Aw! In a new interview, Bella Hadid opened up about her deep connection with longtime boyfriend, The Weeknd. Not only did she confess her love for him, but she explained the big difference between The Weeknd and his real name — Abel.
Bella Hadid, 19, has become a household name in the model world, but when it comes to her love life there’s only one guy that matters. Bella has been dating 26-year-old R&B singer The Weeknd, real name Abęl Makkonen Tesfaye, for just over a year and in her new cover story with Glamour magazine she just couldn’t help but gush all about it.
“I’m dating Abel,” Bella shared with the magazine, clarifying that she doesn’t refer to him by his stage name at all. “I don’t see him as The Weeknd. I’m proud of The Weeknd and the music he makes, but I really love Abel.”
Not only is it really sweet that Bella is so head-over-heels with Abel, but it’s great to know that she can see the vast difference between performer The Weeknd and the man behind the music. It’s definitely important for both parties to see beyond the celebrity and into the real person they are dating, which must be why Bella and Abel’s relationship works so well!
During her interview, Bella also chatted a little bit about when the couple made their red carpet debut at the 2016 Grammys. “It was a big night for him. He has worked so hard, and he did so well that night,” Bella gushed. “As a girlfriend I wanted to be there to support him. Seeing him so happy when he won a Grammy made me so happy.” Aw! These two are total relationship goals.
