Niall Horan and Barbara Palvin sure look like a couple.
Then again, those stairs are pretty steep and walking in high heels isn't always easy—even for a Victoria's Secret model! One thing that is clear, though, is that the Hungarian beauty, 20, was holding hands with the One Direction boy-bander, also 20, as they left X Factor U.K.'s Dec. 15 wrap party at London's One Marylbone club. But, Directioners, take heart! Niall's rep tells E! News he and Barbara are "just friends," so no need to start thinking up celebrity couple names.
Sunday night's afterparty isn't the first time the twosome have enjoyed one another's company, though. On Friday, Dec. 13, they reportedly had a sporty date at a Top Golf center in Hertfordshire, which is just north of London. Niall and Barbara also reportedly caught a screening of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire last month in London.
In general, though, iIall is pretty tightlipped about his love life! He mock proposed to Katy Perry in Tokyo and later quipped, "Who doesn't have a crush on Katy Perry?" But that's about as much as the Irish cutie will share.
But for now, Directioners, let's consider it an early Christmas miracle that Niall is still on the market!
