The New Year brought with it a new romance for Meg Ryan.
The Proof of Life actress has been spotted hand-in-hand with US rock singer-songwriter John Mellencamp.
The couple have been seen food shopping in New York and also spending time together on Martha's Vineyard, signalling the start of a blossoming relationship.
An observer during the pair's visit to New York's Gourmet Garage told People magazine they seemed happy and at ease, adding: "She (Meg) usually comes in by herself or with her daughter.
"I thought that was her husband because they seemed so comfortable and familiar with each other, just like an old married couple."
Meg, 49, and John, 59, began dating about seven weeks ago, a source told the publication.
John announced the split from his wife of 18 years, Elaine, at the end of December, but the insider said they had been separated for some time before that.
The No Better Than This singer has been married three times and is a father to five children.
Meg was famously married to Dennis Quaid until 2001 when they split after ten years of marriage.
They have a son together, Jack Henry, now 18, and Meg - who dated Russell Crowe for a few months in 2000 - also has a daughter, Daisy True, six, who she adopted from China in 2006.
