Ever since their breakup, this is not the first time that Gigi has given a nod to Zayn when it comes to their daughter’s special moments.

The news comes after Gigi had been pictured getting close to Leonardo DiCaprio at a party in New York City last week.

The 47-year-old actor was pictured with the model for the first time since news of 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.

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 Leonardo appears to have set his sights on Gigi, an insider told E! News last week 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 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.’
