become a fan of (someone or something)
To begin to like, appreciate, support, and/or be interested in someone or something. You might find this hard to believe, but Cheryl's become a big fan of heavy metal over the years. I've become a fan of Jen's new boyfriend, and, yes, the fact that he brought me fancy chocolates did help!
