Iggy Azalea chatted with Wild Jam 94.9 in December where she openly talked about her boyfriend, Los Angeles Lakers' player Nick Young.

For those of you who didn't have the slightest idea how the pair got together. Well, it all started with a flirty conversation over at Twitter in September 2013. Young participated in "Woman Crush Wednesday" and said that he has a crush on the Aussie singer-rapper. They have flirted a few more times online. The news finally broke about the two officially dating when Azalea posted picture of Young on Instagram during her concert. Then, they were spotted leaving a restaurant together in November.

In her interview with the radio station based in San Francisco, Azalea talked about her upcoming album. She has a new album coming out in March. She said that Young has heard parts of the new album. She looked a little shy but she was grinning when the Young's name was brought up. "I'm happy," said Azalea. "I'm just glad that he is taller than me," she added.

Azalea revealed that she was never really a fan of basketball before. "I'm a fan of his," she said. "He makes me like a fan," she added. She wasn't really fond of watching basketball at all. "I can't sit here and pretend that I like basketball before, I didn't, I really didn't care about basketball before," she said.

"When you have an invested interest in somebody, it makes you interested in that," Azalea said. "I love watching Nick play in the Lakers and I watch him play at the gym too," said the singer-rapper.

What started as a "Woman Crush Wednesday" on Twitter has turned into a lovely relationship. On Wednesday, Azalea posted a selfie picture in bed with Young on Instagram. "Morning," she wrote as its caption. The Aussie singe-rapper seems to deeply enjoying her relationship with the basketballer. Love is definitely in the air.

Azalea is up for several awards at the 2014 World Music Awards including Best Entertainer, Best Female Artist, Best Live Act as well as Best Song and Best Video for her song "Bounce."
