In an interview with Teen Vogue, the 19-year-old model and social media superstar (who currently has over 6 million TikTok followers and 3 million Instagram followers) confirmed that she is bisexual after causing a stir earlier this year with a cheeky TikTok video.
“I want to announce that I’m bisexual, and I’m now proud to be a part of the LGBTQ+ community,” Ponton told Teen Vogue.
She also opened up about how she wasn’t exposed to many queer people growing up in Naples, Florida, and it wasn’t until she moved to Los Angeles that she realized being bisexuality was even a possibility for her. Ponton then revealed that she now has a girlfriend named Kaila and that the two met on TikTok before they officially started seeing each other back in January of this year.
“I met my girlfriend on TikTok and became thoroughly obsessed with her,” she said. “She actually curved me for a week before first answering!”
