The couple met in Mykonos in June
James Argent is reportedly set to move in with his girlfriend – who is almost half his age – after the pair met one another’s parents in a sign their bond continues to grow.
The Towie star, 34, reportedly flew Stella Turian, 18, to Essex to meet his friends and family after travelling to Italy to meet the teenage actor’s parents.
The meetings apparently went so well that the lovebirds are reportedly planning to take their relationship to the next level and move in together soon.
A source told The Sun that Stella met James’s family and friends after arriving last Friday, adding: “They all think she’s great, and everyone is just so pleased to see James so happy; no one has seen him smile like this in years, and he’s in a really good place at the moment.”
The insider said Stella was enjoying spending more time with the reality TV star, adding: “No one would be surprised if she’d moved over at some point in the not too distant future to be with him. “Things have moved really quickly between them. At first James was worried about what people might think about the 15-year age gap (some media reports list Stella as 19).
“But no one cares, and neither do James or Stella now. They’re just looking forward to a future together.”
James had earlier travelled to Italy to meet Stella’s family, posting pictures from the iconic Amalfi Coast on his Instagram.
A source previously told Mail Online: “James has totally fallen for Stella and she adores him too. That’s why she was very keen for him to meet her family and go official with how she feels.
“The meeting went well. It’s impossible not to like James and he quickly won over Stella’s friends and family with his charm.”
The couple have been linked since June after meeting in Mykonos, where James was attending a friend’s wedding.
