Liam Hemsworth’s burgeoning relationship with 21-year-old Australian model Gabriella Brooks is no casual fling, People reports. No, already Hemsworth is devoting a lot of time to her, and a source told the outlet it’s “getting serious.”
“Liam and Gabriella have spent a lot of time in Australia together,” the source said. “Gabriella has met Liam’s siblings and his parents.” Brooks’ meeting with Hemsworth’s parents in mid-December was photographed by paparazzi—and it was what sparked public dating rumors about them in the first place. Hemsworth has not said anything directly about Brooks, but he confirmed their relationship was very romantic weeks later. He kissed her on an Australian beach, and photographers caught the intimate moment.
Why do Brooks and Hemsworth work so well, other than being young, beautiful, and Australian? Apparently they like doing the same things: exercising, surfing, and relaxing at the beach, per People, and Hemsworth’s friends get along with her. All of this has made Hemsworth a very happy man who has been “in a great mood,” per People‘s insider.
Hemsworth’s relationship with Brooks isn’t his only since he and Cyrus announced their separation in August. But it has been his most serious. Hemsworth was previously linked to Dynasty star Maddison Brown in October. Like Brooks, she’s also Australian and in her early 20s. Brown and Hemsworth were seen out once, and that was it. A source later told Us Weekly that “Liam and Maddison weren’t that serious and were mainly having fun together.”
Cyrus, meanwhile, has been dating Australian singer Cody Simpson. Cyrus and Hemsworth settled their divorce last month and were married for less than a year before separating. They dated for 10 years, on-off.
