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.

3. She's an Animal Lover: Emily's Instagram feed is filled with photos of dogs—her friends' and her own. This is a good thing considering how often Jake is spotted with his dogs, Atticus and Boo.

Jake is one of Taylor Swift's five biggest heartbreaks!

4. She's Got Italian Roots: According to an Italian Vogue profile, Emily has some Irish heritage, but her great-grandparents immigrated to the U.S. straight from Italy.

5. She'd Like to Smooch Someone Other Than Jake: According to Emily's Sports Illustrated Rookie bio, the celeb she'd most like to do a kissing scene with is Bradley Cooper!

Somehow, we think anyone with an affinity for Bradley Cooper would also be pretty pleased to lock lips with Jake Gyllenhaal!
