Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone are pros at keeping their relationship under wraps from public scrutiny. They were first spotted together in 2017 and little has come to be known about their romance other than DiCaprio's uncanny ability to turn into a viral meme and their eyebrow-raising age gap (the actor is 23 years older than his supermodel/actress girlfriend, who is currently 23 years old). So, how exactly did this relationship blossom?
Here, we track everything you need to know about one of Hollywood's most elusive couples.
December 2020: DiCaprio is reportedly enjoying "domestic life" with Morrone.
According to E! News, DiCaprio and Morrone are in it for the long haul.
"Leo and Cami are still going strong and doing really well. He's very cozy with Cami and they're serious," a source told the outlet of how the couple has been faring amid 2020.
"He is filming right now, but Leo has been settling into this domestic life with Cami, as opposed to all the time he used to spend out with his boys," continued the source. "He does really like his life with her and they're a lot more coupley than they used to be."
Late June 2020: The couple heads out for a low-key sushi date.
DiCaprio and Morrone were photographed leaving Los Angeles favorite sushi spot Nobu on Monday, June 29. Morrone wore an oversized olive-colored bomber jacket, ripped black denim, and red Converse sneakers, while DiCaprio hid completely from paparazzi under his matching green hoodie. Both wore face masks, as L.A. is currently seeing a surge in COVID-19 cases.
June 2020: DiCaprio celebrates Morrone's 23rd birthday.
Page Six reported that Morrone celebrated her 23rd birthday with a yacht party, accompanied by her famous beau. According to the publication, guests included Nina Dobrev and her rumored boyfriend Shaun White.
Per Page Six, "invitees wore cowboy hats and western attire," and DiCaprio was the only guest spotted wearing a mask.
February 2020: They attend the Oscars.
While DiCaprio and Morrone didn't walk down the red carpet together, their minutes-apart arrivals suggests they came at the same time. The two were also seated next to each other during the ceremony.
This is the first time that the couple has appeared at the same event during this year's awards season.
December 2019: Camila talks about their age difference.
During an interview with The Los Angeles Times, the young actress wasn't afraid to speak candidly on the age difference between her and her boyfriend.
"There's so many relationships in Hollywood—and in the history of the world—where people have large age gaps. I just think anyone should be able to date who they want to date," she said, while empathizing with people who are naturally inquisitive about their relationship. "I probably would be curious about it too."
October 2019: Camila thinks Leo is more than an Instagram boyfriend.
After a pap snapped a picture of DiCaprio taking photos of Morrone making multiple Instagram-worthy poses, the Internet was quick to make the scene go viral.
Speaking to Vanity Fair, Morrone lamented the viral meme fate.
"I saw the meme," she said. "Poor thing, he's being called an Instagram boyfriend. He's an environmentalist and a movie star and it doesn't mean a thing!"
July 2019: Camila's Instagram post alludes to her relationship.
Posting a photo of Hollywood couple Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart, who had a 25-year age gap, Morrone simply captioned the flick, "A love like this."

People were quick to speculate that she was probably referring to her large age difference with DiCaprio.
She addressed the critics later on her Instagram story, writing, "My God, people are so mean and full of anger with people that they know nothing about. I guess I just hope on this Friday that people learn to live with a little less hatred and place their time and interests elsewhere, because living without hatred feels pretty good."
