It’s official — well, kind of! Hilary Duff finally confirmed she’s indeed dating her personal trainer, Jason Walsh, during an appearance on FOX 5’s Good Day New York on Monday, September 26. Watch what she said in the clip above!
After discussing season 3 of the star’s hit show Younger, FOX 5’s Rosanna Scotto asked Duff about her hand-holding outing with Walsh on Saturday.
“The last time you were here you were talking about going on Tinder. … And then I see pictures of you and some guy named Jason … have we found a little like in our life?” Scotto asked Duff, who began to blush.
“We have [found a little ‘like’ with each other]. We’ve known each other for a really long time and he’s a great guy and we have a lot of fun together,” Duff said. “It’s nice to have that excitement in my life.”
When asked if she was “back in a relationship,” Duff giggled nervously while shrugging her shoulders, implying yes.
Although the Lizzie McGuire alum, 28, has kept mum about her love life, she stepped out with Walsh on full display on Saturday. The pair were spotted holding hands while out for a stroll in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood.
“Jason and Hilary are so cute together!” a source tells Us Weekly. “They were friends and really not dating for a long time, but now they are and it’s really cute. He is really good for her and treats her well.”
In August 2015 the pair flirted up a storm at the opening of Walsh’s gym, Rise Nation, and in March they were spotted grabbing dinner together at Hollywood hot spot Petit Trois.
“Hillary is really into him,” another source previously told Us. “He is sweet to her and is so hot. She’s really happy.”
Their romance comes after Duff finalized her divorce from ex-husband Mike Comrie this past February, with whom she shares son Luca, 4.
Younger season 3 premieres on TV Land on Wednesday, September 28, at 10 p.m. ET.
