Kirby Howell-Baptiste And Larry Fields Are Lovers, Not Married

Kirby Howell-Baptiste and Larry Fields are in a relationship; thus, they are lovers turned into co-authors.

Before their first book launch, they likely started dating before the pandemic in 2020.

This means they have been in a relationship for more than years old years as of 2024.

The couple prefers staying low-key and doesn’t share much about their love life on social media, so it’s unsurprising that many people didn’t know they were dating.

Kirby and Larry appeared as the young couple on the 229th episode of Couples Therapy on November 15, 2022, where they discussed the beginning of their relationship.

This shows their relationship dynamics, where one gives more than the other, maintaining the central balance.

Moreover, the duo have been interviewed for their books, further clarifying the depth of their relationship.

Both of them had been deeply aligned with reading and writing since a young age, and they supported each other in expressing their ideas and imaginations on paper.

In an interview with Diverse Books, Kirby shared,
