Elordi has reportedly been staying with Kaia at the home of her parents in Malibu. Speaking to People, a source revealed how the Australian actor has “embraced Kaia’s Malibu life and seems to love it as much as she does.”
“They rarely leave Malibu and instead enjoy the beach, go hiking and meet up with friends for dinner,” the insider explained. “Jacob is very sweet to Kaia. They are always very loving and cute together. It’s obvious that Cindy and Rande approve of Jacob too. They spend a lot of time together.”
Kaia Gerber & Jacob Elordi Relationship timeline
Kaia Gerber, 19, and Jacob Elordi, 23, first sparked dating rumours in September 2020 after they were spotted having dinner at Nobu in Malibu. They were also seen holding hands in New York City.
While the couple kept their romance private for a few months, Kaia Gerber showed her boyfriend some love on social media for Valentine’s Day.
She shared a rare photo with Elordi on her Instagram Story. The picture showed the couple relaxing on the beach as they lounged side-by-side on a daybed reading books. Gerber didn’t caption the photo, however, she added a red heart emoji to the Instagram Story slide.
The model also posted a solo shot of Elordi on her Instagram Story where she called him her “valentine.”
Kaia eventually confirmed her relationship with Elordi on Nov. 1 after the couple got into the Halloween spirit by transforming into rock ‘n’ roll legend Elvis Presley and his wife Priscilla.
“Kaia had sent me the idea, as there was a specific photo of Priscilla and Elvis that they wanted to recreate,” Gerber’s makeup artist Sam Visser told Vogue of the look. “I love Kaia. She’s always open to trying new things.
Speaking about the similarities between the couple, a source shared, “It’s actually crazy how much they have in common. It was like the universe brought them together! They’re both models, modeled for Calvin Klein — very into fashion, of course. They love going shopping together and even working out together. They’re truly some of the kindest people you will meet.”
