It’s not just Lea’s professional life that’s moving forward! The actress posted her first picture with her new beau and totally opened about how good it feels to be in love! We’re so happy for her.
It looks like Lea Michele has found someone to enjoy those romantic hikes she’s going on. On Oct. 12, the 28-year-old actress took to Instagram to share a message about love — with a pic of her holding hands with her new beau! We’ve seen her out with Matthew Paetz multiple times, but this is the first time she has talked about him publicly!
Lea Michele Loves New Boyfriend
“To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides,” she captioned the picture. This is the first time that Lea has acknowledged that she’s dating again, with the pic that appears to be her new boyfriend, Matthew Paetz. The two started dating in May. Lea posted this with an assortment of pics of her on a hike, so we can assume that he’s her new workout buddy as well (since he’s in great shape just like she is!).
The Glee star met Matthew while filming the music video for her song, “On My Way,” but the couple have moved pretty fast — the reportedly began living together in September, just four months into their relationship.
This is, of course, the first relationship for Lea since the sad passing of her boyfriend and co-star, Cory Monteith, who died in July 2013. We’ve got to say, it’s so nice to see Lea smiling again and finding love again — she’s always said it’s extremely important to her.
Do you love Lea and Matthew together, HollywoodLifers?
