Enjoying a day at the beach in the coastal town of Byron Bay, Liam looked more in love than ever as he planted a few kisses on the beautiful 21-year-old, who he reportedly spent New Year’s Eve with.

After soaking up the sun in the sweltering Aussie heat, the couple cooled off by taking a dip in the ocean, with Liam cheekily placing his hand on the model’s derriere. Uh, too cute!

Confirmation Liam and Gabriella— who studied ancient history and archaeology at the University of Sydney— are officially an item comes after they were spotted grabbing lunch and spending time with his parents, Craig and Leonie.

“Liam feels comfortable with Gabriella. His family approves of her and really likes her, which is very important to him,” an insider told US Weekly after photos emerged of the get-together. 

While he is yet to speak about his new flame, a source close to the couple revealed in December that they’ve been together for some time now

“They’ve known about each other for a while, but he just started seeing her for a few weeks now,” the source told the outlet last year, adding he’s formed a “strong connection” with Gabriella.

“Liam is very close with his family, so he wouldn’t introduce them to a girl unless it was serious.”

Liam’s decision to finally flaunt his romance comes after officially cutting ties with Miley, with the former couple settling their divorce in late December. While they’re no longer connected, their separation was far from amicable, with rumours swirling Liam requested a third party be there while they divided their assets. Apparently, this decision was based on Miley “turning into a green-eyed monster” after he moved on.

“Miley and Liam have agreed to put their differences aside and meet for mediation talks – before their messy divorce spirals out of control,” a source close to the former couple of 10 years told British publication, Heat World.

“They’ve both calmed down now and Liam just wants this chapter done with, so he can move on. Liam was angry and bitter in the beginning, but his family calmed him down and he started to heal— especially when he realised he was falling in love again.” 

The couple announced their shock separation in a joint statement from their representatives that said: “Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and their careers.”
