“Chris and Dakota arrived together in Chris’ car. They met up with friends and had a fun night. They both seemed very happy. They were flirty, and also left the restaurant together.”

By mid-2018, there were regular sightings of the couple near Chris’s home in Malibu. A source speaking to People stated;

“Chris lives in Malibu and Dakota seems to love hanging out there. They occasionally go for dinner with friends, but mostly have friends over at home. They go to the beach together, and walks around the neighborhood. They seem to enjoy sharing a quiet life. It does seem they are getting more serious.”

In October 2018, it was reported that the couple was hosting a gender reveal party at Chris’ home. The reports turned out to be false, with Dakota confirming a month later that she wasn’t pregnant. Rumors also emerged stating that Martin wanted to propose to Dakota.

Although the rumors turned out to be false, they showed that things had gotten quite serious between the couple.

The source described Dakota as ‘more of a city girl’ but added that she was adjusting to life in Malibu. “She seems to enjoy it as much as Chris does,” the source said. “They both love the outdoors and often take beach strolls.”

On top of dining at local restaurants, Dakota and Chris have been enjoying meals with his ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow. Johnson is reportedly part of Martin’s blended family. “It’s obvious that everyone still gets along great,” the source said.
