Obsession Actually Paid Off For Hardcore Disney Fan Now Dating Teen Star

Who among us, as a young person, didn’t have dreams of meeting (or even dating) our favorite teen heart throbs and hotties? It would probably be fair to say that most of us did, in fact, have some intense imaginings about our chosen stars. But, no matter how much attention we seemed to pay to those famous folks we held on high, it never seemed to get us any closer to them. Well, one young New Yorker has just made her own dreams come true.

Danielle Caesar, 22, has admired Disney Channel star Jake T. Austin for five long years, mostly from afar. She even inundated her celebrity crush with tweets and Instagram posts and comments to make sure he knew she was his number one fan. Now, the Daily Mail is reporting that Caesar and Austin have finally become an actual romantic item.

Jake T. Austin shared a photo of himself locking lips with Danielle Caesar in an Instagram post that went out to his 1.3 million followers, with the caption “I’m crazy for her.” As you can imagine, the post has garnered a ton of attention, especially with Austin’s followers. As of the Daily Mail report, his post has received a whopping 19,135 comments.

Jake T. Austin, who gained most of his fandom while starring as Max Russo on Wizards of Waverly Place for the Disney Channel from 2007 through 2012, has also made waves as Jesus Adams Foster on the ABC Family (now Freeform) show The Fosters from 2013 until 2015. The 21-year-old actor has also racked up a list of TV show appearances, film roles and voice over work.

As we all know, this type of thing just isn’t supposed to work. Fans are supposed to toil in their fandom with the near certainly that the ones they love will never even know their names, much less actually meet them. Hell, many people actively avoid meeting stars they admire, out of the fear that said star will be crappy to them and ruin all their illusions about that person. And, if you persist as Danielle Caesar did, you may be more likely to find yourself on the other end of a restraining order than laying across from your favorite star and smooching with them while taking a photo that all the world can see.

But, it looks like Jake T. Austin is much more receptive to this kind of attention than even the nicest of stars usually are. His Twitter feed is filled of photos of him with fans, whether at fan events or from random encounters on the street. He even tweeted that he loves to hear from fans, and that they are always free to come up and ask for pictures if they see him in public.

Well, if this proves anything at all, it’s that sometimes, if you stay the course, things can turn out your way. Even when the thing you’re looking for is to meet and become romantically involved with your most adored television star. This really is like some magic that would have been cooked up on Wizards of Waverly Place. Maybe having all your dreams come true is just a tweet away for you, too.
