After seeing Mariah on the app, Madison went on a mission to find her Instagram and then sliding into her DMs was not a difficult task.
The lovebirds started talking on Instagram and Madison was really smooth about asking Mariah to come visit her. She revealed, “I was staying in a hotel in Charleston and was like, ‘Just come hang out. We can chat, chill.’ Everything’s closed so it’s not like we can go out anywhere.” The first meeting went smoothly and the couple soon started dating.
Talking about their relationship Madison Bailey told Glamour UK, “When I’m with my girlfriend, I feel the everyday joy of it. I feel joyful with her every single day. That might sound corny but I’m so serious — the joy is just being who I am with my girlfriend every single day.” It is still a blossoming relationship, but they both appear serious about where it is headed.
According to Madison’s Instagram page, the couple celebrate their anniversary on 8 June. On 8 June 2021 Madison Bailey captioned a picture saying it has been 365 days since their relationship began. So, right in the middle of summer the two lovebirds made their relationship social media official. Now, they have been together for over a year and all the PDA filled pictures show they are not slowing down any time soon.
Madison Bailey Plays Kiara in the Netflix Series Outer Banks
Outer Banks was a summer show from Netflix about four friends living in North Carolina. While the show was released in April, through out summer a growing number of fans saw the soap/treasure hunt drama which resulted in the streaming platform green lighting a second season. With good critical and audience reaction, Outer Banks was one of the biggest hits of last year.
The Netflix show followed John B and three of his friends living in Outer Banks for the summer. When John receives a package from his father, the four Pogues go on a mission to find a missing treasure of gold. During their quest, the friends fall in love, get in a lot of danger and cause a whole town to shut down. But with a large game in play, it would be interesting to see if the Pogues manage to get the treasure.
Madison Bailey plays Kiara in Outer Banks. Kiara is glue of the team and even though she is a little well off than her friends, years of friendship matter to her more than status. Kiara also has an ambiguous relationship with two of the Pogues, that will probably get explored more in the second season of the hit show.
Outer Banks season 2 is coming to Netflix on 30 July 2021. The cast is led by Chase Stokes as John B and Madelyn Cline as Sarah Cameron, Madison Bailey as Kiara, Jonathan Daviss as Pope, and Rudy Pankow as JJ, with Caroline Arapoglou and Drew Starkey also starring as Rose Cameron and Rafe Cameron, respectively.
