Niall Horan and Hailee Steinfeld take their relationship public with serious PDA

A public affair! Niall Horan and Hailee Steinfeld were spotted packing on the PDA in Los Angeles for the first time, seemingly confirming their long-rumored romance.

Horan, 24, and Steinfeld, 21, kept close during their Thursday, August 16, outing in L.A., kissing and wrapping their arms around each other. You can see the photos in the video above.

Reports that the twosome had started seeing each other first surfaced in January. While the “Slow Hands” singer and the Pitch Perfect 3 star have kept their romance fairly private in the past, a source told Us Weekly in May that they are “not trying to hide their relationship,” noting that the duo was seen “making out all night” at a bar in L.A.

See Hailee through the years:

The Oscar nominee played coy about their romance back in January, telling Us Weekly exclusively that she is a “very private person.”

“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 in general to realize that there are boundaries to a person’s life and personal life” Steinfeld told Us on the red carpet at Lip Sync Battle Live: A Michael Jackson Celebration on January 18. “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.”
