Simone Ashley Seemingly Goes Instagram Official With Tino Klein
While Kate Sharma’s love life played out on screen in season two of “Bridgerton,” Simone Ashley’s relationships have been much more private in real life. That is until Ashley, who plays Sharma in the Netflix series, seemingly confirmed her romance with Constantin Klein by posting a black and white photo of the pair laughing, leaning in and noses touching, on Instagram on March 21.
The photo was taken by photographer Greg Williams at the BAFTAs Netflix afterparty at the Chiltern Firehouse in February. Ashley captioned her post, “@gregwilliamsphotography thank you for taking one of my favourite photos ❤️.” The “Bridgerton” star wore an Alexandre Vauthier look with a top held together only by crystals to the event. Once she posted the previously unseen photo, fans immediately began wondering about her mystery man. And now his identity has been revealed.
Klein, who goes by Tino, according to the Evening Standard, is the CEO of the GP Ice Race, a new winter event in Austria. It is unclear how long the couple have been dating. Reps for Ashley did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s request for comment on her new relationship.
It’s not the first time Ashley has posted Klein on her Instagram, although previous photos were more subtle. The “Sex Education” star shared two cryptic posts in December. The first featured a Polaroid photo of Klein blowing out candles on his birthday cake on Dec. 19. The second, shared on Dec. 29, included Ashley serving serious Bond girl vibes in a mountainous location with Klein. She captioned that post: “My pooch and snowman in the mountains x.” And now it seems her “snowman” has officially been confirmed – and it’s melted our hearts.
