The festive season is finally here, FreeAndSingle readers! As December arrives, the jingle bells are ringing and we’re all counting down the days ‘til the 25th with eager anticipation. Christmas isn’t just a time for mulled wine and mince pies though; after Valentine’s Day, it is also the biggest season of romance. After all, who doesn’t want someone to snuggle up with on a cold winter’s evening and kiss under the mistletoe on Christmas morning?
The Hollywood dating scene has been busy again this month, so settle down with a hot mug of cocoa and let us tell you about the latest celebrity couples you should be keeping an eye on through the festive period.
Moving on Fast
One of the biggest celebrity dating stories this month is the romance between One Direction’s Zayn Malik and Victoria’s Secret model Gigi Hadid. While rumours about Zayn and Gigi have been circling for a while, photos of them holding hands seems to confirm that they are in fact a couple, which has caused quite a stir.
Their new relationship comes just a three weeks after Gigi split from Joe Jonas. This has been met with criticism on Twitter, with some people saying she has moved on too fast. Gigi responded with a tweet saying “Sometimes life just happens… for whatever reason in whatever timing.” While we agree that three weeks is a rather quick turnaround, it’s true that love can strike at the most unexpected times.
After filing for divorce from her husband Gavin Rossdale amid cheating claims, we’re happy to say that Gwen Stefani has found a new love interest. The musician is now dating country singer Blake Shelton. The pair have been good friends for a while but grew closer while acting as coaches on American TV show The Voice.
Blake seems to be head over heels for Gwen and openly gushed about her on Thanksgiving, admitting that he was thankful for her for many of reasons. And it seems than Gwen feels the same way about Blake, revealing that he is a ‘pretty rad guy’. While it’s still early days, we think that this musical pair make a great couple and certainly one to keep an eye on.
Tying the Knot
Finally, we have some exciting news from Hollywood just in time for the festive season. Liv Tyler has announced her engagement to long term partner Dave Gardener. The couple prefer to keep their relationship out of the limelight, but Liv recently shared a sweet Instagram photo of herself and Dave in which she proudly showed off her sparkling engagement ring.
After her divorce from Royston Langdon, Liv confessed that she once had a philosophy that you should only get married once, but her relationship with Dave has changed her mind. It just goes to show that you should always give love a second chance.
