There may be a new lady in Brad Pitt's life. This week, dating rumors spread after German model Nicole Poturalski was spotted boarding the same private jet as Pitt, bound for the South of France, according to Entertainment Tonight. The outlet reports that Poturalski arrived at Paris's Charles de Gaulle Airport from Berlin, while Pitt came from LAX. "They were seen driving in a chauffeured vehicle that took them to the airport for their next flight," an eyewitness told ET. "They took the one hour flight and were spotted arriving in the South of France." The insider added, "They were very low-key and entered the plane quickly."
Us Weekly has confirmed that the 27-year-old model and 56-year-old Oscar winner are, in fact, dating. There isn't a ton to know about the couple, who masked up for their first public outing. But here's a few facts about Poturalski, including what she's said about her son and references she may have made to Pitt on Instagram.

She has an international background.
She is from Bergkamen and is of Polish heritage, according to the Daily Mail. The outlet also reports that she speaks five languages. Potrulaski's Instagram suggests she divides her time between Los Angeles and Berlin. Poturalski has also shared photos from trips to Ibiza and Italy's Amalfi Coast. When asked what her one superpower would be on her A Management profile, the model responded: "Traveling in time so I can visit all those amazing and historic events myself including the future."

She's a mother.
Pitt is a father of six kids with ex-wife Angelina Jolie—Maddox, 19; Pax, 16; Zahara, 15; Shiloh, 14; and 12-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. While Poturalski is also a parent, her family is smaller. According to the Mail, she's mother to a son, Emil.
Like Pitt, Poturalski doesn't speak publicly about her son often. But in February, she posted a photo of herself and her son sporting matching denim for a walk in Los Angeles. "Angel Engery. Best Friend. Best Company. Gang!" she wrote alongside it.

In May, Poturalski wrote a sweet tribute to motherhood, along with a sun-lit photo of herself. "Little love letter to all moms, that try so hard, give so much love, time and heart. Dont sleep, worry too much and love even more. You are great," she wrote.

She's passionate about political issues.
Like Pitt, Potrualski hasn't shied away from spotlighting issues she cares about on social media. In May, she wore a top that read, 'Protect Kids, Not Guns,' captioning her photo with the same phrase and tagging @chnge. One of her Instagram Moments categories is titled "Save the kids," and shares ways to end child sex trafficking. In the roundup, she even posts a speech Blake Lively gave at a 2017 Variety event about child pornography.

She may have subtly posted about her relationship with Pitt before.
For those looking for hints of Pitt and Poturalski's relationship on Instagram, there may be a few hidden clues suggesting they've been secretly dating for months. Poturalski has posted several shots referencing her "love" and "better half"on her Instagram over the last couple months, although she hasn't directly specified whether she's writing about Pitt or a previous partner.
Back on March 28, the model captioned a post of herself in a sweatsuit, holding a drink, "Saturdays these days for me is self reflection, reading books spending time with my better half."

Her quarantine seems to be filled with books, wine, and fashionable sweats.
Like the rest of us, the model has been trying to find good ways to spend her time at home. Many of the days have been documented on Instagram, to her 102,000 followers. Several of her posts feature Poturalski in chic sweat suits, reading books, or artfully posing with a glass of vino. In one post, she even playfully sips a Capri Sun:

This isn't the first woman whom Pitt has been rumored to be dating since his split from Jolie.
Following Pitt's separation from wife Angelina Jolie in 2016, Pitt has been falsely linked to several women. The women or sources with knowledge of the situation have denied them having any romantic involvement with him.
Most recently, there was Search Party's Alia Shawkat, who confirmed the pair is strictly friends. Before that, there was jewelry designer and holistic healer Sat Hari Khalsa; a source told E! that despite reports otherwise, the two did not date.
At one point, MIT professor Neri Oxman was a rumored love interest, then Page Six denied they ever dated, with a source saying "their friendship has not turned into romance." Oscar winner Charlize Theron was rumored to be "casually seeing" Pitt, until a source made it clear to People that reports of them dating are absolutely false: They have "never" been involved.
And of course, Pitt's infamous run-in with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston at this year's SAG Awards sparked dating hopes among fans. A People source promptly shot them down, saying, Aniston "is not dating Brad. They are friends and happy for each other. They want nothing but happiness for each other. She is happy to have Brad back in her life as a friend, but that’s it."
Pitt has publicly made it clear he's single, even jokingly referencing his status in his Golden Globes acceptance speech. “I wanna say hi to my folks, cause hey!” he said in his speech. “I wanted to bring my mom, but I couldn’t because anyone I stand next to, they say I’m dating. And that would be just awkward.” He joked about being on Tinder during another speech.
