The twosome — referred to as Rydellington — shared how it all happened, who was the first of the family to find out and what’s next. Check it:
On how it happened: It was just like this relationship is going to happen whether I like it or not, or whether she likes it or not. Whoever decides that, whatever that is, it’s just going to happen. We had no choice. It was a volcano that had to erupt. (Ellington)
On the first to find out about their relationship: We tried to date on the DL. But Ryland figured it out! He said to Rydel, ‘Oh Ellington told me.’ And she was like, ‘What! Ellington told you?’ And then he did the same thing to me. Neither of us told him anything, but he got it out of us. Ross saw us holding hands [during a bonfire] and ran off. Rydel and I heard everyone whispering. We were like, it’s going down right now! They freaked out like I’ve never seen them freak out before – in a good way! They tackled me!
On their future: We’re always together, we get to go on tour together, we get to do everything together, and it’s so simple. (Rydel)
On if those Rydellington duets will ever come true: My favorite thing to listen to right now is alt pop, folky duets with a male and female singer. I think it’d be really cool to have something like that on the next album. Since the beginning, even before we were dating, fans were like ‘duet, please, please, please!’ They love the idea of Rydellington so much. (Rydel)
