Peter Facinelli's Most Romantic Gesture Is "Too Graphic" to Share, Says Girlfriend Jaimie Alexander
TMI! Peter Facinelli and girlfriend Jaimie Alexander put their love on display at the 2013 GQ Gentlemen's Ball in New York City on Wednesday, Oct. 23. The couple of nearly one year showed lots of PDA on the red carpet, and may have shared a bit too much while chatting with reporters about their love life.
An eyewitness tells Us Weekly that the 39-year-old Twilight actor and 29-year-old actress were "super lovey-dovey" while posing for photographers and stole a few kisses. Alexander, who costarred with Facinelli on Showtime's Nurse Jackie and in the 2012 film Loosies, patiently waited off to the side for her boyfriend to finish red carpet interviews. But when one reporter asked Facinelli to share the most romantic thing he's done for his girlfriend recently, he asked her to weigh in.
After playfully sticking out her tongue, Alexander quipped, "I think that's too graphic, baby." Thinking of a more acceptable response, she shared, "You're always holding the door for me."
Facinelli began dating Alexander about eight months after he filed for divorce from Jennie Garth, his wife of 11 years. He and his ex-wife, 41, share three daughters: Luca, 16, Lola, 10, and Fiona, 7.
During the GQ Gentlemen's Ball event at the IAC Building, the proud father also shared his girls' latest milestones with Us. "My oldest just turned 16, so she's getting her driver's license soon. She doesn't have it yet," he shared. "My middle one is turning 11, so that's pretty big. And the youngest one just turned 7. She's doing her first musical play at school. She's got the lead part playing Jasmine in Aladdin."
Garth is now dating businessman Michael Shimbo, the CEO for a San Francisco-based company called Planes, Trains and Automobiles. During an Oct. 21 interview with Bethenny Frankel on her talk show Bethenny, Garth opened up about her difficult road back to romance after divorce. "It's fun, and it's awful all at the same time," she said of dating. "It's like a weird type of torture. But it can be fun."
