A source tells PEOPLE that Hadid likes that Cooper is also a parent because "he gets it"
The two have been spending plenty of time together over the past several weeks, and a source tells PEOPLE that Hadid "enjoys" dating him.
"Her daughter will always come first," the source says. "She loves that Bradley is a dad, because he gets it. She finds him more mature than guys she dated in the past. They keep spending a lot of time together. They have dinner dates several times a week. It makes her happy."
The source went on to say that Hadid, 28, doesn't date "just to date," but is dating Cooper because she "finds him interesting and attractive."
Hadid, who is mom to Khai, 3, was first linked to Cooper, 48, in early October, when they were spotted dining together at Via Carota in New York City's West Village neighborhood before getting into the same SUV.
Days after their dinner outing, the two were spotted in N.Y.C. together again as Hadid rode in the same car as Cooper, with the actor behind the wheel.
A source told PEOPLE in October that there was an attraction between the two, though it was early days.
"They both have kids, big careers, busy lives and understand what life is like in these circles. It’s cute…and there is an attraction.”
Though many of their outings together have been in New York City, they have ventured out for weekend trips as well.
“She is getting to know Bradley outside of the city. They take weekend trips together," another source told PEOPLE last month. "She has fun.”
