While iconic celebrity friendship duos like Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift are quite commonly known, others seem to fly under the radar until they publicly post about their friendship – and then we're all, "Wait, what? Do they even know each other?" Just take Niall Horan and Hailee Steinfeld, for example.
While the two pop singers most likely run in somewhat similar circles, we didn't think they really had much of a relationship beyond, like, saying hi to each other at award shows and whatnot. Welp, it looks like we were all wrong. Turns out, Nialler and Hailz are super tight. So tight, in fact, that fans spotted the duo enjoying a night at the theater together in London. The pair went to see Hamilton together at West End and they seemed to have a blast hanging out.
Imagine sitting next to Niall and Hailee while watching the epic show that is Hamilton? Too much to handle. And this isn't the first time they've had a precious public display of friendship. The 24-year-old cutie literally dedicated an Instagram post to Hailee for her 21st birthday – and it was truly the sweetest message we ever did see. Okay sure, there's never a time Niall's pure soul isn't oozing kindness, but still. It was SO. FREAKING. GENUINE.
"Happy birthday to the loveliest person on the planet and one of my best friends @haileesteinfeld . Have no idea what the hell is going on in this photo. Love ya hails," Niall wrote on Instagram.
Ugh, how cute is he? So yeah, now you see why we're freaking out over here that we've all been sleeping on this friendship. It needs to be talked about more, and we're here to serve up some background info on these two. It appears as though their Twitter exchanges are limited. But the few interactions they did have were just lovely, really.
In October of 2016, Hailee gave Niall a shoutout for his song "This Town," and he tweeted back thanking her. Pretty standard celebrity Twitter convo, if you ask us. But could it be... they were they low-key besties at this time? Huh, our minds are blown.
Earlier this year when Niall took over Spotify's "Teen Party" playlist, Hailee was the lead image of the link he tweeted out. So naturally, she just had to respond – resulting in Niall teasing her, telling her she's a total geek.
So there you have it – the friendship pair you never knew you needed in life.
