Watch Dove Cameron Gush Over Boyfriend Ryan McCartan

The Disney Channel star tells MTV News how her 'Liv and Maddie' love interest became her real-life boyfriend.

From Brad and Angelina, to K-Stew and R-Patz, to Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, celebrity couples prove you’re not the only one crushing on your hot co-worker (mine sits down the hall and to the right).

Add Dove Cameron and Ryan McCartan to that list. The pair met playing love interests on the Disney Channel series “Liv and Maddie” and, before they knew it, were calling each other boyfriend and girlfriend off-screen.

“It was one of those classic Hollywood stories where, you know, there was just a lot of natural chemistry and it took us maybe four or five months into the show to really realize that there was more there than just a little bit of a flirtation,” Dove told MTV News. “He’s definitely one of the best parts about my life. I love him.”

And although there are roses — “You get to spend lots of time together” — and thorns — “When you don’t spend time together it’s especially obvious, you know, you miss each other a lot” — when it comes to workplace relationships, Dove said the pros generally outweigh the cons.

“I thought it was going to be a lot more difficult than it has been,” she admitted. “First of all, we have a really supportive cast and crew and we, we’ve pretty much been able to transfer our relationship over seamlessly from friends and co-workers to a couple. And everybody has made it really lovely and easy for us.”
