Talk about May/December romances. 69-year-old Calvin Klein started dating 20-year-old Nicholas Gruber last May. And now it’s January and Klein just hosted a huge shindig at Indochine for Gruber’s 21st birthday (yay – he’s legal!) that boasted a guest list that included everyone from Daphne Guinness to Anna Wintour to Alec Baldwin.

According to numerous Gawker posts, Nicholas Gruber was raised in Crystal River, Florida. Gawker also says that Gruber has used quite a few aliases, including Nicholas Oo (on his Facebook page), Nick London (on his racy modelmayhem page, which was taken down shortly after it was reported about and most interestingly Aaron Skyline and Zeke on various porn shoots.

Whether he did porn or not, Gruber has come a long way baby. He now has 33 photographs on Patrick McMullan’s website (most with Klein and the smiley couple often dress as twins in matching flip flops, white shirts and tight muscle tees) and has hobnobbed with Bruce Weber, Danny Glover, George Hamilton and Aerin Lauder. That sure beats job hunting in Crystal River, Florida.

And Gruber seems to have gotten a new set of teeth and a better hairdresser too – ah, the perks of being Calvin Klein’s boyfriend.
