Maybe it’s leftover Felicity nostalgia, or perhaps you were won over by her game-changing role in The Americans, but when Keri Russell announced that she and her husband of seven years, Shane Deary, were separating earlier this month, there seemed to be a collective “aww” for the actress. But now it seems our sympathy was unnecessary, as it’s being reported that Keri and Matthew Rhys (her co-star on the FX hit) might be dating. Hooray!
According to People, Keri, 37, and Matthew, 39, were spotted shopping together and strolling around her Brooklyn neighborhood just days before Christmas. The pair were also said to be looking at furniture on the street — a particularly domestic activity, if you ask us.
"They looked very much like a couple," the source says. "They were laughing and walking closely together."
Lest you worry Keri is moving on too quickly, it should be noted that, although she and Shane announced their split in December, they’ve actually been separated since early summer. And so far, it sounds as though they are focused on working together to be good parents to their two children: son River, 6, and daughter Willa, 2.
So if Keri has found love again with her TV hubby, we say good for her! And one thing’s for sure, we will definitely be tuning in to see their on-screen chemistry when the second season of The Americans premieres on FX in January 2014.
