They've been dating for over six months, but it looks like Leonardo DiCaprio and his model girlfriend Erin Heatherton are still their honeymoon period.

The handsome couple only had eyes for each other – and barely paid any attention to their food – as they enjoyed a romantic lunch in New York yesterday.

Being forced to spend lots of time apart due to the 37-year-old's filming schedule and Erin's jet-setting modelling career, the pair revel in their rare time together.

Although she has spent the past week travelling in Spain and Turkey, the Illinois-born pin-up couldn't wait to reunite with her man in New York.

But they did manage to squeeze in some more time together over a week ago, when she visited him on location in Louisiana.

Last week, they were photographed riding bicycles in New Orleans, along with DiCaprio's mother Irmelin.

Last month, the Victoria's Secret Angel, 23, was spotted filming her first Hollywood film role in Growns Up 2.

She was seen making a cameo as a sexy car-washing cheerleader in the film, which also stars Adam Sandler, Salma Hayek and Taylor Lautner.

At the time, she tweeted Sandler's production company: '@Happymadison had a blast, if you ever need a sponge bath, you know who to call.'

Heatherton is the latest in a long list of famous models – and blondes – in DiCaprio's life.

He famously had a four year romance with Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen and a six year on/off romance with Israeli model Bar Refaeli.

Last summer, he enjoyed a brief fling with Blake Lively, before she started dating Ryan Reynolds.
