It looks like Niall Horan is officially off the market.
The One Direction singer (21) has been rumoured to be dating Melissa Anne Whitelaw for over two months and the two confirmed their blossoming romance in London over the weekend.
The Mullingar native was first linked to the Australian university student and model in February and they looked loved-up as they enjoyed a night out at Libertine Nightclub.
Wearing a tweed newsboy cap, Horan did his best to try and hide his appearance, while his other half had her six pack on show in a pair of black skinny jeans and crop top.
Earlier this month it was reported that the world famous singer, who was revealed as having a net worth of €35m last week, had already introduced his new squeeze to his bandmates Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne.
And apparently she has made a great impression on her boyfriend’s nearest and dearest.
“Melissa met the rest of the band on tour, when she first grew close to Niall, but after flying over to spend time with him they now see her as his girlfriend,” the source said.
“She was a real hit with all his friends.”
While they have managed to keept their romance under wraps, with Melissa also attending last week's Great Gatsby themed ball with the world's biggest boyband, their London appearance marked their first public appearance together.
Niall has previously been linked to Victoria's Secret model Barbara Palvin and Irish models Thalia Heffernan and Zoe Whelan.
