The couple, who have been dating for two years, made their relationship official in 2016, just three months after Button split with his first wife Jessica Michibata. Button married Michibata in 2014, but ended his relationship with the Japanese model just 12 months after their wedding in Hawaii. Before he married Michibata, Button was engaged to singer-actor Louise Griffiths. Button now competes in Japan's Super GT Series for Honda, for whom he raced in Formula 1 between 2006 and 2008.
