Model 'having the best time' after break-up with DiCaprio

Erin Heatherton isn't heartbroken after her split from Leonardo DiCaprio.

The 23-year-old model - who broke up with the 37-year-old 'Inception' actor last week after 10 months together amid reports he did not want to settle down and they struggled to see each other because of their busy schedules - insists she is doing fine after their break-up.

She told E! News: "I'm having the best time right now. I couldn't feel more beautiful with all my friends. It's wonderful."

The Victoria's Secret model's best friend Lily Aldridge, 26, also confirmed Heatherton is doing fine and thinks it won't be long before she is dating someone else.

She said: "I don't think Erin's gonna have any problems getting a man. I'm pretty sure there's a line around New York City waiting for her.

"Every guy I know is like:'Please introduce me to Erin!'"

Aldridge - who is married to 'Kings of Leon' rocker Caleb Followill with whom she shares four-month-old daughter Dixie Pearl - also revealed she is doing everything she can to help Erin move on.

She said: "Erin is my girl! She's my daughter's godmother, she's my best friend and she's just amazing. She is such an angel, such a star. She's the best."

DiCaprio, who recently admitted he hasn't met the love of his life yet, has wasted no time since the split and was spotted flirting with a string of models at a Halloween party in the plush Standard hotel in New York recently.
