Those close to the couple say their romance is real — and not surprising!

We were shocked when rumors first swirled that John Mellencamp, 59, and wife of 18 years, Elaine Irwin, split — and we were even more surprised to learn he’s now dating Meg Ryan, 49. But those closest to the pair say this romance was a long time coming!

A source close to Meg tells’s Naughty But Nice Rob, “Meg has liked John for a long time, and they are very comfortable together.”

The friend goes on to say the couple is not afraid to flaunt their new romance.

“They already looked like an old married couple when they strolled through [New York’s] West Village or spent time on Martha’s Vineyard,” the ‘friend’ says. “They don’t care what people say.”

You can’t choose who you love, but we think the couple should show a bit of class and not flaunt their new romance all over town! What do YOU think?
