Brad and Morgan: Relationship overview

Brad Markey and Morgan Simianer got together in 2018.

They celebrated their one-year anniversary on August 13th, 2019.

Although they were together throughout the filming of Cheer, not much was alluded to Morgan’s relationship. The Netflix docuseries delved into her family history rather than her romantic life. But thanks to Instagram, we can get the lowdown on Cheer’s cutest couple!

Not many of the cheerleaders on the Navarro squad had their relationships explored on the Netflix series, but they sure aren’t afraid to blast their PDA all over their Insta feeds.

Although Lexi and her boyfriend were strong contenders, Morgan and Brad are officially Cheer’s cutest couple. You can often spot them supporting one another, Brad at Morgan’s cheer events, Morgan at Brad’s baseball games.

Although Brad was already somewhat famous, with his 10,000 IG followers, Cheer has seen Morgan blow him out the water on Instagram follower count. Morgan now has over 403,000 followers!
