After months of dodging speculation about their romance, pop stars Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez sealed the deal by publicly holding hands on Sunday, and RadarOnline.com has the pictures!
The perfect pair strolled down the beach-side streets of Santa Monica on the sunny California afternoon looking like any other regular teens on a date.
The Biebs, 16, looked like the cat that got the cream as he trotted along beside Disney diva Gomez, 18, with a cheeky grin on his face.
RadarOnline.com recently reported how Bieber told Ryan Seacrest that he and Selena are BFFs. "She's like one of my best friends," Justin said on the KIIS-FM radio show.
The cute couple kicked off 2011 on a Caribbean cruise in St. Lucia where they were spotted kissing and cuddling but remained coy about their relationship. "We just like to hang out," Gomez said.
