Love is in the air for 2023, and we aren’t the only ones looking for romance this year: it looks like stars are falling in love (and lust), too. From the hottest new celeb flings to celebrities who have hard-launched their love and all the blossoming relationships in between, here are just some of our favourite new celebrity couples in 2023.
Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet
Just as fans were recovering from the news about Harry Styles and Em Rata (see below), reality TV star/makeup mogul Kylie Jenner and Academy Award nominee Timothée Chalamet decided to shake things up. That’s right: according to a post on the anonymous Instagram gossip account Deuxmoi, Jenner and Chalamet have been quietly dating for the last few weeks. The “blind item” stated, “Anon pls!! Multiple sources have told me that Timmy C has a new girl…Kylie Jenner.”
Although neither Jenner, 25, nor Chalamet, 27, have confirmed the rumours, that didn’t stop the internet from weighing in on the potential romance — and the reactions were… mixed.
The report comes three months after Jenner split from beau of five years, Travis Scott. The former couple have two kids together. Chalamet has previously been linked to Lily-Rose Depp and Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes Leon.
Luke Gulbranson and Tayshia Adams
Could we have a new reality television couple in the works? Summer House star Luke Gulbranson has sparked dating rumours with The Bachelorette‘s Tayshia Adams. As Us Weekly details, in a since-deleted photo shared by Gulbranson’s co-star Lindsay Hubbard, the pair were spotted subtly holding hands, as Gulbranson placed his right arm around Adams’ waist.
After posting the picture on Instagram over the weekend, Hubbard deleted it before reportedly resharing it with Gulbranson and Adams cropped out.
Adams was previously engaged to Zac Clark, who won her season of The Bachelorette, and Gulbranson was previously dating The Real Housewives of Potomac‘s Ashley Darby. Now, the pair have yet to comment on their rumoured relationship.
Harry Styles and Emily Ratajkowski
Emily Ratajkowski’s name has been on the tips of everyone’s tongue lately when it comes to new celeb couples. From Orazio Rispo and Eric André to Pete Davidson, model Em Rata has been romantically linked to a handful of celebs this year. But now, her and Harry Styles have broken the internet after videos surfaced of them locking lips in Tokyo, Japan, as Entertainment Tonight reports. Another video also depicts the duo dancing in the street together.
Avril Lavigne and Tyga
Less than two weeks after her split from her ex-fiancé Mod Sun, Avril Lavigne has seemingly gone public with Tyga. On March 6, the pair showed some PDA at a Paris Fashion Week party for Hunter Schafer’s brand new Mugler campaign, as E! News reports. During the event, Tyga was spotted kissing Lavigne, who wrapped her arms around his neck.
Over the last two weeks, Lavigne and Tyga have been spotted on multiple occasions, but this was the first time the pair shared a kiss in public.
Lisa Hochstein and Jody Glidden
In the middle of her recent divorce from Lenny Hochstein, which seems to lie at the centre of the new season of The Real Housewives of Miami, Lisa Hochstein has confirmed that she’s dating entrepreneur Jody Glidden, as Page Six details.
“I guess it’s sort of out of the bag,” Lisa told Entertainment Tonight. “Yeah, I’m dating. I’m dating this guy. He’s a great guy. He’s been super supportive of me.”
The reality TV star also shared that Glidden is “different to what I’m used to” before throwing some shade at Lenny. “[Glidden] has empathy, he cares, wants to motivate me to do better, be my best. So, it’s a lot of things that I’m not used to dealing with or used to having from my previous relationship.”
Shawn Mendes and Sabrina Carpenter
Following his infamous split from long-term girlfriend Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes has been spotted out with Sabrina Carpenter after they’ve been rumoured to be romantically linked, as Page Six reports. The outlet details that Mendes and Carpenter looked “smitten” running errands together, even though they didn’t show any PDA.
Their lowkey outing takes place just one week after celebrity gossip outlet Deuxmoi reportedly received an anonymous tip about Mendes and Carpenter’s newfound affection.
According to the tip, the singers allegedly seemed to be “verrry comfortable” while they were “clearly on a date” at Horses in Los Angeles a few days after Valentine’s Day.
Emily Ratajkowski and Orazio Rispo
Emily Ratajkowski has been spotted again with her former rumoured-beau Orazio Rispo on Friday. The model and New York-based DJ were seen smiling as they exited a wine bar in Manhattan together, as Page Six reports.
The duo appears to be dating again after Ratajkowski posted a cryptic TikTok with the caption that says: “What should you do when a situationship ends? Start another one” — allegedly suggesting her romance with Eric André has fizzled out.
Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny
Model Kendall Jenner and Grammy-winner Bad Bunny are romantically linked, according to Glamour. As the outlet reports, the Kardashians star and singer allegedly made out in a private club in Los Angeles and recently went on a double date with Jenner’s besties Justin and Hailey Bieber.
A source tells PEOPLE, that the new pair “were introduced by friends. He moved to L.A. a few weeks ago and bought a house. She likes him and is having fun,” the insider continues. “He is different from guys that she dated in the past. He is very charming.”
Florence Pugh and Charlie Gooch
Don’t Worry Darling star Florence Pugh was seen with a new man on Valentine’s day. US Weekly reports that she was spotted walking hand-in-hand with her mystery guy, who doesn’t seem to have a career in the entertainment industry. More photos showed the pair drinking beer at a restaurant, smoking cigarettes and hugging.
