Just when we thought Jake Gyllenhaal preferred blondes, he seems to be crossing over to the dark side.

According to an Us Weekly report, Taylor Swift's ex-boyfriend has moved on to dating brunette model Emily DiDonato.

According to the mag, Jake and Emily met at a SoulCycle class in NYC. But just who is this 22-year-old stunner? Here are five things you need to know about Emily DiDonato.

1. She's a Modeling Maven: This Victoria's Secret Angel is also a model in the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She's also done work for Ralph Lauren's Rugby Line, Guess by Marciano, Calvin Klein and Maybelline.

2. She's a New Yorker: Excelsior! Emily was born and raised in Goshen, a small town in Orange County. Jake hails from New York City, but the common roots are there.
