After meeting for the first time on the set of "Sex/Life" in February 2020, sparks immediately flew between Demos and Shahi. In a June 2021 interview with People, Shahi opened up about getting to know her "Sex Life" costar, saying, "We met in the makeup trailer and we just got on instantly. We had the exact same taste in music. We had the same taste in whiskey and tequilas and I was really blown away by him just as a person and all I knew was that I wanted more." For the rest of 2020, the two kept the status of their relationship under wraps until they seemingly confirmed they were dating on New Year's Eve on Instagram.
Working together is a significant part of the pair's relationship, and the couple doesn't shy away from sharing snippets of their love together on social media or praising one another for their work. Demos gushed about Shahi to E! News in February 2023, telling the outlet, "Outside of how I feel about her personally, she's such an incredible talent that I'm watching and I'm learning . . . To be able to work with someone of her caliber, I feel very lucky, fortunate. But then also, I love her so much. There's a lot of layers to it."
Similarly, Shahi called Demos one of her "all-time favorite scene partners" and revealed that working with him is easy because "I just have to look at him and 99 percent of my work is done for me."
