Storm Reid and her boyfriend, Sayeed Shahidi, make a cute pair. They started dating after meeting at the Disney XD Jungle Ball party in February 2017. They eventually went to the same high school.
Storm Reid and Her Boyfriend in High School
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. In 2020, the Suicide Squad actress will graduate from high school. In an Instagram post on May 17, she thanked her family, friends, and loved ones for their support throughout the years. Shahidi also announced his high school graduation on Instagram on June 16, 2020. In his message, he said, “Congratulations to everyone who has reached this milestone this year!”
Storm Reid’s Relationship With Her Boyfriend Is Usually Private
Reid and Shahidi’s relationship is normally kept secret. They seldom communicate their feelings for one another through social media postings or lengthy captions. However, on important occasions such as birthdays, they have been seen invading their privacy and posting images of themselves. Shahidi, for example, a gram a sequence of his and Reid’s photos and films in a now-deleted Instagram post in July 2021. He sent them to the actress to wish her a happy 18th birthday.
“This is a bizarre time for me since it seems like only a few weeks ago when we met at 13 years old and now you’re a complete 18-year-old adult who has done so much [sic],” he said in the post. He proceeded to express himself, adding that the memories they had formed up to that point would be with him for the rest of his life. He was also looking forward to seeing what the cosmos had in store for them.
Finally, the Uncle Buck actor wrote, “Happy Birthday Twinny, I love you a lot,” saying he was inspired by who she was, pleased to be in her life, and lucky to have her in his. In another case, Reid and Shahidi celebrated both Valentine’s Day and Shahidi’s birthday in 2021. On that occasion, they appeared in an episode of Facebook Watch’s series Chop It Up and had an open discussion about their dating lives, families, and careers.
