Sparks are continuing to fly between Bradley Cooper and Gigi Hadid.

Earlier this week, the duo attended a dinner party for Queer Eye star Antoni Porowski’s birthday, and a source tells PEOPLE the pair looked to be a perfectly happy couple.

Cooper, 49, was “in good form and smiling” during dinner, the source says, adding that he and Hadid, 28 were “cute” together.

Porowski, 40, “did all the ordering for the table” — he is the Fab 5's foodie expert after all — and the group shared a mix of appetizers and pastas, the source shares. “They all seemed happy and were having fun," they explain.

According to the source, the actor is a “regular” at Via Carota, the celebrity hotspot where he and Hadid dined along with Porowski, Tan France and other friends, so the staff “is used to seeing him” there.

Back in October, the pair were spotted dining together at the Italian restaurant in the West Village for the first time, as seen in photos published byThe Daily Mail.

A source told PEOPLE at the time that the model had been crushing on Cooper for “a while,” but they were just “having fun.”

“[They have] things in common so it’s possible to see it progress," the source said. “It appears super casual now, but they both have kids, big careers, busy lives and understand what life is like in these circles. It’s cute … and there is an attraction."

They insider said that they also bonded over their mutual status as parents — Cooper shares six-year-old daughter Lea De Seine with ex Irina Shayk, while Hadid shares three-year-old daughter Khai with Zayn Malik.

"She loves that Bradley is a dad, because he gets it. She finds him more mature than guys she dated in the past," a source told PEOPLE in November. The model doesn't date "just to date," but instead, she finds the actor "interesting and attractive," the source noted.

Since the fall, the pair have been spotted together numerous other times, including for a private dinner with Cooper’s mom following the 2024 Golden Globes in Los Angeles, where he was nominated for his role as both director and star of Maestro.

A source told PEOPLE of the dinner, "Bradley and Gigi looked happy together. They weren’t overly affectionate, but it was still obvious that they are dating. There were lots of loving glances and flirting."

Later that month, they stepped out together in London as they spent time on a stroll through the city.

Prior to Cooper, Hadid was most recently linked to Leonardo DiCaprio, who she was first spotted with at a New York Fashion Week afterparty in 2022. The relationship seemed to fizzle by the end of the summer, though, as DiCaprio was spotted with model Vittoria Ceretti in late August.

Cooper's previous relationship was with Shayk, with whom he shares his daughter. They split in 2019, but remain on good terms as co-parents.
