Raptors center Serge Ibaka and his actress girlfriend Pearl Thusi rang in the New Year together.  Which isn’t all that unexpected, they are a couple after all.

What was unexpected, was the two of them sharing parts of the evening on social media that included one another in them.  The couple has been spotted together as far back as July, but it’s usually on someone else’s social media account.

Maybe they’ve decided to take a new approach in the new year.  

Pearl shared a picture of herself with Serge, but had his face covered up.  We know it’s him from his outfit. 

Serge later shared a video of the dinner they enjoyed with friends and he made sure to get Pearl in it.

Ibaka’s 2019 is off to a pretty good start.
