Who is Josh Allen’s girlfriend? Hailee Steinfeld dating Bills QB, is in Taylor Swift’s ‘squad’

Who is Josh Allen’s girlfriend? The Buffalo Bills quarterback has reportedly been dating actress-singer Hailee Steinfeld for nearly a year, though their romance hasn’t gotten as much attention as Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Allen is the star QB for the Bills, leading Buffalo to the NFL playoffs for the fifth year in a row. The 27-year-old athlete grew up near Fresno, California, and played college football at the University of Wyoming before being selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He’s also known for his love of golf, specially-branded products like Josh’s Jaqs cereal, and appearances in dozens of TV commercials.

Who is Hailee Steinfeld?

Steinfeld, 27, is primarily known for her acting career, appearing in films and TV shows like “Pitch Perfect 2,” “Pitch Perfect 3,” “Bumblebee,” “True Grit,” “The Edge of Seventeen,” “Charlie’s Angels” and “Dickinson.” She also played Kate Bishop in “Hawkeye” and “The Marvels,” plus voiced Gwen Stacy in the animated blockbusters “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” and “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.”

As a singer, Steinfeld has released two albums and performed in some of her onscreen roles like “Begin Again.” Her music career includes pop hits “Starving” (with Grey and Zedd) and “Let Me Go” (with Alesso and Florida Georgia Line) — both of which have more than 1 billion streams on Spotify — and songs like “Most Girls,” “Capital Letters” (with BloodPop), “Love Myself,” “Coast” (feat. Anderson .Paak) and “SunKissing.”

How long have Josh Allen and Hailee Steinfeld been dating?

Steinfeld and Allen were first spotted on multiple dates in New York City in May 2023. She has since reportedly appeared at several Buffalo Bills games, including at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park and in London, and went shopping with Allen’s mom at a local clothing store in Buffalo.

During a red carpet interview at the Golden Globe Awards last week, Steinfeld showed support for Allen when USA Today’s Ralphie Aversa, a Syracuse University alumnus from the Buffalo area, displayed a Stefon Diggs jersey and asked how she was feeling about the Bills’ regular season finale against the Miami Dolphins.

“Real good,” she said. “Wrong number, though,” Steinfeld added. (Diggs wears No. 14 and Allen wears No. 17.)

This is the first high-profile romance for Allen, who previously dated Brittany Williams, a former Fresno State cheerleader who grew up in the same town as Allen. She reportedly unfollowed him on Instagram early last year and removed all photos of them together.

Allen has tried to keep the relationship private, criticizing paparazzi that snapped photos of him kissing Steinfeld on a romantic vacation in Mexico during the 4th of July holiday.

“I just, like, felt this gross feeling,” he told the “Pardon My Take” podcast in August. “Insecurity. No privacy. [I was] like, ‘What is wrong with people?’”

Why does Taylor Swift get so much attention when she attends NFL games?

Swift is one of the biggest stars on the planet, grossing more than $1 billion in 2023 on her “The Eras Tour,” so “low-profile” isn’t much of an option for her. In fact, she embraces it, wearing red and gold gear as she cheers on her boyfriend Travis Kelce at Kansas City Chiefs games — including when the Chiefs played the Bills at Arrowhead Stadium in December.

She’s also been partially credited with boosting NFL viewership by 7% this season, inspiring her fans to watch more football games to see if TV cameras will show her.

Funnily enough, Steinfeld was part of Swift’s “squad” back in 2015 (during her “1989″ era). Swifties know all too well that Steinfeld appeared in Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video and was spotted frequently with Swift and her cadre of celebrity friends, including Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, Martha Hunt, and Blake Lively.

Does that mean Swift and Steinfeld will be hanging out together when the Bills host the Chiefs in the AFC divisional round on Sunday? Steinfeld told Seventeen magazine in 2016 that she considers Swift a friend, but “I think people think we spend a lot more time together than we actually do.”

The Chiefs will play the Bills at Highmark Stadium near Buffalo on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET. The winner will advance to the AFC championship game.
