Who is Ariane Lipski's Boyfriend?
Lipski is currently dating her boyfriend, Renato Silva. Her bae is also a former MMA athlete but as of present is focused more on being a coach. The couple resides in Florida. Lipski has been partly under Silva's tutelage since 2013. Silva first announced Ariane to his Instagram fans on November 13, 2012. She was quite prevalent on his socials thereafter - mostly for promotions and congratulations.
The pair, in a rather subtle approach, kept on hinting about their relationship - though it remains unknown whether they were doing it deliberately. It is believed the couple developed their relationship during Lipski's European journey. By October 2018, how the pair were being pictured insinuated that their bond was much more than just a teacher and a student.
However, it wasn't until Lipski's 25th birthday when Silva addressed as her better half calling her "soul mate" through a post shared on his Instagram account that featured a picture of him and his pupil-turned-girlfriend, January 26, 2019. Since then the two have been quite vocal with their love for each other.
Silva is also a father to a son, Renan, born, October 11, 2014. Though it's not confirmed if Lipski is his biological mother.
