The Queer Eye Fab Five spend so much time teaching us to love ourselves, but outside of the show they all have busy lives with their partners and families.

Tan France has just welcomed a baby son with his husband Rob and Karamo Brown has two sons in their twenties.

Then there's our favourite foodie and chef Antoni Porowski, who is currently loved up with his boyfriend Kevin Harrington. After season six of the Netflix show dropped on the streaming service, we thought we'd do a deep dive into everything you need to know about Antoni's boyfriend...

Who is Antoni Porowski's boyfriend?

Antoni is currently in a relationship with Kevin Harrington, a strategic planner from New York who works at ad agency Johannes Leonardo. They've been dating since October 2019 after sliding into each other's DMs on Instagram. Antoni and Kevin were first linked when they attended Bette Midler’s annual Hulaween charity bash together and were later pictured at Heidi Klum's Halloween party in their amazing couple's fancy dress costume as Blockbuster employees back from the dead.

Who has Antoni Porowski dated?

Prior to his relationship with Kevin, Antoni dated Flipping Out star Trace Lenehoff for a year before splitting in August 2019. Before that he was in a seven-year relationship with boyfriend Joey Krietemeyer.

Speaking about his dating history during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Antoni previously said, "I never really had a traditional coming out. I dated a man and then I dated women for several years and then I was in a relationship with a man.”

Tom: Season One, Episode One

The Fab Five's first makeover subject was self-described redneck Tom, a Mountain Dew devotee with the heart-breaking catchphrase 'You can't fix ugly.' At the end of the episode, he appeared on the verge of a tentative reconciliation with his ex-wife, Abbey. Though Tom later announced on Twitter that they were no longer together, they've since (re) tied the knot in a low-key ceremony. Then they divorced again in 2019. Keeping up?

Neal: Season One, Episode Two

Following his Queer Eye makeover, app developer Neal seems to be fully embracing everything he learned from the Fab Five. 'I feel fully confident in business meetings. I'm way more engaged,' he recently told Men's Health. 'It's not just new clothes. It's my attitude, too.' He's still Instagramming pictures of his dog, too, and describes himself online as a 'mediocre comedian.'

Cory: Season One, Episode Three

NASCAR enthusiast and police officer Cory seems to have taken Jonathan's skincare gospel to heart: face mask selfies are now regular programming on his Instagram account. Following their much-discussed heart to heart about police brutality, he and Karamo have forged a close relationship. 'We still have some political differences, but as a whole, I see him as a human being and he sees me as a human being,' the latter told Buzzfeed. 'I see him as a father, he sees me as a father. That's why we're texting each other at eight o'clock in the morning.' They even FaceTimed each other to watch Cory's episode together. Aww.

AJ: Season One, Episode 4

Queer Eye isn't short of tear-jerking moments, but AJ's episode – which saw him finally come out to his much-loved step-mother – was a season one standout. Since then, he's got married to his boyfriend, Andre.

Remy: Season One, Episode Six

Remy, who recruited the Five to help him transform the house he'd inherited from his grandmother (complete with some outstanding '70s décor), has clearly taken their style advice to heart: his Instagram account shows him sporting some Karamo-esque bomber jackets and print shirts that Tan would be proud of. Plus, he attended the Black Panther premiere in some Wakanda-infused garb, too.

Bobby: Season One, Episode Five

Bobby, his wife Vera and their six children moved out of the home which we saw made over on episode five. 'Vera literally DM'd me the day before yesterday and they moved to a different house with three bedrooms,' Jonathan told Buzzfeed, adding that the Camp brood are 'still using their kits and caboodles, which is great.' I mean, who would turn down his curated selection of grooming products?

Joe: Season One, Episode Seven

Well, this is a little awkward. It seems that aspiring comedian Joe decided to delete the website which Karamo built for him. 'He was like, "I'm not sure if I'm ready for that point in my career,"' Karamo told Buzzfeed. 'I was like, "I'm building you this because in a matter of months, millions of people are gonna see you and flock to your website!" And he took it down.' Just think of all the Google authority you could have gained, Joe… That aside, his Instagram account suggests that he's still getting his hair cut at the salon Jonathan recommended. That's something at least.

Tammye: Season Two, Episode One

The show's first female makeover was one of the most emotional episodes to date, with viewers immediately taking Mamma Tammye and her son Myles into their hearts. Speaking to Vanity Fair, Jonathan revealed: 'I talk to Tammye a lot on Instagram. I'm always on the DM with my queen.' (Indeed, he recently shared her new haircut to his social media followers). Happily, he continues, 'she is doing really good […] still just nurturing other people and giving so much of herself all the time.' Myles, meanwhile, has returned to his church choir again.

William: Season Two, Episode Two

William, populariser of the phrase 'I Shannan You' (if you know, you know), found the courage to propose to his long-term girlfriend with the help of the Fab Five. William and Shannan tied the knot on June 16th of last year, and you can see the photos on his Twitter account.

The end credits of Burning Man aficionado Jason's Queer Eye makeover gave us the conclusion we'd been rooting for: he'd ditched his plans to move to Reno and had finally got together with his best friend Beth. We're pleased to report that the couple are still together, according to Beth's Twitter account.

Skyler: Season Two, Episode Five

When the Fab Five first met Skyler, the first trans man to feature in the newly rebooted Queer Eye, he had only recently undergone top surgery. Now, he is seeking justice: he sued his employer after discovering that his insurance excluded trans-related healthcare.

Arian: Season Two, Episode Six

Of course, the question on everyone's lips is: did Ari finally graduate college? Luckily, Karamo has the answers. He told Vanity Fair: 'I've been in contact with him and he finally graduated and has a job. I'm so proud of him.' Hooray! He now works as an analyst in Atlanta.

Did Antoni Porowski date Jonathan Van Ness?

Following Antoni’s split from his ex-boyfriend Trace, fans were convinced that meant he was dating his Queer Eye co-star Jonathan Van Ness – not least because they run an Instagram account called Jvntoni, which features photos of them looking VERY couply.

However, Jonathan cleared things up when he tweeted, “Also for clarification, [Antoni Porowski] & I are a couple—of very close friends who run a satirical couple account and may fall in love someday, but that day is not necessarily today.”

Antoni then replied, “Babe, what?! Um call me rn.” LOL.

While Antoni is currently dating Kevin, Jonathan is married to his “best friend” Mark Peacock.
