Hot new couple alert! Lucy Hale might have a new man in her life and his name is Ryan Rottman. The Pretty Little Liars star and this actor, who you might remember from his roles on 90210, Billionaire Boys Club, and The House Bunny, fueled romance rumors after they were spotted holding hands. As of right now, neither of them has confirmed the status of their relationship, but it’s clear that they’re more than friends. The photos have definitely caught everyone’s attention mostly because last we checked, Lucy was dating her Life Sentence co-star Riley Smith!

In photos obtained by Just Jared.com, the two can be seen holding hands after stepping out for a coffee on Monday morning, July 2, in California. Though they didn’t show off any other PDA other than hand-holding, it’s enough to suggest that there’s something going on between them. In fact, a source close to them tells Us Weekly that he and Lucy are “hooking up,” but it’s “new.”

Us Weekly also confirmed that Lucy and Riley actually broke up (probably due to busy schedules). “Riley and Lucy are no longer dating,” the source explained. “He is recording an album, promoting his song ‘Hang’ and moving for his new show, Proven Innocent. It just didn’t work out.”

Lucy and Riley were first romantically linked in February after they were spotted kissing on Valentine’s Day. They never displayed their romance online (other than a few IG Stories and group shots) and didn’t ever officially confirm they were more than friends. In other words, they kept their relationship pretty low-key the whole time they were together, which is probably why no one realized that they’d split.

Before Riley, Lucy and Anthony Calabretta were on and off for two years before splitting for good in May 2017. Following the breakup, she told Remix Magazine that she wanted to test the waters before jumping into another serious relationship – and it seems like she’s doing just that! “I’ve sort of jumped from relationship to relationship and I’m just now at the point in my life where I’m allowing myself to date people without getting attached,” she said. “I’m a late bloomer.”

Ryan has also had his fair share of high-profile romances, so dating Lucy wouldn’t be the first time he’s dated an actress. Back in 2011, Ryan was in a relationship with Victoria Justice, but they broke up two years later after they realized they were at different points in their lives. He also dated Brittany Snow for two years after they met on the set of their movie, Walks.

Whatever the future holds for Ryan and Lucy, we think it’s the start to a great summer romance (or more…you never know!).
