Kelsey Merrit is looking very much in love with her boyfriend, Olympic gold medalist Conor Dwyer. Instagram

Her dream job wasn't the only thing Kelsey Merritt found in the US: she also found love. 

On Thursday, she shared a photo of her and her boyfriend, two-time Olympic gold medal winner Conor Dwyer, getting cozy with one another at a Vanity Fair party in New York.

Their romantic night-out came nearly a week after Merritt received news that she will become the first Filipino woman to walk the Victoria's Secret fashion show this fall. 

This is also the first time Merritt shared a photo with Dwyer on her Instagram since the announcement. 

It remains unclear when Merritt started dating Dwyer, but she began being more open about their relationship in August when they went on a vacation to Japan.
