However, they have actually been in a relationship for around five years after they started dating in 2017.
But ever since we all became aware of their romance, the two have barely acknowledged each other’s existence in public. Like, at all.
In fact, in 2017 Dakota shut down a question about Chris during a chat with Tatler magazine, saying: “I'm not going to talk about it, but I am very happy.”
But last December, Dakota tossed us a crumb by giving us a very brief insight into their relationship for the first time ever.
In an interview with Elle UK, Dakota admitted that her and Chris’s long-standing dedication to privacy is something that she loves about their dynamic.
"We've been together for quite a while," she shared at the time. "And we go out sometimes, but we both work so much that it's nice to be at home and be cozy and private."
Acknowledging that they rarely go out together, Dakota added: “Most of the partying takes place inside my house.”
A video of the moment quickly went viral at the time, and showed Chris giving the shoutout as he introduced Coldplay’s collaboration with BTS, “My Universe.”

Speaking from the stage, Chris told fans: “This is about my universe, and she’s here.” He then pointed at Dakota, who was proudly watching her partner from the front row of the venue’s mezzanine section.
Now fans have been treated to another rare insight into Dakota and Chris’s relationship, and this moment is even more personal as it took place inside their home.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s Sundance Film Festival is virtual, which means that celebrities can remain in the comfort of their own homes and log in to promote their work over Zoom.
On Sunday, Dakota attended a virtual Q&A for her new movie Cha Cha Real Smooth, but she appeared to suffer technical issues and had to get Chris to help her set up.
In a very brief video, which has been circulating online, Dakota can be seen giggling profusely as Chris “peaces out” of the room after offering his assistance.
Chris Martin y Dakota Johnson son la pareja mas linda que existe 🖤
In the clip, the Q&A’s host can be heard saying: “Hello, welcome, welcome,” as Chris flashes the peace sign at the camera.
Chris then gets up from his spot beside his girlfriend and edges out of the room, quietly closing the door behind him as he waves goodbye.
Dakota tries to contain her laughter but continues to giggle to herself after Chris leaves, seemingly embarrassed by the technical blip.
Those lucky enough to be watching the Q&A were obsessed with the sweet moment, with one fan tweeting: “Chris Martin just peaced out of the room while Dakota Johnson laughed during the Cha Cha Real Smooth Q&A at Sundance, I’m crying!!!”
