Hilary Duff Confirms Relationship with Personal Trainer Jason Walsh (VIDEO)
The 28-year-old actress has reportedly been seeing Jason Walsh since June and has now admitted the romance rumours are true, saying the hunk brings "excitement" to her life.
"We've known each other for a really long time and he's a great guy and we have a lot of fun together,” she told Good Day New York.
“It's nice to have that excitement in my life."
But the Lizzie McGuire star wasn't quite ready to put a label on her romance with Jason just yet.
When asked if she was "back in a relationship” she just laughed nervously and refused to comment.
Sources have been dubbing the pair as "casual" since they were rumoured to be dating back in June, with one insider saying there didn't appear to be anything romantic going on.
"They looked like they were having fun because the game was crazy but I didn't notice them acting affectionate of anything like that,” an onlooker said of the pair.
“They were just watching and cheering with everybody in the restaurant."
Another source said the pair had been "spending a lot of time together," even though the relationship started out as what seemed to be a good friendship.
"The pair have been spending a lot of time with each other in recent months, both in the gym and out at various restaurants to enjoy some fine dining, and it seems this budding romance began as a friendship."
Hilary’s relationship with the gym hunk marks the first since she divorced retired ice hockey player Mike Comrie.
The pair — who share 4-year-old son Luca — cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their divorce in February 2015, though the settlement wasn't finalized until a year later.
The star has definitely moved on from her divorce in a big way. Cheers to this new couple alert!
