Leonardo DiCaprio's mum 'desperate for him to settle down'


Serial dater Leonardo DiCaprio's mother is apparently "begging" him to settle down and stop playing the field.

The 39-year-old actor is known as something of a ladies' man and has dated models including Gisele Bündchen and Bar Refaeli in the past.

His most recent girlfriend was 22-year-old German Victoria's Secret beauty Toni Garrn, but earlier this month it was reported they had split.

Now his mother, Irmelin, is thought to be stepping in, in the hope she can calm her son's wild ways.

"She's been begging him to put his partying and womanising behind him," an insider explained to the US edition of OK! magazine.

"She's sick of getting attached to whomever he's dating, only to see then cast aside for a newer model."

Leonardo had a high-profile relationship with Blake Lively in 2011, but things ended in October of the same year.

She's now moved on, marrying Ryan Reynolds in 2012 and announcing earlier this month that they are expecting their first child.

And it seems Irmelin is keen for her son to follow a similar path.

"She thinks a child would fill a hole in his life that's causing him to be so cavalier with women," the source summarised.

Leonardo and Toni started dating in May last year. Prior to that, he'd been in a relationship with American model Erin Heatherton, which lasted from December 2011 to October the following year.
