British actor Donovan Leitch, who once dated Gwyneth Paltrow, has definitely moved on from the Iron Man actress. He’s now engaged to his girlfriend Libby Mintz, his rep has confirmed to Us Weekly.
Leitch’s engagement announcement comes only a month after his estranged wife Kirsty Hume filed for divorce after 13 years of marriage. However, the pair, who share a daughter, Violet, 10, have been quietly separated for some time.
You may remember that not so long ago Leitch and Paltrow shared a smooch during an L.A. Dodgers game. The photo of the lip-locked pair emerged earlier this year, when the actress was still married to her rocker beau Chris Martin, and many believed this kiss could have played a part in the pair’s “conscious uncoupling.”
However, the Cutting Glass actor denied there was any romance happening with Paltrow once their kiss pictures surfaced, telling the Daily Mail, “I was just saying goodbye to her. It was purely innocent. We were sitting in the owner’s box in front of 30,000 people with her two children right next to us. That isn’t exactly the setting for a secret liaison.”
“But the telephoto picture turned it into more. But it’s her. Her life is constantly under surveillance. Gwyneth and I have always been close,” he added.
Moving on, Leitch is very happy with his fiancé, who also happens to be an actress and has been cast in small roles in films such as Fired Up! and Sydney White. Congratulations to the happy couple on their engagement!
And as for Paltrow, well, she’s rumored to be romancing a new man, Glee producer Brad Falchuk.
