Romance is certainly in full swing for Bella and Gigi Hadid’s younger brother, 17-year-old, Anwar Hadid. The model has confirmed that he is in fact dating 22-year-old actress, Nicola Peltz.

If the name sounds familiar that’s because just last summer, Nicola was quietly dating Justin Bieber. Things between the “Cold Water,” singer and the Transformers: Age of Instinction, actress got so serious at one point that he even flew her out a few times to see a few of the concerts part of his Purpose Tour and even to his hometown in Canada.

Things between Nicola and Justin eventually fizzled out, and not much is really known regarding their breakup since they were such a lowkey couple. Though it seems like there’s no bad blood between the two, seeing as no drama was ever reported.

Nicola and Anwar on the other hand seem to be a little more comfortable with being public with their new relationship, seeing as the actress confirmed they were a couple earlier this week via a very cute Instagram picture she captioned, “taken by the queen @ellenvonunwerth.”

Just days after making it official on social media, the two were spotted out having a lunch date in Beverly Hills, California where a source revealed that the two seemed, “very comfortable together,” as they talked throughout their meal.

The relationship between Nicola and Anwar seems to actually have started out from not only being friends first but also from running in the same social circle, which just so happens to include another one of Justin’s exes, Sofia Richie – who is very good friends with Nicola.

All were even in attendance for Nicola’s birthday dinner earlier this month, where the model and actress sat beside one another throughout the evening, holding hands.

Looks like we’re going to have to keep an eye on social media, and see just how public these two are going to be with their relationship.
