According to an Instagram post from 2018, Tolami Benson was born on 3 December 2000. This means she is nearly one year older than Bukayo Saka, who was born on 5 September 2001.

The 21-year-old seems to live a lavish lifestyle, with over 16,300 Instagram followers and hundreds of posts which see her flying first class, soaking up the sun on expensive holidays and driving nice cars.

Tolami also seems to be an Arsenal fan. She is seen in multiple social medias posts wearing the red t-shirt in support of her footballer boyfriend - who wears the number seven shirt for the Premier League club.

How long have Bukayo Saka and Tolami Benson been together?

The pair are thought to have started dating in 2020 but kept their relationship out of the public eye for some time.

Rumours of their relationship began circulating in November last year, after Tolami posted a photo to Instagram with someone in a mask.

Her and this masked man visited a Halloween Frightnight at Thorpe Park Resort in Surrey - about 20 miles from London.

Their romance was then uncovered in February this year, when eagle-eyed fans spotted they had shared individual pictures of them on the same yacht in Dubai.

The couple have not yet shared any pictures of them together on social media, and also don’t follow each other.

However, Tolami appeared at England’s World Cup opening game, where she sat alongside Saka’s brother, donning a blue and white England shirt.
