SCOTT Disick and Amelia Hamlin just made their new romance Instagram official as the couple cozied up for their first public selfie together.
The 19-year-old model gushed she’s “so thankful” for her 37-year-old boyfriend as their blossoming relationship remains controversial with fans due to the large age gap.

After several of her family and friends, Amelia raised eyebrows by sharing a snap with Scott.

The telling post is the first time either has posted anything on social media with each other.
While neither have yet to comment on their relationship status, the pair are reportedly getting more serious.

The two have since been spotted together at restaurants and romantic strolls on the beach.
Amid their relationship, critics have claimed it’s gross” that Amelia is closer in age to all of Scott’s kids than to him.
The father of three shares three kids with ex Kourtney Kardashian – son Mason, 10, daughter Penelope, 8, and son Reign, 5.
One user wrote: “Pls Scott Disick has always been getting with girls that is less than half his age.

“Even if it’s ‘legal’ our brains don’t full develop until at least 21, she’s a f**king child IT’S SICK, and I can’t b the only one who’s uncomfy with ‘teen’ being in the word but now they’re an adult??”
A third pointed out: “Also reminder that all 3 of Scott Disick’s CHILDREN including the youngest Reign who is 5 years old, are close in age to his 19 year old gf/fling Amelia Gray Hamlin than he is at 37 years of age, this is f***ed up and gross.”
The critique comes following Scott’s split this Summer with fellow model Sofia Richie – who was also 19 when they began dating.

Sofia – who is now 22 – dated the KUWTK star from 2017 until their breakup earlier this year.
The back-to-back relationships with models many years his junior led to talk show host Wendy Williams who claimed Scott has a “problem with young girls.”
She said of the romance: “Now, she’s a beautiful girl but lots of girls look like that. Do you see anything special? No.

“I suspect that Scott’s got a problem with young girls, you know. Like his mind is stunted in growth and he feels more comfortable talking to young girls.
However, his baby mama Kourtney reportedly doesn’t care or have a problem with her baby daddy’s new girlfriend.
An insider close to the family said she “likes when Scott is dating someone because that’s when he’s the most grounded, happy, and responsible as a parent.”
