Folks, this is serious.
We’ve said that before, we know.
But it still hasn’t settled in, no matter how many times Sofia Richie and Scott Disick express extreme affection for each other.
The latest example came to us on Saturday, after Richie shared the romantic photo of herself and Disick on Instagram, wishing her boyfriend a very happy 35th birthday in the accompanying caption.
"Happy Birthday babe! Thank you for being you. Love you," wrote Sofia.
Yes, she loves him.
It’s safe to assume no one saw such intense feelings coming when these two hooked up last year.
Richie had semi-recently been scorned by Justin Bieber; Disick spent all his time drinking and/or pining over Kourtney Kardashian.
And yet they started posing for photos together on social media… the romance continued to heat up… and now many celebrity gossip fans barely even bat an eye when a message such as the one above is relayed.
Heck, there’s even been talk that Disick wants to put a baby inside of Richie.
The reality star is allegedly "putting pressure on Sofia to have a baby," according to an anonymous Life & Style source, which is hilarious and troubling on many levels.
One of which being that Richie is 19 years old.
We’re also pretty sure that three kids spawned by Scott Disick is already three kids too many.
(No offense, Mason, Reign and Penelope. You’re all cuties and we wish you nothing but the best.)
In the image above, Richie and Disick are on vacation in St. Bart’s.
They seem to take many trips together, often snappng pictures while on board a private jet or on some tropical location.
They also seem to spend a lot of time with Disick’s aforementioned children, which has supposedly prompted some backlash from their mother.
"Kourtney flipped out and she told Scott that Sofia needs to back the f-ck off right now before she makes her back off," an insider said of Kardashian in March.
Richie’s response, according to this same report?
"She doesn’t care what Kourtney thinks."
Despite their age difference, meanwhile, Scott and Sofia are still going strong after almost a year of dating.
That much is very clear at this point.
They "have gotten more serious the past few months," an insider recently told E! News, adding:
"They have definitely had their ups and downs, but lately everything has been really good between them."
The stars were spotted getting cozy on a yacht in Cannes about a year ago at this time, in May of 2017.
Then, in September Disick seemingly confirmed their romantic status by posting a photo of the two of them in Miami.
There are no questions about it now, however. These two are hot, heavy… and headed to the altar?
Crazier things have happened, right?
Such as anyone wanting to date Scott Disick in the first place.
