Apparently, Niall Horan and Hailee Steinfeld are, in Fact, Dating
There have been rumors that Niall Horan and Hailee Steinfeld are dating ever since he called her “the loveliest person on the planet” on her birthday in December. The musicians further sparked that speculation by going to the West End production of Hamilton together just after the new year and then seeing the Backstreet Boys concert in Las Vegas the following month.
The rumors continued heating up after the “Let Me Go” singer posted a picture of herself wearing one of Niall’s tour t-shirts on Instagram along with the coordinates 51.4613° N, 0.1156° W, which is the location of a road in Brixton, U.K. Why did she choose this location, you may ask? It’s not far from the O2 Academy where the “Slow Hands” crooner performed on March 22.
Haiz actually joined opening act Julia Michaels on stage that night to perform “Love Myself,” which was co-written by the 24-year-old.

Okay, but back to what’s really on everyone’s minds — what the HECK is going on between Hailee and Niall? Are they just really close friends, or is there something more between them? According to E! News, the answer is the latter!
“It’s true that Hailee and Niall are dating, but at this point it’s still pretty casual,” a source explains.
More details about Niallee are not currently known and it’s seeming like it’s going to stay that way for a while. The last time the brunette beauty was asked about the dating rumors, she played it super coy.
“I feel so lucky that [my fans] care enough about me to know what I’m doing every second of every day, but I think that sometimes it’s hard for people to realize that there are boundaries to a person’s life and personal life,” she told Us Weekly. “I am a very private person. I do love that I have the opportunity to share with them what I’m comfortable with and they’re there to listen and support me.”
