HARRY Styles and Taylor Swift gaze adoringly at each other as they go public on their romance with an open air date.
The loved-up singers strolled through New York’s Central Park yesterday, stopping to chat to some kids and to watch the sea lions at the zoo.
They seemed to be enjoying each other’s company, laughing and talking before joining by Harry’s stylist Lou Teasdale, her fiance Tom and their baby Lux.
Taylor, 22, couldn’t resist cuddling the tot and carrying her through the zoo.
And Harry used the classic pulling trick of showing how good he is with babies, holding the little girl as he showed her animals through the glass.
The teen lothario had invited his new love to One Direction’s gig at Madison Square Gardens tonight.
The Country singer flew out from Los Angeles after performing at Saturday’s Jingle Bell Ball so she could share some downtime with the 18-year-old ahead of the biggest gig of his career.
Fans rushed to Twitter to post pictures of the lovebirds on their date, with one writing: “Just saw Taylor Swift. Holy c**p!”
Another wrote: “Um I just saw Harry Styles and Taylor Swift walking together in Central Park.”
And a third tweeted: “I JUST MET HARRY STYLES AND TAYLOR SWIFT TOGETHER IN CENTRAL PARK.”
“Harry and Taylor were walking next to each other. They seemed happy to be together, talking and smiling. Taylor seemed to be in a great mood. Lou and Tom were walking next to them and pushing their baby Lux in a stroller.”
The X Factor USA co-host Mario Lopez first sparked rumours of a romance after announcing he had seen the pair “walking off hand-in-hand” during rehearsals for the singing competition’s live results show in November.
He added: “So Taylor Swift and Harry from One Direction — you heard it here first. They’re officially hanging out, I can say that much.”
Yesterday’s date suggests the couple – who briefly dated back in March – are ready bring their relationship out in the open.
At least she didn’t tell him they were Never Ever Getting Back Together.
