Liam Hemsworth and Gabriella Brooks appear to have taken the next step in their relationship and found themselves a four-legged friend to call their own.
The couple seem to have used an adorable French bulldog pup, with Liam and Gabriella stepping out with their new addition in Byron Bay, Australia.
As well as stopping at the shops for a spot of retail therapy in the quirky coastal town, Liam was seen fussing over his new pup.
The particular Hunger Games actor, 30, sat in the car with his pooch sitting pretty on his lap, cutely sticking its head plus legs out the window.
Liam was dressed down for their day out in Bryon in a grey t-shirt and navy shorts, while a fresh faced Gabriella rocked a black playsuit and trainers.
She and Liam have been dating since December last year, following his move back to Australia after splitting from ex-wife Miley Cyrus.
Liam had married long-term girlfriend Miley in December 2018, right after 10 years of dating, at her family home in Nashville, Tennessee.
Eight months later, however, the on/off couple announced their decision to split, with Liam later moving on with Gabriella plus returning to his native down under.
Sources had told People at the time that things were getting ‘ serious’ for the pair, with Liam’ s older brother Chris later celebrating his brother’ h move back home.
While joking he had managed to get Liam ‘ out of Malibu’, Chris said that he thinks little brother Liam is the best looking Hemsworth, after seeing their Men’ s Health Australia cover released in May.
‘ Did you see the Men’s Health cover? I thought, “Not bad kid. Not bad. ” He’s out there training and staying fit, and back in Australia doing his thing, ’ Chris told News. com. au.
‘ It’s Australian living, We guess. We got him out of Malibu! ’
In his cover shoot, Liam credited exercise for helping him to ‘ rebuild’ following the breakdown of his marriage.
Addressing his amped up exercise regime, Liam said: ‘ I was doing like 10km a day or something at one point, which I’ve never done in my life. ’
Asked what his focus had been, the Isn’ t It Romantic star replied: ‘Rebuilding? Yeah, that’s a good way to put it. ’
He added: ‘ This last six months, honestly, for keeping my head level and just staying balanced, I’d say exercise has been big for me. ’
