With the song Cool Kids by Echosmith playing in the background, Matthew posted a picture of himself in his school uniform looking pretty unrecognisable.
The video then cuts to shots of him now as a 27-year-old with his girlfriend Laura Nolan.
“This trend is a nice reminder,” he captioned the video.
“For me, it felt almost as if it would belittle what it was. I’d rather keep things private for as long as possible,” he told us.
With Laura admitting, “That time that we had without people knowing was good for us to start things off and allow it to progress and grow.”
They even kept their relationship secret from their families, although they admit both of their mothers were trying to get them together from the beginning!
“They all met super early and they were definitely rooting for us from the start,” Laura admits.
“They were secretly trying to make it work and get us together but didn’t know there was already something there between us.”
