Mahomies are weeping! Fifth Harmony singer Camila Cabello has confirmed what many fans have assumed for some time — she's dating teen heartthrob Austin Mahone! The former X Factor contestant gushed about her beau during Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday, Nov. 4.

During the taping, Cabello, 17, and the rest of Fifth Harmony — Ally Brooke, Lauren Jauregui, Dinah Jane Hansen, and Normani Hamilton — shut down rumors that they've ever dated a One Direction boybander. When host Andy Cohen asked who's dating Mahone, however, Cabello shyly raised her hand.

Mahone took the opportunity to confirm the relationship himself via Twitter shortly after. "Like you guys didn't know already," he teased.

Cabello and Mahone, 18, first met at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. This is the first high-profile romance for Cabello. Back in January, an insider told Us Weekly that the "What About Love" singer and Justin Bieber's on-and-off love Selena Gomez were briefly "seeing each other" after being set up by mutual friend Taylor Swift.

Mahone — who got his start on YouTube in 2010 — opened up to Us about past romances in May. "I had my first kiss at 13," he said in his 25 Things You Don't Know About Me feature. He added: "The first thing I notice about a girl is her hair." Cabello, of course, is best known for always rocking eye-catching, oversized headbands.
