Who is Ela Kawalec?

Elizabeth Kawalec Witek was born in Poland but her exact date of birth is not known to public although she mentioned on one of her pictures on Instagram that she was born under the zodiac sign of Aquarius – she holds Polish nationality, but is currently residing in Miami, Florida US. She is popular for being a model and for being an ex-girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio.

Early life and education

Ela spent her entire childhood in the same city she was born in and grew up dreaming about becoming a model. There is not much known about her parents but it is said that they were supportive about Ela’s dream – she doesn’t talk about them or her siblings. She matriculated from one of the high schools in her hometown and then moved to Miami where she attended and graduated from the University of Miami, with a bachelor’s degree in Economics and Business Management. Even though Ela had a dream of becoming a model, this was not all that she was interested in – during her time at the university, she worked at the Ferraro Law Firm as a Legal Assistant. She is always the one to help others, which eventually made her volunteer too, and she is currently working with many charitable organizations such as the Roy & Lea Black Consequences Charity, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Florida, and Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand.


After moving to the US, Ela signed with Elite Model Management Miami who listed her as “Ella” on their website – it was a dream come true for her as she began her modelling career, and appeared mostly in swimwear. She has been active ever since and has also been working with Elite Model Management Los Angeles.

Other than being a model, Ela is also a part of Delos Business Company, and works as an analyst in the business development sector – her job is to support building projects through research and analyses while she is also in charge of new business initiatives. She also assists with the company’s marketing campaign which is focused on attracting new clients and creating even stronger relationships with its current clients.

Personal life

Even though Ela was already popular when she began dating Leonardo DiCaprio, after people found out about his new girlfriend who is a Polish model, everyone wanted to check her out and see who she is. Rumors started on 13 May 2016 when Leonardo was seen cycling around New York City in the morning with his new girlfriend, which is something he usually does with most of his girlfriends – they were seen partying together the night before that at Bodega Negra after which they switched to Marquee. Although neither of them had openly said that they were dating, the people who saw them claimed that they looked ‘couply’ as Leo was dancing, holding her in his arms, and kissing her. Ela is not Leo’s first blonde model, as he dated Toni Garn and Erin Heatherton, while his last relationship was with Kelly Rohrbach who is a model as well, and they dated for six months. People from the “Parade” magazine asked Leonardo if he was planning to settle down to which he responded that ‘the truth is, you can’t predict marriage. You can’t plan it. It’s just going to happen when it happens.’ Leonardo certainly is not ready to settle down as after only one week of being with Ela, he was seen at a nightclub with Victoria Lee Robinson – another girl who is a popular model.

Leonardo DiCaprio

There is only a handful of people out there who do not know who Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio is – one of the most famous actors in the world at the moment was born on 11 November 1974 in Los Angeles, California USA. His career of an actor and a movie producer created his net worth which is estimated to be over $240 million in 2019 – Leonardo has been nominated for six Academy Awards, four British Academy Film Awards, nine Screen Actors Guild Awards and 11 Golden Globe Awards, and has won one of each except for three Golden Globe Awards. He won his only Oscar so far in 2016 as the Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in “The Revenant” movie.

People mostly know Leonardo for his role in the “Titanic” romance movie shot in 1997 which became the highest grossing movie at that time, and he went on to star in globally acclaimed movies such as “The Man in the Iron Mask” in 1998, “Catch Me If You Can” in 2002, “Blood Diamond” in 2006, “Shutter Island” in 2010, “Inception” in 2010, as well as “The Revenant” in 2015. No doubt that there are numerous other movies for which Leonardo is famous as these are just some of the best ones he appeared in.

Leonardo is also known for dating many girls throughout the years, almost all blonde models. Leo’s first model is said to be Bridget Hall who he dated in 1994 and broke up with her soon afterwards although Bridget stated that nothing ever happened between them. Leo dated Brittany Daniel in the same year , then in 1995 Naomi Campbell for a very short period – the two are still friends today. One of his longest relationships was with Kristen Zang for two years, however, she was also the first model to break up with him as she said that he was immature. The next was Helena Christensen, a former Victoria’s Secret model, then Natasha Henstridge, and Amber Valleta for a short period of time in 1998. In the same year he dated Bijou Phillips, Eva Herzigova – another Victoria’s Secret model – and in 2000 Gisele Bundchen, staying with her until 2005 when she broke up with him – the two also remain friends. It seemed as Leo was tired of short-term relationships as he dated his next girlfriend Bar Refaeli, his third Victoria’s Secret model, from 2005 to 2011 with a half a year break during which he dated Anne Vyalitsyna – his fourth Victoria’s Secret model. As soon as he broke up with Bar Refaeli, he started dating Blake Lively, then Madalina Ghenea, and then another Victoria’s Secret model Erin Heatherton. In 2013, Leonardo dated his sixth Victoria’s Secret model Toni Garrn with whom he stayed for over a year – it was Kelly Rohrbach after her, then popular singer Rihanna, Ela Kawalec, Laura Whitmore, and most recently Victoria Robinson. These are only Leonardo’s ex-girlfriends which the public knows about – what about the others?

Likes and hobbies

Even though Ela doesn’t share much with the public, judging by her Instagram photographs, she loves to travel and enjoys spending time on the beaches in Miami. She visited the Pyramids of Teotihuacan located in Mexico, and spent some time volunteering in Thailand where she helped train and feed an elephant. She loves horseback riding and has her own horse called Falcon Cen, and likes to go shooting at the gun range, but two of her biggest passions football (soccer) and car racing – she loves watching NASCAR and tried racing herself in a Porsche 996.

Ela is a linguist

Since Ela can speak English, Spanish, and Polish fluently, so can be called a linguist – she can speak a few other languages as well, but knows only the basics.

Appearance and net worth

Ela’s current age is not known since she hasn’t shared her date of birth with the public. She has long blonde hair, blue eyes, is 5ft 7in (1.7m) tall, weighs around 128lb (58kg), her vital statistics are 34-23-33 so has an hourglass shaped body, and she wears shoes size 7.5.

According to authoritative sources, Ela’s current net worth is estimated to be close to $1 million, but is very likely to rise since she is working as a model, and as an analyst for Delos.

Social media presence

It seems as Ela is not one of those people who are very active on social media platforms – she doesn’t enjoy other people knowing things about her personal life and she prefers it that way. She only has an Instagram account which is followed by nearly 13,500 people (she was only followed by 1,000 people before she began dating Leonardo DiCaprio) while she’s posted only 44 photos so far.
