While Houston Texans star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is preparing for his first preseason game, his new girlfriend Iggy Azalea, spilled the beans on their romantic relationship.

The last sports figure Azalea was last known to be dating was Golden State Warriors guard, Nick Young. That relationship ended after Azalea accused Young of cheating on her.

Hopkins looks to be a refreshing change of pace for the Australian rapper. This sweet Instagram exchange, compiled by the New York Post, is just all kinds of sappy.

“My Aussies call me Legend,” Hopkins wrote Aug. 2, to which Azalea replied, “I could think of a few other things to call you.”

Awww… Hopkins and the Texans travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs in the team’s first exhibition game. Provided Hopkins and Azalea stay together, the Texans look to inherit some new fans from the land down under.
