Venice appears to be a favourite destination for the couple after Ned – a musician and composer – proposed to Hayley during a previous trip to the city in April 2023. 

Confirming their engagement at the time, he told Instagram followers: ‘Lucky me. Arrived in Venice at 10am, around midday the love of my life and I got engaged in the kitchen of this strange apartment surrounded by ducks, with a bloke outside the window murdering “My Way” on the accordion.

‘A perfect start to the rest of our lives together. I’d never had any interest in getting married… until I met this extraordinary woman. Happy as a clam.’

Hayley and Ned have kept their relationship away from the public eye and are rarely pictured together.

The London-based artist’s Instagram bio reads that he ‘doesn’t eat animals’ and that he has been ‘alcohol & drug free for over a decade’.

Speaking to The Sun shortly after the relationship was announced, an insider said: ‘Hayley’s happiness is written on her face right now.

‘They get on like a house on fire and make a very handsome couple.’

Ned’s website says he has produced commercial music for big brands such as Bud Light, Headspace and Samsung.

‘What was working behind closed doors didn’t work out so well when it was made public, and the fanfare around them as a couple exploded again,’ the source stated.

The source also insisted that the couple’s romance was ‘genuine’, stating ‘In spite of some rumours to the contrary, it was never just for the cameras.’

Hayley and Tom began dating in 2020 after meeting on set of Mission: Impossible 7, and were first reported to be an item in December.

Tom, who plays Ethan Hunt in the famous franchise, spent much of the last year shooting the movie across the UK, as well as in Rome, Venice, and Norway.

Though the two had never expressly confirmed their romance, they were said to have become ‘fairly inseparable’ after they ‘hit it off from day one’ on the film.

However, by September, the relationship was said to have ‘run its course’ for the pair.

An insider told The Sun: ‘It has been a very intense period of filming together. They really got on well – but as the latest film winds down they’ve decided to go back to being friends.

‘Their filming schedules are very full-on, and Tom has a number of other commitments coming up and is always shooting around by private helicopter and jet so it just ran its course.

‘But they’re still happy to work together. It’s a shame, but just one of those things. They still get on well.’
