Most recently, she attended the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony with him back in November 2022, which she called "an experience I will never forget."
In February 2023, though, she officially told the world that she and McClintock are taking things to the next level.

After graduation, McClintock began working at the software company Scout, where he is currently an enterprise growth executive, per People.
