A source speaks to People about their connection. The stars do have a relationship brewing, the source says, although it may not become serious. “They are having fun,” the insider says. “She’s independent, busy, and her days are filled with responsibilities so I don’t see anything serious happening right away if at all.”
Hadid has “had sort of a crush on [Cooper] for a while,” the source adds, claiming she may be open to exploring something greater than a friendship with him.
“[They have] things in common so it’s possible to see it progress,” the source admits. “It appears super casual now, but they both have kids, big careers, busy lives and understand what life is like in these circles. It’s cute…and there is an attraction.”
A source gives Us Weekly similar intel and addresses Hadid and Cooper’s 20-year age gap. Hadid is 28 while Cooper is 48. “They have a lot in common,” the source says. “They’re both single parents to a young daughter, and they share a similar sense of humor.”
In regards to her child, Hadid “has no intention of introducing Khai to anybody she dates unless she’s in a fully committed relationship,” the source says, adding that Hadid is “open to the idea of getting to know [Cooper] better.”
“[They] have been out a couple of times,” the source says. They met through a mutual friend, the insider adds, and “[she’s] really enjoying spending time [with him].”
Their ultimate relationship status is very up in the air. “It’s still far too early to know where things might be headed,” the source says. “[Although] things aren’t that serious right now, the attraction is there.”
