Louis Tomlinson and girlfriend Eleanor Calder have been together for three years – here's everything we know about their relationship.
Despite splitting for a couple of years, it’s clear the couple are extremely close and they’ve remained strong ever since getting back together.
Here’s everything you need to know about Louis and Eleanor, from how they met to how long they’ve been together…
Eleanor is a fashion blogger and model with a staggering 3.4 million Instagram followers.
The social media star is 28 years old and studied sociology at the University of Manchester after moving from her home in London.
She now lives in London, seemingly with Louis.
In January 2020 it was reported Eleanor and Louis were engaged, after a gossip site story spread among One Direction fans.
However, a representative for Louis quickly denied the speculation to the tabloids.
Directioners have a few different theories about when the pair met each other, with some saying Harry Styles was a mutual friend that introduced them and others claiming it was a university friend of Eleanor's who knew 1D's management.
Their first public outing was in 2011 at Niall Horan's birthday party. After their relationship was confirmed, fans referred to them as Eleounor.
Louis and Eleanor first got together in 2011, but split in 2015.
In 2017 they got back together and have remained in a relationship ever since.
Louis and Eleanor were together until March 2015 when they announced they had split, with reports at the time claiming their separation was down to the pop star's hectic work schedule leading him to be away from Eleanor for long periods of time.
People Magazine said: "They tried really hard to make it work but it was just impossible – he's away for nine months a year and they just grew apart."
Louis then had a son, Freddie, with close friend Brianna Jungwirth in January 2016 but in 2017, Louis and Eleanor reconciled.
Although the couple prefers to keep their romance out of the public eye, Louis has proved how in love he is with his girlfriend in past interviews.
In an interview on Lorraine in 2018, Louis spoke about his song ‘Back To You’ and linked it to his relationship with Eleanor.
He said: “There are some personal things that I relate to and contribute to lyrics. Nice to have something not as directly as relatable to me. The relationship with Eleanor is coincidental. But the relationship in the song is intense. Maybe they're not right for each other. I wouldn’t describe Eleanor as that. She’s ace.”
No, the couple don't have kids together, as the father-of-one shares Freddie with his ex, Brianna.
However, in an interview with a tabloid, earlier this year, he revealed he sees a future with Eleanor, saying: "One day, yeah, I’d imagine so. If you’re asking me if I’m going to marry her? Yes, I think so! And more kids, I’d say so.”
