Bella Hadid is indeed having a hot girl summer, but not as a single hot girl.
As The Blast reported earlier this week, the supermodel sneakily “announced” she was seeing someone new.
When we say “announced,” we mean she snuck a picture of herself kissing a man into a stacked carousel of photos of herself!
The man Bella is kissing has been identified as famed art director Marc Kalman, and she appears to be having the “time of her life.”
No Ad to show
No, seriously, she captioned her picture that!
In the past, Marc has worked with Travis Scott on his album art and tour merchandise.
Over the past week, Bella has been in Cannes, France for the Cannes Film Festival and recently flew to Paris for Paris Fashion Week.
The model has been busy, but not too busy to show off her new beau.
A source close to Bella told E! News, the model is “completely smitten” with Marc.
The two were first photographed together in New York in June; however, the inception of their relationship has not yet been determined.
It is important to note, the two had previously met, before being pictured together, while working in New York City.
The source added, “he has been the creative behind many fashion projects and they have crossed paths several times.”
You know things are serious once evidence is posted on ‘the gram.’
The source continued to tell the outlet, “Now that they have become more serious, she has been excited to be seen with him. She is truly so happy right now.”
Bella hasn’t been photographed with any significant other since 2019 when she dating The Weeknd.
According to the E! source, Bella “enjoyed being single for a while, but she felt she was finally ready for a new relationship.”
Bella got approval from her big sis, Gigi Hadid. She commented on the kissing picture with a smiley face. It also appears Marc’s got the stamp of approval from her mom, Yolanda Hadid, and Gigi’s BF, Zayn Malik.
Marc has reportedly spent time with Yolanda, Gigi and Zayn on several occasions.
As previously mentioned, this is the first serious relationship for Bella since her on-off relationship with The Weeknd.
The couple dated intermittently from 2015-2019. They had broken up and gotten back together several times throughout that time period, and The Weeknd even dated Selena Gomez for about ten months in 2017.
Glad to see Bella back, happy and having the time of her life!
Alexa, play the “Dirty Dancing” soundtrack.
