The honeymoon stage. Liam Hemsworth’s rumored new girlfriend, Gabriella Brooks, is smitten with the actor — and we don’t blame her! “Not only is Gabriella drop-dead gorgeous and a successful model, she’s fun, intelligent and sweet-natured,” a source told In Touch exclusively. “You can tell she isn’t after Liam for his fame and fortune and adores him for all the right reasons.”

The 29-year-old handsome hunk was first spotted with the 21-year-old beauty in Byron Bay, Australia, where they were joined by his parents, Leonie and Craig, at a restaurant. During their time together, Liam first hugged his mama, and then she embraced Gabriella, according to photos obtained by The Daily Mail. Gabriella looked like she was engaging with his famous family and couldn’t help but smile during their outing.

It seems like Liam’s crew is excited for his budding relationship. “Craig and Leonie adore Gabriella and think she’s a much better fit for their son than Miley [Cyrus], who they never warmed to,” the insider explained. “They didn’t approve of Miley’s attention-seeking ways or the way she treated their son.”

Additionally, Chris Hemsworth and his wife, Elsa Pataky, are looking forward to what’s to come with the pair. “Elsa’s thrilled that Liam’s moved on from Miley  — she always thought he could do better than his ex, and the way she sees it, he has with Gabriella!” the source added. “She and Chris have already met Gabriella and thinks she’s wonderful and a perfect fit for Liam.”

In August, Liam and Miley, 27, announced they were going their separate ways after eight months of marriage. Two months later, the Australia native was seen canoodling with model Maddison Brown in New York City. “Liam and Maddison met recently in L.A. and just hit it off,” a second source told In Touch exclusively at the time. “They have a lot in common — being a fellow Aussie, [being] actors, [being] family-oriented and loving the beach are just a few. It’s a totally natural fit, and they get on really well.

Meanwhile, the “Mother’s Daughter” singer has been showing off her new beau, Cody Simpson, all over social media in the past few months. The two started dating in October after they decided to take their friendship to the next level. “I’m very happy. Yeah, I’m very, very happy,” the 22-year-old singer told In Touch and other reporters in October. “She’s creative. She’s very passionate about what she does and I’m very similar in that sense, that’s why we get along so well. We just have a ball and that’s the most important part of a relationship.”
