The 'Vanderpump Rules' star and the fitness coach checked out one of the city's most popular sights, "The Bean"
Ariana Madix is taking in the sights of the Windy City.
The Vanderpump Rules star, 38, shared a photo on Instagram Monday capturing her visiting one of Chicago's most popular tourist attractions, "The Bean," a large reflective metal art installation in Millennium Park. She was joined by her boyfriend, fitness coach and influencer Daniel Wai.
Even the rainy weather didn't seem to dampen the couple's spirits, as they cuddled up and posed with big smiles in front of the sculpture, which was created by British artist Anish Kapoor. "Beans beans the musical fruit ," Madix wrote in her caption, jokingly referencing the art piece.
Though they've only been dating for a few months, the two already appear super in sync when it comes to their style: Madix and Wai sported matching gray-and-white Nike kicks for their Chicago getaway.
The couple was first romantically linked back in April, when they were spotted kissing and holding hands at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in California. At the time, it had been a little over a month since Madix had learned of her longtime boyfriend Tom Sandoval's monthslong secret with her best friend and VPR costar Raquel Leviss. Madix and Wai reportedly met at a mutual friend's wedding in Mexico in March.
After the pair's PDA-packed Coachella outing, an insider told PEOPLE Madix wasn't looking to rush into anything "serious" and was just "having fun" with Wai. However, just one month later, a source revealed to PEOPLE that things were already getting serious between the two.
"Ariana's been telling people in her circle that she's falling in love with him," the source said. "They met in Mexico at a mutual friend's wedding, shortly after Scandoval broke. At first, it looked like just a light rebound fling, but they have a special bond. Even though he lives in New York City, they've been able to make it work."
"It's happening faster than she thought but he treats her well, they're having fun, and she's happy to be moving on to this next chapter with such an incredible guy," the source added.

In June, Wai treated Madix to a romantic "date night" to the Orchard Quarter candlelight concert to celebrate her birthday. He also paid tribute to her with a sweet Instagram post, writing, "Happy birthday to the kindest and most generous woman I know @arianamadix."
"You know, I'm enjoying myself and I would say I'm very happy right now," she told host Hoda Kotb.
She also shared the story of how she met Wai, just days after her split from Sandoval. "I met him at a wedding about 10 days after all of this," she recalled. "And in no way shape or form did I go into that thinking anything, and I've just been taking things very, very slow and really enjoying myself."
She added of Wai, "It's just really lovely to interact with someone who is so nice and kind and caring."
