Dylan Penn clearly has a thing for guys who star in vampire-related projects, as she is finally going public with her relationship with Vampire Diaries hottie Steven R. McQueen.

Dylan, 22, and Steven, 25, have been rumored to be dating for some time, but now they have been spotted kissing at a public event for the first time when the two puckered up at her dad Sean Penn's charity gala on January 11, according to Us Weekly. 

The two posed for photographs at the event together. Later, an onlooker overheard Dylan tell Steven that her feet hurt.

"Oh, really?" Steven asked her as he picked her up in his arms and then kissed her on the lips before carrying her out of the gala. Too cute!

A source says that their relationship is going strong. "They met awhile back, they started dating pretty quickly, lots of attraction there," reveals the insider. "Dylan is a fun chick  whatever she had with Pattinson was very brief, if at all."

This wasn't Steven's first time meeting Dylan's pops, Sean. "Steven had met Sean before the event last night," says the source. "[Sean] loves his daughter, really whatever makes her happy is fine with him."

As you may recall, Dylan was rumored to have briefly dated Twilight star Robert Pattinson earlier this year. 

Do you think Steven and Dylan are a good match, or do you not see this lasting?
