Brad Pitt officially has a new girlfriend: 27-year-old German model Nicole Poturalski. Not a lot has been shared about the two's relationship, but Entertainment Tonight managed to get a little intel on how they met and why they chose to keep their relationship secret initially. (The two were first photographed on a date in November 2019.)

"Brad and Nicole were introduced through friends, and when they first started seeing each other, they told no one about it," ET's source said. "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 [Jolie, his ex-wife with whom he shares six children]. He has been working so hard on making his co-parenting run smoothly."

Pitt and Poturalski were photographed arriving in France together this week, where they are on vacation at Pitt's chateau there. An industry insider told People that they consider the two to be a good match. "I like her a lot," the source said. "She has spunk. She’s smart. If she's dating Brad, good for her. Good for him."

Poturalski has hinted on her Instagram that she's actually been dating Pitt for months, posting Instagrams with captions referencing her "love" and "better half" as far back as February 2020. "Missing my strolls with my Love 🌙💥" she captioned a February 26 post of herself walking down the streets of Los Angeles—one that appears to have been taken down as news of her relationship with Pitt became public.
