Harry Styles first hit our screens in 2010 on the UK’s X Factor when Simon Cowell plucked the then-16-year-old and four fellow hopefuls ( Zayn Malik, 28, Niall Horan, 27, Louis Tomlinson, 29, and Liam Payne, 27) on to a stage together.

And while an artificially-created boyband seems like a recipe for arguments, power-trips and just all round incompatibility, One Direction quickly became the biggest boy band on the planet. Nice work, Si.

The band eventually went on hiatus in January 2016, just a year after Zayn left to pursue a solo career, and while many Directioners are holding out for a reunion, the boys seem to be doing alright on their own.

Perhaps none more so than Mr. Styles who has released two highly successful albums, with his Sophomore project breaking the record for the biggest sales debut from an English male artist in the US.

He’s also starred in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, co-chaired the Met Gala and won a Grammy. Alright, we get it Harry, you’re talented.

How old is Harry Styles?

Harry Styles was born on 1st February in 1994. This makes him 27 years old and an Aquarius. For all you astrology buffs out there, that means he’s intellectual, thoughtful and charismatic. Tick, tick tick.

Where was Harry Styles born?

Harry was born in Redditch, Worcestershire, England to Anne Twist and Desmond Styles. When he was a child, he and his family (including his older sister Gemma) moved to the village of Holmes Chapel in Cheshire.

His parents divorced when he was 7 years old; Anne later remarried to Robin Twist in 2013, who sadly died of cancer four years later.

Who is Harry Styles dating?

Harry Styles is reportedly dating actor and filmmaker Olivia Wilde, who is ten years Harry’s senior. The pair sparked dating rumours in January after they were spotted holding hands at a wedding. Thus, Holivia was born.

Harry and Olivia were originally linked due to their joint involvement in the American Psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling, directed by Olivia herself. Harry is playing the part of Jack, husband to Alice (played by Gen Z’s comfort person, Florence Pugh).

The 37-year-old was previously engaged to Ted Lasso star Jason Sudeikis with whom she shares two children, Otis and Daisy. The pair began dating in 2011 and got engaged in 2013, before a source revealed they split in 2020.

For the most part, both Harry and Olivia have refrained from commenting on their relationship, save from the director’s Instagram tribute to the Kiwi singer back in February after filming wrapped.

Sharing a black-and-white photo of the 27-year-old atop a vintage car, Olivia wrote, “Little known fact: most male actors don’t want to play supporting roles in female-led films. The industry has raised them to believe it lessens their power (i.e financial value) to accept these roles, which is one of the reasons it’s so hard to get financing for movies focusing on female stories.

“No joke, it is harrrrrd to find actors who recognize why it might be worth it to allow for a woman to hold the spotlight. Enter: @harrystyles, our “Jack” . Not only did he relish the opportunity to allow for the brilliant @florencepugh to hold center stage as our “Alice”, but he infused every scene with a nuanced sense of humanity.

“He didn’t have to join our circus, but he jumped on board with humility and grace, and blew us away every day with his talent, warmth, and ability to drive backwards. 👊”

Is Olivia Wilde Harry’s first girlfriend?

Nope. Like we said, Aquarius men are very charismatic…

His most notable relationship was with 31-year-old model Camille Rowe back in 2017. While the pair ultimately parted ways after a year of dating, it seemed to be an amicable breakup. Plus, the 31-year-old inspired his Sophomore album, Fine Line, which is full of certified bangers – thank you for your service, Camille.

Before this, Harry appeared to be in an on-again-off-again relationship with model Kendall Jenner. We’ll never forget when Twitter went into a Hendall meltdown when the pair were spotted in St. Barts over the 2016 New Year.

And we can’t forget about Taylor Swift back in 2012. The musicians had a short but sweet romance, reportedly dating for only a few months before calling it off. Sad news for them, but fantastic news for their respective and successful discographies.

Apart from this trio, Harry has also been linked with the likes of American-Japanese model and actress Kiko Mizuhara, 30, model Georgia Fowler, 29, Townes Adair Jones, 24, model Nadine Leopold, 27, actress Emily Atack, 31, and the late UK Xtra Factor presenter Caroline Flack, who would have been 41. 

Harry has been notoriously private about his relationships in the past. In an interview for Rolling Stone back in 2019, the Fine Line musician explained why he’d rather let his music do the talking.

“It’s not like I’ve ever sat and done an interview and said, ‘So I was in a relationship, and this is what happened.’ Because for me, music is where I let that cross over. It’s the only place, strangely, where it feels right to let that cross over.”

Does Harry Styles have new music coming out?

You betcha.

Yes, lately he might have been busy acting up a storm and enjoying a hot girl summer (TikTok’s words, not ours) in Italy with Olivia, but the Sign of the Times singer has teased some new tunes and we are absolutely ready.

While some fans were hopeful that the 27-year-old would be collaborating with Truth Hurts singer Lizzo, it looks like that was merely a rumour.

Buuuuut, when announcing his rescheduled Love On Tour dates, Harry did confirm that Fine Line would not be the end of his discography.

“I will be sharing more news soon about shows across the globe, and new music,” the Aquarius wrote.

Knowing Australia’s luck, the news will drop when we’re sleeping like Taylor Swift’s red vault puzzle did. Nevertheless, we can’t wait.
