Not only are Leonardo DiCaprio and Bar Rafaeli planning to marry, but they may also be expecting a baby! The rumor is circulating that the couple, who have been dating for just 15 months, are expecting their first child.
Friends claim that Bar – who is the first Israeli model to appear in Sports Illustrated magazine – is due in late autumn. They add that she and Leo are “delighted”.
An excited Leo has said he can’t wait to be a dad, especially since his good friend, Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire, became a father last November.
The Mirror shares: “He dotes on Tobey’s little girl Ruby and has been asking him all about what it’s like being a dad.”
There was speculation last month that 21-year-old Bar might be pregnant when she wore a loose-fitting top to a bash at Jet Nightclub at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. She also stuck to mineral water all night. Leonardo, 32, is thought to have proposed very recently, and when he and Bar holidayed in Israel she is said to have officially introduced him to her family – and held a secret engagement party there.
Reports suggest they will have a private wedding ceremony in Israel, followed by a bigger bash in the US toward the end of the year.
The Mirror reports that Leo’s people have already been in contact with several exclusive venues in Tel Aviv about catering for various aspects of the wedding. The five-star Dan Accadia Herzliya Hotel has been contacted about staging the wedding party, while sources at the lavish King David Hotel in the Old City say Leo’s people have asked about holding the ceremony there.
Leo started dating Bar after splitting from Gisele Bundchen.
Though they are very private about their relationship, friends reveal that they are very much in love and busy planning a future together.
