Young hearts be free, indeed! Newly divorced Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof stepped out in Beverly Hills on Friday, packing on the PDA with a new man: Sean Stewart, the 32-year-old son of rocker Rod Stewart. Dressed in a little black dress, the blonde, 51-year-old Bravo star and hotel mogul happily posed for photos with flannel-clad Sean, who planted a kiss on her cheek outside eatery Crustacean.

And the pairing is definitely romantic, with a source confirming that Maloof, on the heels of her split Dr. Paul Nassif, is  dating the rock scion. "He's really good with her kids, and she thinks it's fun to be with a younger guy," says the source of Maloof, who finalized her divorce from plastic surgeon Nassif in November; the former spouses share sons Gavin, 9, and twins Colin and Christian, 6.

At the moment, the source says, "It's not serious with Sean, they're having fun right now." Of the age difference? "Paul is also dating a much younger woman," the source teases.

Back in November, Maloof told Us Weekly -- after months of a very public, ugly battle that included mutual allegations of abuse -- of the divorce: "I'm extremely happy [and] looking forward to moving in a positive direction and learning how to co-parent our beautiful boys."
