One Direction star is spotted out in New York with the country singer

Any One Direction fans hoping the romance between Taylor Swift and Harry Styles had fizzled out, look away now.

After pictures surfaced of the loved-up pair looking cosy at the BBC  Radio 1 Teen Awards in October this weekend, they were spotted on a date in New York’s Central Park.

She is expected to watch One Direction perform in their gig at Madison Square Garden tonight.

They joined an older couple and their baby, which Taylor, 22, held on her lap and doted on.

The US X Factor presenter Mario Lopez stoked the rumour mill when he said he had spotted Taylor and Harry, 18, walking hand-in-hand during rehearsals for the show’s live results in November. 

‘So Taylor Swift and Harry from One Direction – you heard it here first. 

‘They’re officially hanging out, I can say that much.’

The romance was met with some scepticism when rumours surfaced that Taylor was encouraging it just to make ex Conor Kennedy jealous. 

Taylor has previously dated Jake Gyllenhaal, Taylor Lautner and John Mayer.
