Chad Michael Murray has a new love in his life!

The former One Tree Hill star has struck up a romance with Australian actress Nicky Whelan, who he met on the set of upcoming sci-fi thriller Left Behind, scheduled for release next year.

Chad posted a pic of himself and his new love sharing a kiss to Twitter on Wednesday night, captioning the photo, “I am a lucky lucky man.  Blessed 2 feel the way I do with @NickyWhelan! I hope each of u feels the same in ur world!"

While this relationship may be new, Chad has had his fair share of high-profile romances in the past.

Just last month, Chad broke up with his fiancee, Kenzie Dalton, a former One Tree Hill extra whom he met in 2005, when she was just 17.

Prior to that relationship, Chad was married to his One Tree Hill co-star, Sophia Bush, who attempted to have their union annulled on the basis of fraud after only five months together. Sophia’s petition was denied and the couple later divorced.

Although there were rumors that Chad had cheated on Sophia with his House of Wax co-star Paris Hilton, neither member of the couple explicitly confirmed these reports.

Sophia did hint at his infidelity in an interview with People, telling the magazine of their split, “It's not that I don't respect other women in my position, but there are things I won't forgive.”
