It’s “fresh,” Rippon describes his new relationship with Jussi-Pekka Kajaala, who lives in Finland. “I’m fresh!”
Rippon tells People the pair have “been talking for the past seven months” after meeting Tindr, and then “started to hang out a little bit more, because we were both really busy.”
Then earlier this month, they made it official. And earlier this week, they went public with it.
So who is this Jussi-Pekka Kajaala guy anyway?
Well, unlike his super famous boyfriend, he’s not a world class Olympic figure skater. According to his Facebook page, he’s just a regular guy who works for a real estate firm. And based on his Instagram photos, he appears to enjoy traveling, working out, relaxing by the pool, and spending time with his adorable french bulldog.
