Shawn Mendes Confirms What We All Suspected — Niallee is Real!
Hailee Steinfeld and Niall Horan tried to keep their relationship on the DL for quite some time, despite being inundated with dating rumors on the daily. The rumored couple finally threw caution to the wind last week when they packed on the PDA while out and about in Los Angeles, basically confirming their romance.

While neither of the singers have publicly spoken about being a couple yet, good pal Shawn Mendes gave us the final confirmation we needed to know that Niallee is, in fact, real!
The “In My Blood” singer was asked about his friends’ speculated relaysh at the 2018 VMAs and he was actually kind of surprised that people were shocked by the kissing pics because he thought the romance was “common knowledge.”
“I thought this was common knowledge! But I guess it was common knowledge for me since I’m friends with them both,” the 20-year-old tells Access.
He continues, “Niall and Hailee — they’re two of my favorite people in the whole world. Niall is one of my greatest friends and Hailee is one of the first people… you know, when she first started out, I was one of the first people she worked with in music and I love them both.”
