Over the past year and five months, a celebrity couple kept their dating experience with each other very much under wraps until some new details were exposed recently.
According to an October 26th news report from the U.K.’s Daily Mail, actress Regina Hall (pictured right) and rapper/actor Common (pictured left) are madly in love with each other. The pair crossed paths in Atlanta during their work together on the film Barbershop: The Next Cut in May of 2015.
The Daily Mail reported that Common, 44, became instantly infatuated with Hall, 45, when they began working together on the set of the successful, Ice Cube-produced film franchise. However, Hall was not immediately enthusiastic about dating a fellow high-profile movie star, according to an unnamed inside source.
The source also told the Daily Mail that Hall wanted to wanted to wait until the film production was finished in summer 2015 before romantically engaging herself with the Chicago-bred hip hop legend.
“Regina wasn’t interested in dating a fellow actor. She’s always shied away from idea of being with one of her co-stars. But Common was persistent and finally won her over,” the source told the Daily Mail.
However, when production on the 2016 all-star film was completed, the pair began their whirlwind romance immediately. Apparently, Hall and Common are enjoying being head-over-heels in love with each other nowadays.
“This is the happiest anyone has ever seen him. He’s a hopeless romantic and after several failed relationships, he lost faith in love. But Regina inspires him and has renewed his hope in love. It’s so beautiful to see,” added the inside source.
Common has had his fair share of high-profile relationships with celebrity women. Erykah Badu, Taraji P Henson, and Serena Williams are a three women in the spotlight who have suited Common’s fancy in the past. Hopefully, the “Used to Love H.E.R.” hit maker has found his match for the long haul.
