Laurie Hernandez is head over heels for Charlotte Drury!

On Instagram Wednesday, the Olympic gold medalist marked her third anniversary with the 27-year-old photographer and Olympic trampoline gymnast by posting a carousel of cute images.

“3 years later you’re still my favorite person!!” Hernandez, 23, wrote alongside the photos — which spanned sweet to artsy and goofy — of the two athletes.

Drury, who was an alternate in trampoline gymnastics at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, returned the sentiment with her own Instagram post, sharing a black-and-white snapshot of her girlfriend, with the caption: “Through every chapter. Happy three years my love ♥️”

The two former gymnasts haven't shied away from sharing photos of each other on their respective Instagram pages.

In April of last year, Hernandez posted a video on TikTok of her reaction to learning she had been accepted into New York University's Tisch School of the Arts — with Drury by her side.

Before the two learned what turned out to be good news, Drury assured Hernandez — who won gold in the team event at the 2016 Rio Olympics and a silver in the balance beam — that despite the outcome she would still be "proud" of her. "No matter what happens, I'm so, so proud of you," Drury told her at the time.

While the longtime partners have supported one another’s accomplishments over the years, Hernandez first publicly revealed the relationship last December.

"2 whole years! can u believe it!!" wrote Hernandez alongside a sweet photo of Drury giving her a kiss on the cheek.

In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE last October, Hernandez shared that she was "taken" by a photographer, but didn't name Drury. She also said at the time that she'd been dating her "partner" for just under two years and that "life is really good."

The California native also shared on Instagram at the time that she had a crush on Hernandez before the two became a couple.
