Leonardo DiCaprio is receiving high praise from model and rumored girlfriend, Victoria Lamas. The Titanic actor has been spotted on a string of dates with Victoria this winter as his love life gains more attention than ever. Leo, 48, was spotted in West Hollywood with 23-year-old Victoria last week. Now, her father, Lorenzo Lamas, is opening up on the potential relationship and what he thinks of notorious ladies' man, Leonardo. Speaking to The New York Post, Lorenzo said that his daughter is "very smitten" with Leo. He did, however, admit that he doesn't know much in the way of details and even suggested that they aren't an item.
Victoria Lamas and Leonardo DiCaprio: Famous Dad Addresses Rumors
'Very Smitten' With Him
Lorenzo said, "I know she likes him very much. I think they met last month. I'm not sure of the circumstances, but that's what she told me."
Are They Together?
Six days ago, The Daily Mail reported a sighting as Leo and squeeze Victoria were spotted enjoying their third date in a week. The media outlet noted the age gap between the reported couple - Leo, meanwhile, has made endless headlines for not dating women under the age of 25.
Leo and Victoria hit up the Off Sunset nightclub in WeHo.
Sources Say She's 'Fond' Of Him
Meanwhile, anonymous insiders have been dishing on Victoria and Oscar winner Leo.
"She's fond of him, obviously. But they're not dating, and she does not want that out there because that would be really bad," one said.
Leo is, himself, fresh from ending things with his long-term girlfriend and model Camila Morrone. Famous past girlfriends include models Gisele Bundchen and Nina Agdal, plus Bridget Hall and actress Blake Lively.
Leo is often seen ducking the cameras and seemingly escaping the paparazzi - he seemingly did just this during his recent Christmas party bash, attended by stars including Delilah Bella Hamlin and Kiernan Shipka.
Camila Morrone Stays Quiet
Camila, meanwhile, has stayed quiet amid her split - she has not spoken of her romance with Leo.
Lorenzo's Advice To Victoria
Also noting the advice he'd given his daughter as he spoke out this week, Falcon's Crest actor Lorenzo continued:
"I told her to treat the relationship like a holiday — just enjoy it as much as you can for as long as it lasts."
If It Lasts, It Lasts
"And if it lasts for more than a typical holiday, great. But if not, then just guard your heart, you know? Because she's very young," he added.
Watch This Space!
Where it'll go is yet to be seen. Some fans still think Leo is set for the 27-year-old model Gigi Hadid!
