With his very first solo album set to debut on Friday, things couldn’t be better for Harry Styles – and now it seems the former One Direction singer’s love life is also looking up.
New reports claim the 23-year-old is “genuinely besotted” with British model and food blogger Tess Ward, although things are still going slowly for the pair.
“As soon as Harry met Tess, there was an instant spark between them. They really bonded over their mutual love of quirky fashion and food – and things turned romantic quickly,” a source tells The Sun of the pair’s blossoming romance.
According to E! News, Harry and Tess, 27, first ran into each other in early February thanks to mutual friends – and by March, they were dating.
Things certainly seem to be moving quickly for the duo, with Tess pictured in Harry’s distinctive floral Gucci shirt while attending the Audi Polo Challenge solo in London last weekend.
While not much is known about the mysterious new woman who seems to have captured Harry’s heart, she does have a foodie following thanks to her impressive credentials in the industry.
The blonde beauty rose to fame after releasing her first healthy eating-focused cookbook, The Naked Diet, in 2015, following training with top chefs in The Ritz and River Cottage. That’s not all, however – Tess also has a modelling background and has worked with former Made in Chelsea stars Millie Mackintosh and Rosie Fortescue.
While the couple are being careful not to rush things, a source told E! News that Harry’s friend’s consider them to be “a great match”.
“Everyone that has met them has only had good things to say. We’re excited for him – he deserves a proper girlfriend.”
Harry and Tess are said to be keeping things private for now, but the “Sign of the Times” crooner is no stranger to the spotlight when it comes to his romantic history.
Kiwi model Georgia Fowler was linked to Harry last year after sharing a Snapchat video of the two of them playing Scrabble, sending One Direction fans the world over into a frenzy.
While that relationship was never publicly confirmed, Harry did get candid about one of his most public romances to date in an interview with Rolling Stone, opening up about the time he dated Taylor Swift.
“Relationships are hard, at any age. And adding in that you don't really understand exactly how it works when you're 18, trying to navigate all that stuff didn't make it easier,” he told the magazine.
Asked what he would say if he were to see Taylor again, Harry revealed, "Certain things don't work out. There's a lot of things that can be right, and it's still wrong ... Meeting someone new, sharing those experiences, it's the best s--t ever. So thank you."
