Gavin James has revealed that his girlfriend didn’t know he was a famous singer when they met.

The star and his girlfriend have been going strong for three years now, but Gavin reveals that for a while, she didn’t know what a big name he was.

Stefania was visiting friends in Ireland when Gavin met her.

The Always singer likes to keep his relationship private, rarely sharing photos of them together, but he recently shared some sweet details of their early days.

“I met her on my sister’s couch, I was sofa surfing,” he revealed.

And Gavin explains that he never quite explained what his job was.

“She’s a lovely girl, I just didn’t really explain what I was doing, music wise. I just said I really love playing music and that sort of stuff.”

It was only when they were out at a gig and he was being recognised by people that she started to ask questions.

“She came over to see Bruce Springsteen in Dublin and everyone was like ‘alright Gav!’ ‘Hiya Gavin, picture?’ and she was like ‘Gavin what is going on?'”

“She’s Greek so she kind of sounds like [Gloria] from Modern Family, she was like ‘Gavin, what do you do this for, what is going on?’…she’s amazing,” he told the Six O’Clock show.

Shortly after this, Stefania got to see him in action when he played a massive gig in Dublin.

“So, she came over for that and like three weeks later was the 3 Arena gig and she was like what?!

The Dubliner adds that it was an ideal way to get to know someone.

“It was the best way of meeting someone I think because it was three months of not knowing, and it was the first time that’s ever happened really, and It’s been three years now!”

How cute!
