Liam Gallagher’s daughter Molly Moorish has confirmed she is dating Liverpool footballer Nathaniel Phillips with a sweet Instagram snap.
Molly showed her support for Nathaniel on Saturday, cosying up to the star footballer, who is currently on loan from Liverpool, on the pitch after he helped Bournemouth get promoted to the Premier League.
The model, 24, first hinted at signs of a romance with the centre-back player, 25, on Instagram last June, uploading a picture of the footballer during a walk and captioned it with a smiley face emoji with love hearts.

Almost a year on, and the couple have gone Instagram official, with a smitten Moly captioning her new snap taken on Saturday: ‘Big fan of your work @nathaniel_phillips.’
Nathaniel commented: ‘Love you ❤️.’ while Molly’s mum Lisa Moorish wrote: ‘He’s alright our Nat ♥️♥️♥️.’
While Lisa has showed her support, Molly’s relationship may provide some awkward moments between Nathanial and her dad Liam, who is a devoted Manchester City fan.
The singer once famously branded 2020 Premiership winners Liverpool as the ‘chumpions’ and after watching his team beat Liverpool 4-1 last year branded star player Thiago Alcântara a ‘dirty little c***.’

A source told The Sun last June that Molly and the footballer ‘have been growing close for a while, their budding relationship is common knowledge among their friends and their families.
‘Although they have kept their romance quiet they appear to be getting on really well.
‘Everyone around them thinks they make a nice couple. Molly is clearly smitten. It’s early days yet but they seem very much in the honeymoon period.’

Molly’s representatives declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline at the time.
Back in November 2021 it was reported the model split from Louis Hartley after six months of dating.
She deleted all trace of her ex from social media after she and model Louis decided to end their romance after lockdown reportedly ‘put pressure’ on their romance.
Molly first confirmed her romance with Louis in May 2020 when she shared a cosy snap with him, after they met through mutual friends.

A source told The Sun: ‘Molly and Louis were totally smitten and they were closer than close when they first started dating earlier this year.
‘But lockdown has put pressure on them – it’s not a great time when you’re dating someone new – and they decided to end it.
‘It’s been a bit of a messy split and Molly has deleted every trace of Louis from her social media accounts. It’s like their relationship didn’t exist.’
MailOnline contacted representatives for Molly at the time.
Her dad Liam previously revealed he’d given the relationship his seal of approval, after reconnecting with his daughter following 20 years of being estranged.
In February 2020, Molly also revealed she still turns to her dad for ‘boy advice,’ telling GRAZIA: ‘I go to him for boy advice. He’ll be like, ”Stay away from that one…”’
