Austin Butler and Kaia Gerber's age gap
Many fans were curious about Austin Butler and Kaia Gerber's age gap when news first broke about their relationship. The two share a 10-year age gap, with Kaia and Austin aged 20 and 30 respectively when they first began dating.
The now 22-year-old model has previously opened up about her choice to date older men after being linked to a then-26-year-old Pete Davidson when she was 19.
“I found myself in situations where I was, like, I actually don’t have the life experience that I need to handle this. You know, I was doing fashion month, but I was so young I had kissed, like, only one person. I had never had a high school sweetheart or anything,” she told Vogue in an interview about her romantic past.
She also explained that she ended up dating “older people,” because that's who she was surrounded by in the world of fashion.
“I got put in situations where one day I’d wake up and be like, How did I get here? I have no idea what I’m doing, and I need help,” she added. “And being able to ask for that help was amazing. That’s what real growing up means, not being afraid to ask.”

Did Kaia Gerber and Austin Butler break up?
No, it appears Kaia Gerber and Austin Butler are still going strong! Despite keeping much of their life out of the public eye, fans last saw the couple out and about at New York's Polo Bar on December 14, 2023.
After not being spotted together for a few months, some fans began to believe that Austin and Kaia's lack of joint public appearances hinted that the couple had parted ways.
Speaking to WSJ Magazine in February 2024, Kaia addressed the couple's low profile, telling the publication, "Honestly, I feel like so few things in my life are private, and [my relationship] is one of the things that I try to keep as sacred as possible."
The Bottoms star also elaborated on her decision to keep her private life away from social media, adding, "I'm very sensitive, so I don't keep social media on my phone... I personally haven't found a time in the last three years where I've gone on something like Instagram and left feeling better than I did before."
