Reports of their relationship emerged in November 2018, when The Sun cited anonymous sources who said that the pair began dating in September 2018. That same month, the Daily Mail reported that Mozzi ended his engagement with former fiancée Dara Huang a few months before he and Beatrice began dating. Mozzi and Huang have a son together, who the Daily Mail reported was aged 2 at the time of its November report.
