Four months after rumours began circulating that Alexa Chung and Alexander Skarsgard were dating, the pair have confirmed their romance with a PDA-packed stroll around New York City's Prospect Park. The two held hands as they went public with their love, as they soaked up the sunshine in the Big Apple.

Wearing high-waist jeans and an off-the-shoulder white gypsy top, Alexa kept the sunshine at bay with a stylish pair of cat's eye sunglasses.

Swedish actor Alexander, the star of Sundance hit The Diary of a Teenage Girl wore a simple blue T-shirt and jeans, while he carried his baseball cap.

The pair later cuddled up to each other as they dozed on the grass, before Alexa posed for photographs against a backdrop of gorgeous flowers.

Their relationship comes after Alexa opened up to Marie Claire magazine about how she is a "nightmare" to date.

"I don’t like being told what to do. And I don’t want to be penned in. I don’t want to feel I have to be anywhere ... I am quite restless. It makes me a nightmare to date, I think," she said.

Alexa also shared a picture of their date on Instagram, but made no mention of the fact that Alexander was her photographer, writing: "O rose, thou art sick!"

News of their romance began after they were spotted getting cosy in a New York café in February. Alexa and Alexander were seen at the Bluebell Coffee shop by comedienne Hayley Sacks, who immediately took to Instagram to share news of her sighting.

Posting a picture of 31-year-old Alexa buying breakfast for two, she wrote, "I try not to post blurry pictures on Instagram BUT I am in the middle of breaking an important celebrity news story and so rules don't really apply.

"That is Alexa Chung! I just saw her with Alexander Skarsgard from True Blood. There were eating avocado toast and rubbing each other's lower backs.

"No one know they are dating yet except ME and now you. I feel like I have to tell you bc Brian Williams never will. Okay signing off now. Go tell ten people or you will have bad luck forever."
