The 37-year-old actor was inspired after seeing how happy the 'Magic Mike' star is with his pregnant wife and their cute kids, reported Contactmusic. "Watching Matthew and his wife Camila play with their kids inspired Leo.
He isn't getting any younger and is beginning to think he'd like to have a family," a source said. DiCaprio's family, especially his mother Irmelin, are desperate for him to settle down and they think 23-year-old model Heatherton is the perfect choice.
"Leo's mother Irmelin met Erin in January and there was an instant connection. Between Matthew talking about fatherhood and his mother pushing for grandchildren, Leo is almost ready to take the plunge," the source added.
