In speaking with People, Kim explained that she was over the moon about her relationship. During the interview, she explained that the two of them had been spending their quarantine in Canada. “From the beginning, [Russ] and I felt like we needed to get out of town, so we came up to my house in Canada,” she said. Kim spent much of her early life in Vancouver.
Kim said that the two first started dating after Russell decided to travel to Vancouver to see her. At the time, they had largely communicated online. “It was very brave of him because we didn’t really know each other other than having a few meals together,” she said. “But he came and we got along great, and we’ve been together ever since!”
