Once upon a time, you would have put an announcement in the newspaper.

These days, a simultaneous social-media strike speaks more eloquently to the depth of your affection.

Amber Heard and Elon Musk have confirmed to their millions of social-media followers that they are an item by sharing a loved up picture of Musk with a big, red, kiss-shaped lipstick mark on his cheek.

In a co-ordinated strike, the two individuals both shared the same picture at the same time.

Heard captioned it ‘Cheeky.”

Rumors that the two are dating have been circulating for some time now.

Just last week, Heard’s father, David, told Grazia magazine, “Amber and Elon are both very serious about each other. She would love to get married. One of the things they want to do is settle down and have a family. They are making plans for that.”

The comments were swiftly dismissed by sources close to the couple, who are both recently divorced.

Heard’s split from the actor Johnny Depp, whom she accused of physically abusing her, was finalized in January, and Musk finalized his divorce from Talulah Riley (who he married twice) in November.

Heard and Musk were first spotted together at the Delano hotel in Miami in July, and again in London, however they have avoided publicly confirming the relationship until now.

Heard, 30 and Musk, 45 have spent several days together recently in Australia, where Heard is filming a new Superhero flick, Aquaman.

In other photos taken over the weekend, the pair were seen holding hands during an excursion into the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary in Australia with some of Musk’s six children.
