After months of speculation that the two are an item, Hailee Steinfeld and Niall Horan have confirmed that they are an item by kissing in public during a Target run.
On Wednesday, the two were spotted kissing during a trip to Target. Both of them were wearing coordinating outfits: a white T-shirt with jeans and white sneakers. The kiss has sealed speculations that started way back in February about the couple’s relationship status. During their Target trip, the duo picked up humidifiers and bottles of water.
A source told E!, “They couldn’t keep their hands [or] eyes off of each other. Very sweet together.” The couple were also spotted kissing during a trip to Disneyland the day before their Target run, which is making fans speculate if they plan on making their relationship public soon. In March, a source told E!, “It’s true that Hailee and Niall are dating, but at this point it’s still pretty casual.”
Rumors of a relationship started in February when the two were spotted attending a Backstreet Boys concert together at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. According to onlookers, the two then went to XS Nightclub and watched Diplo’s set together.
In July, Steinfeld pretty much confirmed to fans that her and Horan are becoming more serious by telling an audience, “For the longest time, part of me was like this is not love, it’s falling and it’s great, but it’s definitely not love. I’m fine. I’m fine. This person could leave tomorrow and I’d be fine and then I realized no, I wouldn’t. This is love. This is love.”
Steinfeld has been touring with Charlie Puth since July and Horan has been on his own world tour since March.
