“Plane bae” Euan Holden has teased that things are going well between himself and the mystery woman, Helen, whom he met on a flight to Dallas this week.
The Internet became fascinated with Holden’s budding romance after Rosey Blair posted live updates during the flight on social media.
Blair was traveling home to Dallas, Texas from New York City on Alaska Airlines when she asked a woman to trade seats so she could sit near her boyfriend. She told her boyfriend she hoped the woman’s new seat partner might be the love of her life.
The hilarious thread of posts that followed have been liked over 880,000 times as of Friday afternoon and the story made national headlines.
Holden, who is a model and a former pro soccer player, told the Today Show Friday what he thinks about the woman he sat next to.
“She’s a very very very lovely girl. Very attractive and beautiful and has a lot to say for herself, very intelligent,” he said. “From the moment we buckled our seatbelts until we touched down on the ground, the conversation just kind of took off.”
Holden has also been teasing the world with coy Instragram posts alluding to the new lady in his life.
“Sat here thinking about how different the day would of been if I missed my flight,” he captioned one shirtless pic.
“Can’t beat that feeling when you get to see her again,” he wrote beside another.
Holden’s brother, Fox Sports correspondent Stu Holden, teased on Twitter that he was “trying to find out if I’ll have a sister in law soon.”
So is there a fairy-tale ending in sight for the famous lovebirds? “Only time will tell, I think,” Holden said.
