It takes two to tango.
Burke, 29, and Hopkins, 43, have crossed paths several times in recent years. But it wasn’t until late last year that the two reconnected.
“They have been seeing each other since around New Year’s,” the source says. “They are having fun. He’s a really solid guy.”
Hopkins and Burke “met in social circles because they both were on ABC shows,” the source adds. “They are enjoying each other’s company. They make a nice couple.”
Hopkins’s show, Cougar Town, has since moved to TBS. Burke, a two-time DWTS champ, will likely rejoin the show for its 18th season, which kicks off on March 17.
