Summer lovin’ — Austin Mahone is having a blast.

Yeppers. The Mmm Yeah singer seems to be getting serious with his latest flame, Miami personal trainer/fitness model Katya Elise Henry.

We can see the attraction. On Instagram, Henry — who has a whoppng 2.6 millon followers — likes to take selfies, or might we say “belfies,” as in pictures snapped from behind. Ok there are other more innocent gym-centric ones, too.

And that social media app is exactly where they first connected.

“I mean, it’s a classic new generation kind of meet up thing,” Mahone told E! News during DJ Irie Weekend’s Aquafina IWXII BBQ Beach Bash Pool Party on Saturday at the Shelbourne Wyndham Hotel. “It’s crazy. I just think how funny it would be if I tell my kids one day I met her through Instagram.” Does he mean “our kids?” OK, whatever, it’s young love and let’s embrace it.

The two have a lot in common beside geography (Mahone’s part-time base is the Fort Lauderdale area). They work out together, cook together and travel together.

“I like how adventurous she is because whenever I want to take a trip, she is down to go anywhere in like a drop of a hat!” he told the site. “We both want to go to Costa Rica.” And they recently returned from a trip to the Bahamas.

Though Mahone said he indeed loved Henry, he wisely added, “I am taking it really slow.”

His last serious girlfriend was Fifth Harmony singer Camila Cabello. The two broke up in late 2014.
