If you've been following Christina El Moussa and her new man, Ant Anstead, on social media, you might have noticed the hashtag they often use: #HMF. The three mysterious letters are found in posts, comments, and even in both of their Instagram bio's.
They use it a lot.
But what the hell does it mean?! Let's investigate.
When I did a quick initial Google search of HMF, I was told it stands for High Maintenance Female. Since there's absolutely no way that's what the couple is secretly saying to each other — especially with the letters surrounded by heart-eye emojis — I was sh*t out of luck. Or, as Christina and Ant might say, #SOL.
I continued on with my Very Important Research, and came across a photo of Ant on his Instagram, where he's promoting his TV show, Wheelers and Dealers.
Seems innocent enough, with no #HMF in sight. But, take a closer look, and you'll see Christina left a comment. "I need some love ... see you on the couch at 9 pm 💋," she writes. To which Ant responds, "It's a DATE!!!! 💋#HMF."
My mind has been running wild with potential things HMF could stand for — Hannah Montana Forever? Happy Mother F*cker? — the possibilities are endless. But, that cute, sweet message about cuddling up on the couch left me to believe HMF must mean something physical.
Here, in a six-month anniversary photo of the couple, they're holding each other. The caption once again has #HMF in it.
And again, in a selfie where they're extremely close, the hashtag reappears.
This officially convinces me that HMF means Hold Me Forever. I mean, right? Here's yet another photo of the couple hugging, the caption (obviously) including #HMF.
Maybe I'm totally wrong! Perhaps it's a total inside joke that means something ridiculous. Here, 10 additional options, with some help from the .com team and Abbreviations.com:
1. Hold My Feet
2. Hyundai Motor Financing
3. Hungry Mother F*cker
4. Hair Makeup Fashion
5. Hollow Metal Frame
6. Human Magnetic Frequency
7. Her Majesties Flagship
8. Human Micro Flora
9. Hypergolic Maintenance Facility
10. Healthcare Management Forum
If you need me, I'll be spending the long holiday weekend trying to figure this out, like it's the last missing clue to the DaVinci Code. Goodbye, social life!
