JoJo Siwa introduced her boyfriend Mark Bontempo to the world in a TikTok video, after months of keeping their relationship a secret.
JoJo Siwa is having quite the year – not only has she began to leave her signature brand behind (hello, brunette phase!), but she's even bagged herself a boyfriend. And, after months of keeping the identity of her mystery guy a secret, she's finally revealed him as Mark Bontempo.
Mark, who is the younger brother of influencer Madison Bontempo, was first introduced to JoJo's 26 million followers in a TikTok video celebrating National Girlfriend Day. The pair jumped on the trend where couples dress up in each other's clothes, while lip syncing to viral TikTok song 'Famous (I'm the One)' by Mozzy and IAMSU!.
While the 17 year old was dressed casually in her boyfriends clothes, unfortunately for Mark, that of course meant donning her signature bow along with an extra AF sparkly jacket and pair of hot pink leggings. It's a look.
Just last week, JoJo took part in one of the 'put a finger down' challenges on the platform, and told the world that she wasn't single.
Confirming the news, Mark himself posted a duet with JoJo's challenge video, captioned: "If it’s not me you have some explaining to do #nationalgirlfriendday," as the camera panned down to them hanging out.

Mark, who already has a strong 19,000 followers on Instagram, has actually been dropping subtle hints for a while that the announcement about their relationship could've been coming. His most recent photo was captioned "stay tuned" hinting that some big news was on its way. And what bigger news than being JoJo Siwa's boyfriend?
They've been dating for a few months now, and the Dance Moms star has previously described him as "a dream" without ever revealing his name.
JoJo has been hot on TikTok this year, showing a new side to her as she turned 17, by roasting her haters and openly posting makeup-free videos that no one could've expected from arguably the world's most over-the-top, confident teen. And now a new man on her arm? She's really growing up!
We're not totally sure how they met just yet, but now the news is out in the open, there'll definitely be some more cute content coming our way ASAP.
