Niall Horan’s Blossoming Romance With Celine Vandycke: 6 Things We Know So Far
The pair were first snapped together on Friday.
Summer love is in the air!
Mullingar’s finest Niall Horan was spotted getting seriously cosy with someone new on Friday, a mystery blonde who’s now confirmed to be Belgian college student Celine Helene Vandycke.
The pair headed along to the Mumford & Sons British Summer Time gig at Hyde Park, where they were pictured kissing and cuddling in full view of fans and friends.
So who exactly is Celine, and what’s the dealio with her and Niall? Here are five things we know so far…
1. Friday was the pair’s first public date….
It’s not known when they met, but they’ve certainly been keeping things under wraps until now. However on Friday Niall made no effort to hide how smitten he was, with onlookers saying he stayed by Celine’s side all evening long. “He had his arm around her throughout the evening and kept going in to pecked her on the cheek while they watched the gig,” one concertgoer told The Sun.
2. …But things have been heating up between them for a few weeks
Here they are last month with friends in Portugal:

3. If it’s the real deal, this will be Niall’s first serious girlfriend since he found stardom
In his early X Factor days, Niall was dating fellow Mullingar native Holly Scally, but the pair broke up soon after. Since then he’s been linked to Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding, model Jessica Sarfaty and even our own Laura Whitmore amongst others, but seemed happier to be friends with each of them in the end.
4. For once, the 1D fandom haven’t formed a lynch mob to attack Celine…
… In fact, they seem to quite like her. Her biggest USP? She’s a “normal,” the Kate Middleton to his Prince William if you will.
We are all living for Niall and Celine everytime there is new pictures of them we are all like “YEEEEEES GIVE ME MORE” I love this

5. Celine might not be a global superstar, but she’s certainly global
She’s from Belgium, but has studied at England’s University of Exeter and Paris’s HEC business school. Plus, she’s fluent in three languages: Dutch, French and English.
6. She’s also keen to keep her personal life out of the glow of Niall’s spotlight
Her Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts have been private for a while now, and Celine even deleted her LinkedIn in the last 24 hours, after it was linked to by various media outlets. Now her only public presence on social media is on the many fan accounts that have already been created in her name.