Neither have have made a statement about their relationship and the outing comes less than a year after her breakup from her age gap lover Zach Braff.

Emily Ratajkowski and Eric André
It looks like Emily Ratajkowski has gone Instagram official with her new love.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the model and Eric André seemingly confirmed romance rumours with a hard launch. As OK! Magazine reports, the comedian posted a photo of himself naked with Ratajkowski in the background taking the photo, in the nude as well.
The pair were first spotted on a date in New York City back in January, weeks after the My Body author had a brief fling with Pete Davidson.
Emma Chamberlain and Role Model
Although the couple has attended events together over the last few years, they’ve kept their relationship under wraps.
As the outlet reports, Role Model (AKA Tucker Pillsbury) first discovered the Youtuber on TikTok. “There was one specific TikTok where you were, you were in your bathroom and you were twerking…she was attempting to twerk in her bathroom, and it was to a Dayglow song, which those two things don’t exist together ever. And you surprised yourself cause I think your a– moved a little bit and you were…” He continues. “I fell in love with you.”
The couple went on their first date in 2020 after the singer sent Chamberlain a DM.
Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan
The Real Housewives of Miami star Larsa Pippen and Michael Jordan’s son, Marcus Jordan, have gone Instagram official, according to Page Six. While the pair were spotted taking part in some PDA last year, sparking romance rumours, Pippen has now posted a photo of herself and Jordan online.
The photo sees the new couple posing at the Jordan family retail boutique in front of an extravagant floral arrangement in the shape of Michael Jordan’s infamous number 23 jersey.
“Checks over stripes,” Pippen wrote in the caption.
Pete Davidson and Chase Sui Wonders
Bodies, Bodies, Bodies co-stars Pete Davidson and Chase Sui Wonders have been romantically linked after they were spotted packing on the PDA at Universal Studios Hollywood, as Us Magazine reports. A video posted by TMZ shows Davidson and Wonders cuddling and sharing a kiss on an escalator.
The pair were also caught holding hands on Revenge of the Mummy and walking around the park together.
On Jan. 21, the pair were spotted in Hawaii, according to E! News.
Davidson and Wonders had previously been seen getting food together on Jan. 9, where they allegedly exchanged some kisses, according to TMZ.
Selena Gomez and Drew Taggart
She once sang about being “sick of the same old love” and now it looks like the 30-year-old singer and actress may have found a new one.
A source told the outlet that the couple is keeping things “very casual and lowkey.” According to the insider, “Selena can hardly keep her hands off of him and they are having a lot of fun together.”
Taggart was previously in a relationship with Eve Jobs, the daughter of Steve Jobs.
Update: while the romantic whispers have been swirling, ET Canada reported on Jan. 20 that Gomez appears to deny the rumours via a now-deleted Instagram Story on Thursday. In the story, which featured a grey sky, Gomez wrote: “I like being alone too much,” and, “#iamsingle.”
Lori Harvey and Damson Idris
Model Lori Harvey and British actor Damson Idris have gone Instagram official, according to Cosmopolitan. Idris reportedly shared a photo of himself kissing Harvey on the cheek alongside the caption, “Happy Birthday Nunu,” and a heart emoji.
The sweet Instagram photo (and adorable nickname) comes after Idris and Harvey were spotted on a dinner date late last year. They were also later spotted at a friend’s birthday party together.
Harvey was formerly in a year-long relationship with actor Michael B. Jordan before they broke up.
Rozonda Thomas (Chilli) and Matthew Lawrence
Nostalgia alert: Rozonda Thomas (AKA TLC’s Chilli) and Boy Meets World star Matthew Lawrence are teleporting us back in time with their new relationship. Grab your Lip Smackers and your favourite scrunchie because Glamour notes that Chilli and Lawrence have been seeing each other for a few months, and they even spent Thanksgiving and Christmas together.
A rep for Chilli told TMZ that the pair “are in an exclusive relationship, moving past the friend phase just before Thanksgiving.” So, since he was able to get her number, it looks like Lawrence isn’t a scrub.
Camila Mendes and Rudy Mancuso
After seeming to soft launch their love on Instagram in November, it looks like Do Revenge star Camila Mendes and her Música co-star Rudy Mancuso are officially an item. According to Page Six, the pair was spotted enjoying a day in Miami Beach while “packing on the PDA in their first public sighting as an official couple.”
The Riverdale actress (who was previously linked with her co-star, Charles Melton) and her YouTuber beau appear to have fallen in love while working on Música, a project in which they both co-star and are executive producers (Mancuso also co-wrote and directed the rom-com).
Brad Pitt and Ines de Ramon
Actor Brad Pitt also rang in the new year with a new romance. As ET Canada reports, the actor celebrated the start of 2023 with jewellry designer Ines de Ramon in Cabo San Lucus, Mexico. According to the outlet, the two have been dating for “several months.”
A source shared insight into the budding romance with PEOPLE. “They are dating and having fun,” the source explained. “They have a good thing going on. There is no stress. Brad is enjoying it.”
The source went on to tell PEOPLE that the actor (who last year shared his struggle with “face blindness”) “is not seeing anyone else right now” besides de Ramon. “He is spending more time with Ines,” the source told the outlet. “He is very happy.”
