Despite being caught showing some PDA and Olivia being filmed fangirling at Harry’s Love on Tour concerts, the unlikely couple have remained relatively mum about their relationship. As far as the public eye can tell, it appears as though the “Watermelon Sugar” singer and the Don’t Worry Darling director, who shares children Otis and Daisy with ex-fiancé Jason Sudeikis, are still going strong.
Olivia “is giving this relationship all she can because she truly wants to make it work,” a source exclusively tells In Touch. “However, it is not easy. Olivia and Harry are both working on projects, and Harry has a million things going on. He just wrapped his North American tour and will start on his European tour shortly, so he will be in Europe rehearsing and working on music.”
The Life Itself actress “balances her schedule with her children’s, as she has joint custody with their father,” adds the insider. “It’s tough for Olivia because in her heart she wants to be with Harry all the time, but it’s just not possible.”
According to a second insider, “there’s no need to worry” about the status of Olivia and Harry’s romance. “They can’t be together 24/7, but they’re still going strong. It’s just that they’ve both been busy, and she doesn’t like to drag the kids around unnecessarily,” the source assured. “Harry completely understands.”
Olivia “puts her kids first and Harry respects that,” the insider added. “They love their alone time of course, but Harry really enjoys being with Otis and Daisy. Harry and Olivia have something special, and they know it.”
When the lovebirds do spend time together, they like to keep things low-key.
“I’ve always tried to compartmentalize my personal life and my working life,” the former member of One Direction explained to Dazed in an interview published on November 15. He provided no further comment about his relationship or the House actress.
The pair first met on the set of Don’t Worry Darling, a psychological thriller directed by Olivia and starring Harry and Florence Pugh.
In January 2021, fans were surprised when photographs of the pair holding hands at Harry’s manager Jeffrey Azoff‘s wedding were released. The British singer served as the officiant at the nuptials.
“Harry and Olivia had chemistry almost instantaneously on set,” a source told Us Weekly at the time. “It was only a matter of time before they got together.”
The romance began after the actress split from Jason. The Booksmart director and the Ted Lasso actor ended their relationship after nearly a decade together.
“They’ve been separated for months now and there really is no drama. They’re handling this like adults,” the insider told the outlet in January 2021. “It’s all about coparenting their kids, Daisy and Otis. That’s the priority for them.”
A source told Us that the “Sign of the Times” singer was not the reason for Olivia and Jason’s uncoupling.
While the couple have tried to keep their relationship under wraps, they were spotted packing on the PDA in Italy in July 2021.
“He makes her really happy. It’s like he’s brought out this giddy side of her,” the source said. “The thing that works for them is that they don’t hide their relationship from the public. They don’t care who’s around watching them pack on the PDA.”
It also appears that Olivia and Jason’s children are also big fans of the pop star — and Harry’s mom is a fan of Olivia.
In November 2021, Olivia and her children attended Harry’s San Diego concert, where fans filmed the actress dancing with her children. At one point, the Dunkirk actor’s mom, Anne Twist, took Otis by the hand and bounced along with him as Harry sang “What Makes You Beautiful.”
“Anne says Olivia and Harry are the perfect match because she keeps him grounded,” a source told Life & Style. “She can’t wait for Harry and Olivia to have a baby and keeps saying, ‘I hope it happens soon!’ No one would be shocked if does because Harry for sure has baby fever.”
