Blood Diamond actor Leonardo Dicaprio is to wed Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli in June, according to reports.

The pair have been dating since 2006 and are "ecstatic" about their upcoming nuptials.

Speaking to the National Enquirer, a source said: "Bar's mom and dad think Leo's a total gentleman and love the way he's treated their daughter."

Setting the big day in June, when the Victoria's Secret model turns 22, the couple are thought to be planning a number of celebratory parties.

"They say they'll probably have a private ceremony in Israel, then a big ring ceremony and party in the US towards the end of the year," the source added.

The 32-year-old Titanic star toured Israel with Bar earlier this month including sights such as the Wailing Wall, the holiest site in Judaism.

However the trip also saw two bodyguards working in Leo's security team arrested following a clash with photographers.

"The reason they made the trip to Israel is that Leo wanted to get Bar's parents' approval before he popped the question. Now they are busy making wedding plans," the source added.

Leonardo has been romantically linked to a number of supermodels in the past including Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen and Eva Herzigova. The Departed star also dated Brazilian beauty Gisele from 2002 to 2006.
