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!

Colton Underwood + Jordan C. Brown

The former NFL player and The Bachelorette and The Bachelor star made it Instagram official, celebrating boyfriend Jordan C. Brown’s 39th birthday. Underwood shared a series of IG stories, showing previously never-before-seen moments of their time together.  In the Stories, Colton shared captions such as “Happy birthday to my dog loving… family man,” and “Corn fed… love.”

Underwood recently opened up on Netflix’s Coming Out Colton. While Colton doesn’t divulge relationship details with the political strategist, he does delve into his relationship with Bachelor Nation’s Cassie Randolph. In 2020, the duo called it quits after less than two years of dating. Colton explains he hit rock bottom, sharing, “I thought that I found someone who could change me.” The split was not an easy one for Colton, who says he hit rock bottom post-breakup, but has since found new love in Jordan C. Brown. The two have even introduced each other to their respective families.

Kim Kardashian + Pete Davidson

Just as one celeb twosome calls it quits on Instagram, another comes out as Instagram official. (We think?) Pete Davidson celebrated his birthday with “adopted dad” Flavor Flav and a few other friends, including his alleged current flame Kim Kardashian (and they were wearing matching PJs, no less!). It looks like Kim K threw a birthday celly for the SNL comedian at mom Kris Jenner’s Palm Springs home. Davidson and Kardashian have been spotted together at various Hollywood hot spots and have even started showing some PDA since first connecting during the reality star’s SNL appearance in October. Although we still don’t know for certain if they’re an item, we’re thinking those matching PJs speak volumes.

It’s looking more and more like this duo are officially a thing! Bridgers, 27, and Mascal, 24, made a sweet debut on the red carpet at the LACMA Art+Film Gala on Nov. 6. This public debut comes after the “Punisher” singer and the Emmy-nominated Normal People actor were spotted getting cozy a week earlier on Halloween, although the duo first sparked dating rumours nearly a year-and-a-half ago.

Adele + Rich Paul

Adele has finally gone IG official with sports agent Rich Paul. There had been speculation that the Grammy winner, 33, was dating Paul, 39, when the two attended an NBA game back in July looking happy and carefree. Now, the two appear loved up in a new black and white snap showcasing them cozied up together in a photo booth. Adele kept things simple with a heart emoji as the caption, letting the world know that she’s happily seeing someone after her 2019 split from ex-husband Simon Konecki.

Zoe Kravitz + Channing Tatum

It looks like Zanning is real! The Magic Mike actor has been spotted cozying up to the High Fidelity actress, and the two look like they’re having so much fun. From bike rides to restaurant dates, they’re truly the couple we didn’t know we needed. The two were first linked in January when Kravitz filed for divorce from Karl Glusman, and since then the two have grown closer. Tatum will be the leading man in Kravitz’s directorial debut, Pussy Island, so we can look forward to cute pics of them whenever the film premiere happens.

According to People, a source says the pair have been enjoying their time together in New York. “They spent the weekend in N.Y.C., strolled around the city, met up with friends and visited the Guggenheim Museum,” they said. “They looked very happy. They have this cute and flirty chemistry.”

Malia White + Jake Baker

Below Deck Mediterranean‘s Malia White has been linked with engineer Jake Baker, who worked on season six of the series. (White previously split from co-star Tom Checketts in September 2020.) The rumours first started earlier this year when White and Baker were spotted on a double date with former boss Captain Sandy and her girlfriend.

Last year, White revealed to Us Weekly that she wasn’t ruling out “boatmances” in her future. “The people you work around are the ones you build these close relationships with. And for us, these may be the only people we meet for months at a time. So, you naturally develop feelings toward people.”

Liam Payne + Maya Henry

It looks like the former One Direction singer and model Maya Henry have rekindled their romance after announcing they’d split back in June. Less than three months after calling off their engagement, the pair were spotted departing a luxury yacht party together in St. Tropez.

Back in June, Payne revealed they couple were on the outs during an episode of Steven Bartlett’s the Diary of a CEO podcast. “I am indeed,” the singer admitted when asked if he was single. “I feel like more than anything at this point, I’m more disappointed in myself that I keep on hurting people… I’ve just not been very good at relationships. And I know what my pattern of things is with relationships, I feel at this point. I’m just not very good at them so I just need to work on myself before I put myself on to somebody else. And I feel like that’s where I got to in my last relationship.”

Well, it looks like Payne has done some deep thinking, and a lot of apologizing to Henry.

Thank you for making my brother happy,” and Romain Bonnet adding: “So happy for you guys! Finally people will stop with Jason and Mary hopefully.”

Bella Hadid posted a mystery man to her Instagram while glammed up in Cannes and fans quickly identified him as director Marc Kalman.

Tom Holland + Zendaya

A steamy car kiss has finally confirmed what many fans had been hoping for: Spider-Man co-stars Tom Holland and Zendaya are an item! Rumours had circulated for years about the two young stars thanks to their undeniable on-screen chemistry. Holland, 25, and Zendaya, 24, had been linked since 2017, with a source telling People that the couple were extremely private and trying to keep things out of the public eye. Zendaya had previously shut down any speculation by describing Holland as one of her best friends, but if we’ve learned anything from the Spider-Man films, it’s that sometimes friends can make the best lovers.

Demi Lovato + Noah Cyrus (we hope!)

Several months after the pair first sparked dating rumours, Demi Lovato, 28, and Noah Cyrus, 21, were spotted holding hands at Six Flags amusement park, adding fuel to the fire. Even before the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer came out as non-binary in May, they and Miley Cyrus’ younger sib teamed up to record the track “Easy” for Lovato’s Dancing with the Devil documentary. Page Six cited a source who previously stated that, “[the duo are] very close and have been hanging out,” suggesting this might just be a fling. The June 29 hand-holding sighting comes just a week after the pair performed for a YouTube Pride 2021 event, accompanied by The Trans Chorus of Los Angeles.

Renée Zellweger + Ant Anstead

Surprise! The Oscar winner, 52, and the British TV personality, 42, are reportedly coupling up. According to reports, the relationship is only a few week old — the pair first crossed paths in early June while filming the Disney+ series Celebrity IOU: Joyride, where Anstead and co-host Cristy Lee help celebs give a loved one the ultimate car transformation (think: Celebrity IOU with the Property Brothers, only with cars).

Anstead just recently finalized his divorce from HGTV Canada star Christina Haack with whom he shares 21-month-old son, Hudson. But don’t expect to hear (or see) all that much of Zellweger and Anstead in public. The Hollywood A-lister in notoriously private about her relationships, and has been previously linked to Jim Carrey and Bradly Cooper.

Kanye West + 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 + 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.”

Richie and Grainge have links to the music industry, with Richie being the daughter of famous singer and American Idol judge Lionel Richie, and Grainge being the son of Universal Music Group CEO Lucian Grainge.

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.
