Why Is This Is Us Star Chrissy Metz Keeping Her Boyfriend’s Identity A Secret??

no title

This is… sneaky!

Chrissy Metz is one of the breakout stars of NBC‘s This Is Us — and one of our picks for stars to watch in 2017 — but she has a lot to celebrate off camera, too!

Last month, the Golden Globe nominee revealed she has a new beau, but chose to keep his identity a secret.

And on the red carpet at the Artios event on Thursday, the 36-year-old revealed… that she doesn’t plan on revealing her man’s identity anytime soon!

Speaking to People, she said:

“Eventually ├óΓé¼┬ª you’ll all probably get to meet him. But I just feel like I’ve got to figure this out first, before I’m like, ‘Let me bring my boyfriend.'”

Hollywood comes first. We respect that. Ha!

While Metz said things are “going great” with her significant other, she sympathized with her man for having to deal with the drama that comes with dating a creative type, continuing:

“I can’t imagine how it must be to date an actress. So God bless him.”

The actress added that it’s hard to balance the new relationship and her blossoming TV career, explaining:

“I’m just weaning him in, as I’m weaning myself in. It’s a lot. It’s a lot of undertaking. I’m not going to be able to pay attention to him. I’m like, ‘Babe, sorry, sorry. Just a second babe. Hold on babe.’ Eventually it’ll be like a no-brainer.”

Awwww! We can’t wait to meet him!

And don’t worry, being the guy holding the purse worked out for Chris Pratt!

Do YOU think it’s hard to balance a new relationship when your career is taking off?
