A few months after splitting from the former model Erica Packer, James Packer is reportedly in a relationship with another one of Australia’s most famous faces: Miranda Kerr.

Miranda Kerr split from her husband, Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom, in October.

This morning, Women’s Day have published a story, reporting their secret romance and claiming that the relationship between the pair is serious.

The Woman’s Day cover features Packer and Kerr photoshopped into a picture together, with the headline: “Head over Heels: The Billionaire, The Supermodel and Their Red Hot Romance’’.

Fairfax have also reported that the editor of Woman’s Day, Fiona Connolly, will be “standing behind the story 100 per cent.”

Sources apparently close to Packer, 46, and Kerr, 30, told The Daily Telegraph that the relationship started only “very recently”.

Are James Packer and Miranda Kerr dating?

Representatives from Packer and Kerr have neither confirmed nor denied the reports, despite being approached by reporters nearly a week ago.

Three months ago Packer ended his six-year marriage to Erica, with whom he has three children. Kerr split from Bloom in October after three years of marriage. The couple have one child, Flynn, aged 2.

Both Erica and Miranda are Gunnedah girls, and both rose to fame on the Aussie catwalk. The families have known each other for a number of years, and even holidayed together in Tahiti in 2012. Kerr and Bloom took their son Flynn, on a holiday with the Packer children Indigo and Jackson.

As with any new couple in the public eye, they have already earned their own hashtag: #packerr
