In the pictures, the birthday girl played with cake and posed in her vintage outfit.

“24 ?,” she captioned her first set of photos.

Lala Anthony, Chloe x Halle and Ashley Graham were among her many friends to comment along with her boyfriend, PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive, 33.

“Gimmie!! ??Sheeesh!!” Jordan commented.

He also revealed his pet name for Harvey, writing, “Happy Birthday Turtle!!”

“Thank you nugget,” Steve and Marjorie Harvey’s daughter said in response.

The flirty exchange comes just days after the pair went Instagram official.

On Sunday, Jordan and Harvey posted photos of the Black Panther star giving the now-24-year-old a sweet kiss on the cheek.

The post came as no shock to fans who have been speculating on their romance for months.

In December, the pair were photographed getting off a plane together in Salt Lake City in pictures obtained by The Sun. They also shared snowboarding videos and photos that appeared to be in the same location on their respective Instagram Stories.

“It seems they have wanted to get to know each other in private,” a source tells PEOPLE of the couple in this week’s issue. “They have been careful about being photographed together.”

Harvey has been previously linked to musicians Future, Trey Songz and Diddy and was previously engaged to Dutch soccer pro Memphis Depay.

“In the past she quickly posted social media pictures with guys that she was dating,” says the source. “With Michael she has tried a different approach.”

The source adds the couple “spent all the major holidays together in November and December” and “Lori seems very happy.”

In November, the Just Mercy star told PEOPLE about what he’s seeking when it comes to romance.

“A sense of humor, true understanding, because [an actor’s] life is not conducive to a relationship — it’s really not,” he said of the qualities he’s looking for.

“Somebody that’s nurturing. I’ve got a list. That’s probably why my ass is still single, but yeah, it’s a list,” Jordan added.

When it comes to his ideal date, the actor said first and foremost “not worry about paparazzi.”

“Enjoy somebody’s company. Go for a drive, dope playlist. Drive somewhere just for dessert,” Jordan said. “I’m definitely a movie guy, and then I’d ride the vibe for the rest of the night.”
