Liam Hemsworth has stayed out of the limelight surrounding his love life following a very public breakdown and subsequent divorce with triple-threat star Miley Cyrus, back in 2019.
However, eighteen months since initial rumors started to bubble, Liam has made his relationship with Australian model Gabriella Brookes Instagram official and it's got us all feeling very excited!
He posted a photo of himself and Gabriella to his Instagram so things must really be getting serious!
The pair were recently at a charity dinner "raising much-needed funds and awareness for one of the most important and challenging issues, children's mental health," as Liam wrote along with the Instagram snap.
The dinner was held in Sydney, and Liam and Gabriella were joined by Liam's brother Chris Hemsworth, Chris' wife Elsa Pataky, and Matt Damon's wife, Luciana Barroso.
Relationship rumors first started between the pair back in December 2019 when they were pictured out for lunch with Hemsworth's parents in Byron Bay.
And a month on, the actor and model confirmed their relationship after being spotted kissing.
Just for a little bit of background info...
The twenty-three-year-old Australian-native works as a model and boasts over 200,000 followers on Instagram.
She is signed to Priscilla Models, one of Australia's leading modeling agencies, and is also associated with Storm Models, an agency that has represented models like Poppy Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Cole, and Eva Herzigova in the past. She has worked with companies like Vogue, Calvin Klein, Saint Laurent so far to name a few.
Hemsworth and Brookes have now been dating for eighteen months...
And their relationship came just a month after the actor was linked to Australian actor Madison Brown following his high-profile divorce from "Midnight Sky" singer Miley Cyrus.
Of course, after his extremely high-profile relationship with Cyrus, Hemsworth has kept his relationship with Brookes very private.
"His relationship with Gabriella is very different from Miley," An insider told E!, "They like the same things and have the same lifestyle." The source went on to say that while Hemsworth's 10-year relationship with Cyrus was "a rollercoaster of highs and lows", Gabriella is very "laid back and even-keeled."
"The family very much approves and likes having her around," they explained, "They are happy for Liam that he has found someone that brings out the best in him."
According to the source, the couple has a lot of shared hobbies, including exercising, surfing, and relaxing at the beach... and Hemsworth's friends approve.
By March 2020, an E! insider said Hemsworth is "excited about dating Gabriella," adding, "His family really likes her and they have a normal relationship without drama."
The source also said that their personalities are compatible. "They can both just completely be themselves and take things at face value. She's low-key and down-to-earth. So far it's been very easy and fun."
Many commenters speculated how much a likeness Gabriella has to The Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence.
"Just me or does Liam's girlfriend look like Katniss Everdeen," one person wrote, while another added, "Honestly thought that was Jennifer Lawrence for a hot sec." A third said, "Liam's lady looks like Jennifer Lawrence! No?"
Others say she also had a look of Game of Thrones actress Emila Clarke.
Nevertheless, we're excited to see Hemsworth finally settling down with someone new!
