For the event, Storm wore a stunning pink and red feathered dress with a plunging neckline while Shedeur kept it cool in a black Gucci suit.
While speaking about the 20-year-old college football player, who is the son of Pro Football Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders, the Euphoria star couldn’t help but gush about Shedeur.
“He’s super sweet, super talented,” she told Entertainment Tonight at the premiere. “I’m just glad to have him here supporting me.”
While the pair have kept their romance low-key, this isn’t the first time Storm has proudly cheered on her athlete boyfriend. Back in September, the actress took to Instagram to share photos of the two during his last team Jackson State’s season-opening game in Miami versus Florida A&M.
Alongside a carousel of photos, including one of the couple posing for a snap inside the locker room, Storm captioned the post, “2 can play this game!!!! congratulations @gojsutigersfb.”
Aside from her sweet romance, Storm also discussed her hopes for Euphoria‘s upcoming third season
“I literally know nothing—I don’t know when I’m going back, I don’t know what the scripts look like,” she told the outlet. “But I hope that season 3 has a lot of hope, a lot of joy, a lot of levity. Because, you know, we’ve done all of the emotions.”
Storm Reid shares she’ll support her boyfriend Shedeur Sanders during his football season.
Storm Reid promises to be her boyfriend Shedeur Sanders that come football season, she’ll be right there in the stands – in fact, she’ll be his biggest cheerleader.
“I will be for sure in the student section or wherever I am rooting for the Buffaloes,” she told Jimmy Kimmel during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Jan. 17. “Wearing the number and everything.”
And while Storm won’t be able to support Shedeur—who is in the process of transferring to the University of Colorado, where his dad Deion Sanders is coach—at every game, she added that she’s always there for him in spirit.
“Whether I’m there or not, I do support,” she continued. “I’m just glad to have him as a friend, and a confidant to support him. He supports me.”
Before Shedeur Sanders, Storm Reid dated Yara Shahidi’s younger brother Sayeed Shahidi.
Storm Reid and her ex-boyfriend, Sayeed Shahidi, made a cute pair. They started dating after meeting at the Disney XD Jungle Ball party in February 2017. Storm and Sayeed eventually went to the same high school. The two attended Saint Francis High School and graduated in 2022.
Sayeed and Reid share the same birth year and have months as their age difference. Sayeed is a few months older than Reid. Sayeed was born on February 14, 2003, and he is 19 years old as of 2023 whereas Storm was born on July 1, 2003, she is 19 years old and will celebrate her 19th birthday coming July 1st. This means Sayeed is 5 months older than Reid.
During their high school years, Reid and Shahidi went to prom and other Hollywood events together on a regular basis.
They went out as a couple in April 2019 after Shahidi’s sister Yara Shahidi assisted her then-16-year-old brother in asking the then-15-year-old A Wrinkle in Time actress to prom. “After big sister, FaceTime chats, discussions with his homies, and knowing what would make her happy, Sayeed SURPRISED Storm with the CUTEST promposal,” the Imagine That actor said on Instagram. Shahidi requested Storm for a bespoke poster board with drawings and images of the two of them, as recommended by his sister.
“Storms are uncommon in LA, I’m happy I discovered one,” the billboard said. Similarly, Reid dressed up in a light-pink feathery minidress for her last high school homecoming dance in November 2019. Her partner, who was dressed in a maroon velvet suit, joined her.
Sayeed and Storm have kept mute on why they ended their relationship as Sayeed is currently dating his new girlfriend he met at UCLA.
