Maya Jama has celebrated her boyfriend Ben Simmons’ birthday in the sweetest way as she shared loved-up photos of the pair of them.

The couple recently confirmed their romance after being seen out at Wimbledon together and seem to be going from strength to strength, with the presenter passionately kissing her basketball player beau.

Sharing the photo booth snaps to Instagram, Maya wrote: ‘Happy birthday to youuuu @bensimmons.’

In one of the photos, Maya, 26, sat on Ben’s lap and kissed him, while another saw her flashing up a peace sign.

In the final two photos, the star struck a pose with Ben throwing his arms around her.

Maya also gave fans a glimpse into Ben’s celebrations as he turns 25, with the star revealing she’d enlisted a mariachi band to play for him – as you do.

‘Happy birthday!’ she laughed as the band played, with Ben giggling.

Celebrity Juice star Maya is gradually opening up about her relationship after keeping it on the downlow.

At Wimbledon, she and Ben were seen sharing a kiss, confirming their romance after speculation.

Then, during a recent Instagram Q&A, one curious fan was keen to know how Ben was doing, prompting Maya to reply with a selfie of them cosying up together. The TV star flashed a cute smile while only part of Ben’s face was on-show.

Maya was first linked to the sportsman, who previously dated Kendall Jenner, in 2019.

They sparked speculation they were romantically involved after they were both seen exiting Mayfair restaurant Sexy Fish within minutes of each other last month.

They tried to remain lowkey by leaving separately, but were both escorted out by Ben’s security team.

Meanwhile, Maya previously dated rapper Stormzy, with the pair splitting in 2019.

Looking back on the relationship last year, Maya said on Shopping With Keith Lemon: ‘I didn’t ever feel like a celebrity couple. Everyone else made it like that.

‘We just had a normal relationship. And then everyone was just talking about it. We met when we were like 20, before anyone cared about us.

‘Basically, I always said it was like a normal relationship but people wanted to look at it more and talk about it more.’
