's also a scary prospect for Justin Bieber, who will now be inundated with even more Tweets from female admirers, all of whom have been given hope that cyber
stalking flattering can actually pay off on occasion.
