The two met at the airport during a flight to London in August 2018. “For me, [it was] interest at first sight, but it’s hard to fall in love with someone before you even know their name,” Steve explained to Us Weekly. “I think love at first sight is lust at first sight. It was definitely that, but there’s so much more than just how someone looks, I think, when it comes to finding a partner for life.”
Steve and Luiza later went on their first date in London and then met up again in Monte Carlo and Ibiza. “He said, ‘Oh, I think we have a problem.’ I said, ‘Why?’” Luiza recalled of their night out in Ibiza. “He said, ‘I think we’re in love with each other.’”
The couple moved in together to New York City in February, and Steve admitted that things are "moving quickly" in their relationship. “I couldn’t expect falling in love with someone from another country, moving in together, having our little family,” Steve shared. “I think I’m more myself with her than I am by myself, if that makes sense. I become who I used to be as a kid, more fun-loving.”
Steve actually opened up to Us Weekly about what he's looking for in a partner not too long before he found the woman of his dreams in June 2018. "I want what every guy wants: someone you connect with on an emotional level," he said. "[I'd like a woman] that shares similar values. Likes dogs. Helps me be a better person. I help them be a better person. That I’m physically attracted to and want to have sex with all the time. That’s it."
