The couple have apparently been dating for some time, and photos emerged of them together at a Kanye West concert last year.
According to sources in the know, the 27-year-old German model met Pitt through mutual friends. But don’t feel too bad that nobody knew about the budding romance, as Pitt is described as “very private” over the relationship.
“Brad and Nicole were introduced through friends, and when they first started seeing each other, they told no one about it. Even some of their inner circle of friends are only finding out now. Brad has been very private about dating and now more than ever he doesn't want to rock the boat with Angelina. He has been working so hard on making his co-parenting run smoothly,” a source revealed.
Friends of the model say that one thing Pitt likes about her, is that she’s not ‘star-struck’ over the 56-year-old’s connections and high-profile friends.
“Her friends describe her as super easy going. She is very down to earth and far from star-struck, which has been really nice for Brad. They took off to France for some downtime.”
OK! previously reported that Pitt and his new girlfriend “share a passion for the arts and have a ton in common.”
A source exclusively told In Touch “Nicole is mature beyond her years, educated and well-travelled” and that Pitt has “totally fallen for her.”
