The actress’ relationship with film executive Young turned nasty after their 2008 split and the former couple became embroiled in a bitter legal battle over spousal support and the division of assets.
The divorce was finalised earlier this month (Apr10), with Walsh agreeing to hand over half of her TV earnings for shows filmed during the 14 months they were man and wife – and she’s keen to put the failed marriage firmly behind her by moving in with boyfriend Neil Andrea, an underwater-camera operator.
The loved-up pair was snapped viewing a number of properties together in Malibu on 6 April (10) after a whirlwind romance.
A source tells America’s Star magazine, “She’s thrilled that he wants them to get their own place, though they’ve been dating only about eight months.
“Kate feels that he really gets her. She wants to spend the rest of her life with him.”
