Now she has joked about the real reason she is with him.
And it is adorable.
Longtime fans of Charlie know his family breeds guide dogs – and it seems like Georgia is also a fan.
Posting a series of pictures of the latest litter of pups, Georgia captioned it with a cute message.
She joked: “I’m only with him for the puppies.”
Charlie was recently forced to hit back at trolls who abused him for breeding dogs.

“As beautiful as they are, why? I am quite shocked at this. Adopt not shop,” one person raged.
But Charlie didn’t take this comment lying down – and instead fired back, writing: “They’re going to be Guide Dogs. You can’t buy them.”
Another follower then got involved and proclaimed: “Hope it’s her last lot,” while someone else chimed in: “Meant to be two-year gap not impressed at all.”
And once again, Charlie hit back at the trolls. He wrote: “Feel free to be unimpressed, but you’re also very much incorrect.”
He then included a link to a guide dog FAQ page from a website.
It wasn’t all doom and gloom for Charlie though – as many smitten fans gushed over the actor’s fur babies.

Georgia shared several snaps of her birthday celebrations in Scotland – and Charlie was right by her side.
In one picture, the two can be seen beaming for the camera while snuggling up to one another on top of a hill in Edinburgh.
She captioned the loved-up snaps: “Birthday weekend. An ancient volcano, a castle, many, many, many steps, deep-fried confectionery and a very fine mustachioed gentleman.”
Coronation Street usually airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV.
