"I'm so grateful for his presence in my life," Porizkova said of Sorkin. "He helped heal me and reclaim myself. There truly may be no better man, no man who's more genuinely 'good.' He's brilliant and witty and funny and sexy."

"But it doesn't matter how much we may wish we were birds of a feather -- we're still a duck and a goose," she added. "As unfiltered as I usually am, this involves someone else's privacy -- so this is all I'll ever say on the subject."

Porizkova and Sorkin made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Academy Awards in April. Page Six said at the time that the pair had been dating for a few months.

Porizkova's estranged husband, Ric Ocasek, died at age 75 in September 2019. Porizkova has two sons with Ocasek.

Sorkin was previously married to Julia Bingham, with whom he has a daughter.
