Brad Pitt’s new girlfriend, German model and Angelina Jolie lookalike Nicole Poturalski, is reportedly still married to her husband, with whom she shares a son.

The Polish-born 27-year-old wed German restauranteur Roland Mary, 68, eight years ago and the pair remain together to this day, according to Daily Mail.

Nicole, or ‘Nico’ as she calls herself on her Instagram, still uses her husband’s surname, Mary, professionally.

The couple shares a seven-year-old son, Emil, while Roland has been ‘married several times and has five children’ a source told the publication.

His ‘philosophical’ approach to marriage, the source added, means that he and Nicole have an ‘open marriage’ where her ‘close friendship’ with A-lister Brad isn’t an issue.

Brad, 56, and Nicole are said to have met at Roland’s Berlin restaurant, Borchardt, in August 2019 while on a promotional tour for his most recent film, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.

The Oscar-winner reportedly became friends with Roland while shooting an earlier Quentin Tarantino-directed film, Inglorious Basterds, and has been dining at Borchardt whenever he’s in the German capital ever since.

Brad and Nicole were first spotted by eagle-eyed paparazzi on Wednesday, first at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport and later at Provence’s Le Castellet Airport in photos published by The Sun.

They were thought to be en route to Brad’s South of France holiday home where he and ex-wife Angelina Jolie tied the knot back in 2014.

Clad in masks and wearing sunglasses and hats, the pair were said to be loved up and cuddly, leaving little doubt that the model and actor are very much an item.

Nicole is 29 years her new beau’s junior, and the first women reported to be in Brad’s life since his split with Ange back in 2016 after a decade together.

The pair share six children together and are still finalising their divorce more than four years later.

Fans were quick to compare Nicole to the star’s former partner, with the two women sharing very similar facial structure and the same trademark plump lips.

Who is Nicole Poturalski?

Nicole is a 27-year-old Polish-born fashion model who is signed with a number of global model agencies.

She goes by Nico Potur on social media where she boasts an impressive 180k Instagram followers.

Nicole is mum to one son, seven-year-old Emil, who she shares with her husband, restauranteur Roland Mary, 68.

“Angel Energy. Best Friend. Best Company. Gang!” she captioned the snap.

Also on her Instagram account, the model has been making frequent reference to her ‘love’ and ‘better half’ in cryptic posts that date back to February suggesting that she and Brad have been an item for several months already, despite only being photographed together fairly recently.
