Lala Kent’s attempts to remain coy about her mystery man have fallen short, as Page Six can exclusively reveal that model Don Lopez is the person behind the face tattoos.
Shortly after Kent, 32, teased her Instagram followers with a glimpse of her new love interest, we were able to match up the ink and identify Lopez.
Kent and Lopez, 30, have a few things in common: They are both single parents to little ones, and they have both lost their fathers.
While Kent co-parents 1-year-old daughter Ocean with ex-fiancé Randall Emmett, Lopez is dad to a toddler-aged son, whom he refers to as “the best thing that ever happened” to him.
Lopez, whose tattoos extend to his arms and torso, lives in Los Angeles and has modeled for Balenciaga, Givenchy, Gucci, Sean John and boohooMAN. He also enjoys bike riding.
Though neither he nor Kent have gone Instagram-official, the reality star recently admitted that she “might be in love.”
“I don’t know how that happened!” she confessed during an Oct. 7 episode of SiriusXM’s “Jeff Lewis Live.”
Kent told Lewis her friends had been “trying to hook [her] up with” the unnamed guy “for a long time” and that they “finally met.”
“We had a lot of fun,” she repeated a few times.
Kent said it was the mystery man’s looks that initially caught her eye, gushing, “When the face hits right, it’s like, game over.”
However, she also loves his brain. “He’s very smart,” she noted. “And his face, like, doesn’t match what comes out of his mouth. He’s a unicorn.”
When pressed about his age — given that Emmett, 51, is 20 years her senior — Kent revealed that her new man is 38.
Given the age discrepancy (Lopez turned 30 in March), it’s unclear whether he’s the guy who’s stolen Kent’s heart.
Page Six has contacted Kent and Lopez seeking comment.
