We don’t know who planned Olivia Dunne and Paul Skenes’s latest date night, but it certainly was one for the books—and fans totally agree. The star athlete couple, who met at LSU when their roommates and besties began dating, have been together since the summer.

The NCAA gymnast, who is the highest-paid female college athlete in the country, and the MLB player, who was the No. 1 draft pick this year, went on a breathtaking helicopter ride around the New York City skyline at sunset. To be quite frank, few dates within the country are better than that.

The 21-year-old TikTok influencer shared the most stunning video with her 7.8 million followers. She filmed various clips of the gorgeous view from the helicopter window, and included snippets of her and the Pittsburgh Pirates star, 21, walking on the runway at the small, private heliport, as well as a cute selfie video of the two of them with chunky headphones on.

“date night,” the New Jersey native wrote on screen. The post was set to the sound of Noah Kahan’s “Stick Season.”

“catching flights cause you caught feelings> #foryou #nyc,” Dunne, who is a senior at LSU, captioned the video.

“that’s literally a dream!!” one fan commented.

“Lucky girl,” another wrote.

“Paul living the dream life fr,” someone else added.

“This is Literally the cutest couple I have ever seen!!!” another chimed.

While the couple are protective of their relationship, we love seeing sweet snippets like this one of the pair.
