Lea Michele has introduced her boyfriend to her friends.

The 'Glee' actress began dating her new beau Matthew Paetz over a month ago and couldn't wait to show him off to her closest pals at a private house party in Beverly Hills, California, on Wednesday night (09.07.14).

A source told E! News: ''Lea was leading the way and she couldn't wait to introduce him to friends. They were talking to people about summer plans and looked like they were totally crazy for one another.

''They look so cute together and so into one another. She clearly really likes him.''

The 27-year-old star, who was left devastated when her boyfriend Cory Monteith died of a drugs overdose last year, met Matthew on the set of her 'On My Way' music video a few months ago and the hunk is doing everything in his power to make her happy and support her.

A source said previously: ''They have a very honest and open type of relationship. They share everything and support each other in any way possible.''

Meanwhile, the duo's budding romance was rocked last month following reports Matthew was a gigolo, who, until recently, offered his companionship to lonely women through online service Cowboys4Angels.

However, the brunette beauty reportedly confronted him over the rumours and he has since insisted he is a certified life coach, dating expert and massage therapist.
