Chart-topper Sam Smith is hooking up with NYC-based designer Christian Cowan.
The “Unholy” singer — who is in town to perform on “SNL” this week — was photographed walking hand-in-hand with Cowan and giving her a smooch on the head.
while the Daily Mail published the images, the outlet did not identify Cowan by name, describing him as Smith’s “friend” in the cozy photos.
Cowan’s glamorous look has appeared on celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Heidi Klum, Lil Nas X and “SNL” star Chloe Fineman.
It looks like the 25-year-old designer recently accompanied Smith, 30, to get a tattoo.
An artist at Marked Tattoo, Australia posted an image Smith, Cowan and some friends getting inked on Monday. The artist wrote: “At first I couldn’t believe it when I got an email saying Sam Smith wanted me to get a tattoo. Even that day I thought it was just a hoax… a One of my proudest moments as a tattoo artist!
The ink is of the red plant.
While it’s not clear when they first met, Cowan and Smith were photographed with President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris at the White House signing of the Honor for Marriage Act in December.
Smith’s new album, “Gloria,” is being released on January 27. The single “Unholy” with Kim Petras has already become an inevitable smash hit.
Smith, who identifies as non-binary and uses pronouns, recently told British GQ, “I’ve only had three boyfriends. They were all equally incredible teachers.
The recording artist added that she no longer “needs another person to direct me to me. I direct them to myself. Because I know who I am. And that’s beautiful. Every relationship is different.” It happens. Every two people are different. And I think it’s just learning our language together.”
A rep for the pair did not respond to a request for comment.
