The Nurse Jackie co-stars, who became friends while working on the movie Loosies, were romantically linked for the first time earlier this year (12) after sharing photos of a Paris vacation they took together on Twitter.com.
Actor Facinelli refused to comment on reports suggesting Alexander was his new love after splitting from his wife Jennie Garth at the beginning of 2012, but now she has confirmed the romance.
Alexander tells People magazine, “We’ve been friends forever and had a lot of mutual friends and we reconnected in the middle of the year. It was one of those things where I’d been single for a very long time and he was going through a lot. We sort of bonded.
“It’s very new to me and it’s scary, but it’s also something we don’t want to give up on because I know how it makes me feel in my heart… It makes me feel really good. He’s a good guy with a great family and I couldn’t be any luckier.”
