Bella Hadid has been rumored for a while to be dating Canadian singer-songwriter The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye.

It seems the rumors were true, because on Sunday Bella posted an Instagram photo to her account that shows him with her big sister.

Bella Hadid's big sister, Gigi Hadid, presented The Weeknd with an award for Artist of the Year at the 2015 Much Music Video Awards earlier this past weekend. Bella shared a photo of the two on stage.

Gigi Hadid posted her own photo of The Weeknd, after presenting him with his award. She captioned it, "Congrats my brother."

It certainly appears--at least via social media standards anyway--that Bella Hadid and The Weeknd are an item. It seems like Gigi Hadid approves of her little sister's relationship, too. Not only did she share his picture--she called him her brother.

A source tells E! News that Bella Hadid and The Weeknd met long before they were first spotted together at Coachella. It was at Coachella, however, that they really got to know each other well.

Those same sources say the relationship is "still new," but it certainly appears to be going well for Bella Hadid and The Weeknd.
