OMG DYING. Selena Gomez and Niall Horan went on the most adorable date on the Santa Monica Pier– and an eyewitness gave HollywoodLife the EXCLUSIVE details! Niall even tried to win Selena a stuffed pony!
Literally, cannot. Selena Gomez, 23, and Niall Horan, 22, “definitely looked like a couple” on their date in Santa Monica on Dec. 5, an eyewitness EXCLUSIVELY revealed to HollywoodLife.com. Cuter yet, while enjoying their day of fun, Niall even tried to win Selena a stuffed animal! DEAD. But did the location of their date secretly throw shade at Selena’s ex, Justin Bieber, 21? We’ll explain.
“Selena and Niall definitely looked like a couple,” an eyewitness EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife of Selena and Niall on the Santa Monica Pier. “They looked really cute together and when I saw them in line for the roller coaster, they were holding hands and laughing. Everyone here was so excited when they saw them together. They were with some other people but seemed to really be doing their own thing.”
In addition to enjoying each others’ company, Niall wanted to go above and beyond to make Selena happy! “Niall was trying to win Selena a My Little Pony stuffed animal at the water gun race booth,” added the source. “He didn’t win one, but they both seemed really happy and when they weren’t holding hands, she had her arm interlocked with his arm.”
After Niall valiantly attempted to win Selena a toy, they even rode the ferris wheel together, slaying us all with cuteness. “Selena and Niall were all cozy on the Ferris wheel together,” added the source. “That’s when people really noticed them.”
Now, how does Justin factor into this? Well, it turns out Justin frequents the very pier where Selena and Niall had their date! “Justin Bieber has been here a couple of times,” an employee of the pier EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “He was here in September.” It’s unclear whether Selena and Niall knew beforehand that Justin has hit up the pier before, but interesting nonetheless!
What do you think, were Selena and Niall throwing shade at Justin? Do you like them as a potential couple?
