One of the most shocking news stories to come out last week was that former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Paul Nassif — Adrienne Maloof’s ex-husband — had found love once again. The Los Angeles plastic surgeon is currently dating Chantell de Jong, a gorgeous OC gal. How are things going in Paul’s new relationship? Read on to find out!

Wetpaint Entertainment recently caught up with Paul — whose new show, Botched, with buddy Terry Dubrow premieres this week on E! — to hear more about how his new girlfriend, a title insurance sales rep, is meshing with his family. After all, Chantell and Paul both have three kiddos!

“[The kids have] met each other, they all enjoy each other, and she’s a great lady,” Paul gushed about Chantell and her family. “Her kids are fantastic. In essence, it’s nice when that all works together.”

Sounds like things are getting off to a great start between these two, but what about when things progress to the next level? Would Paul be willing to ditch the 90210 and move down to Orange County to be closer to his lady (and best bro)?

“No, I really can’t because one, my business is here, and, two, my kids go to school here,” Paul revealed. “Obviously you can’t do that. Adrienne is out here, the kids go to school here, so that would be difficult for me to go down there.”

Perhaps, when and if things advance to another level between Paul and Chantell, she’ll be willing to move her family up to Beverly Hills for a fresh start. We’re definitely rooting for this new pair!

Don’t miss Dr. Nassif and RHOC’s Dr. Terry Dubrow on the new E! series Botched when it premieres on June 24 at 9 p.m. ET. For more information on Paul’s plastic surgery practice, click here and here.
