Olivia Dunne’s new puppy Roux isn’t the only special someone making their Instagram debut this month. The LSU gymnast finally confirmed her relationship with MLB star Paul Skenes with an Instagram hard launch.

The SI Swimsuit model, who was photographed by Ben Watts in Puerto Rico earlier this year for the 2023 issue, shared an adorable photo dump of lots of moments from the past several weeks. The cover snap was a sweet car pic of Dunne holding her new golden haired dog in her arms and smiling bright. She donned white athletic shorts from Vuori and a light pink tank top, also from the activewear brand for which she is a campaign model and ambassador.

In the second snap, the 21-year-old posed arm-in-arm with her Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher boyfriend. She wore a white cap sleeve romper, while the California native showed pride for his alma mater in a gray shirt with a large yellow-and-purple LSU helmet logo.

The TikTok star, who is the highest-paid female NCAA athlete in the country, also included snapshots from college nights out, behind the scenes images from gymnastics training, media day pics, milestone birthday content and more.

“Here’s what you missed this month!” the New Jersey native captioned the post.

“ur so cute i’m obsessed,” fellow influencer and SI Swimsuit model Olivia Ponton commented.

“love a good photo dump,” teammate, BFF and roommate Elena Arenas added.

“sweet baby roux 🥹,” fellow LSU gymnast Haleigh Bryant wrote.

“YUPPPPP HARD LAUNCH,” Breese Maroc chimed.

“The pup is a star 🤩,” the official Vuori Clothing account noted.
