Luckily they got picture-perfect weather as they roamed around the city. The pair hired a private boat for a tour of the emblematic water canals. They took a photo in front of a classic Venetian backdrop in which Emma held a blush-coloured rose. The couple spent a romantic evening having the classic Italian cocktails. Simpson sipped on a Negroni and McKeon had an Aperol Spritz.
Emma McKeon and Cody Simpson Relationship Explored
It wasn’t the first time the duo vacationed together. They seem to have enjoyed hopping around Europe a couple of times previously. It was in early May 2022, that rumors of a blossoming romance started doing rounds between Simpson, 25, and Mckeon, 27. The Daily Telegraph‘s reports revealed that Emma McKeon is dating the Aussie pop singer-turned-swimmer who has previously dated Miley Cyrus, Gigi Hadid and Kylie Jenner. The new couple initially kept their relationship low-key. Reports claimed that the pair had moved in together in the Gold Coast while they trained for the upcoming Birmingham Commonwealths games.
Simpson finally confirmed the rumours by making their relationship Instagram official on July 5. He posted several photos from their trip to Spain. “A brief rendezvous in Barcelona with my love. @emmamckeon,” he captioned the post.
A couple of weeks later, Emma also shared pictures from their visit in Paris. In the first picture, McKeon and Simpson held hands as they looked at the famous painting. In the second, they were seen speaking to each other. “Monet’s Water Lilies,” she captioned the post. The couple have an undeniable chemistry.
Simpson certainly outdid himself by winning a relay gold and a silver and finishing fifth in singles. He has made it to the Australian swim team beside his girlfriend Emma. He will be representing his country in the star-studded Duel in the Pool exhibition races against America.
Now they are all set to appear on Channel 7’s Spotlight conducted by Channel 7 reporter Denham Hitchcock. The pre-filmed interview will provide insights into their golden swimming careers and their swoon-worthy romance. Denham added that the pair looked “head over heels into each other”. The much-awaited interview is going to air on 31st July.
