“We went on a date in London,” Van Ness began in an Instagram post caption, “which turned into more dates whilst I was on comedy tour.

“At the end of that time I was taking my mum, aunt and friends on a mini-break to Amsterdam. I wanted to come with but, was it a bit intense to ask Mark to come after a couple weeks worth’s of dates to come meet my mom and friends on a mini-break?

“Maybe so, but something about Mark felt different and I’m quite sure he felt the same 🥰

“Here’s some of my favourite moments together and here’s to making many more 🏳️‍🌈 Thanks so much for your support and love for us!! Love y’all!!”
