Choosing to spend their date night together, Olivia Dunne and Paul Skenes, both avid Tigers supporters, headed out for a fun-filled evening. Olivia Dunne was featured in Paul Skenes’ Instagram photo after he was selected by the Pirates in the 2023 MLB Draft. Watching LSU’s 34-31 win against Arkansas in Baton Rouge was a source of delight for the couple.
‘Back in the boot’ was the caption given to the picture by Paul Skenes. This event is thought to be the initial instance of him being seen together with Dunne. Olivia Dunne, who has recently entered her final year at LSU, stated, “My heart.”
Before the game started, the 20-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model captured an image of herself and posted it on Instagram, where her 4.4 million followers could see it. Olivia Dunne, someone who really loves and supports, expressed her excitement about the game today.
In the photo, she is seen donning a yellow dress alongside white cowboy boots. After announcing it a month ago, Paul Skenes took to social media to confirm his relationship with Olivia Dunne in a recent post.
Paul Skenes discussed the increased bond they have formed as a result of receiving more focus during the conversation with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. He said sometimes, it can be annoying to have to go somewhere. It is very likely that if any of us went alone in Baton Rouge, we would meet people who ask for a picture or a signature.
“It’s amazing to be able to talk about this. She understands. My utmost wish is for her to be able to join us at a baseball game and have a wonderful experience. It really bothers me. I can’t control it. She also does not. I have hope that as I make progress towards higher levels, things will get better, but it is something I hope for her,” Skenes noted.
