Jessica Lowndes has a new man in her life and she doesn’t want to hide it anymore. The 27-year-old former 90210 star revealed in a series of Instagram posts over the weekend that her and Saturday Night Live alum Jon Lovitz, 58, have been ‘secretly’ dating and are now engaged. Their relationship came as a surprise to many considering there’s a 31-year age gap between the two.
Lowndes first teased hints of a relationship with an older man when she posted an Instagram picture on Friday of a man’s hands on her legs while she was driving with the text, “There’s a new man in my life…,” and then captioned the photo with, “his hands are wise and tell a thousand stories…#smitten #hatersgonnahate.” She alluded again to their drastic age difference when she followed up with another photo of two ice cream bowls and the caption, “You say sugar daddy but I say ice cream daddy! Lol.”
Fans were so shocked to hear about this new relationship they questioned whether her social media had been hacked, but she quickly fought off the haters with a video of herself saying, “No, I haven’t been hacked. I’m just really excited to be able to finally share this secret with you guys,” and then posted yet another photo of an engagement ring. Lovitz broke his silence on the matter on Sunday by sharing a photo of the new couple on his Twitter page with the caption, “Easter with my bunny, @jessicalowndes!!!”
Lowndes was previously linked romantically to Scottish rugby player Thom Evans while Lovitz was once involved with former model Janice Dickinson.
