Well, we can't say we saw this one coming.
When rumors about Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter dating first went public, it was tempting to dismiss the reports as simply another case of the tabloid media getting out of hand.
Anyone who saw those famous first photos of Miley and Kaitlynn making out could tell there was a strong attraction between these two, but both women were fresh from serious relationships, and few Cyrus fans believed she would move on from Liam Hemsworth so quickly.
Not only has Miley been continually drawn back to Liam throughout her life, but -- how do we put this delicately? -- she tends to stick to her kind in terms of artistry and celebrity status, and Kaitlynn is a Z-lister who's best known for banging Brody Jenner.
But against all odds, these two seem to be getting serious.
And we're not just saying that in response to the reports that Miley and Kaitlynn have been "basically having sex" in public at all of New York and LA's most star-studded hot spots, clearly hoping to send the message that they're an item.
No, we're responding to the more serious signs that a real relationship is blossoming -- such as the fact that Kaitlynn met Miley's mom, and has now moved in with the pop icon.
Though to be fair, the cohabitation might be a temporary arrangement.
“Kaitlynn and Miley are in New York together both doing their thing for fashion week,” a source tells Hollywood Life.
“They are staying together and spending their free time together but they’ve both been very busy with work so there isn’t a ton of downtime. But whenever they’re not booked, they’re together," the insider adds.
"They stay in a lot, they’d rather have friends over, it’s just more private.”
Yes, if we know anything about Miley, it's the fact that she's the private type.
"There is a glow that Miley surrounds herself with that people see when they hang out with her,” another source tells Hollywood Life.
“It is one of the main reasons Miley is such a star and for Kaitlynn to be with Miley in her stratosphere is so enjoyable to her and so exciting"
Apparently, early in the relationship, Carter shared the public's assessment:
"Kaitlynn thought this was just going to be some sort of fun fling but it is now becoming much more important for her and this is something Kaitlynn wants to be involved with for a long time to come," says the insider.
"Everything is really working out.”
As we might have guessed from how quickly this relationship has been progressing, it seems Cyrus and Carter were mutually smitten from the start.
“Kaitlyn instantly was attracted to Miley’s complete uniqueness and her kind heart but now she has seen even more with how she performs and how she is out at events," says the source.
"She has seen the Miley behind closed doors and in front of the camera and Kaitlyn is so intrigued by her overall presence,” the insider adds.
“Kaitlyn couldn’t stop looking at Miley’s pics, she was like, ‘Dear God’. She thinks Miley is perfection on every level."
Sounds like dating one of the world's most famous pop stars is slightly more interesting than being fake married to Brody Jenner.
