The couple met in school although they only got together in 2015, spending most of 2016 travelling the world during his year off from music. After finishing a degree in molecular biology at Durham University in England, she studied management at Duke University in the United States, which allowed her to pursue her passion for hockey as part of the university's prestigious Blue Devils team, the Mail said.

The two began dating in 2015. She now works as a senior consultant in risk advisory at accounting firm Deloitte, according to DailyMail.com. The pair was also spotted in Vegas that same year partying with Calvin Harris. He told Beats 1's Zane Lowe that "the catalyst of taking a year off was also the fact that my partner quit her job in NY, which she's now got back in London, which is really cool".

And discussing his time line, he told OK!

She has worked in the Wall Street financial district of NY, before finally shifting base to her motherland England.
