“By the time girls reach 25, they’re looking for more, they’re looking to get married and settle down. This is not what Leo wants. He does not want a family and does not want to be around women who may press him for that,” a source revealed to the New York Post.
The leading man of Titanic and other biopics, Leonardo DiCaprio, has recently become the subject of memes, given his history of never dating a woman under 25. Well, his latest breakup with model-cum-actress Camila Morrone (just two months after her 25th birthday) became another subject for snarky tweets and humorous memes.
People went as far as to create an infamous chart recording his rumoured and confirmed flings with Hollywood’s young and beautiful women over the years. But just as fans were guessing who might be next on Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend list, the celebrity left us all gape-mouthed.
Leo now hopes to take his ‘nascent romance’ with Gigi Hadid to the next level.
Falling in Love Like Falling Asleep: Slowly, Then All at Once?
Allegedly, the couple started seeing each other in September 2022 after they were spotted at a New York Fashion Week afterparty. Naturally, rumours and speculations arose because a trip down memory lane reminds us that Gigi had split with Zayn Malik in October 2021 and is currently co-parenting her two-year-old, Khai Hadid Malik. On the other hand, DiCaprio was semi-fresh from his breakup with Camila, with whom he shared a four-year relationship.
However, what was unbelievable to many was Leo’s choice – 27-year-old American model and diva Gigi.

People magazine revealed through a source that Leo “really likes that she (Gigi) has her life together” and even appreciates the fact that “she has a child and she’s mature.” People also added that “Gigi is smitten” with DiCaprio, calling him “quite romantic and a gentleman” as he is understanding of her busy lifestyle as a mother.

However, the mature mom keeps her walls up until there’s a sense of certainty. A source told US Weekly that Gigi is “very fond of Leo and is interested in pursuing a relationship with him but at the same time is very busy with her modelling gigs and being there for her daughter.” This is natural given her six-year on-and-off relationship with Zayn, which split one year ago.
Even Gigi’s mother, Yolanda Hadid, and sister, Bella Hadid, are “extremely supportive of the relationship and think Leo is incredibly talented.” The Gigi Hadid Leonardo love story is kept low-key and private as the two get to know each other better.
From ‘Girl of His Dreams’ to ‘Dream Girl?’
Ever since an insider said to People that “Letely pursuing Gigi,” fans have speculated whether the bombshell’s motherly warmth has finally triggered Leo’s hidden paternal side. After all, Hadid is the oldest woman DiCaprio has shown interest in the past two decades.
“I can’t believe we successfully bullied Leonardo DiCaprio into dating older women, and now he’s going for Gigi Hadid,” one fan tweeted. Another person wrote, “Truly and honestly shocked at the break in the cycle.”
Of course, this also meant scepticism and criticism were just around the corner. “The sole purpose behind Leonardo dating Gigi Hadid is to cancel the theory that he only dates girls younger than 25.” However, from the looks of it – the stunner model is striking the perfect balance between being smitten and keeping things low-key.
And if Leo has finally journeyed far enough from the ‘girl of his dreams’ to his ‘dream girl,’ the news can’t stay private for long!
