From NYC kisses to getting engaged: How Matty Healy and Gabbriette became a power couple

Never forget when he took her to Manchester and made her try a Greggs


It barely feels like yesterday when Taylor Swift was reportedly having a whirlwind romance with The 1975 frontman Matty Healy, but another whirlwind was around the corner with a far happier ending. Not long after Matty Healy split from Taylor Swift, a new romance was on the horizon with all-round it girl Gabbriette Bechtel. In just nine months, the two have gone from being papped to being engaged, so here’s a full relationship timeline for Matty Healy and Gabbriette now the two have announced their engagement publicly.

Wait… Who’s Gabbriette?

Gabbriette Bechtel is one of those gals who gets everywhere and you’re never quite sure where you know her from. Mostly because she’s gorgeous and looks like the coolest vibes on this earth. She first started getting known when she was a dancer in some music videos for Blood Orange, as well as modelling for some big names like Marc Jacobs and Diesel. I personally first became aware of her when she starred in I’m With The Band on Netflix, where Charli XCX formed a girl group called Nasty Cherry.

She’s now a kind of Julia Fox type figure. Like a 2024 socialite who just brings the vibes. Love her.
