Lea Michele is seriously giddy thanks to her new boyfriend, and there’s just no hiding it. She’s just started dating iZombie actor Robert Buckley — although you probably know him as Clay Evans from One Tree Hill. If the way she smiled her way through the Fox Upfronts this week is any indication, the match is off to a great start.
Michele herself didn’t officially confirm their relationship, although sources have done so to outlets like Entertainment Tonight and Us Weekly. But when asked, she didn’t hesitate to mention how happy she’s feeling right now. Hmm… we wonder what special something could be making her feel so good?
“You know, I’m just feeling really great right now and super happy,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I feel very, very, very lucky and grateful in my life right now and that’s all that matters.”
After her February split from Matthew Paetz, her boyfriend of two years, Michele’s “super happy” means the fans are super happy as well.
Buckley may not have earned a direct mention at the Upfronts, but the pair is already stepping out in public. A spy tells Us Weekly that while eating out in Santa Monica, Michele and Buckley had their “arms wrapped around each other at their seats and rubbing each other’s backs.” Sounds like new love, all right — get it, girl.
