On Monday, JoJo Siwa introduced her girlfriend on social media to mark their one-month anniversary, ET reports.

In her post, Siwa wrote, "After being my best friend for over a year, January 8th 2021 I got to start calling this exceptional human my Girlfriend... and Since then I've been the happiest I have ever been!" Siwa wrote. "She seriously is the most loving, supportive, happiest, protective, and just the most beautiful perfect person in the world. And I get to call her mine! Happy one month to my girl! I love you more and more everyday!??"

With more photos appearing on Twitter:

The "Dance Moms" star came out in January in another social media post, after wearing a T-shirt that said "Best Gay Cousin Ever" that she had initially posted to her Close Friends Story on Instagram and then decided to make public. Last week, Siwa shared a little about her unnamed "perfect" girlfriend with Jimmy Fallon in an appearance on "The Tonight Show."

The 17-year-old hasn't yet clarified her sexual orientation and/or gender identity. In a thank-you Instagram post to her fans last month, Siwa shared, "somebody said, 'What label are you?' And you know, I have thought about this and the reason I am not ready to say this answer is because I really don't know this answer. I think humans are awesome. I think humans are really incredible people."
