Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson have been dating for nearly a year, but neither of them has spoken publicly about their relationship — until now. In a new interview, Johnson didn’t reveal much, but she did share a few words.
The 28-year-old actress told Tatler that she wouldn’t talk about her romance with Martin, then she added, “But I am very happy.”
Johnson and Martin have kept their relationship extremely private, but they haven’t necessarily been hiding their love. Cameras have spotted the two together multiple times, including once in Israel, and another time at Soho House in Malibu.

They have also been spotted taking walks on the beach with their arms around each other and walking their dogs through Martin’s Malibu neighborhood. Johnson has also shown up at some Coldplay concerts, and the two attended a Radiohead concert together.
Then last week, Johnson accompanied Martin to Leonardo DiCaprio’s foundation’s 20th anniversary. At the event, the 41-year-old Martin performed Celine Dion’s hit from Titanic, My Heart Will Go On.
An insider says that Martin and Johnson are spending more and more time together, and Johnson likes hanging out at Martin’s Malibu home. They also occasionally go out for dinner with friends, but they also enjoy having people over. The source added that they appear to be getting serious.
The couple also has matching infinity sign tattoos. Johnson showed hers off earlier this month at the 2018 Venice Film Festival while promoting her new film Suspiria, and Martin flaunted his at the S.E.A. Jeans launch last month. Johnson’s new ink was located above her left elbow, and Martin’s is on his inner right arm.
In addition to the infinity sign, they both also have “XX” markings tattooed inside the symbol.

“Chris is very young at heart, so it makes sense for him to be with someone younger,” claims an insider. “That’s just one of the ways Dakota is very much his type.”
According to Us Weekly, Martin and Johnson have the support of many important people in their lives, including her mother, Melanie Griffith, and his ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow.
Griffith said earlier this year that she adores Chris Martin, and Paltrow — who is also the mother of Martin’s two children, Apple, 14, and Moses, 12 — said that if her ex is happy with Dakota Johnson, then so is she because she only wants what is best for him.
