Jennifer Carpenter is moving on. The Dexter actress stepped out to breakfast with musician boyfriend Seth Avett of the Avett Brothers in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Oct. 8, looking cozy with her new beau as the two strolled through a parking lot.

The pair kept their outfits casual for their morning jaunt, with Carpenter, 33, wearing a simple dark T-shirt and skinny jeans and Avett, 32, in a light blue shirt, jeans, and matching Converse sneakers. The folk singer also sported a noticeably fuller beard. The pair kept their arms wrapped around each other's waists during their outing.

Us Weekly first reported that the longtime friends' relationship had turned romantic back in June, though the pair kept mum on their budding romance.

"Jennifer met Seth about four years ago at a concert," an insider told Us at the time. "She loves music and has always been a big supporter of the band. The relationship developed over the past few months."

Not that the transition has been a completely smooth one, by any means.

In September, Carpenter teared up onstage during the PaleyFest panel for Dexter when asked about what it was like to continue to work with Michael C. Hall in a professional capacity.

"Our marriage didn't look like anyone else's, and our divorce didn't either, so…I said it before, just because the marriage ended doesn't mean the love did," she said, her voice breaking. "I'm crying. It's an awkward thing to talk about your personal life in front of a bunch of strangers, but there's nothing but love and respect [between us]. Nothing."
