Earlier this year, Kai opened up to his own social media followers about his sexuality, confirming he is "trans male". “Maybe I just don’t say it that much because I don’t see a reason to really say it socially. But I’m a trans male, so that’s why I am prideful.”
He also took to the social media platform to share the exciting news of the couple's engagement.
“She said ‘yes’ and I’m the happiest mf alive. @jessicaveronica here’s to a lifetime of love and memories. Thanks for being in my life,” he captioned some more images of the happy moment.
Jess and Kai made their relationship public last year, just months after the singer had split from longtime partner Ruby Rose. Jess first dated Ruby in 2008, with the couple later rekindling their romance again in 2016 which lasted another two years before their breakup was announced in April 2018.
Posting to Twitter at the time, Ruby wrote, “It’s with a heavy heart to share that Jess and I parted ways a few months ago. We still love each other very much and I will always support her and be her biggest advocate. With love x.”
Jess also opened up about the split during an interview with BUILD Series Sydney.
“Nobody wants to hear the happy love songs, let’s be real,” her sister Lisa joked, a statement Jess followed up. “Well it was like ‘do we write about you getting married or do we write about me getting my heart ripped out?’” she joked. “Heart getting ripped out, people are here for that.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
