Their on-screen relationships got nothin’ on their off-screen ones.

As romantic as The Young and the Restless can be — and when it’s firing on all cylinders, it can be pretty damn romantic — its love stories still can’t compare to the ones being played out off screen by the show’s stars. Don’t believe it? Consider Exhibit A, these adorable snapshots from the beach of Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), husband Rob Meder, and their cutie-pie daughter Jojo as they enjoyed “lobster night.”

Want further evidence? Check out this smooch-y photo of Conner Floyd (Chance) and his girlfriend Carly Frei when they attended a wedding together in his home state of Texas. Pucker up!

How about Camryn Grimes (Mariah) celebrating one year with her love, voice actor Brock Powell? This duo is now engaged and planning a wedding. So romantic!

Or take a gander at cozy couple Rory Gibson (Noah) and his fiancee, model Alicia Reuelas.

Still not convinced? Bask in the love between Melissa Ordway (Abby) and Justin Gaston (ex-Chance), who she calls “My best friend. My husband. My heart.”
