Rebel, who has recently been flaunting her slimmed-down and toned-up figure after losing more than 75lbs, showed off her winning smile while posing next to her new girlfriend and resting her hand on Ramona’s arm in the sweet Instagram snap.
‘I thought I was searching for a Disney Prince… but maybe what I really needed all this time was a Disney Princess,’ she wrote, adding heart and rainbow emojis and the hashtag, ‘#loveislove.’
Following her announcement, a friend of the actress told People, ‘Rebel’s in an amazing place and I’ve never seen her happier.’
Although Thursday marked her public coming out, Rebel was previously accompanied by her girlfriend Ramona at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in March, and the two put on a glamorous display as matching blondes on the red carpet.

Short-lived: Rebel’s most recent confirmed partner was Jacob Busch, of the Anheuser-Busch brewing company family, but they broke up by February 2021 after four months together; seen in 2020
Brief fling? Earlier this year, the comic star had been rumored to be dating the Australian tennis player Matt Reid (pictured), though that relationship was never confirmed; seen in Sydney in December
Rebel’s most recent confirmed partner was Jacob Busch, of the Anheuser-Busch brewing company family.
She and the heir began dating shortly before the coronavirus pandemic began, and they made their red carpet debut in Monaco, but the relationship only lasted four months and ended around February 2021.
Earlier this year, the comic star had been rumored to be dating the Australian tennis player Matt Reid, though that relationship was never confirmed.
Back in November, Rebel told People that she was having a ‘Hot Girl Summer,’ after the song by Megan Thee Stallion, adding that she was ‘currently single and looking for the right person.’
‘From every relationship, you learn stuff all about yourself and what you’re looking for,’ she said in a bit of foreshadowing. ‘I haven’t quite met my match just yet, but here’s hoping.’
In her May cover story for the publication, the actress spoke about how she wasn’t as concerned with romance in her first couple decades.
‘It’s not an exaggeration to say no one was really interested in dating me, especially in my 20s,’ she said. ‘I had a snaggle tooth. I was a catch if people really got to know me, but there was nobody really interested.
‘But in a way that allowed me to not only have this amazing career and come up out of Australia, out of nowhere and get two degrees and then come to America and crush it. Would I have been able to do that if I had a serious relationship? Probably in my love life I was meant to be a late bloomer anyways,’ she said.
