Niall Horan has had the title of One Direction bachelor locked down for years, but it looks like he's had something going on with Australian actress Olympia Valance all this time. WHO KNEW?! While he was in 1D, Niall's bandmates all had serious girlfriends fans knew all about but Niall has kept his love life lowkey. And now that he's solo, well he's still keeping mum on who has had his heart and he won't even fess up who his love songs were inspired by! But now, we have confirmation Niall has been casually dating someone, straight from the lucky girl herself, since Olympia has opened up in a new interview all about her romance with the "This Town" crooner.
Olympia, who plays Paige Smith on the long-running Australian soap opera Neighbours, spoke to The Sun all about her many secret dates with Nialler.
"We just met in Australia and we’ve been messaging ever since and yeah we have hung out together a bit. We’ve known each other for a couple of years now. He obviously spends a lot of time in Australia with his cousins. We are quite close. I see him when I come to London and he sees me when he’s in Oz," Olympia shared.
OK, so this has been going on for a couple of years?! Wow, Niall really is the king of keeping his love life under wraps, that's for sure. The pair was spotted together last year at a cricket game when Niall was in Melbourne and Olympia even posted a selfie of the pair on her Instagram story in honor of Niall's 24th birthday last month.

Now before you think Niall has been having this secret girlfriend all this time, the 24-year-old beauty went on to say that currently, she is not in a relationship with anyone.
"I am single at the moment. I've been single pretty much all this year and it's been really nice. I've always had problems being on my own before and now I'm actually like, I really love this and just not having anyone to answer to. Just being free is great and that's what I really want to be - just being a free spirit," she said.
Huh, okay so it seems like whatever romance she had with Niall was definitely more on the casual side of things and they weren't an "official" item so to speak. It will be interesting to see what's next for the pair.
