Emilia Clarke and Charlie McDowell Just Slyly Announced They're Dating on Instagram

Emilia Clarke commemorated her 32nd birthday on the 'gram by unveiling an impressive dragon cake and, it seems, a new relationship. The boyfriend rollout was sly: Clarke posted of two shadows, presumably her and her partner's, in the sand. "Well that was a birthday I won’t be forgetting in a while. ❤️" she captioned. The shadow person wasn't tagged, but his identity is pretty obvious considering he posted the same shot. 

Charlie McDowell, a film director, captioned the identical photo on his own Instagram, "Happy birthday, E. ❤️" Clarke liked the photo, and McDowell liked hers. Case closed.
