Everything We Know About Dance Moms' Nia Sioux And Gabriel Hawkins' Relationship

Fans have been watching the stunning transformation of Dance Moms' Nia Sioux for years. Sioux, one of the original members of "Dance Moms" and Abby Lee Miller's competition team, has certainly grown since her reality TV days. Now, she is pursuing a degree in American Literature at UCLA and lives in an apartment in Los Angeles with her beloved family. Apart from studying for finals, Sioux is also making moves in her career as an actor and singer. 

Sioux appeared on the beloved soap opera "The Bold and the Beautiful" as Emma Barber before her character was killed off in 2019. She also acted in the 2019 web series "Sunnyside Up." Besides some other small TV and movie roles, Sioux dropped a single in 2020 titled "Low Key Love" and started a podcast called "Adulting with Teala and Nia" with co-host Teala Dunn. But her career is only part of her journey into womanhood.

Dating and love are also a part of Sioux's adult life. Bryce Xavier was Sioux's first boyfriend. They met in 2017 at a dance call and were smitten with each other immediately. The two dated for only a year before breaking up, but they ended on friendly terms, as they were best friends before they even started dating. Now Sioux is dating Gabriel Hawkins, and the world is trying to figure out who this guy is and the details of their relationship. 

The couple celebrates each other on social media

Gabriel Hawkins is a modern-day mystery man, and Nia Sioux's fans have been combing through TikTok and Instagram to learn more about the lovebirds' relationship. They are exclusive, as Sioux shared a video on Instagram that told the story of Hawkins making the first move and asking her to be his girlfriend. But, besides that little nugget of gold, not much is known about the ins and outs of their relationship.

It seems the two met in 2022 at UCLA, where they both attend school. Though, it's unknown what Hawkins is studying. By browsing through his Instagram feed, it appears he likes to travel. Pictures from Rome and the Amalfi Coast pop out among other photos of him enjoying his life with his friends and beloved girlfriend. In June 2022, he posted a birthday tribute to Sioux, in part, "Happy birthday to the best girlfriend a guy could ever ask for. I can't thank you enough for the huge impact you've made on my life. ... Thank you for being the most genuine and sweet person on this planet."

What will the future hold for Sioux and Hawkins?

Nia Sioux's November 2022 post celebrated Hawkins' 21st birthday. She said, "Happy birthday to the person who brings out the best in me. Home is wherever you are. Love you more than words, Gabe. Now let's celebrate!!!! 21!!!" From the timeline, it can be deduced that Gabriel is an Aries. That's good news, as Nia is a Gemini. According to Astrotalk, these signs make a good love match partly because they are both understanding, positive, and love freedom.

Sioux and Hawkins post pictures together on their individual Instagrams but do not reveal too many details, which is very reminiscent of the opening lyrics to Sioux's song, "Low Key Love," where she says, "I want that low key love, don't you go postin' bout us, yeah, that old school love that's what I've been dreaming of." Maybe Gabriel Hawkins is the guy Sioux's been dreaming of. To her fans: keep following this duo, as only time will tell if he's the one.
