Leonardo DiCaprio made a splash at the Lamas’ home over the holidays.
During an interview on Christmas Eve, Lorenzo Lamas revealed that his 23-year-old daughter Victoria has fallen for the Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood star.
“I know he’s very loved,” Lamas said New York Post. “I think they met last month. I’m not sure of the circumstances, but that’s what he told me.”
DiCaprio, 48, is single again in August after ending his four-year relationship with actress Camilla Morrone. Victoria and DiCaprio were spotted leaving the Hollywood hot spot together on December 20.

“He’s very tough,” Lamas said. “I told her to treat the relationship like a holiday—enjoy it while it lasts. And if it lasts longer than a normal holiday, great. But if not, save your heart. You know? Because she’s so young.”
The “Renegade” actor joked: “I told him that there’s no transatlantic travel with Leo, you know. Anyway, I’m excited for him. I know it’s been a while since he’s been in a serious relationship… He has a big heart, and he tends to give it freely.”

Victoria Lamas is one of three daughters with ex-wife Playboy Playmate Shauna Sand. The former couple divorced in 2002.
The Falcon Crest star has been married five times and has a total of six children.
She later clarified in a separate interview with the publication that Victoria and DiCaprio are “friends,” saying, “They’re not in a serious relationship. And I want that to be clear.”
He claims that they met in a “social setting” and not in a romantic setting. “They were seen at a club in West Hollywood once,” Lamas said. “I mean, it’s not dating.”

“Yes, I’m surprised, but they’re not dating. He loves her, obviously. But they’re not dating, and he doesn’t want to, because that would be too bad. It would be a shame for him if he happened to know that they were dating and must have read something about them not dating.”
“They’re just friends, but he was shocked, of course,” she added. “And that was my cautionary tale to him: Take it one step at a time. But right now, they’re not an item. They’re not mutually exclusive.”
Lamas, 64, is currently engaged to former model Kenna Scott, 37.
Asked if he was concerned about the 25-year age difference between DiCaprio and Victoria, he said: “Age is not a factor for me, as much as respect, trust and communication. That’s the main thing.”
DiCaprio has been linked to some of Hollywood’s biggest names over the years, including Gisele Bündchen and Blake Lively.
DiCaprio was recently reported to be in a relationship with Gigi Hadid.
Morrone spoke to the Los Angeles Times in 2019 about their age difference. “There are a lot of relationships in Hollywood and in the history of the world where people have huge age gaps,” Morrone said. “I think everyone should be able to date whoever they want.”
