For several weeks now, we’ve been hearing rumors about Niall Horan and Hailee Steinfeld dating.
Both parties denied the rumors, claiming that they’re nothing more than close friends.
Now, however, those who know the couple best are speaking out on their relationship, and it seems there’s no doubt that the singers are far more than just platonic besties.
“It’s true that Hailee and Niall are dating, but at this point it’s still pretty casual,” a source close to both parties tells E! News.
Fans have suspected that the photogenic stars are hooking up since back in February.
The couple attempted to spend a low-key weekend together in Vegas, but the tabloid media was quick to catch on.
Niall and Hailee were spotted taking in a Backstreet Boys concert, and fans social media immediately began buzzing with dating rumors.
In December, Niall added fuel to the fire by gushing about Hailee on Instagram:
“Happy birthday to the loveliest person on the planet and one of my best friends @haileesteinfeld,” he wrote.
A few days ago, she returned the favor by posting a photo of herself wearing a t-shirt from Horan’s recent world tour.
Needless to say, didn’t really need today’s confirmation to led them to the conclustion that Niall and Hailee are more than just friends.
Niall and Hailee were reportedly both single when they started spending a lot of time together several months ago, but their dating histories have intersected in interesting ways.
Back in 2017, it was rumored that Hailee was hooking up with Justin Bieber.
Around that same time, reports about Niall and Selena Gomez were everywhere on social media.
So we’re guessing Niall and Hailee had no trouble coming up with topics of conversation during their first date.
As for how they spend their time these days, we’re guessing they repeatedly watch True Grit and discuss the fact that Hailee seriously deserved an Oscar for that performance.
For most people, stealing every scene in a Coen brothers movie would be the peak, but fortunately, both Hailee and Niall have avoided the curse of the child star.
