Sex/Life on Netflix follows the story of suburban mother of two Billie Connelly (played by Sarah Shahi) whose world is turned upside when her ex-boyfriend Brad (Adam Demos) re-enters her life. Billie, who is married to her straight-laced husband Cooper (Mike Vogel), is faced to decide between her marriage, her passion, and herself.
The sexual chemistry between Billie and her male co-stars is electric to say the least, but the intensity between Billie and Brad especially has got everybody hot and bothered.
Their on-screen chemistry is so convincing to audiences as Shahi and Demos are dating in real life.
Exactly when the pair began dating remains unknown but it is believed they met on the set of Sex/Life.
The first clue Shahi and Demos were dating came in New Year 2021 when Shahi uploaded a photo of them together.
On January 10, 2021, Shahi confirmed the pair were dating after posting a photograph celebrating her birthday with the caption: “Time to celebrate. Thank you to my love @adam_demos for making it so very special.”
Demos responded on his own Instagram sharing a photo of him and Shahi with the caption: “Happy bday my baby. I f*#kin love you You’re everything.”
The pair have been sharing adorable images of each other on their personal Instagram accounts since the beginning of 2021 and spoken candidly about their relationship in several interviews since the show’s release.
Speaking to People, Shahi shared she was instantly captivated by Demos.
She said: “When I first met Adam, I was really blown away with him.
“We met in the makeup trailer and we just got on instantly. We had the exact same taste in music. We had the same taste in whiskey and tequilas and I was really blown away by him just as a person and all I knew was that I wanted more.”
Shahi added: “And then I got an opportunity to act with him, and I will say, sitting across the other side of the camera with him was just a privilege.
“You’re only as good as your scene partner. He’s amazing in the show.”
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Demos confirmed he and Shahi were together.
When asked about their blossoming relationship, Demos said: “‘What I will say and I am always happy to say, is that I am a lucky man and it is happy days.’
Shahi recently shared with the world an insight into her relationship with co-star Demos.
On May 22, Shahi posted on Instagram a swipe of several photos of the pair together, wishing him a happy birthday.
Shahi captioned the post: “Not exactly sure how two people on opposite sides of the world could have more in common, we’re meant to meet, were meant to be together. But I do know I met my soulmate. I do know I found me forever. I do know I’ve never loved deeper, harder, more ferociously. I do know I’m overly grateful for him. I do know I’ve loved him for a thousand lifetimes before and will love him for a thousand lifetimes more. Happy birthday my baby @adam_demos.”
Demos responded in the comment section: “My forever and more.. I love you so f****** much my baby.”
In May 2020, several months before Sex/Life began filming, Shahi filed for divorce from her then-husband, Shameless star Steve Howey.
Howey and Shahi had been married for 11 years and have three children together. Their divorce was finalized in January 2021.
