Is it just me, or is it getting harder and harder to keep up with new celebrity couples? While some couples are all over Instagram with each other, others play it so low-key that you have to dig through tabloids and paparazzi photos to even know if they’re still hanging out. There have been some interesting new celebrity couples recently, but I’m not convinced that all of them will last until the end of this sentence. Who’s bound to get engaged, and who’s just fucking around? These are my predictions about some of the most interesting new celebrity couples. I don’t have a crystal ball or anything, so lmk in the comments if you think any of my guesses are wrong. I can’t promise to care, though.
1. Hailey Baldwin & Justin Bieber
Once-upon-a-time fuckbuddies Hailey and Justin have recently reignited their relationship, and it seems to be going well. After they were spotted making out all over NYC, they’ve been seen hanging out more, including going to church together in LA. That’s a favorite date activity for Justin, but does it mean that he’s serious about Hailey? I have to say, the fact that they’re currently rocking the exact same haircut is both cute and disgusting. I think they’re having fun for the summer, but Justin will get distracted by the time Labor Day rolls around.
2. Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson
I’ve already spent way too much mental energy on Pete and Ariana’s absurd relationship, so I won’t rehash all the details here. Despite the questionable timeline of their relationship and engagement, I actually think they could be the real deal. Assuming they don’t fuck things up by getting married too soon, I could see them being together for a long time. Like, years. But also maybe they could cool it with the Instagram posts, just a little?
3. Dakota Johnson & Chris Martin
Dakota and Chris have been dating since last fall, so they’re the least new couple on this list, but we also know very little about them. I respect that they want to keep things private, but I’d also like more details please. Sources say they’ve been getting serious and that Dakota has recently been spending a lot of time at Chris’ place in Malibu. Dakota seems like kind of a wet blanket, but considering that Chris spent years with Gwyneth Paltrow, Dakota probably seems like Snooki in comparison. I see this relationship lasting for another six months to a year, but I doubt this will end in a wedding.
4. Anwar Hadid & Sonia Ben Ammar
We already discussed how the youngest Hadid was seen hanging out with this French-Tunisian model just days after making out with Kendall Jenner. Are they dating? Is this the beginning of a relationship? I have no idea, but I’m predicting one of two things: either Anwar has already blocked Sonia’s number and moved on to someone new, or they will be together for a long time. Actually no, I’m definitely going with the first one. He’s too young and too pretty to settle down, and he just got out of a serious relationship. Anwar is definitely DTF with any hot model right now.
5. Kendall Jenner & Ben Simmons
It’s been nearly a month since Kendall Jenner was first seen hanging out with NBA Rookie of the Year Ben Simmons, and a lot has happened. Mainly, things were complicated when Kendall was seen making out with Anwar Hadid earlier this month. This all feels so incestuous, but I’m also turned on? Since her night out with Anwar, Kendall has been seen with Ben multiple times, signaling that they’re at least a little serious. They even went grocery shopping together, which is such an adult choice of activities. Idk if Kendall is in the mood for anything major, but it’s the off-season for Ben, so it makes sense for them to have fun. Who knows, Maybe Kendall is destined to become a basketball wife?
6. Nick Jonas & Priyanka Chopra
This is truly one of the most random celebrity couples in recent memory, but they’re looking more and more real. After attending the Met Gala “as friends,” Nick and Priyanka quickly evolved into an It Couple, and now there are even rumors that they’re going to get engaged soon. I still feel strongly that Nick Jonas is meant to end up with me, so I can’t say I’m a fan, but Priyanka is an amazing catch. I can also see Nick getting along well with someone older, so maybe this couple is really going to last. I’m calling it now, they’re going to have beautiful babies together.

At this point, I’ve accepted that the Hadid sisters are just a part of my life. Gigi and Bella obviously have no clue I exist, but that doesn’t stop me from watching all their Instagram stories and Googling “Bella Hadid The Weeknd together” once every couple of weeks. You know, gotta check up on my fav couples of yesteryear. Until now, Bella and Gigi are the only Hadids I’ve really cared about (sorry Yolanda, you were never my favorite Housewife), but there’s a new day dawning—their brother Anwar Hadid is fully grown, and he’s making news all on his own.
First of all, Anwar Hadid is hot. He’s a model, because obviously everyone in this family was blessed by the hand of God (or a plastic surgeon @Bella). He currently has bleached blonde hair, which I’m into because he looks 10% like a strung-out homeless guy, and that is my truest type. I am the worst, and that is my truth. Anwar turned 19 last week, which makes sense because the most interesting famous people are usually too young to drink. Bella Thorne, I’m looking at you. Being an attractive model isn’t that special, but Anwar’s recent dating activity has put him on our radar in a whole new way, and it got us wondering…is it time to start paying attention to Anwar Hadid?
A couple weeks ago, we were very confused by the news that Anwar was spotted making out with none other than Kendall Jenner. This was strange for a few reasons. First of all, Kendall is like, best friends with Gigi and Bella, and if my best friend made out with my little brother I would literally vomit in my mouth. Second, Anwar literally just turned 19 and Kendall is 22. No no no! Think back to being a senior in college, and imagine making out with a high school senior. I know none of these famous people go to school, but that is weird!!! I’m not having it.
Third, Kendall was literally just seen with famous basketball guy Ben Simmons, so what is she doing with her tongue down Anwar’s throat? FOURTH, Anwar was also dating actress Nicola Peltz very recently, and no one even knew they had broken up until after the Kendall makeout. Obviously, I have a multitude of questions.
Let’s back up a little and focus on Nicola Peltz for a minute. You might not know her name, but Nicola is gorgeous, and has starred in movies and shows like Bates Motel and Transformers. She’s not like, an A-lister yet, but she’s working on it. She’s also 23, so why is she dating someone so young?? I just, ugh. She and Anwar first confirmed their relationship in January of 2017, and they were going strong until at least sometime in May. After the Kendall makeout, it was discovered that they had unfollowed each other on Instagram, which is the telltale sign of a rough breakup. Nicola also unfollowed the entire Hadid family, because she understands self-care.
So then the Kendall Jenner makeout happened, which threw a real wrench in this narrative. It never seemed like a serious thing, and that’s basically been confirmed. Kendall has since been seen with Ben Simmons again, which makes sense because “NBA player” is her real type, and “male model” was obviously just a distraction. Meanwhile, Anwar has also been seen out and about with a new lady friend who suspiciously looks a lot like Kendall. Her name is Sonia Ben Ammar, and she is a French-Tunisian model who is, of course, stunning in every way. Sonia and Anwar were recently seen outside a nightclub in LA, and he’s definitely not holding her like someone who’s just a friend.
So is Anwar dating Sonia? Are he and Kendall more than just friends? Will he be back with Nicola by the end of the week? It’s all so unclear, but I know that I’m too invested now to turn back. It’s officially happened, I’m obsessed with a third Hadid sibling. Yolanda Hadid better not be hiding anymore of these photogenic children, because I really don’t have time to devote to stalking more of her kids on Instagram.
