The couple have been dating since 2018

"We're really close; we were close from day one. With me moving in with Stacey - because that was her family home - and the kids, you become such a tight unit. We are getting closer every day."

Max shot to fame as a member of The Wanted. The band had two number 1 singles in the UK and reached the top 3 in the US Billboard charts. After the pop group took a break, Max moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career and starred in the 6th season of Glee as Clint. More recently, he has returned to music as a solo artist.
