A source told the entertainment site in September, "It's pretty serious. They're totally in love."

The duo had been spotted on both coasts attending events from a technology seminar at Fox Studios in LA to evenings out to dinner with friends.

Hedison formerly dated Ellen DeGeneres for three years. Their relationship ended in 2004. Foster was in a relationship with Cydney Bernard for 20 years before splitting in 2008. They have two sons together, Charles and Kit.

At the Golden Globes in January 2013, the Oscar winner addressed the rumors of her sexuality while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award. It was the hot topic of conversation on Twitter because the speech was so unexpected after Foster being so private about her personal life for decades.

She said, "This is not going to be a big coming-out speech tonight because I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago back in the stone age — in those very quaint days when a fragile girl would open up to trusted friends and family and coworkers and then gradually [and] proudly to everyone who knew her."

It looks like Foster is out both publicly and privately now.

Congratulation, Jodie and Alexandra!
