AceShowbiz - Odell Beckham Jr. and his rumored girlfriend Lauren Wood are finally Instagram official. After months of sparking dating rumors with their online flirting and several outings together, they have finally confirmed their relationship on his 27th birthday.
The model/actress gave the footballer a birthday shout-out on Tuesday, November 5 while sharing some of their pictures together. One blurry snap shows them dancing, while another sees Odell and Lauren embracing each other. There's also an intimate photo of the couple in bed.
The stunning model wrote in the caption, "Happy birthday @obj ! Your soul is pure gold . U know I can write lot about you, but I rather keep passing these love letters... Ceasar home... PS this blurry will always be my fave pic of us bc wtf is going on lol yumiii af."
Odell, meanwhile, marked his special day by sharing his photos with a birthday cake. He blew a candle on the cake in one picture and appeared to make a wish in another shot. He's featured alone, with no hint of his girlfriend in the images. The NFL star simply captioned it with his birth date, "11/05/92."
Odell and Lauren have been to be romantically for months. The "Wild 'N Out" star has been spotted supporting the wide receiver at Cleveland Browns games this season.
When people began to notice Odell's relationship with Lauren, some people criticized the athlete for dating someone who looks like a white woman. She, however, in fact is a black woman. "Isn't it common for a black man to get rich, then go marry a white girl??? @obj we aren't surprised AT ALL love," one critic posted online.
Responding to the criticism, Odell wrote back to the haters, "So ppl can't be happy anymore!!? Whole world gotta be about color. And in fact Lo u got some explaining to do, 'u meannn to tell me..that ur not....white!!!? Awwwwh the deception."
