The two met through mutual friends and on Saturday (16May15) the couple attended a New York Rangers game at Madison Square Garden, where Wilson was photographed holding his hand. She later posted a picture of herself with Gooch, Jr. on following the game.

He also attended the premiere of her new movie Pitch Perfect 2.

A source tells Us Weekly magazine, "They get along really well, they respect each other's work.

"She's been too busy to date for awhile, they've been texting often and they've been spending some time together in L.A. and New York."

The romance will put a smile on Wilson's face following drama Down Under relating to a report in her native Australia, suggesting the Bridesmaids star has been lying about her name and age for years.
