After a difficult 12 months, we could all use a little extra dose of happiness to help restore our faith in love again, right? To kick off 2021 on the right foot, we’re tracking every major love affair in the celebrity world. Why? Because it gives us warm and fuzzy feelings. Although these romances are only just beginning, these hot new high-profile couples have seemingly found their happily ever after. We love to see it!

Kanye West and Irina Shayk

OK, so technically this is still a rumour, but think about it: the rapper was snapped on vacation in Provence, France, this week with the Russian model — does that not scream relationship? Especially since West was beaming in those photos. Although the pair were joined by a group of friends to celebrate West’s 44th birthday, they seemed to be having a great time together.

This marks the first time West has appeared in public with another woman since his split with wife of six years, Kim Kardashian, was first announced in February. The couple have four children together. Shayk, 35, was previously linked to Bradley Cooper, with whom she shares a daughter. Only time will tell as to whether or not this is the real deal, but it certainly seems legit.

Camilla Mendes and Charles Melton

They’re back on again! The Riverdale co-stars, who broke up in 2019 after a whirlwind romance, are dating again after reconnecting on set of the popular teen series. According to a source scooped by E! News, “Being around all of their mutual friends and hanging out together often made them realize they still have a strong connection and chemistry.” But this time, they’re taking it slow. “It’s going well and they aren’t putting too much stress on the relationship,” the source added. In the fall, the entire cast reunited in Vancouver to resume filming.

Rihanna + A$AP Rocky

OK, so they’re not technically a new couple — but, in our defence, the official news of Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s coupledom totally counts! Although the longtime friends were first spotted getting cozy at the Fashion Awards in London in December 2019, they never confirmed (or denied!) that they were an item. Recently, however, the rapper, 32, called the “Love on the Brain” singer, 33, “my lady” and “the love of my life” during an interview for the June/July issue of GQ.

“[It’s] so much better when you got The One,” he said. “She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones. I think when you know, you know. She’s The One.” (We’re not crying, you’re crying!)

Olivia Munn + John Mulaney

It’s been a whirlwind week for John Mulaney. Following the announcement of his split from wife of six years Anna Marie Tendler, comes the revelation that the comedian is dating actress Olivia Munn. It appears the couple have been well-acquainted for awhile. After Mulaney, 38, checked into rehab in December 2020, Munn, 40, took to Twitter to voice her support. “Sending SO MUCH love and support to John Mulaney. You got this,” she wrote.

Tendler, a hair and makeup artist, confirmed her split from Mulaney, saying in a statement, “I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage. I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery.” On his part, the former Saturday Night Live writer released a statement through his spokesperson. “John will not have any further comment as he continues to focus on his recovery and getting back to work.”

Kendall Jenner + Devin Booker

Looks like the romance between the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and the Phoenix Suns basketball player is steaming up! Jenner, 25, shared an IG story, depicting the two laughing and cuddling, with Booker, 24, on her kitchen countertop. The star added a simple white heart to the story. Booker shared his own brief clip of Jenner playing with a pup, and a pic of the two taking a nap together with said pup on a blanket in the grass. Not a bad way to spend a Valentine’s Day…though, let us not forget that the best sleep of your life happens with your dog (and not your boyfriend).

Avril Lavigne + Mod Sun

The “Complicated” singer, 36, and rapper, 33, appear to have taken their romance from the studio to real-life. The “Flame” collaborators appear to be official after Mod Sun was seen sporting a neck tattoo of Lavigne’s name, according to TMZ. The Minnesota native has previously dated Bella Thorne, while Lavigne was married to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whiley and later, Nickleback singer Chad Kroeger.  


Kourtney Kardashian + Travis Barker

A new Kardash love may be in the works! Big sis Kourtney, 41, and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker are reportedly a new item. And the couple began seeing each other romantically, after they were brought together in the sweetest way possible: their kids. The bond between the two apparently evolved from a friendship to a romantic relationship thanks to their kids. Kardashian shares three children with ex Scott Disick: sons Mason, 11, and Reign, 6, and daughter Penelope, 8, while Barker coparents son, Landon, 17, and daughter Alabama, 15, with his ex-wife Shanna Moakler.

Both families live in the same neighbourhood and as the kids grew closer, eventually so did Kardashian and Barker. A source told Us that the couple “have been close friends for years and have been dating for a couple of months. Travis is very smitten with Kourtney and has been for a while.”

Michael B. Jordan + Lori Harvey

That’s right, folx: People magazine’s reigning Sexiest Man Alive is officially off the market – and with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, no less! The Creed star, 33, and model Lori Harvey, 24, step-daughter of talk show host Steve Harvey, are Instagram-official after the duo shared some adorable snaps on their respective accounts on Jan. 11. The pics, which feature twinkly Christmas lights in the background, were clearly during the recent holiday season. Rumours that the pair were an item first surfaced around American Thanksgiving after they were photographed at an Atlanta airport together.

Jordan, who has famously remained tight-lipped about relationships in the past, told People last year that his ideal partner would have “a sense of humour, true understanding … [and be] somebody that’s nurturing. I’ve got a list.” In recent years, Harvey has been linked to mogul Sean Combs and rapper Future, but never officially went public with either.

Harry Styles + Olivia Wilde

The new year got off to a wild(e) start when the world was gifted these images of Harry Styles, 26, and Olivia Wilde, 36, holding hands while en route to a friend’s wedding in early January.

So, when exactly did this all happen? Back in September, it was announced that Wilde had cast the Grammy-nominated artist as the lead in her upcoming directorial film, Don’t Worry, Darling. Replacing the ousted Shia LaBeouf, the role will be the first time Styles has appeared in a film since his acting debut in Christopher Nolan’s 2017 Second World War drama, Dunkirk.

In November, media picked up on Wilde’s split from longtime fiancé Jason Sudeikis. The couple share two young kids together. A source told ET Canada, “It’s been amicable and they’ve transitioned into a great co-parenting routine. The children are the priority and the heart of the family’s relationship.” Although many question the timing of events, sources close to the former couple reveal they’d gone their separate ways almost a year ago already.

In early January, the bombshell photo of Wilde holding hands with Styles in Montecito, California went viral – leaving fans of the gender-bending singer heartbroken to the point that many angrily took to Wilde’s Instagram account to mock their 10-year age gap. Wilde was previously married to Italian filmmaker Tao Ruspoli while Styles has previously been linked to Kendall Jenner, Nicole Scherzinger and French model Camille Rowe.
