Who is Damien Hirst Dating?
“Love Knows No Boundaries”, We all have heard this phrase, but in the case of Hirst, he is indeed making us believe that age is just a number and when you gotta feel, you gotta feel. Damien, who is going to celebrate his 57th birthday in June 2022, is currently dating a woman who is almost half of his age named Sophie cannel, aged 27. Sophie is a former ballet dancer and currently resides with Hirst in the U.K. The former ballet dancer has just turned 27 and is scarcely two years older than the eldest of his three sons.
Stating about his falling in love without boundaries philosophy, looking at the dating graph of Hirst, we can say that he never really cared about the number. His women are getting younger and younger. Maia Norman, a 55-year-old fashion designer, is his sons’ mother. Dаmіеn lіvеd wіth hіѕ gіrlfrіеnd Маіа frоm 1992 tо 2012.

The artist, 55, was seen setting up a cozy exhibition with Sophie, 27, as they walked arm in arm down the street. It was previously reported that Damien met Sophie at the swanky Chiltern Firehouse, where she used to work as a waitress.
Damien’s love life before Sophie included his long-time girlfriend Maia Norman, with whom he shares three sons. The former couple is the parents of sons Connor Ojala (26), Cassius Atticus (21), and Cyrus Joe (16). Although he never married Maia, he referred to him as his “common-law wife”. After giving birth to his eldest child, Connor, the artist spent much of his time in a remote farmhouse near Combe Martin in Devon.
