It’s official: Sam Smith is no longer single, and he happens to be dating a total cutie named Jonathan “Jongo” Zeizel.

The singer made it official via Instagram over the New Year weekend while vacationing with his new boyfriend in Sydney, but we first took notice of Jongo when our sister site featured him last year.

Looks like the “Stay With Me” singer got there first. Still, let’s get to know Jonathan a little better.

1. He’s 23, lives in New York, and sometimes goes by the name “Jongo”.
