Olivia Dunne and Paul Skenes could be baseball’s answer to Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift – and the LSU gymnast and TikTok star clearly doesn’t mind the comparisons.

Skenes made a strong first impression during his MLB debut for the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday, striking out seven hitters as his team beat the Chicago Cubs 10-9.MLB itself appears only too happy to have Dunne, who boats millions of followers across her social media channels, at games.

On TikTok, MLB shared a video of Dunne discussing her nerves from watching Skenes play with the caption: ‘Livvy Dunne entering her MLB WAG era.’

Dunne is currently considering what comes next for her. A gymnast at LSU, she has the option to return to college for one more year.

Skenes, meanwhile, appears at home in MLB.

The pitcher, the top overall pick in the 2023 MLB draft, showed flashes of why he’s widely considered perhaps the best pitching prospect in a generation.

He was greeted by a standing ovation by most of the near-capacity crowd in Pittsburgh, including his girlfriend, and reached 100 mph on 17 of his 84 pitches.

In the third inning, the LSU gymnastics star – decked out in a personalized Skenes jacket – was interviewed by Sportsnet Pittsburgh live on air, and she was full of admiration for her other half.

‘I had some nerves creep in at first, but I’ve kind of channeled it into excitement rather than nerves, and I just have the most confidence in him ever,’ she began. ‘I just trust in him, and what he’s put in, and I’m just so excited.

‘It’s amazing, the support here is awesome. Pittsburgh has been so welcoming. Just seeing people wearing Air Force stuff, LSU stuff, Skene’s jerseys.’
