Romance rumors surrounding Taylor Swift and Harry Styles get louder after the two were spotted taking a stroll at Central Park Zoo in New York recently. The 22-year-old country/pop singer and the 18-year-old boybander seemed to enjoy each other's company.
Taylor and Harry were seen engaged in conversation throughout the outing. They were joined by his stylist Lou Teasdale, her fiance Tom and their baby Lux. At one point, she sat next to the One Direction member with the kid on her lap while chatting with him.
Pictures of their date have soon made their ways on the internet via Twitter and Instagram. Taylor wearing her hair in a ponytail was bundled up in a sweater, jacket and jeans, while Harry kept himself warm in denims, a beanie and a two-layer top consisting of a t-shirt and hooded jacket.
" 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," a source told E! News.
The romance rumors between the two young stars were sort of confirmed by "The X Factor (US)" host Mario Lopez in mid November. Back then, the presenter revealed that Harry and Taylor held hands at a rehearsal for her performance on the singing competition.
"During rehearsals, Harry from One Direction came and slapped me on the back, and said, 'Hey, Mario, how ya doing?' And I said, 'What are you doing here?' And he sort of [pointed] toward Taylor," Mario spilled. "[They're] officially hanging out, I can say that much."
A different eyewitness tells E! News, "Harry is there with her now. She is doing rehearsals this afternoon. And he is in her group. He watched her onstage going through her performance. He was sitting with her mom and the rest of her entourage."
The insider added, "After she finished, he went up to the stage. They were joking and laughing. He picked her up and threw her over his shoulder and carried her off."
Taylor has reportedly had a crush on Harry after she met him at the backstage of Kids Choice Awards last spring. Rumors that they're dating was swirling on the web ever since and refused to go away even when she's seeing Conor Kennedy last summer.
