Danielle Haim and her boyfriend, Ariel Rechtshaid, are a power couple in the music industry.  

HAIM has made a name for itself in the music industry and is critically acclaimed. The band comprises three sisters — Este Haim, Danielle, and Alana Haim. 

Danielle is the lead singer out of three sisters, and other siblings help with instruments and vocals. The band has been making music for almost a decade. 

Usually, they have collaborated with different producers, and one of them is Rechtshaid.

The Grammy-winning producer has worked with various artists like Beyoncé, Madonna, Adele, Charli XCX, Justin Bieber, Solange Knowles, and U2.

But perhaps, the one he holds near and dear to his heart is HAIM. This is because he is dating the lead singer of the band.

Danielle Haim and Ariel Rechtshaid

Danielle and Rechtshaid first met each other in 2012. The singer shared how she first met her boyfriend in an interview with NME on January 28, 2021.

Before meeting each other, Danielle had heard songs produced by Rechtshaid. She first heard Cass McCombs' 'County Line' and searched for the producer.

She learned Rechtshaid's name and was mesmerized by his talents. Then, a couple of weeks later, she heard Usher's 'Climax.'

Once again, she saw Rechtshaid was the one who produced the music. She then told her manager that she wanted to meet the producer, and soon after, the pair met each other.

The two did a few songs and had chemistry, but nothing had happened between them until then.

They had a connection when HAIM was in London doing press tours, and Rechtshaid was at the city mixing records.

The producer said, "it was a slow build after that but that was I think when Danielle and I suddenly had this connection." And the rest is history. 

Neither of them has exactly said when they started dating, but what is known is that they are together to date.

Danielle is not much active on social media, but Rechtshaid often posts pictures of his girlfriend on Instagram. 

Ariel Rechtshaid and His Cancer

The Grammy-winning producer was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2015 while working on HAIM's second album, Something to Tell You.

As a result, the album was put on hold for Rechtshaid's treatment.

However, neither Rechtshaid nor HAIM revealed about the former's cancer. They only talked about it after the album was released as a reason for the delay.

The sisters were beside their producer throughout his treatment, and they helped him fight the battle. But unfortunately, during that time, it took a mental toll on Danielle.

In an interview with The Independent in August 2020, the sisters revealed Danielle had difficulty dealing with her boyfriend and his illness. As a result, she was depressed. 

However, with the help of her sisters and therapist, Danielle was able to win her battle against depression. She also channeled her feeling about her boyfriend's diagnosis on HAIM's single 'Summer Girl.'

Danielle penned it while on vacation with her boyfriend after his diagnosis. So naturally, she wanted to be there for him, and she poured all her feelings into the song. 

She could not talk about Rechtshaid's cancer in public since it was not her story to say. But after the release of their single, she was pleased that people knew "where the song was coming from."

Thankfully, Rechtshaid overcame cancer, and his relationship with his girlfriend is stronger than ever.
