‘Tis the season for new celebrity romances it seems, and Bella Hadid is no exception.
The 24-year-old model sparked major relationship buzz earlier this week when she posted a photo of herself embracing art director Marc Kalman at the end of an Instagram carousel, with the caption, “Healthy, Working and Loved”.
While the pair were first linked last month by the Daily Mail, Bella and Marc had not publicly confirmed relationship rumours.
Following a two-year on-again-off-again relationship with The Weeknd, E! reports that Bella has officially moved on. “Now that they have become more serious, she has been excited to be seen with him,” a source close to Bella told the publication about her relationship with Marc.
The two have reportedly been together since last spring but kept it low-key until now.
Who is Marc Kalman?
Marc Kalman is an art director and clothing designer who’s best known for his work with rapper Travis Scott AKA Stormi’s dad. He’s has done branding and design work for several of Travis Scott’s projects as well as Milk Studios and the New York Times T Magazine.
It was through both their work in the fashion industry that Bella and Marc became connected. “He has been the creative behind many fashion projects and they have crossed paths several times,” says the E! source, who claims they met in New York City.
As with many celebrity beaus, like Ariana Grande’s Dalton Gomez and Olivia Rodrigo’s Adam Faze, Marc maintains a private personal life and social media presence so we don’t expect to see much of the couple.
Despite their low-key nature, Marc has allegedly already met Bella’s sister and fellow model Gigi Hadid, Gigi’s boyfriend former One Direction singer Zayn Malik, and her mother Yolanda Hadid.
We love to see it.
