Rebel Wilson and her new man, Jacob Busch, have taken their blossoming relationship south of the US border to balmy Mexico, where the loved-up pair are clearly not afraid to show off some serious PDA.

In a recent Instagram post shared by the Isn’t It Romantic star, 40, the ‘hot couple’ — as they’ve been dubbed by fans — couldn’t seem to keep their hands off one another while out on a fancy dinner date.

Aussie actor Rebel posted a trio of pics from the evening which shows her posing against a wall in a decadent hallway while Jacob, a 29-year-old businessman and philanthropist, leans his body against her.

The final steamy snap in the set sees Jacob planting a smooch on his girlfriend’s cheek as she beams at the camera.

Rebel made sure to credit her “official personal photographer,” fashion designer and TV presenter Marissa Montgomery, for capturing the intimate moment.

Her Pitch Perfect co-star Alexis Knapp gushed over her pal in the comments section, writing: “Wow beautiful Rebel! With or without the man you are just beaming.”

“How much does this guy love you!? Like he’s literally leaning on you for life!! Hot couple - hot lewks - hot vibes,” added a fan.

“Oh my word you guys are the cutest,” said another.

Along with cosy night’s out the couple has been spending time at the beach, with Rebel keeping her social media followers up to date with their swimsuit-clad escapades.

Rebel’s raunchy comment

Rebel recently left her fans pink of cheek with an earlier Instagram post which included a very risqué caption about her new man.

In the snap, the couple is seen posing for a smiley selfie while out for a stroll along the waterfront.

“We do a lot of exercise together,” she wrote, adding a winky-face-tongue-out emoji for good measure.

While Rebel has been on a major fitness kick this year, we suspect she’s not talking about the type of exercise you do in the gym...

Her innuendo-laden caption was not lost on her followers who flooded the comments with equally cheeky responses.

“Hell to the yes,” wrote Killing Eve star Jodie Comer.

“I’d say that’s a good enough reason to do cardio,” encouraged a fan.

“It’s not horizontal running anymore, but something else. Wink wink,” joked another in reference to Rebel’s Pitch Perfect character, Fat Amy, whose preferred exercise was ‘horizontal running’ aka simply lying down.

Rebel and Jacob make things official

Rebel and her new beau Jacob made their red carpet debut together in Monaco at Prince Albert's Planetary Health Gala in late September.

Rebel shone in an iridescent off-the-shoulder gown alongside a tuxedo-wearing Jacob at the event, which also marked her first big public appearance following her weight loss journey.

Earlier in the day, she shared a photo of herself with Jacob and A-lister’s Helen Mirren and Kate Beckinsale as they boarded a helicopter.

According to People, the pair was introduced by a friend last year and began getting closer during quarantine while Rebel was in Australia and Jacob stayed in LA. They reunited when Rebel returned to the US recently.

A source told the magazine: "They are officially boyfriend and girlfriend."

"He's a gentleman, has very old school manners and treats her well," the source added.

"He is also very health conscious and they've been motivating each other with their health journeys."

"Now she's making it official by making her red carpet debut with him at the Planetary Health Gala in Monaco and attending a private dinner with Prince Albert hosted by Isabelle Bscher & Galerie Gmurzynska."

Rebel also showed off her incredible weight loss in a snap of herself before the event.

One fan commented, "I hope you feel as great as you look. Beautiful picture and dress."

"Wow just stunning," another wrote, while others called her "Cinderella" and compared her to a mermaid.

Jacob has previously been romantically linked to former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof since 2013.

He is the heir to multiple businesses including his family's beer company Anheuser-Busch.

Rebel was first spotted with Jacob while celebrating the wedding of her friends, Carly Steel and Jacob Andreou in Beverly Hills.

Earlier this year Jacob shared a shirtless snap to Instagram, which Rebel commented on with a number of fire emojis.

Jacob responded, "Back at you," along with a winking emoji.
