Forget turkey. Seems Kim Kardashian will be feasting on prime Canadian beefcake this Thanksgiving. The callipygian starlet stepped out on Sunday night with model Gabriel Aubry, best known as the former flame of Halle Berry, with whom he has a ridiculously cute daughter, 2-year-old Nahla.

"He has already met [mom] Kris Jenner, as well as Khloé and Kourtney," the snitch tells L&S. "They're all wild about him."

Aubry and Berry confirmed they were kaput in April, although their four-year romance reportedly fizzled several months before. Halle, for her part, has recently been hot and heavy with Olivier Martinez, her co-star in the forthcoming thriller "Dark Tide .
