Tom Cruise is reportedly ready to make it official with his new girlfriend after apparently spending a lot of time together in London.

The Mission Impossible actor, 61, is reportedly "growing closer" to Russian socialite Elsina Khayrova, 36, with the pair having attended a gala dinner together in support of London's Air Ambulance Charity at the Raffles Hotel according to the Daily Mail.

The pair are said to have arrived separately, but sources claim Tom has been a "regular visitor" to her £10 million ($12.6 million) apartment in Knightsbridge of late.

A source told the publication: "It's well known within Elsina's circle that she and Tom are now an item."

They added: "They've grown very close over the past few weeks but take a lot of care not to be photographed together because they want to maintain their privacy.

"Tom has been staying the night at Elsina's apartment, which as you can imagine, is a very beautiful place. They enjoy hanging out together and despite their wealth, do a lot of the things that normal couples do."

According to the insider, the pair have enjoyed private dining at a number of swanky London restaurants, and have also apparently been taking walks together in Hyde Park, which is close to Elsina's home, while in disguise.

Tom was photographed in black tie at the event, while Elsina shared photos of herself in a black and white outfit to Instagram.

Tom was photographed chatting and joking with Prince William at the prestigious event, which raised £1.2 million ($1.5 million) for the charity, and marked his first public engagement since his father King Charles III was diagnosed with cancer. 

Tom and Elsina are believed to have met during a party in Mayfair last December, where onlookers claimed they appeared to be wrapped up in each other.

A source told the publication: "They were inseparable, clearly a couple. He seemed to be besotted with her."

Prior to her rumored romance with Tom, Elsina was previously married to Dimitry Tsvetkov, 43, who claimed that their difficult three-year divorce battle cost him £150 million ($190 million).

Dimitry claimed he'd spent over £10 million ($12.6 million) on clothes and £2 million ($2.5 million) on handbags for Elsina in the 11 years they were married.

He told the Daily Mail: "Irrespective of whoever she's with, Tom Cruise or anybody else, they should be aware that she likes the finer things in life and has expensive and luxurious taste. Tom should keep his eyes and wallet wide open. I'm happy for her, I wish her all the best."

Shortly after the gala, Tom was seen leaving London in a helicopter, which he piloted himself, before eventually heading to Las Vegas for the Super Bowl.

Neither Tom nor Elsina has commented publicly on their rumored romance as of yet.
