In March 2023, Appleton confirmed their relationship publicly on The Drew Barrymore Show. “I’m very happy. Very much in love, and I feel very grateful to be able to share my time with someone very special,” Appleton remarked during the show.

It’s been a year of learning, growing, changing — yeah, just constant change. Life's always changing. Everything’s great.
