The admission went a little something like this: Ellen asked Cory if he knew what “Monchele” was. Cory, noting that it was the combination of his and Lea’s last names, said “of course” he knows what it is, because, duh, they are dating.

“People think that y’all are a couple,” DeGeneres said.

“Of course we are,” he told DeGeneres to “awws” from the audience.

Monteith then went on to describe the “lovely” weekend snowboarding trip the duo just took in Whistler, Canada. “Look how cute she is,” he said when a photo of a snow bunny Michele popped up on screen. Cue more “awws.”
