Actor and singer Luke Evans has exchanged cute Pride messages with his “better half”, art director Rafa Olarra.

The Welsh-born start first started posting photos of the pair of them together at the start of the year. Evans seemed to suggest the pair were a couple and Olarra posted a Valentine’s message calling Evans his “better half.”

Now the actor has urged his followers to “choose love” in a Pride message on Instagram, featuring the pair of them.

“Always try and be the best, most authentic version of yourself,” Evans wrote in the caption.

“Hold that person tight. Smile, breath deep, stand tall and be proud!!! #pride #pridemonth #chooselove #lovewins”

Olarra had posted his own message on Sunday, wishing his followers “Happy pride day” and pining for his “other half”.
