Olivia Dunne held hands with MLB pitcher boyfriend Paul Skenes as they watched LSU’s 48-18 win over Auburn Saturday.
The collegiate gymnast and TikTok sensation, 21, made a rare public appearance with her boyfriend, former LSU baseball star Skenes, as they cheered on the Tigers at Tiger Stadium.
Dunne, who boasts 4.4 million Instagram followers, reposted a video of the couple, who have been dating for a few months, in the stands.
The camera panned over the sea of purple and yellow in the crowd to Dunne and Skenes holding hands.
The social media influencer pumped her hand in the air and cheered when she noticed the camera on her, while Skenes had a more subdued reaction and simply smiled.

The social media influencer enjoyed tailgating with her gymnastics teammates on Saturday
Earlier in the day, Dunne, who celebrated her 21st birthday last month, had posted a mirror selfie of herself from LSU’s gymnastics facility.
She showed off her game day outfit as she posed in a white romper that zipped all the way up the front with a purple ‘Geaux’ button pinned to her chest.
Dunne also enjoyed a tailgate with her gymnastics teammates ahead of the football game, sharing a photo of the athletes to her story.
Skenes, who is an emerging baseball talent and was chosen first in the 2023 MLB Draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates, confirmed that he and Dunne are an item in August and made a passionate plea to fans to give her space when she attends his games.
Rumors of the paid has been swirling but speculation intensified when she was seen at his debut for the Bradenton Marauders in August.
Speaking to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, he opened up on their relationship and said: ‘It’s nice, for sure. It can be a pain in the butt sometimes, to be honest, in terms of actually going somewhere.
‘If one of us went out in Baton Rouge by ourselves, there’s probably gonna be someone there asking for something — picture, autograph, whatever.
‘It’s nice to be able to have that conversation. She does get it. I do wish she could come to a baseball game and just enjoy it. It does irk me.
‘I don’t have any control over it. She really doesn’t either. I’m sure it’ll get better as I go up levels, but that’s something I want for her.’
Dunne’s meteoric rise to fame means she cannot attend her classes in person at LSU.

In July, she told Elle: ‘There were some scares in the past, and I just want to be as careful as possible. I don’t want people to know my daily schedule and where I am.’
Skenes, a pitcher, signed a record $9.2m deal with the Pirates after being picked first in the MLB Draft.
Dunne, meanwhile, already has an estimated wealth of around $2.3m due to a number of endorsement deals.
Her fame has risen hugely this year in no small part due to those deals. She also appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition.
