A week after going public with her girlfriend, Jojo Siwa has opened up about falling in love and it’s truly heartwarming.
Keep scrolling to check out the touching post…
Siwa has been dominating headlines in the last few weeks…
And we all know why!
Since coming out as gay, Siwa has sadly received a wide array of mixed responses…
But all in all, fans are overjoyed with the teenager’s transparency about her own identity and sexuality.
Last week, she revealed she had a girlfriend in an anniversary post.
And now, she’s opened up about falling in love…
Now, in the last couple of years, Siwa has risen to unprecedented levels of fame.
She now has over twelve million followers on her YouTube channel alone, with her vlogs and music videos each raking in millions of views.
But she wasn’t always a YouTuber…
Siwa has an extensive list of accolades that have made her who she is today.
Her time in the spotlight began on a very popular TV show…
The star made her first appearance on Abby Lee Miller’s show back in its 4th season.
The show, which has since skyrocketed the likes of Maddy Ziegler to fame, introduced us to the energetic and bubbly young girl – and she certainly made an impact.
But it wasn’t long before she found her second calling in life.
While she was getting her bearings with life as a social media star, Siwa found some success in the world of music.
Her most popular tracks include “Boomerang” and “Kid in a Candy Store”…
Songs that have seen her tour the globe.
And, just to give us a little hint as to how much dollar she really makes…
She even owns her own mansion.
Yep, this teenager has more money than we will ever own.
So as you can see, Siwa has a very distinctive style…
And the teen superstar is rarely without her colorful outfits and her trademark side ponytail and bow.
And not forgetting that glitter!
So. Much. Glitter.
But in the last month, Siwa’s fans have been talking about something else entirely.
As stated earlier, Siwa made a groundbreaking announcement regarding her personal life recently.
The teen sensation came out.
The teenager made the brave decision to reveal her sexuality to her followers.
People have been sending in their messages of support since the announcement…
Now, Siwa first filmed herself on TikTok miming along to the lyrics of “Born This Way” by Lady Gaga:
“No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgender life, I’m on the right track baby I was born to survive.”
She quickly followed up her video with this Twitter post…
Where she showed off a gift from her cousin; a t-shirt that reads, “Best Gay Cousin Ever.”
Of course, with every celebrity announcement comes negativity…
And even though the teen received a few comments of negativity – and was even swatted as a publicity stunt by the media – she has taken it all in her stride and is clearly happier than ever.
So much so…
That the teen took to Instagram TV to discuss her sexuality in further depth following the announcement.
“I am really, really, happy! And now that the world gets to see this side of my life, it makes me really really happy,” she expressed in her fifteen-minute video
“Now that I got to share that with the world, it’s awesome…I want people to know that there is so much love in the world and it is so incredible!”
She noted that her career has always made her “super happy,” but that “personally” she’s never felt happier.
“Somebody said, ‘What label are you?’ And you know, I have thought about this, and the reason I am not ready to say this answer is because I really don’t know this answer,” Siwa shared.
“I think humans are awesome. I think humans are really incredible people.”
She then assured fans that her sexuality was not the reason she and her ex-boyfriend, Mark Bontempo, broke up.
Siwa also touched on how she’s received support from her parents.
“You know what my dad said? He said, ‘Hey man, love is universal.’ My parents have known,” she revealed, ‘My mom said she’s known for the last 2 years.’
Well, it turns out that Siwa is no longer single…
As she revealed to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that she actually has a girlfriend!
Talking about a TikTok clip of her dancing to Paramore’s “Ain’t It Fun” with members of the Pride House, Jojo told Jimmy her thought was, “I think this TikTok is going to out me.”
At the same time, she said she realized, “I don’t really mind, it is true. I do have the most amazing, wonderful, perfect, most beautiful girlfriend in the whole world. It’s not something I’m ashamed of, I just haven’t shown the internet yet.”
She said that as she slowly teased her official coming out, Siwa and her girlfriend were taking note of all the positive reactions she was getting.
But she was also aware that it was “a really big risk” coming forward. And she has received some pushback from less tolerant people, which she’s handled expertly by just dismissing them as they come in.
If I lost everything that I’ve created because of being myself and because of loving who I want to love, I don’t want it,” she told Jimmy. “That’s not what I want if I can’t love who I want to love; that’s one of the most important things to me.”
And believe it or not, it was actually her girlfriend who encouraged her to post the photo of her “best gay cousin” t-shirt on Twitter.
“My cousin had got me that shirt and I’d actually taken the picture a week before I posted it and I put it on my ‘close friends’ Instagram story as all my friends and family know,” she explained.
“And then one day, I was on FaceTime to my girlfriend and we were just talking about it… and she was super encouraging of me to post the picture to my fans!”
Siwa also shared this adorable anniversary post on Instagram.
“After being my best friend for over a year, January 8th 2021 I got to start calling this exceptional human my Girlfriend… and Since then I’ve been the happiest I have ever been! She seriously is the most loving, supportive, happiest, protective, and just the most beautiful perfect person in the world. And I get to call her mine! Happy one month to my girl! I love you more and more everyday!”
And now, she’s spoke out about falling in love.
In a Valentine’s Day Instagram post to her girlfriend, Jojo revealed that she has “fallen in love.”
The post, which included an adorable picture of Kylie giving her a piggyback ride, reads, “It’s my first valentines dayyyy!!”
“No one in the world makes me as happy as this girl does. I’m so thankful to have fallen in love with the most perfect person ever who makes me smile 24/7. I love you more than you’ll ever know!”
