Everything appears to be rosy between Kristin Chenoweth and her new beau Jake Pavelka.
“We have been spending a little time together,” Chenoweth tells PEOPLE of her dates with the former Bachelor star.
The actress, 44, met her new man, 34, at an event in October and it was not long before the couple was spotted dining together in West Hollywood as well as more recently at a cafe near Pavelka’s home in Texas.
