His lady Kirke (the younger sister of Girls star Jemima Kirke) also stepped out in a pair of tiny stonewash denim shorts. Up top, Kirke, 31, sported a loose-fitting gray tank, which revealed her sleeve tattoos. Clutching a lego set in one hand and holding her tummy with the other, she and Badgley stopped for dinner on a random neighborhood bench.

Kirke, a former singer/songwriter, is currently a professional doula based in Brooklyn.

As exclusively revealed by Us Weekly, both Badgley and Kirke have been an item "for awhile," a source said.

"They have a number of mutual friends. It is a very mature and free relationship," the insider explained. "Domino is a great girl for him, being a musician. Their interests align."
