It appears Louis Tomlinson is kicking off his One Direction hiatus with a new romance.

Fans spotted the father-to-be with reported girlfriend Danielle Campbell in her home state of Illinois on Monday, acting very much as a couple.

Tomlinson, 23, and Campbell, 20, enjoyed a visit to local ice cream parlor Oberweis in Chicago where he affectionately wrapped his arms around The Originals actress. Their day together was a fun-filled one as they were also seen walking hand-in-hand to yogurt chain Red Mango after dinner. Earlier in the day, fans caught the pair shopping and walking her dogs in her hometown of Hinsdale.

Throughout his dates, the boy band member even took time to snap several selfies with fans.

Tomlinson and Campbell continue to fuel romance rumors after their many nights out together including a date at Millions of Milkshakes in Hollywood earlier this month. Campbell’s costar Keelin Woodell also posted a selfie of the couple-in-the-making back in November.

The British hearthrob is expecting a baby with Los Angeles-based stylist Briana Jungwirth in early 2016.
