Actor Jamie Kennedy has confirmed that he's dating his Ghost Whisperer co-star Jennifer Love Hewitt -- three months after she called off her engagement.

The couple prompted reports that its on-set friendship had blossomed into a romance behind the scenes when Kennedy joined Hewitt to celebrate her 30th birthday last month.

Kennedy confirmed the news on Ryan Seacrest's radio show on Friday, comparing their "intense connection" to characters in hit vampire franchise Twilight.

He told Seacrest: "Yes, we are dating. Wow, I've never said that. We're more than dating... we're more than in love. We have an intense connection. She's my Bella. I don't want to bite her neck, but I want her to live... I'm in love, and I don't care!"

And the actor insists the whirlwind romance was unexpected, adding: "I thought something would happen in my 40s. Hollywood makes us on our own train, and it's like I have a co-conductor now."

Hewitt split from fiancé Ross McCall in December after three years together.
