Diana Gabaldon surprised fans everywhere when she openly kissed Outlander star Sam Heughan during a recent Q & A session in Germany. In fact, once images of the now famous kiss reached social media, fans reacted with a good amount of jealousy and were left wondering what was going on between the two.

“When @caitrionambalfe away Diana will play,” One Twitter user wrote alongside the image of Gabaldon kissing Heughan. “Does anyone know the story behind this @Writer_DG @SamHeughan?”

Luckily, Gabaldon was on hand to answer this question and reveal why she felt the need to lock lips with the Outlander hunk. Apparently, it was just that kind of Q & A session that concluded with a round of kisses for everyone, not just Gabaldon and Heughan.
