There's a new romance flourishing on the Upper East Side!
Gossip Girl alum Jessica Szohr is dating Scotty McKnight, E! News confirms. They started dating a few months ago after meeting through friends, a source tells us. Although it has only been a couple of months, things have been going really well for the couple!
"They are very cute together and they're having lots of fun," the insider says.
The former New York Jets wide receiver and the Two Night Stand actress recently showed off their love in a couple of pictures on Instagram from the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. The two held hands while walking through Don Julio's Neon Carnival, and McKnight made sure to document their fun time together with multiple collages he posted on Instagram.
Several pics include a large group of friends, but Szohr makes an appearance in all of them! "Great times with even greater people. Old friends and new. Peace out Coachilla," he captioned one collage.
In honor of the actress' birthday a couple of weeks ago, the NFL free agent created another collage of three pics, making sure to include two adorable ones of them riding a roller coaster and enjoying a sunset on the beach. "Happy birthday to this girl @itsmejessicaszohr -- beautiful inside and out," he wrote.
McKnight might have a type! He seems to be into actresses because prior to linking up with Szohr he was connected to Hayden Panettierefrom June 2011 to December 2012. She was on a break now-fiancé Wladimir Klitschko, whom she has since had a daughter with. Szohr, on the other hand, dated co-star Ed Westwick aka Chuck Bass.
Congrats to the happy couple!
