Love is in the air for Lea Michele!
The "Glee" star, 28, made her social media debut with boyfriend Matthew Paetz, 29, on Instagram on Sunday. The pic may have only been of their shadows holding hands, but it's the caption that has everyone buzzing.
The post marks a big step for Michele, not just for the "L-word" but because the young starlet has remained relatively mum about her love life since the death of her previous boyfriend and "Glee" co-star, Cory Monteith.
Monteith overdosed on alcohol and heroin in July 2013 at 31 years old.
It's great to see the Broadway star-turned-Hollywood A-lister find happiness again after her tragic loss.
Although she just began dating Paetz in June, the pair has already been spotted vacationing together in Capri, Italy, and just last month, Paetz moved into Michele's Hollywood home, according to Us Weekly.
Michele wasn't the only one who shared a sappy post this year. In a less formal way, Paetz also revealed his adoration for Michele in a tweet. The model posted an article in June about finding the "right person" who will never make you settle.
Swoon. It seems like things for these two can only get better.
