Lauren Jauregui knows who she'll be kissing under the mistletoe this year!

ET's Katie Krause spoke with the Fifth Harmony singer at KIIS-FM’s iHeartRadio Jingle Ball presented by Capital One at the Forum in Inglewood, California, on Friday, where she gushed about spending the holiday season with her boyfriend, Ty Dolla $ign. 

"I'm going to be kissing him," she shared, starting to blush. "He's just amazing. He treats me so well." 

Jauregui, who collaborated with her beau on Fifth Harmony's "Work from Home" last year, also opened up about "branching out" from the group with other projects. 

"I mean, all of us are exploring [our own projects] right now. We’re at such an amazing place harmoniously with each other with communication and support for one another," said the 21-year-old singer, who performed "Strangers" with Halsey at Jingle Ball, and has another collab, "All Night," with Steve Aoki. "We’ve grown so much over the past year even, and I love genuinely being able to explore myself and know that my girls are there for me." 

"It’s really cool, because we’re branching out to creatively discover ourselves, because we never really got an opportunity to do that since we started this when we were...I was like 16 when I started," she added. "It's cool to be able to give each other that space to really explore ourselves individually and grow." 

The singer is still incredibly proud of her latest album with 5H, however. 

"We're still promoting this [album] and we're touring a little bit next year in Australia and Asia in March... and hopefully we'll do a U.S. and Europe run. We're really focused still on this album," she shared. "[Fifth Harmony] is so fire and it's our best work thus far, so I'm grateful for that, and hopefully we can keep exploring that. That'll be amazing."
