Meet Bella Hadid's boyfriend.

The model has been dating Adan Banuelos, a decorated Mexican-American equestrian, since the fall of 2023.

Hadid was first seen with Banuelos in October 2023 when TMZ shared photos of the pair kissing in Fort Worth, Texas, following her split from art director Marc Kalman.

Since then, the model has shown public support for her boyfriend, posting sweet tributes on social media and cheering him on at his equestrian events. Most recently, she was by his side when he was named champion in March 2024.

Hadid's latest public outing came on the heels of her return to modeling after a long break to prioritize her health. In January, she graced four different covers of Perfect Magazine’s Spring/Summer 2024 issue — and she also art-directed the photo shoot.

Banuelos has made a big name for himself in the equestrian circuit. Recently, Banuelos won big at the American Performance Horseman on March 8, 2024, as he defended his 2023 title in the cutter division, taking home the $100,000 prize.

“Last year was an eye opening experience for me," Banuelos said before he showed. "It was something that none of us have ever experienced before and to be fortunate enough to be back here this year, I don’t have the words to say how grateful I am and how blessed I am to be here and thank you to everybody that helped me along the way."

Banuelos' victory at the prestigious competition marked the second year in a row he clinched the American Performance Horseman title.
