Maddie Ziegler and Eddie Benjamin Were Totally Smitten at the "Bullet Train" Premiere
It was all love at the "Bullet Train" premiere. On Aug. 1, Maddie Ziegler and Eddie Benjamin made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Los Angeles screening of the movie, which hits theaters on Aug. 5. The couple shared a kiss and posed for photos together, looking cute in all-black outfits. Ziegler wore a cutout black gown with a bustier top and a thigh-high slit, and Benjamin wore a matching black silk button-down shirt and black slacks. They were one of the many couples at the "Bullet Train" premiere, with Dylan Sprouse and Barbara Palvin, Simu Liu and Jade Bender, and Joey King and Steven Piet also in attendance.
Ziegler has been in the spotlight for the last decade, but it's the first time we saw the former "Dance Moms" star all loved-up on the red carpet with her musician boyfriend. In fact, the two have been connected to each other since December 2019, when they were first spotted out and about. They appeared on the cover of Harper's Bazaar Singapore together in September 2021, and Ziegler shared that they were friends for about a year before their relationship turned romantic.
"It was so random. I was a fan of him on Instagram and we started talking," Ziegler shared about how they first met on Instagram before they eventually met up at The Grove in Los Angeles. "He got on a flight back to Australia that very night. It was so quick, and we were friends for over a year before we got together." In the same interview, Benjamin said, "I was just so drawn to Maddie as a person. She's so warm and loving and artistic."
Benjamin is an Australian singer and producer who has worked with artists like Meghan Trainor, Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, and more. They've supported each other throughout their career milestones over the last few years — Ziegler starred in Benjamin's music video for "Speechless" in 2021.
