It's official! Lea Michele has a new man and she's now showing him off to the world.

The "Glee" star has been dating model Matthew Paetz since they met six months ago, but neither has publicly confirmed the relationship. On Wednesday, though, the couple finally went public at the amfAR L.A. Inspiration Gala in Hollywood, Calif.

While Michele walked the event's red carpet alone, the new couple was photographed cuddling at their table and talking to "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy during the event. Wearing a low-cut Versace dress, Lea happily showed her affection for her man, resting her hand on his lap as he wrapped his arm around her.

Over the last six months, Lea and Matthew have been spotted kissing, traveling and hiking together.

Her desire to keep the relationship close to her vest is understandable considering the loss she suffered last year when her then-boyfriend and "Glee" co-star Cory Monteith died of a heroin and alcohol overdose.

Last year on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show," she said she knew Cory would want her to move on: "He would want me to live my life."

Wednesday's event was clearly a happy evening for Lea, who tweeted, "What a special evening being a part of #amfAR last night."
