Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox may have only been dating for a few months, but they’ve already reached Instagram selfie status!
A recent social media post by the rapper shows the new couple posing together in a silly but intimate fashion. In the black-and-white photo, Machine Gun Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker, and Fox playfully stick out their tongues and wrap their arms around each other. But perhaps the sweetest part of the photo is Kelly’s heartfelt caption.

Kelly, 30, and Fox, 34, first connected on the set of the upcoming crime thriller “Midnight in the Switchgrass.” They recently opened up about their budding romance in an appearance on the podcast “Give Them Lala…With Randall,” hosted by reality star Lala Kent and her film producer fiancé, Randall Emmett.
“The second that I was in a room with him and said hello to him and looked into his eyes, I knew, because I’m into (astrology), I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame,” Fox gushed.
“Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has, like, ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time,” she continued. “So, we’re actually two halves of the same soul, I think. I said that to him almost immediately. Because I felt it right away.”
And the connection was mutual, according to Kelly.
“Our trailers were next to each other so I just waited outside on my trailer steps every day I worked just to catch one glimpse of eye contact,” he said. “She has the most gorgeous eyes I’ve ever seen.”
Their relationship initially surprised fans because just over two months ago, Fox’s ex Brian Austin Green revealed they had split after 10 years of marriage.
“We had an amazing relationship and I will always love her and I know she will always love me. And I know as far as a family, like what we built is really cool. It’s really special,” Green, who starred in “Beverly Hills, 90210,” said on his podcast. “We decided, ‘Let’s make sure we don’t lose that.'”
Green, 47, and Fox share three sons: Noah, 7, Bodhi, 6, and Journey, 3. Machine Gun Kelly has a daughter, Casie, with his ex-girlfriend Emma Cannon.Our goal is to create a safe and engaging place for users to connect over interests and passions. In

The rapper, whose real name is Richard Baker, made his new relationship with the “Transformers” star Instagram-official in a heartfelt post on Tuesday.
In the black-and-white mirror selfie, the couple stand side-by-side in black outfits while sticking out their tongues.
“waited for eternity to find you again…” Kelly wrote, adding knife and heart emojis.
The new couple, who starred together in Kelly’s music video “Bloody Valentine,” gave their first joint interview on the podcast “Give Them Lala … With Randall” on July 22. The “Jennifer’s Body” actress revealed that she knew she and Kelly were meant to be once he was revealed as her co-star in their upcoming film “Midnight in the Switchgrass.”
At the time, Fox was with “Beverly Hills, 90210” star Brian Austin Green. They married in 2010 and share sons Noah, 7, Bodhi, 6, and Journey, 3. Rumors about the couple’s split surfaced after Fox was photographed in a car with Kelly, and Green later confirmed the news of their breakup on an episode of his podcast “…With Brian Austin Green” on May 18.
“I was like, ‘who is going to play this role?’ And he (director Randall Emmett) was like, ‘Oh, we just got Machine Gun Kelly,’ and immediately, I was like, ‘Uh-oh,’ ” Fox, 34, says of discussions about the film.
“I just felt it, like, deep in my soul – that something was going to come from that.”
While Kelly says he wasn’t as confident as his partner, he too was smitten and “waited outside on my trailer steps, every day … to catch one glimpse of eye contact.”
“She would have to get out of her car, and walk from her car to her trailer. There were, like, five steps between the car and the trailer. And I would just sit there and hope,” the 30-year-old rapper says.
Some might call them soul mates, but Fox prefers the term “twin flame.”
“A twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time,” she says. “So we’re actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away.”
