DiCaprio's rumored and real-life romances.
Serial ladies man Leonardo DiCaprio has set his sights on a new stunner — a tall, leggy blonde named Aferdita Dreshaj.

While he’s taking a break from movies, the Django Unchained star hasn’t given-up on his other favorite past-time: romancing stunning women.

According to E! News, DiCaprio and Dreshaj were spotted kissing and getting intimate on a hotel balcony in Miami last weekend.

The rumored new couple weren’t alone: DiCaprio’s famous party pals, Jonah Hill and Bradley Cooper, were also spotted in the Sunshine State.

Dreshaj, 26, definitely fits the bad boy’s identikit for the perfect woman — she is a model, tall, blonde and very leggy.

She also bears a resemblance to DiCaprio’s famous ex-girlfriends, which include supermodels Bar Rafaeli, Gisele Bundchen and Erin Heatherton.

But just who is Aferdita Dreshaj? Here are seven facts:

1. Born on July 19, 1986 in Montenegro, Aferdita Dreshaj is of Albanian descent. Her birth sign is Cancer (DiCaprio’s sign is a matching Scorpio).

2. She moved to the US when she was 12 and started modeling at 17, after a photographer discovered her.

3. Dreshaj is best known back home as a beauty queen — she was crowned Miss Universe Kosovo in 2011.

4. The blonde beauty can sing too. In fact, she is a well-known singer in Albanian speaking countries, having debuted with her first single “Nëse Je Burrë” in 2009.


5. “Aferdita” means, “near to the day” and the Albanian form of Aphrodite — the Greek goddess of love.

6. At 6 feet tall she is the same height as her movie star beau DiCaprio.

7. She’s a reality star too. Aferdita competed on the Albanian version of Dancing With The Stars. On her Twitter account she previously stated, “This and Miss Universe best experiences ever!”
