For some people, the eyes wide open technique Shawm employs here has only solidified their belief that 'Shamila' is just one big PR stunt.
But never fear shippers because body language expert Blanca Cobb has confirmed that these two are indeed the real deal and that their physical intimacy at the game proves it.
Here is the breakdown
Shawn's hand placement means he's at ease (among other things)
"They’re both looking in the same direction, and if you notice where Shawn’s hand is, it’s on the right side of her body. His hands are curving into her," Blanca explains.
"Shawn’s hand is on her hips [in one photo], which is an intimate part of the body, and you wouldn’t just rest your hands there if you were acquaintances. The curvature of his fingers suggests that he is relaxed and is at ease with her. And as far as his left hand that’s resting on his thigh, his fingers are relaxed too, meaning that he’s feeling pretty chill with Camila."
A lingering kiss in public with the lips closed
"This kiss doesn’t look like anything more than lips touching, but you wouldn’t expect this type of lingering kiss at a ball game with closed eyes, and that means that they’re very comfortable with each other," Blanca explains.
Shawn's hand on Camila's shoulder means he's relaxed with her
"Shawn’s hand is on Camila’s shoulder, and the relaxed space in between fingers suggests confidence," Cobb said.
As for what Camila's body language means: "Camila has her arms draped around Shawn’s middle... meaning that they are maintaining their connection."
And finally: Why Shawn kissed with his eyes open
"Shawn is distracted, which you can tell because his eyes are open and looking to the court, but he and Camila are still maintaining the connection because their fingers are interlinked," Blanca explained.
"There’s no tension in the fingers, but the fingers of Shawn’s right hand aren’t touching the back of Camila’s hand, which also hints at the distraction on his end."
A guy getting distracted from his girlfriend while he's sitting courtside at a basketball game? TBH the story checks out.
"They’re sitting shoulder to shoulder like they’re literally joined at the seam," Cobb added. "You can tell by the position of the legs—Camila is leaning toward him."
