Sofia and Scott went public with their romance in late September after first being linked back in May, when they insisted they were just 'homies'.

As well as being a self-confessed 'sex addict' and notorious womanizer, Scott is a father-of-three, raising three children, Mason, seven, Penelope, five, and Reign, two, with ex-girlfriend of 10 years Kourtney Kardashian, 38.

Sofia wore a mismatched bikini which featured canary yellow bottoms and a scarlet triangle top, while Scott was seen wearing small black trunks. 

The model posted an Instagram picture on Monday of herself cozying up to her boyfriend as they stood on a stretch of sand near the beach with surfboards and palm trees visible in the background.

Scott shared a similar photo to his social media accounts with Sofia sitting on his lap and the words 'Surf's up burh' emblazoned across the front.

In May, Sofia revealed on Twitter that her father was keeping tabs on her as she enjoyed a trip to the South of France with Scott.

'My dad tracks my phone once a day,' she wrote. 'Awkwardly enough I get a notification every time. I think it's funny so I don't tell him I know.' 

The blonde beauty has shared in the past that her father is especially careful with her because her older half-sibling Nicole Richie was such a party animal.

'My dad is more strict because of my sister. I feel like now he's on the preventative side,' she told Elle magazine in 2014. 

She added: 'It's not like I'm doing anything bad, but he went through all that with Nicole, so he's just strict to prevent it from happening again.' 

At the time of the tweet, the model was dispelling rumors through social media that she and Scott were an item.

'Just so everyone can get their panties out of their asses, Scott and I are just homies,' Sofia shared on Twitter on May 28.

Her comments came just hours after the two were pictured playfully wrestling on the deck of their luxury yacht, Scott lifting a squealing Sofia as he flirtily manhandled her.

Scott's former on-and-off girlfriend and mother to his three children Kourtney Kardashian, 38, thinks his romance with the young Richie is a 'little weird', according to US Weekly.

'Kourtney thinks this fling with Sofia is a little weird, but nothing shocks her anymore,' a source said to the publication. 'Kourtney just wants Scott to be his old self. 

'She shares three kids with him, so she'll always want the best for him and will always make sure he's happy.'

During a May epsiode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Scott admitted that he was addicted to sex after bringing a woman back to his hotel room while on a family trip to Costa Rica earlier that year. 

'I'm a sex addict. I'm a f**ked up, horrible sex addict,' Disick said at the dinner table in front of Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kris Jenner and her boyfriend Corey Gamble.

Kourtney told her former lover, 'You had your chance.' 

'I thought we were spending our whole lives together and I've done everything I can,' she declared.

Khloe took the same stance as her sister over Scott's confession and she threw a drink over him, as she slammed: 'If you need to get your d**k wet that badly, then get your f**king d**k wet.'

Scott's enjoyed a lengthy dating history over the years which includes a bevy of beautiful models and actresses.

He enjoyed the company of Chantal Jeffries over the summer in addition to being spotted making out with Emma Blanchard in the Hamptons in the middle of July. 

In May, Scott grew close to raven-haired Bella Thorne at the Cannes Film Festival after being spotted in with model Ella Ross in Los Angeles.

He cuddled up with brunette beauty Jessica Harris just days after bringing Bella Banos on the family vacation to Costa Rica.

In 2016, Disick enjoyed the company of model Megan Blake Irwin, Christine Burke and Lina Sandberg, to name a few.
