The pair has been dating since the summer of 2019 and have spent much of quarantine secluded in Cabello's Miami home. During an interview with SiriusXM's Jim Ryan, Mendes said the quarantine brought the two together after their busy schedules had kept them apart for long stretches of time. "And now we've kind of become one, where we're doing our thing. And it's really interesting how that dynamic changes," said Mendes.

This fall, the couple decided to add a third member to their quarantine crew, a new puppy. "During uncertain times like this we need a reminder that sweet miracle things like puppies exist in the world too, meet the new member of the pack: Tarzan!" wrote Cabello, alongside a video of Mendes playing with a swaddled Tarzan. After addressing the uncertainties of the country post-election, Cabello closed out the caption with, "love you guys and Tarzan sends a big puppy lick."
