One Directionstar was seen with the leggy brunette at Niall Horan's 18th birthday bash in London this week.
A friend of Louis told The Sun that after going on a few dates with the model, the What Makes You Beautiful singer was smitten: “Louis can't believe his luck. He is in awe of how fit she is. They went to see The Inbetweeners Movie together the other day and they've been out for a few secret dates. He's getting stuck in.
“She is a couple of years older than him but the lads in the band think she's the female version of Louis,” the friend said of Eleanor. “She is gobby, loud and confident but pretty laidback at the same time.”
It must be love, as the newspaper reports that Eleanor has already made friends with Louis’ mother Johanna Tomlinson on Facebook. The lucky lady, who is a few years older than Louis, is studying politics and sociology at Manchester University but has also had success as a model and has modelled lingerie for Hollister.
As previously reported on MTV, Louis has just moved into a luxury flat in London with his bandmate Harry Styles.
