Now this is a rumor we're hoping is true! If all goes well, we might have a new young couple to ship in the near future. Niall Horan and Hailee Steinfeld were spotted at a Backstreet Boys concert in Las Vegas over the weekend – and now fans are convinced the two are definitely more than just friends. Based on video evidence, it sure looks like Niall and Hailee are headed in a romantic direction!

In video footage captured at the concert, we can see the Pitch Perfect star affectionally grabbing the former One Direction singer‘s neck after he sings with BSB's AJ McLean. Watch below!

There are also a few other videos of them posted on Twitter in which see Niall and Hailee dancing, singing, laughing, and goofing around with each other.

But, the fun didn't end there since a source told People that the pair headed to XS Nightclub after the concert. They hung out at a table with a few friends as they listened to Diplo‘s DJ set.

Over the past few months, the pair has been fueling dating rumors every time they're seen out together, though sources told People that the two are not officially dating just yet. Apparently, Hailee, who recently split from her longtime boyfriend, Cameron Smoller, isn't quite ready to jump into another relationship right away.

“She’s not actively pursuing anything,” an insider revealed to People. “Niall is really into her but she’s unsure if she wants to get into something new right away. They’ve been friends for a long, long time and are very comfortable with each other, but it’s nothing serious right now.”

If time is all Hailee needs, then we're sure Niall will be willing to wait. After all, he seems very smitten by her. In December, Niall shared the cutest happy birthday message – and TBH we're still swooning. “Happy birthday to the loveliest person on the planet and one of my best friends,” he wrote on Instagram. “Have no idea what the hell is going on in this photo. Love ya hails.”

THAT PHOTO. The last time Hailee was asked about the Niall dating rumors last month, she didn't exactly deny them. “I feel so lucky that [my fans] care enough about me to know what I’m doing every second of every day,” she told Us Weekly. “I am a very private person. I do love that I have the opportunity to share with them what I’m comfortable with and they’re there to listen and support me.”

We wonder what she'd say if someone were to ask her now…
