A Friendship Turns Romantic for Anwar Hadid and Nicola Peltz

Anwar Hadid and Nicola Peltz have been spotted holding hands while walking in Beverly Hills this week. The scene ignited romance rumors that the two are more than friends.

E! News confirms that the 17-year-old little brother of Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid has been dating 22-year-old Transformer actress Nicola Peltz. Before that, the two were really good friends enjoying the company of famous pals like Nicola’s brother Will Peltz and Sofia Richie. It was only recently that the couple has been publicly displaying their fairly new relationship.

The pair seems to be flaunting their blossoming romance as they shared a photo captioned “Taken by the queen”, showing Nicola sitting on Anwar’s lap. In another Instagram post, the couple shared a photo of themselves cuddling up together on a couch. Nicola is seen cozying up and planting a sweet kiss on Anwar’s tattooed arm.

Added to that are screenshots from Snapchat capturing what seems to be the couple’s New Year’s kiss. Some videos also surfaced taken during the birthday dinner for Nicola showing him sitting close and holding the actress’ hands. What could be more solid evidence of their romance than that?

It’s not surprising for two people who started out as friends to elevate their relationship to the next level – romance. It just makes sense for Nicola and Anwar to move on to the next step to give romance a shot. Both attractive and successful, the young lovebirds share creative interests, making it easier for them to ignite a greater attraction.

Anwar has a modeling career and comes from a family of famous models, including mama Yolanda Hadid, who was on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills series. His older sisters, Gigi and Bella, have etched their own names in the modeling world. Nicola, who stars in several films and TV series, including Transformers: Age of Extinction and Bates Model, also tried some modeling stints. She was once romantically linked to Justin Bieber. It’s no wonder Anwar and Nicola have good fashion sense.

For two people who are used to being in the spotlight, it doesn’t bother them if their relationship hits the headlines. It is said when two beautiful and popular people stick to each other, it becomes news; when two people who dress well together, they stay together. Let’s leave them at that and wait for the love struck couple’s next move.
