If you’re a fan of social media IT girl, Emma Chamberlain—whose outfits and ‘summer uniform’ basically shaped our whole capsule wardrobe this year—you may very well be wondering about her love life. Especially after a certain someone just made an appearance on her Insta, as they debuted the cutest, Halloween couples costumes. So, here’s what we know about Emma Chamberlain’s boyfriend!

Emma Chamberlain is in a relationship with singer Tucker Pillsbury, aka Role Model and has been for some time now, after the pair set the internet into a frenzy after Emma starred in (and seemingly inspired) his music video for NEVERLETYOUGO.
Since then they’ve made a number of appearances together, including Vanity Fair’s Oscars after-party and we’ve spied Tucker on Emma’s Instagram and vice versa. Emma even joined him at a number of locations on the European leg of his tour and don’t even get us started on their couples’ Halloween costume.
So, for anyone already totally invested in this pairing (*guilty*) here’s what we know about Emma Chamberlain’s boyfriend, Tucker Pillsbury and their relationship so far!
Who is Tucker Pillsbury?
Oh, we’re so glad you asked! Tucker is a singer/songwriter who goes by the name ‘Role Model.’ He shot to fame in 2017 with his EP, Arizona and has since then gone on to perform at Coachella 2022, alongside big names like Billie Eilish and The Weeknd.
In April 2022 he released his debut album Rx and announced his world tour—which, as mentioned Emma has joined him for a number of his European shows. Couple goals!
Social media-wise, you can follow him as ‘Role Model’ on Insta, where he already has over 600k followers!
How old is Tucker Pillsbury?
Tucker is 25 years old, making him four years older than Emma—who turned 21 on May 22nd, 2022
In case you’re interested in their zodiac compatibility, Tucker’s birthday is May 15th, which makes him a Taurus and Emma a Gemini.
What are Tucker Pillsbury’s tattoos?
Like Emma, Tucker has several tattoos, especially on his arms and they’re worth a look if you need some tiny, micro tattoo inspo!
His tats include barbed wire, a ladder, a butterfly, a skull and even a bird cage, along with several other inks scattered across Tucker’s torso and legs.
When did Emma Chamberlain and Tucker Pillsbury start dating?
Despite being very open with her day-to-day life, thanks to her YouTube channel, Emma is understandably very private about her love life, so particular dates for when things began are pretty scarce.
It’s unknown how long they’ve been together but Emma confirmed she was dating Tucker on the Call Her Daddy podcast in January 2022. Emma also revealed that her longest relationship was a year and a half but she didn’t confirm if this was with Tucker.
She did however give fans a glimpse into their relationship dynamic, saying: “Being best friends with your significant other is the best f–king thing ever.”
Much like spidey co-stars Tom Holland and Zendaya, these two have really captured the hearts of fans, and every time there’s even a hint of them together, or on each other socials, it’s a major moment.
In Tucker’s interview with GQ (opens in new tab), he revealed how fans sussed out that they were dating in the first place. He explained that after he commented on one of her Instagram posts, fans quickly discovered that her parents were following him—which is definitely a dead giveaway!
He also shared how they met, saying that he just DM’d her on Instagram and after texting back and forth for weeks, they finally hung out and played Fortnite at her apartment.
He then said: “She said ‘I love you’ a week into our relationship, and loving her back changed something in my brain. I wouldn’t say it cured my depression completely, but I was suddenly going outside, working out, and taking care of myself for the first time.
“I knew I was in love with her before I met her. I can judge people well online, and I knew I loved her because of little things she did, like the way she blinks and shit. It’s stupid little things! I felt like I knew her. She reminded me of myself.”—UM, we’re obsessed.
The couple went red carpet official in March 2022 at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, looking as cool as ever!
