Olivia Dunne is past the soft launching stage, and her boyfriend, Pittsburgh Pirates player Paul Skenes, has already made his debut on the LSU gymnast’s popular Instagram account. Now, the influencer is introducing the No. 1 MLB draft pick to her 7.8 million TikTok fans.

The SI Swimsuit model, who made her debut in Puerto Rico earlier this year and returns to the magazine as a rookie next May, is visiting New York City with her beau. As everyone knows, spending the holiday season in the Big Apple is truly special.

The two created a silly video together and the New Jersey native lip-synced along to a popular audio as her 6' 6" boyfriend stood by her side holding a cup of coffee.

“Are you from New York even? Do you have a big black puffer jacket even?” the NCAA star, who is the highest-paid female college athlete in the country, mouthed along to the trending sound, and smiled bright at the end.

Dunne, 21, donned a black puffer coat with a furry hood, and wore round metal sunglasses and a designer purse, while Skenes, 21, rocked black sunglasses and a navy puffer jacket on top of a heather gray hoodie.

The Livvy Fund creator opted for a fresh, minimal glam look, including winged eyeliner, rosy blush and glossy lips.

“Pauls first tok🚨 #foryou #nyc,” she captioned the Dec. 20 video.

“My glorious king Paul skenes,” one fan chimed.

The two met in college when their roommates and best friends began dating. The athletic power couple first sparked romance rumors when Dunne was spotted wearing the California native’s jersey at the College World Series in June.
