Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde are about to celebrate their one-year anniversary—can you believe it’s only been a year since that iconic first photo of them holding hands en route to a wedding happened?!—and it appears one year in, the musician and director are stronger than ever.
Sources close to the pair say the two “have a great relationship” and that not only have they met each other’s families but Styles is slowly getting to know Wilde’s two children, Otis and Daisy, who she shares with her ex Jason Sudeikis. Furthermore, Wilde has also met Styles’ mum, who lives in the UK. “Harry is slowly getting to know her kids,” a source tells People, adding on her end,”Olivia is also spending time with Harry’s mum.”
Wilde and Styles have both been busy this year, but have managed to keep the spark alive, despite the distance: Wilde is currently wrapping up a project with Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, while Syles has been performing his Love On Tour World Tour in the USA for the past few months. Back in November, fans spied Wilde’s children dancing side of stage at one of Styles’ shows, alongside his mum, Anne, who was also in attendance. Wilde’s family were photographed attending another of his venues the same month.

“[They try] to see each other as much as possible,” People’s source adds. Olivia has been flying nonstop between L.A., where her kids live, to join Harry on tour. She always seems focused on just making it all work. She is really Harry’s biggest fan.” The last part comes as no surprise: Wilde is constantly spotted wearing Styles’ merch and dancing proudly backstage at his gigs.
Though the pair have avoided speaking about their romance to the press, Wilde did say recently that she finds it hard to not correct the “false narrative” spun in the press, adding she’s the happiest she’s ever been in her life.
“It’s obviously really tempting to correct a false narrative. But I think what you realise is that when you’re really happy, it doesn’t matter what strangers think about you,” she said. “All that matters to you is what’s real, and what you love, and who you love.”
Styles briefly touched on his romance—or rather, why he won’t speak about it publicly—last month. “I’ve always tried to compartmentalise my personal life and my working life,” he told Dazed.
The couple met in November 2020 on the set of the forthcoming film Don’t Worry Darling which Wilde was directing and where Styles had a starring role. “Harry and Olivia’s relationship was an open secret on the set in Palm Springs,” a source told The Sun when their relationship was first revealed.
