The former One Direction singer and the American actress were first linked a year ago – and now the British star is said to have introduced his beloved to his mother, Anne
It has been a year since reports first emerged that Harry Styles and Olvia Wilde were dating and it sounds like things are getting more serious for the couple.
Fans of the 27-year-old former One Direction singer may not have been surprised to see him linked to 37-year-old mum-of-two Olivia as he has long held a reputation for enjoying the company of older ladies.
However, some might be surprised to learn that Harry is said to be taking this current romance more seriously than any of his previous relationships.
Harry is said to have introduced Olivia – who shares a seven-year-old son named Otis and a five-year-old daughter named Daisy with ex-boyfriend Jason Sudeikis, 46 – to his own mother, Anne, which is regarded as a major step for the couples’ relationship.
A source told The Sun: “This looked like quite a showbizzy thing at first, two glamorous people hooking up but now it’s obviously a lot more than that.
“They held back a bit at first but now that things are more settled the time was right to do the next thing.
“It’s really exciting for them – and for Harry it’s the most serious he has ever really been about somebody.”
The sun also reports that Harry has grown close to Otis and Daisy.
Meanwhile, some fans have taken the fact that Olivia has met Anne to be a clue that Harry plans to marry his girlfriend at some point in 2022.
Olivia was previously married to Italian-American filmmaker Tao Ruspoli between 2003 and 2011 – while her romance with Ted Lasso star Jason lasted from 2011 until 2020 when he was said to be “blindsided” by her sudden romance with Harry.
Harry, while never married, has a long history of dating women who are older than him – famously being linked in the past to Erin Foster, Tess Ward, Emily Atack, and the late Caroline Flack.
And also previously dated Kendall Jenner, Taylor Swift and Camille Rowe, among others.
While Harry has been relatively tight lipped about his current romance, Olivia has gushed about the happiness she has experienced while being linked to the singer.
She told Vogue: “it’s tempting to correct a false narrative. But I think what you realize is that when you’re really happy, it doesn’t matter what strangers think about you.

“All that matters to you is what’s real, and what you love, and who you love. In the past 10 years, as a society, we have placed so much more value on the opinion of strangers rather than the people closest to us.
“I’m happier than I’ve ever been. And I’m healthier than I’ve ever been, and it’s just wonderful to feel that.”
The pair previously faced rumours they had become secretly engaged earlier this year – while rumours they were planning to get married raged back in July when Olivia told enquiring paparazzi at an airport: “I’m never going to talk to you guys.”
