We've all accepted that Summer 2018 (opens in new tab) is the Summer of ~Love~ (opens in new tab), right? Let's just go ahead and add Bella Hadid and The Weeknd to the list of lovestruck celebs affected by the magic of Summer 2018, shall we?
No, they're not engaged (opens in new tab) like Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra (opens in new tab) or Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin (opens in new tab) or Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson (opens in new tab). They aren't even technically officially back together (opens in new tab)—but they certainly aren't hiding that they're once again super feeling each other, either.
After months of meeting up for dates all over the world and making oh-so-casual appearances on each other's social media, the (almost definitely on-again) couple took to their respective Instagram stories to gush about the sweetness of their ~love~ (or at least of their ~intense like~).
Here's Bella's post, a simple black-and-white photo of The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye), captioned "Sugar." Unless she's really close to the bodyguard chilling by the door in the background or way more into cars than we realize, Bella appears to have ascended to the pet name stage of the relationship.
Abel posted a photo of his own, which appears to show Bella in silhouette on an airport runway with the sunset in the background. His caption? "So sweet." Just like everything about these pictures.
Bella and Abel reportedly first reconnected at Coachella in April (opens in new tab). They were later spotted kissing at the Cannes Film Festival (opens in new tab) and then hung out in France for more intimate dates (opens in new tab). They reportedly celebrated the Fourth of July together at Abel's Los Angeles mansion (opens in new tab) and then publicly galavanted around Tokyo (opens in new tab) together before reports surfaced that they were exclusive again (opens in new tab). We're one gushy Instagram grid post or red carpet appearance away from this being all but undeniable.
