One celebrity relationship that fans seem to be seriously rooting for is that between former One Direction star, Louise Tomlinson, and his model girlfriend Eleanor Calder.

Eleanor Calder Bio (Age)
Eleanor Calder might have attracted more media attention due to her relationship with the One Direction star, but it doesn’t mean she hasn’t got some things going on for herself as well. The beauty was born in London, England to Deborah and Philip Calder on the 16th of July 1992. Calder is a beauty with brains, she graduated from the University of Manchester with a degree in politics and sociology. However, instead of getting a boring job after graduation, the avid fashionista decided to team up with a friend named Max Hurd to start a fashion blog.
The blog, which as of this writing is defunct, was named The Trend Pear. In one of her interviews about the blog, Calder revealed that they necessarily didn’t have an end goal for starting the blog but were just doing it for fun and would continue as long as people showed interest. However, it seemed as if disinterest from people wasn’t the reason why the blog stopped – both parties just got more interested in their personal endeavors.
On the 20th of September 2017, Eleanor Calder took to her Twitter page to announce that she had just been signed to Elite London Models, expressing much anticipation in beginning the next phase of her career. Calder is uber popular on Instagram with over 3.1 million followers. In addition to cute snaps of herself, she regularly posts photos with her beau Louis Tomlinson.
