#2. Her Fiancé’s Abs Got Attention

Cassidy didn’t publicize her latest relationship though she wasn’t shy of holding on the PDA. We got our first look at her new boyfriend, Matthew Rodgers in December 2016 when the couple were vacationing together in Miami.

While Cassidy turned up the heat with a bikini that showed off her phenomenal body, her boyfriend matched abs as well. The paparazzi shots showed Rodgers was never far from his lady and always made it into the shots. No one’s complaining because the man has a body to flaunt as well.

The particular hotel in Miami appears to be her favorite romantic haunt. She was spotted in the exact place a year before with her rumored beau, Thomas Taylor. Before Taylor, she was sunbathing there with film producer, Dana Brunetti.

#3. He’s on Her Instagram

Rodgers isn’t a celebrity unlike many of Cassidy’s previous romances. He frequently cropped up on her Instagram feed leading to dating rumors. After being spotted together at Cassidy’s favorite hotspot, it was a given that these two are a couple.

Rodgers’ Instagram is private though we managed to get a look at it. He’s an animal lover and recently adopted a puppy to give his three dogs another friend. He’s also a sporty kind of guy having played football in school. He got some golfing pictures in there too. And you know a guy loves you when he’s among the scores of fans hoping for Cassidy’s character, Black Canary to return in Arrow.
