Kristin Chenoweth and former Bachelor contestant Jake Pavelka have made their relationship official after weeks of dating.
The 44-year-old actress has reportedly been seeing the 34-year-old reality television star for some time now, but just confirmed to People that they are indeed a couple.
“We have been spending a little time together,” Chenoweth said of her budding relationship with Pavelka, 34.
The pair reportedly met at an event in October and started dating shortly afterward.
Kristin Chenoweth said after suffering a devastating head injury on the set of The Good Wife she took a new approach toward life.
“I’ve realized life is short,” Chenoweth said. “I want to do things that make me happy.”
Chenoweth was hit in the head when a piece of equipment fell on the set of the show. She told Us Weekly that the incident would keep her out for several weeks, and Chenoweth then spent most of the rest of the summer recovering after the early July accident.
“A lot of people know that I got hurt in July,” she said. “I am doing so much better but I think it slowed me down and I’ve realized life is short. I want to do things that make me happy.”
Jake Pavelka comes to the relationship with Kristin Chenoweth with his own baggage. In 2010 he chose to propose to Vienna Girardi on the show, but went through a nasty and public breakup shortly after it ended. He later went on to appear on Dancing with the Stars and Bachelor Pad.
