Jake T. Austin is a now 21-year-old child actor probably best known for appearing on the Disney Channel series Wizards of Waverly Place as younger brother to Selena Gomez’s character from 2007 to 2012. Danielle Caesar is a 22-year-old fan of Jake T. Austin who has been tweeting at the Hotel For Dogs star since at least late 2009. Through the power of serendipity and social media, however, the two have recently found love with one another, as evidenced by this Instagram post captioned, “I’m crazy for her,” that Austin tweeted out to his 1.4 million followers a few weeks ago.
The Daily Mail has a whole rundown of the timeline since that first, fateful tweet in 2009. After tweeting at her idol obsessively for a few years about everything from marriage plans to decorating her bedroom with his likeness, the two finally met at a New York Planet Hollywood in December of 2011, at which point Austin finally followed Caesar back on Twitter.
And now, four years later, the two are somehow a couple. Suffice to say, their romance has given hope to the Beliebers and Directioners of the world, and whatever the hell fans of that cutesy Australian pop punk band call themselves, who came out in FULL FORCE on Twitter.
If only I could go back in time and invent Twitter, maybe I would have had a shot with Empire Records-era Ethan Embry. You never know!
