Elliot & Sofia Started Dating After She Split From Scott Disick

Elliot came into the picture after Sofia’s split from Scott Disick. She dated the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star from September 2017 to August 2020. Scott revealed on KUWTK that the pair broke up once Sofia gave him “an ultimatum” to choose her or his ex Kourtney Kardashian, who is also the mother of his three children. Sofia went on to date Matthew Morton, who is the younger brother of the late Harry Morton, before she ended up with Elliot.

In January 2024, Sofia announced that she and Elliot were expecting their first child together during an interview with Vogue.

“I found out very, very early,” she told the publication. “I was about four weeks pregnant. I was on a trip to Milan for fashion week, and I was going to the Prada show. I was doing a really quick 24-hour turnaround, and I felt terrible but didn’t think much of it. I thought it was jet lag.”

Sofia then explained how supportive Elliot was when she was taking pregnancy tests.

“[Elliot] is such a sweet guy, he always wants to protect my emotions and expectations,” she explained, adding, “So, he kind of sat me down and said, ‘If these are negative, don’t be upset. Our moment will come.’ When we turned over all three tests at the same time, they were all positive.”
