Actress Issa Pressman just showed off rumored boyfriend James Reid in an Instagram post on March 28, days after they made the headlines for their supposed hints at having a romantic relationship.

Pressman posted photos of her and Reid chilling on the couch with smiles on their faces as they each hold acoustic guitars.

"school day," Pressman wrote along with new moon and full moon emojis.

Reid and Pressman on March 16 each shared photos of each other during Harry Styles' Love on Tour concert in Manila held last March 14.

The photos included a mirror selfie as they held each other's hands.

Their "soft launch" got mixed reactions, as Pressman had been accused of being a third party during Reid's relationship with Nadine Lustre. Reid and Lustre, known to fans as JaDine, announced their breakup in January 2020, though said it actually happened in November 2019.

Days after Reid and Pressman's respective posts, Reid took to Twitter and Instagram Story to address criticisms against Pressman, saying past rumors about her "are just that, rumors."

Without explicitly confirming nor denying their relationship, Reid said he felt the need to speak up "now" because "this is the start of something beautiful,” which he said he won't let anyone take away from him.

“All you need to know from me is that [I’m] the happiest I’ve ever been," he added.

Lustre, meanwhile, is already in a relationship with businessman Christophe Bariou, making things Instagram official in January 2022.
