It's the small things! Travis Barker is one happy guy. The Blink-182 drummer gushed about Rita Ora just days before Us Weekly exclusively confirmed that they are dating.

Barker, 39, posted a sweet Instagram photo of the couple while attending the Power 106 All-Star Game in L.A. on Sept. 20. "Me and the beautiful @ritaora at @power_106 #Power106AllStars," he captioned the black-and-white snapshot.

Ora, 24, shared the pic and added: "Nice to see you too."

As previously reported, the Fifty Shades of Grey actress — who's dated Calvin Harris and Rob Kardashian — reached out to Barker first. "They have been together every day since," a source told Us. "He’s really into her. He likes interesting women and she's beautiful." 

She's also self-aware. This past July, she told Marie Claire that she's afraid of being alone. "I'm not afraid to admit that, you know. I'm not embarrassed to admit that," she said at the time. "I just hope it's not a never-ending cycle. Sometimes love just makes you feel crazy."

Barker, meanwhile, was famously married to Shanna Moakler from 2004 to 2008. The exes share son Landon, 11, and daughter Alabama, 9.
