Sorry, ladies! Chadwick Boseman AKA the 'Black Panther' has found love off-screen with one lucky woman, Taylor Simone Ledward. Chad has done a great job at keeping his private life underwraps, so the news of his new girlfriend came as a shock to fans. During interviews he’s often refered to someone he calls his “lady,” but it hadn't been confirmed who the mystery woman was until now.

Here's everything we know about Chadwick Boseman's new relationship that you need to know:

  2. Chadwick's grandma spilled the beans on their relationship!

    "They respect each other," Taylor's grandmother told InTouch Weekly of the dating rumors. "She's very happy, and he is, too." In interviews, super-private Chadwick has referred to "a lady" in his life, but has never named her.

  3. Micheal B. Jordan approves of their union.

    Well, not exactly. But the 'Killmonger' did sit courtside next to the cute couple while grinning from ear to ear. Perhaps he was happy for his buddy's new found love!

  4. She's 13 years his junior.

    Chadwick Boseman is 40-years-old, while Taylor is 27-years-old. But age ain't nothing but a number, right?

  5. Taylor's Sister Had To Clapback At Fans Who Wanted To See Chad & Lupita Nyong'o Together

    One fan of the actor was checked by Boseman's girlfriend's sister after taking to the comments section under a post of him and his Black Panther love interest Lupita Nyong'o to share her wishes of them coupling up: "I wish they were a real couple. They look so cute together."

     Taylor's sister responded: "His real life queen is gorgeous, and together they embody true love. Not to mention they would make some beautiful babies!"

    Bloop!

  6. Taylor's a singer.

    Maybe now that she's dating a mega-movie star she can a feature on the 'Black Panther 2' soundtrack. Hmm...
