So we're obsessed with Bella Hadid and Marc Kalman's relationship and clearly, the feeling's mutual as they've been inseparable lately—even jumping out of a plane together, yes really! Our Bella is looking pretty darn loved up, so here's a full debrief on Bella Hadid's boyfriend and their relationship so far!
Bella—the model and Y2K headband trendsetter—gave us the first glimpse into her new romance in July 2021, following her split with The Weeknd, with a few blurry Instagram photos that have since been deleted. But her attempts at secrecy were unsuccessful, as onlookers identified Marc Kalman fairly quickly.
Since their romance ruse was foiled it's been non-stop PDA, from cozy-looking walks in NYC, to adorable snaps of Bella from Marc's POV. She is truly his muse and it's not hard to see why, she's also the internet's muse, especially when it comes to fashion and beauty—take her signature 'Belle Hadid bun' for instance.
Now the pair have passed the one-year mark and they're still the epitome of couple goals, even most recently going skydiving together! So, here's what we know about Bella's boyfriend, Marc Kalman, plus all the latest developments in their relationship!
When did Bella Hadid and boyfriend Marc Kalman get together?
Fans got their first sneak peek at Bella's new man during her trip to France in July, 2021—très romantic!
Bella took the time between walking the runway for several big designers like Off-White and Jacquemus and serving some seriously notable red carpet moments—including show-stopping Schiaparelli and Jean Paul Gaultier gowns—to enjoy some low-key moments and gave her Instagram followers a glimpse of Marc in a joyful photo dump (which she has since removed from her profile).
"Time of my life ⏳🫀🍾 Healthy, Working and Loved ❤️🔥🌹," the model wrote. The last photo in the group was on a boat in the evening...in the arms of a mystery fella. Both seem incredibly lovey-dovey, smiling as they hug and go in for a smooch. Our interests were piqued for sure!
But, Bella cleverly decided to use a somewhat blurry snapshot, making it a smidge difficult to confirm who exactly she's attached to. Naturally, onlookers collectively lost it and had to find everything out about him. Eagle-eyed fans were quick to point out that the snapshot appears to be of 33-year-old creative director Marc Kalman. Can't fool the super sleuths among us, Bella.
Those discreet attempts failed later in the trip. Paparazzi caught Bella and Marc (opens in new tab) on a boat (again!) enjoying a steamy smooch. Bella is captured wearing a neon-hued top while Marc was shirtless and sporting sunglasses. Now, this seemed to be all of the confirmation fans needed.
Although she was photographed at the Cannes Film Festival solo, she was certainly glowing. At the time, sources also confirmed to E! News (opens in new tab) that the 24-year-old model is the happiest she's been since being attached to Marc, but apparently, the two are keen on keeping things quiet.
How did Bella and Marc meet?
Allegedly, Bella and Marc had a working relationship before a romantic one. The art director and fashion designer—who's worked with Travis Scott and A Bathing Ape—had been in contact for years as she tackled various projects.
However, following Bella's official split from The Weeknd, an on-again, off-again relationship that lasted for about three years, the model was ready to find someone new, and thus their love blossomed. The source further adds that Marc is a hit with Bella's family, and he's spent time with Bella's mom, Yolanda, and supermodel older sis, Gigi.
Since meeting the parents, Bella and Marc have been going from strength to strength—adorable couple snaps incoming...
