"They have been dating for a few weeks and it's going well!" the insider tells Us. Though their relationship just recently turned romantic, it turns out the two have known each other for quite some time. "They met almost four years ago at a party, and then recently reconnected," the source says.
Hopkins, 43, has previously been linked to his "Cougar Town" co-star Courteney Cox's BFF Jennifer Aniston, whom he casually dated back in 2010. (Close pals Hopkins and Cox, 49, dodged rumors of their own romance after vacationing together in St. Barts earlier that same year.) When he's not acting, the hunky 6'3'' actor prefers to stay active and healthy: "Twice a year, I do a triathlon," he told Conan O'Brien last month.
Indeed, his new lady seems to like men with athletic lifestyles! Burke, 29, dated NHL player Joffrey Lupul back in 2012, and prior to that, she was linked to former football player Chad Ochocinco. (Though Burke never confirmed a relationship with her DWTS Season 10 partner, the choreographer reportedly received a lavish diamond ring from Ochocinco during their fling.)
"He's a really nice guy," the source tells Us of Hopkins. "And they seem like a good match."
