KJ Apa easily won the hearts of millions of folks. The New Zealand star rose to fame portraying Archie Andrews in the CW teen drama, Riverdale. Archie has always been a popular figure among Archie Comics fans, but Apa’s portrayal has now made the infamous character a total heartthrob. On the show, Archie deals with murders, crime and mysteries while also dealing with complicated high-school relationships.
Unlike his character, Apa’s real-life romance is much more successful. On the show, Archie was involved in a relationship with Veronica Lodge, but the two eventually broke-up, devastating fans of the drama. KJ Apa, meanwhile, is dating French model Clara Berry, and the couple couldn’t be cuter.
KJ Apa and Clara Berry’s blossoming love story
Apa confirmed the couple’s relationship a few weeks ago, but fans were already aware of the pair’s budding romance. There were rumors of the two dating that circulated the internet last December. The actor shared a video on his social media of the two driving around and having a good time. Berry, in turn, shared a photo of the couple posing in the street with the caption, “Je t’aime crazy heaps” under the picture.
Of course, fans are already sharing their love for the two, with one fan commented, “STOP BEING SO CUTE IT’S TOO MUCH TO HANDLE,” on the post. We couldn’t agree more! The couple has quickly wormed their way into our hearts with their adorable PDA.
What makes this even more heartwarming is that it looks like KJ Apa found the one he was looking for. In the past, the 22-year-old actor was very private when it came to his dating history. In an interview with Seventeen, the actor argued that people don’t really know when they’ll meet “The One.”
“The thing is, I don’t think it matters whether you’re looking for a relationship or not — it’s not for us to decide when we meet the love of our lives,” the actor commented. In 2017, during an interview with Cosmopolitan, the red-haired actor spoke more on his character’s personal life — and it now seems to apply his own dating life. “I think after that first season of him bouncing from girl to girl, it’s nice to see him in a proper, stable relationship. It’s good for Archie,” Apa explained.
Back then, the actor was more focused on his career than on his love life. “I think I’m just waiting for the right time, right girl,” he says. “I’m pretty busy at the moment. I don’t know how much I have to offer to someone right now,” the actor continued. It looks like he’s certainly changed his mind!
