Manoah and Somoza have been dating since 2019. In July 2022, the couple made headlines after documenting their VIP experience at MLB All-Star weekend in LA. In a behind-the-scenes video shared by the pitcher, the pair could not stop grinning as they made their way to the red carpet.
During the event, the pitcher flaunted his expensive Rolex watch and a diamond necklace with his Toronto No. 6. While Somoza's hair was pulled back, she looked lovely in a bright one-shoulder bodycon dress and ankle-strapped open-toed sandals.
Manoah and his partner once posed for pictures beside Justin Verlander, the Astros pitcher, and Kate Upton. In addition to many other photos from the celebrity-studded weekend, Manoah also added a video of his family cheering his name.
