Blake and his now-fiance Teresa may have had a particular connection to 'The Phantom of the Opera'. The couple dressed as the Phantom and Christine for Halloween in 2021, as seen in a photo Blake shared on Instagram.
According to an anniversary post on his Instagram, Blake and Teresa have been dating for a little over six years. "5 years ago I slid into your dm and I'm soooo grateful you didn't ignore me," he wrote in 2021. "I am so lucky to have fallen in love with such an amazing person. Happy late anniversary baby girl."
