During the chat, he revealed that she was secretly the muse behind some of his earlier songs.

“It takes a lot of courage to tell the woman that you love that you love her. I had five years of fear of getting rejected by her that just stopped me from doing it every time — or just confidence. I think, you know, it just took a lot. It took a long time of preparing. I mean, I had a five-year warmup to finally be able to tell her how I felt!” he gushed.

Camila also revealed what she learned about love by dating Shawn.
