The duo met when working together on the March 2021 song “Spinning.” Daniel also assisted the “Boom Clap” singer with various songs on her Crash album, which was released in March 2022. Dating rumors were sparked soon after, and the couple were later photographed holding hands on a romantic outing in New York City.
Charli made her relationship with The 1975 drummer public in May of that year with an Instagram photo. He’s since made the rare appearance on her social media pages. Daniel, for his part, isn’t a frequent social media user, so posts of Charli on his pages are few and far between.
While the couple have a low-key relationship, Charli briefly discussed how being with Daniel has allowed her to change her approach to making music.
“Now that I’m in a relationship with another musician, he’s influenced me a lot with his process and how he and his band work,” she told The Sun in May 2023. “It’s really different to how I work and that has definitely influenced me and my process.”
Six months later, the duo announced that they had taken their relationship to the next level when Daniel proposed.
Following the engagement announcement, Daniel’s bandmate Matty Healy left a sweet comment reacting to their love. “I cry🥺,” he wrote.
