Just who is Danielle Campbell? 5 facts about Louis’ latest squeeze

Following the break up with his long-term girlfriend Eleanor Calder and the revelation that he is to become a dad, we think Louis deserves some luck in the romance department. 

Rumours have been circulating over the last month that Louis is dating actress Danielle Campbell and the pair were spotted this week all over each other on a cute date in Chicago. 

They were originally spotted together in November, when one of Danielle's co-stars posted a pic of the pair together. 

So who is Danielle Campbell? We've got all the details: 

1) She is an up and coming actress 

You may recognise Danielle if you are a fan of the Originals, the spin off show to the Vampire Diaries, in which the pretty brunette plays a witch.

You have also seen her in Disney Channel Original films, Prom and Star Struck. 

She has had leading roles in two 2015 drama films, 16 South and Race to Redemption. 

2) She made her acting debut in Prison Break 

Danielle starred in the hit drama series, Prison Break, in 2006 at the tender age of eleven and appeared in five episodes. 

3) She grew up in Illinois 

Danielle grew up in a small town called Hinsdale with her parents and little brother. 

She was spotted age ten in a hair salon and the rest, as they say, is history. 

4) She's an outdoorsy type 

The budding actress, who is turning 21 in January, is naturally active and spends her free time hiking and surfing. 

"I love to be outside and staying active," Danielle told The New Potato. "I love to hike, run and surf. I have also started kickboxing and can't get enough."

5) She's introduced Louis to the family 

Not only has Louis met the family, but according to Hello! magazine, Louis and Danielle's little brother, Johnny, reportedly went out and got matching tattoos. 

We suspect these two might be in it for the long haul.
