Last week the rumour mill starting churning after Niall Horan was spotted looking cosy with Pitch Perfect actress Hailee Steinfeld at a Backstreet Boys concert in Las Vegas.

Fans took to Twitter to share pictures of the Mullingar man singing and dancing with Steinfeld in the VIP section of the Axis Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort And Casino.

The One Direction star is famously private about his love life but the Irish Mirror have confirmed that the pair are officially an item. Speaking to The Social Media, an inside source revealed: “Niall and Hailee have been getting very close. They’re very cute together. They’re like best friends.”

Hailee isn’t like most girls but we guess that’s what makes her beautiful!
