Arnold Schwarzenegger's son and his new girlfriend Abby have been keeping mum about their blossoming romance, until now. Patrick's photo is the first reference the actor has made to his model love on social media.

Abby, meanwhile, has only shared one other photo of the couple together. The picture, posted two weeks ago, showed the fresh-faced blonde and her dapper beau cuddled up together at the University of Southern California, where Patrick studies.

Patrick was previously linked to Miley Cyrus, who he dated for five months. The pair ended their romance in April 2015, with a source telling People: "It's not a break. It's done. They're just in two different places in their lives – he's in college and she's focused on her music and career."

Miley, who is in an on-off relationship with her ex-fiancé Liam Hemsworth, said that she was happy to be single after the split.

"I'm finally okay being alone," she told Time. "There are times in my life where I've had boyfriends or girlfriends. And there are times where I just love being with myself and don't want to give part of myself away to someone else. My future doesn't rely on having a partner."
