Brad Pitt sees ‘long-term potential’ in his relationship with Ines De Ramon.
The 59-year-old reportedly feels his relationship with celebrity nutritionist Ines, 30, can last a long time.
A source told UsWeekly: ‘He’s definitely into her and although things are still relatively new, he absolutely sees long-term potential in their relationship.
‘Brad and Ines spend as much of their free time together as possible, despite their busy schedules.’
The insider went on to explain that the Mr and Mrs Smith star – who was married to Friends’ actress Jennifer Aniston from 2000 until 2005 – ‘really enjoys’ spending time with Ines, whom he dined with in LA last week, because she has such a ‘positive outlook’ on life.

The source added: ‘He really enjoys being with her because she’s such an uplifting energy, she consistently looks on the bright side of things, and is always up for an adventure. He also appreciates that she’s super laid back and has such a positive outlook on life.’
The comments come just weeks after it was reported that the pair were having a ‘really wonderful time’ with each other and that Ines had become a ‘big hit’ amongst Brad’s close circle of friends as they insisted that the 30-year age gap was ‘not an issue’ for either of them.
A source said: ‘Brad and Ines are having a really wonderful time with each other. Their relationship feels comfortable and playful.
‘She is a big hit with Brad’s friends and the age gap isn’t an issue for either of them.
‘He has more energy than ever and they are excited about what’s to come next for them.’
Pitt was previously married to Oscar winner Angelia Jolie who also serves as a humanitarian.
Together they raised Maddox, 21, Pax, 18, Zahara, 17, Shiloh, 16, and 14-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

Pitt and de Ramon reportedly started dating in November of last year, and they’ve gotten very close in the several succeeding months.
Speaking exclusively toearlier this month, an insider revealed that Brad has now introduced Ines to ‘most of’ the six children he shares with ex-Angelina, while detailing how he and his new partner have each been a source of support to one another after ‘bonding’ over their respective divorces.
Ines’ ex-husband, The Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley, 40, officially filed for divorce on February 17 – five months after their split was confirmed by a spokesperson.
‘The decision to separate is mutual and occurred five months ago. They request privacy at this time,’ the rep stated in September.
Paul is representing himself in the divorce and stated in his filing that their marriage of four years ended due to ‘irreconcilable differences.’
Ines and Paul do not share any children so it is likely that their divorce will prove to be much less complicated than Brad’s, which has involved a lengthy and very messy custody battle with Angelina that has yet to be fully resolved.
But, the source said, Brad is receiving plenty of support from Ines during his ongoing legal battle with Angelina, even as the celebrity health coach deals with the breakdown of her own marriage.
‘Ines does the same for Brad who is unfortunately still dealing with his messy divorce from Angie,’ the actor’s close friend shared. ‘They actually bonded over their divorces and are quite serious.’

Lots of kids: ‘She has met most of his kids,’ the insider added, referring to the six children he shares with Angelina – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne (L to R: Shiloh, Vivienne, Jolie, Zahara and Knox in 2019)
‘She has met most of his kids,’ the insider added, referring to the six children he shares with Angelina.
‘Brad’s relationship with Angie was such a high-profile disaster and it is quite the opposite with Ines. She is zero drama and very lowkey.’
As for what Angelina might have to say about Brad and Ines’ romance, the source insists the actor ‘doesn’t give a damn’ what she thinks about his relationship, saying: ‘He especially doesn’t give a damn what Angie thinks. In fact he wants her to know that he is happy with someone else.’
The Oscar winner also isn’t worried about Ines’ ex, Paul, who began dating 22-year-old model Natalie Zuckerberg at around the same time as Brad and Ines’ relationship was made public.

‘Brad does not care what Paul thinks of him, nor what Paul thinks of him dating Ines,’ she source shared.
‘Even though Paul is out of the picture, Brad and Ines are going to continue keeping it on the DL.’
In November, Brad was spotted for the first time with Ines outside of a Bono concert in LA. The two were being incredibly affectionate with each other and were seen smiling as they embraced each other.
Since then, they have been seen together on numerous occasions, including the LA premiere party for Brad’s latest film, Babylon.
Ines also showed up for her boyfriend’s 59th birthday party in December.
‘They were very cute and flirty. You could tell that she makes him happy,’ a source who attended the party told People.

Later that month, Brad and Ines rang in the New Year together with a romantic getaway to Cabo San Lucas.
Sadly, Brad and Ines were forced to spend Valentine’s Day apart, as he is currently in New York City filming his latest movie, Wolves, with George Clooney.
That did not stop Brad from showing his love for her. On the special holiday, Ines was spotted outside of her work looking very happy after receiving a huge bouquet of pink flowers, along with a baguette.
She appeared to be on cloud nine when she left her office, clutching tightly onto the ceramic vase the contained the beautiful peonies. She held the baguette under her arm as smiled at awaiting photographers.
Brad and Angelina romance seemed like a true fairytale – until it was not.
The A-listers met on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2003. At the time, Brad was married to Jennifer Aniston. The Friends star filed for divorce from Brad two years later, in March 2005, amid growing suspicion that he was secretly dating Angelina.
