When Calls the Heart fans, it looks like life is imitating art for Erin Krakow ahead of season 11!

As viewers of the drama spent years speculating if the actress is dating one of her co-stars, Erin used the romantic holiday of Valentine’s Day to comment on the rumors ahead of the upcoming installment’s April 7 premiere. Posting a series of selfies alongside actor Ben Rosenbaum (who’s portrayed Hickam on the Hallmark show since season 1) on Instagram, she publicly revealed the two are, in fact, dating. What’s more, she couldn’t help but revel in the moment by gushing about their relationship.

“🫀,” she simply captioned the post on February 15, using an emoji of a real-life heart.

Given how fans have wondered if Erin and Ben were an item since early 2023, seeing the two confirm the news on social media had people screaming in the comments.

“Omg, this is a very sweet picture! ❤❤ Happy Valentine’s Day!” one person wrote on Instagram. “A hard launch! 😍🔥❤,” another excitedly declared. “I love how we have a real life Hope Valley of love. 💕,” a different follower added.

While this is the first time Erin is publicly acknowledging her love with Ben, she has alluded to their romance before. Back in January 2023, the two adopted a puppy named Willoughby, and she proudly showed off their shared pet on social media.

As for how Ben feels about Erin, he shared a screenshot of his phone lock screen in a Valentine’s Day Instagram tribute, featuring Erin hugging their dog. “First thing I see when I wake up. Last thing I see before sleep,” he romantically paid tribute in the caption. “Happy Valentines Day ❤️❤️.”

We’re absolutely obsessed with them!
