Lucky Lea! Lea Michele's new man isn't afraid to strip down for the cameras. Matthew Paetz, recently revealed as the Glee star's new fling, bared his toned body while wearing a skimpy speedo in a past photo shoot.

Paetz—who reportedly has worked as a male escort—took a dip for the photos, showing off his killer abs and broad shoulders. Skipping more modest swimming trunks, the dating and lifestyle coach instead opted for a tiny black speedo as he was snapped in a pool.

As previously reported, the pair first met on the set of Michele's music video for "On My Way" back in April.

"She had just come from Coachella where she was missing Cory incredibly," a source told Us Weekly. "[The video shoot] was a big party and a really therapeutic moment for her." (According to TMZ, Paetz used to work as a gigolo for the site Cowboys4Angels under the alias Christian. The site is featured on Showtime's reality TV series Gigolos.)

Paetz is the first man the Brunette Ambition author, 27, has dated since the tragic death of her boyfriend and Glee costar Cory Monteith last July.
