Liam Hemsworth and Gabriella Brooks haven’t publicly addressed the rumors that they are dating. But, the couple has indirectly confirmed their romance, as they were spotted kissing on the beach at Byron Bay in Australia.
The Australian magazine New Idea posted the photos over the weekend, and they featured Brooks in a red and white striped bikini and Hemsworth in some blue swim trunks covered in a number of tropical images.

The new couple wasn’t afraid to show some PDA in front of others who were enjoying the New Year at Byron Bay beach. Hemsworth and Brooks also reportedly spent New Year’s Eve together, and he introduced her to his parents, Craig and Leonie, in mid-December.
That meeting was also caught on camera, and an insider told Us Weekly at the time that Hemsworth’s family approves of Brooks.
“Liam feels comfortable with Gabriella. His family approves of her and really likes her, which is very important to him,” dished the source.
Brooks is a 21-year-old model from Sydney, Australia, and she is also a student at the University of Sydney who is studying ancient history and archaeology. She previously dated British singer Matt Healy, and they went public with their relationship at the 2017 Brit Awards.

After his sudden split from ex-wife Miley Cyrus, Hemsworth was briefly linked to Dynasty actor Maddison Brown after they were photographed holding hands in New York City back in October.
Hemsworth and Cyrus split in August after less than eight months of marriage, and they finalized their divorce last month. It wasn’t difficult for them to come to an agreement, as they did have a prenup and there were no children to fight over.
Even though the split appeared to be amicable, Hemsworth’s sister-in-law Elsa Pataky – who is married to Chris Hemsworth – said in November that Liam was “a little bit down” after the relationship that he dedicated ten years to came to an end. She added that he was coping well, and he is a strong boy who deserves the best.
“I think he deserves much better. You always find support in your family, and he’s joined at the hip with his brother [Chris], who has been there to give all the strength he needed,” said Pataky
