The surprising pair went public with their romance in February, and Pro Green even risked his reputation by making a brief cameo in an episode of Mille's series Made In Chelsea.
Millie, 22, opened up about the relationship to Look magazine this month, explaining what attracted her to the rapper.
'He’s so talented and the kindest person I’ve ever met,' she said. 'He still mystifies me.'

Asked if he fit the bill for the 'bad boy' she once described as her type, the reality star cringed at her words. 'I’m never going to live that down! After everything he’s been through in his life, he really could be a bad person but he’s not.'
While the inseparable pair are clearly enamoured with one another, Miss Mackintosh is taking things one day at a time.
'I’m only 22! I’m not thinking about that at the moment, but I’m really excited for the future,' she said.
