Leonardo DiCaprio has been pictured getting close to Gigi Hadid at a party in New York City on Monday.

The 47-year-old actor was pictured with the 27-year-old model for the first time since news or their reported romance broke, in exclusive photos obtained by DailyMail.com.

The pairing appears to be the first time the Oscar winner has ever dated a woman older than 25, and Gigi would also be the first woman he has dated who is a mother.

Photos snapped at the exclusive party, which was thrown at Casa Cipriani by Leo’s friends Richie Akiva and Darren Dzienciol in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood, show the actor dressed in a black short-sleeve shirt and a black baseball cap while sporting his usual goatee.

DiCaprio and Gigi — who wore a white crop top revealing her toned midriff, along with baggy jeans — could be seen leaning in close together as they tried to chat in the midst of the loud party.

Following the leaking of the new pictures, a source close to to the couple said while they are dating, they are ‘taking it slow,’ according to Page Six.

The source went on to say that the couple have been out together just the two of them as well as hanging out in groups with the pair not calling themselves ‘exclusive’ yet.

The person added: ‘[DiCaprio] is not someone who is in-and-out of relationships. He doesn’t jump around hooking up. They are taking it slow.’

Although DiCaprio appears to have set his sights on Gigi, an insider told E! News on Tuesday that he is ‘enjoying being single,’ and the two are ‘not exclusive.’

A source close to the model also claimed to the publication that ‘neither of them want a relationship’ at the moment.

‘Gigi and Leo have hung out multiple times and are into each other. Gigi thinks he’s a really cool guy,’ they said. ‘Majority of their hangouts have stemmed from being in the same social circles at various parties.’

The A-listers looked a little handsy, as the Once Upon A Time in Hollywood star appeared to put his hands on the catwalk star’s shoulders.

They even appeared to reach out together at one point, possibly to hold hands.

Gigi and DiCaprio weren’t afraid to get close to each other either, with Leonardo leaning in to speak next to Gigi’s ear, and she reciprocates at other times to be heard over the din.

The actor and climate activist’s reported romance with Gigi comes following reports in recent days that he has been pursuing her.

However, earlier a source told Us Weekly last week that DiCaprio had ‘his sights set on Gigi,’ but ‘she doesn’t want to be romantic with [him] right now.’

An eyewitness first revealed to Us Weekly that DiCaprio and Gigi had been seen together at the party in Soho, which served as an afterparty during New York Fashion Week.

The party was reportedly filled with celebrities, including Venus Williams, Irina Shayk (who walked with Gigi at the Vogue World: New York show on Monday), Carmelo Anthony and Ben Simmons.

Following the revelation that DiCaprio may have broken his own dating rule, iconic singer Dionne Warwick took to her equally iconic Twitter page to tell the Titanic star: ‘I just heard about Leonardo DiCaprio’s 25 year rule. His loss. You don’t know what you’re missing.’

His dating patterns once again became a source of mockery for the actor after he and the model-turned-actress Camila Morrone split this summer after more than four years together.

The Daisy Jones And The Six actress had turned 25 in June, and the two reportedly split sometime prior to the news breaking, which led to numerous jokes on social media about Leo’s tendency to split from his girlfriends as they approach that dreaded number.

The former couple had taken the big step of moving in together, but Camila was seen moving into a new apartment in Malibu afterward.

Not only is Gigi 27, and likely the oldest woman he has dated, but she is also a mother, which is also apparently something new for him.

The sister of Bella Hadid shares a two-year-old daughter named Khai with her former partner Zayn Malik, 29.

She gave birth to the child in September 2020, and she split from the former One Direction singer in October in the wake of an altercation he had with her mother Yolanda Hadid.

He alleged shoved her against a dresser and shouted profanities at her at a Pennsylvania home where he and Gigi had been raising their daughter, which led him to be charged with four criminal counts of harassment, all of which he pleaded guilty to.

The singer was subsequently sentence to 360 days of community service — with 90 days for each charge — and he was also required to take anger management classes and attend an anti-domestic violence program.

The two separated shortly after his alleged assault of Yolanda, but they have continued to coparent their daughter, and Zayn even visits Gigi and Khai at the Pennsylvania home sometimes.

The actor has dated a bevy of other models, including Gisele Bündchen, Bar Refaeli and Nina Agdal, as well as actresses including Camila and Blake Lively

Although DiCaprio and Gigi’s relationship seems to have reached a new level, this isn’t the first time they have been spotted socializing in public, as Us Weekly reported that they partied together at an Art Basel Miami afterparty with her sister Bella and Kendall Jenner all the way back in December 2019.

The group reportedly sat together for hours at Ultraclub E11VEN while sipping on vodka and Don Julio 1942. DiCaprio and Hadid left separately.

That same month, Camilia, his then girlfriend, told the Los Angeles Times about the couple’s age difference saying: ‘There’s so many relationships in Hollywood – and in the history of the world – where people have large age gaps. I just think anyone should be able to date who they want to date.’

All the way back in 2016, DiCaprio fell victim to Hadid’s hilarious sister Erin Foster who posted a photo to Instagram of a group of Victoria Secret models with their arms raised. The caption on the post read: ‘Raise your hand if you’ve told Leo you’re on the pill.’

A few months prior to that, DiCaprio told Parade Magazine about his views on marriage saying: ‘That time will come when that time comes. The truth is, you can’t predict marriage. You can’t plan it. It’s just going to happen when it happens.’

In July of this year, the Django Unchained star was pictured with the Ukrainian model Maria Beregova, 22, on a trip to Saint-Tropez.

DailyMail.com revealed that Beregova had reverted to using her maiden name on the trip with DiCaprio after divorcing her husband Abdelhafid, 30 — whose grandfather had served Libyan dictator Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.

In the wake of the rumors about DiCaprio and Gigi, DailyMail.com has reached out to Beregova for comment.

Just before the photos of DiCaprio and Gigi emerged, the model gave an interview with Willie Geist on NBC’s Sunday Sitdown.

Gigi didn’t expose any details about her dating life but did speak at length about her daughter, Khai.

She said: ‘I think she’s a genius. But I think that’s what everyone says about their kid. It’s so much fun. The more that she talks, and understands, and remembers, it just gets more and more fun. And she’s a blessing.’

The Victoria’s Secret model also spoke about not having an epidural during her 14 hour labor. She said: ‘I knew it was going to be the craziest pain in my life, but you have to surrender to it and be like, “This is what it is.” I loved that…I know my mom and Zayn and Bella were proud of me, but at certain points I saw each of them in terror.’
