Nicola Peltz has gushed about her “angel” boyfriend Anwar Hadid.

The 22-year-old actress and the 17-year-old hunk – who is the younger sibling of model sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid – have only just started dating, but the blonde beauty is smitten with her new beau.

She told Women’s Wear Daily: “We’re hanging out. Honestly, he is an angel,” she gushed. “He’s such an amazing person.”

And the ‘The Last Airbender’ star was full of praise for Gigi, 21, and Bella, 20, who have made her feel like a part of the family.

She said: “He comes from such an amazing family. Gigi and Bella are so, so sweet. I just love his family so much.

They’re feminine, strong girls. To have that around is amazing.”

On January 20, the pair sparked speculation they were dating after they were spotted walking hand-in-hand in the Beverly Hills area.

At the time, a source said: “They are dating. It’s a fairly new relationship, but they are really good friends and part of the same group of friends.”

Earlier this month, the blonde beauty took to Instagram to share a photo of herself sitting on Anwar’s lap, but gave nothing away with her caption, which simply read: “taken by the queen @ellenvonunwerth (sic).”

Videos from Nicola’s birthday bash also surfaced last week which seem to show the pair holding hands at the dinner table as they cuddled up to one another to celebrate Nicola’s big day.

Last year, the ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ actress was romantically linked to pop megastar Justin Bieber, who reportedly wanted something “serious” with the beauty.

The ‘What Do You Mean?’ hitmaker met Nicola at Los Angeles hotspot The Nice Guy and invited her on a miniature golfing date and friends said at the time that Justin was smitten.

A source said: “Justin wants something serious with a girl again. He doesn’t want to f**k around anymore. It was a real date with her.”

Meanwhile, Nicola previously revealed she is “really close” to Anwar’s older sister Gigi, 21, and even got her blessing before appearing in her boyfriend Zayn Malik’s music video for ‘It’s You’.

She said at the time: “I was excited to meet Zayn. I’ve never met him before and I’m really close with his girlfriend, Gigi. I called her when I got the offer and she was like, ‘Oh my god.’
