Nicole was pictured out for the first time with Stephen in March 2019 and the couple have been dating since November 2018.
Stephen is thought to be the commercial director at Facebook and is said to be close friends with the social media site’s founder Mark Zuckerberg.
The singer went Instagram official with Stephen in February 2019 when they shared a picture of themselves in matching dressing gowns at Soho Farmhouse.

Nicole and Liam divorced in April 2014 after splitting in 2013 – she discovered he had fathered a child with American journalist Liza Ghorbani.
Just as Nicole has moved on, the Once singer is engaged to his partner Debbie Gwyther.
Back in April 2018, Paddy McGuinness’s wife Christine shared an Instagram post about ‘karma’ , which appeared to be directed at love rival Nicole in the wake of her then feud with Lily Allen.

Love: Nicole first confirmed the romance when she shared this picture of herself and Stephen during a trip to the Soho Farmhouse, back in February 2019
Mother-of-three Christine and Paddy briefly split after he enjoyed a secret night out with Nicole back in February 2018, while she stayed at home to look after the kids.
Nicole was then branded a ‘hypocrite’ after slamming Lily, 32, on social media over reports that she was writing a book which included information about a fling with Liam back in 2009, while he was married to the All Saints star.
MailOnline has contacted a spokesperson for Nicole Appleton for further information.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that Gene and two friends will attempt to have their assault and affray charges against them thrown out following a late night bust-up in Tesco.

Gene, Beatles drummer Ringo Starr’s grandson Sonny Starkey, 19, and IMG model Noah Ponte, also 19, are accused of fighting in a Tesco Express store in Hampstead, north London.
Ponte allegedly stole a can of beer at midnight after the shop had stopped selling alcohol, an earlier hearing was told.
Starkey and Gallagher are also said to have ‘windmilled’ down the aisle at a shop worker trying to stop them from leaving.
‘This is a very factually straightforward case where much of the incident has been captured by CCTV.
‘Nothing that hasn’t been captured on cameras can be given in evidence by witnesses.

Jason Bartfeld QC, for Gallagher, James Reilly, for Starkey, and Matthew Butt, for Ponte, have 28 days after April 14 to make an application to dismiss the charges.
Judge Andrew Holmes said: ‘I’m told that each and every one of you is going to make an application to dismiss the charges that are against you.
‘That application will be heard on November 6 for half a day so you will need to come back on November 6.
‘If the application to dismiss the charges is successful, then that will be the end of it.
‘If it is not, you’ll stand trial on January 18. You’ll be on unconditional bail.
‘You must attend the next hearing in November. If you do not, you’ll be committing a separate offence which could lead to imprisonment.’
Starkey, Ponte and Gallagher, 18, face charges but were not arraigned with affray and assault by beating.
