As Scott Disick gets older, the 34-year-old’s girlfriends just keep getting younger. After splitting from 38-year-old baby mama Kourtney Kardashian, the father of three has steered away from women in their 30s. In fact, he’s all about the barely-legal gals these days.
It started with his fling with then-26-year-old model Chloe Bartoli, and continued with his brief relationship with Bella Thorne, 19. Now, the woman — or, rather, girl — occupying his time is 19-year-old model Sofia Richie.
Since their relationship seems like the real deal (for now), let’s get to know Sofia a bit better. Read on for everything you need to know about the teen.
How old is she?
Born on Aug. 24, 1998, Sofia turned 19 just as her summer romance with Scott was heating up. To give you a little perspective, the reality star was 15 and in high school when his new girlfriend was born.
Who are her parents?
Sofia’s parents are Motown legend Lionel Richie and ex-wife Diana Alexander Richie, who split in 2004. Her older sister is 36-year-old designer and actress Nicole Richie (who was adopted), and 23-year-old brother Miles Richie. Her godfather was the late Michael Jackson.
What does her dad think of their relationship?
Lionel recently made his feelings on the May-December romance known — and they weren’t positive. He quipped, “Have I been in shock?! I’m the dad, come on. I’m scared to death, are you kidding me?”
What is her ethnicity?
Sofia is half-black (via her dad) and half-Jewish (via her mom) — though she realizes she doesn’t present that way. “I’m very light, so some people don’t really know that I’m black,” she said. “I’ve been in situations where people will say something kind of racist and I’ll step in and they’ll be like, ‘Oh, well, you’re light.’”
What does she do for a living?
The striking beauty began her modeling career in 2013, and has since been featured in campaigns for Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, Chanel, and more. She also dabbled in music in her early teens, taking voice lessons from Beyoncé‘s coach, and hitting the studio with rocker brother-in-law Joel Madden. Ultimately, she chose not to pursue singing further, due to the pressures of living up to her father.
How much is she worth?
Sofia has a reported net worth of a whopping $3 million. Part of this is likely due to her father’s impressive legacy, though she’s also earned a good living from her major fashion campaigns.
Who else has she dated?
In summer 2016, Sofia was rumored to be dating Justin Bieber, only to be linked to Brooklyn Beckham months later. She has also been rumored to have flings with race car driver Lewis Hamilton and Tobey Maguire, 42, with whom she was spotted right after he separated from his wife.

Does she have social media?
Does she see herself marrying Scott?
Well, yes. After jetting to Milan from LA on Oct. 14, Scott asked Sofia to be his bride. “During a romantic candlelit dinner, he popped the question, and Sofia said yes,” a source tells In Touch exclusively of the pair. “He went ring shopping while they were in Milan but hasn’t purchased one yet — he gets Sofia’s funky style and is on the hunt for the ideal rock.” He’s convinced, adds the source, “that they were made for each other.”
