Is Niall Horan Single?

Horan and his fellow members also gained a large amount of fans who were deeply interested in their personal lives.

Since One Direction members have been branded as heartthrobs – even after the group went on a hiatus in 2016 – people would still like to know who each member is dating. If you are curious about Niall Horan’s relationship status, read on below to find out whether he is currently single or not.

In late 2017, fans began speculating that Niall Horan could be dating fellow singer Hailee Steinfeld after he posted a birthday message that called her “loveliest person on the planet and one of my best friends.”

The two of them were known to be extremely secretive about their relationship. They did not post much about each other on social media and refused to discuss the dating rumors in interviews. For example, when Us Weekly asked Steinfeld about it, she said that “there are boundaries to a person’s life and personal life,” and did not confirm or deny her relationship with Horan.

In any case, Horan and Steinfeld were spotted together numerous times. The couple was even seen kissing in Los Angeles at one point, which onlookers took as confirmation that they were very much together.

However, Horan and Steinfeld seemed to have broken up by December 2018. Since they had been private about their relationship, neither side confirmed why they parted ways. Nevertheless, an insider allegedly said to Us Weekly: “Niall wrapped up his tour and had more free time, but Hailee’s work schedule really ramped up, so they didn’t have time for a relationship. They still have a lot of love for each other.”

It has been reported that Horan’s new song, “Put a Little Love on Me” could be about his breakup with Steinfeld.

Before Steinfeld, Niall Horan was linked to several people, though he was tight-lipped about those relationships as well.

For example, in 2014, it was believed that Horan had an on-and-off fling with Hungarian model Barbara Palvin, but a source said that they “fizzled out as Niall and Barbara are both working in different parts of the world.”

In 2016, he reportedly dated Australian model Melissa Whitelaw. Once again, distance broke up this relationship. An insider claimed that “realistically they always knew it was going to be tough” since they were working in different countries.

Horan also had a fling with singer Ellie Goulding. In an interview in 2016, Goulding revealed that she and Horan “went on a few dates, and it was really fun.”

Is Niall Horan single right now?

After his breakup with Steinfeld, it does not seem like Niall Horan has found another serious relationship.

However, being a famous celebrity, there has not been a shortage of dating rumors swirling around him. Over the summer, there were rumors that he and Goulding might have gotten back together. And back in October, a lot of fans suspected that Horan could be dating Selena Gomez. Nevertheless, neither of these relationships ended up manifesting into something serious.

In fact, earlier this month, Horan confirmed in an interview that he does not have a girlfriend and is “very much single.”

So there you have it. Niall Horan is currently living the single life. The 26-year-old also seems to just be focusing on promoting his new single, “Put a Little Love on Me” and his upcoming album that is to be released in 2020.
