    Could a blossoming romance be added to Keri Russell's already whirlwind month?

    The actress has gone through a number of challenging and devastating ordeals in the past couple of weeks, but it looks like some good news may be in the air for the beautiful celeb.

    After recently announcing that she and husband of seven years, Shane Deary, have separated, Russell may have found love once again with her Americans costar Matthew Rhys, People magazine reports.

    Rumors that the pair have taken their onscreen romance offscreen began earlier this week when they were seen walking around her Brooklyn Heights neighborhood a few days before Christmas, shopping and looking at furniture on the street.

    "They looked very much like a couple," a source tells the mag. "They were laughing and walking closely together."

    E! News has reached out to their reps for comment.

    The second season of The Americans, a drama about KGB spies living in suburban Washington, D.C., during the Reagan era, premieres in February on FX.

    E! News learned that Russell and her Brooklyn-based contractor husband quietly parted ways several months ago. "They have been separated since early summer," the actress' rep told us. "The separation is amicable and their focus is on their children." Married since Valentine's Day 2007, they are parents to son River, 6, and daughter Willa, 23 months.

    Along with her separation, the star's New York City home was burglarized while she was still in the residence, earlier this month.

    The NYPD confirmed to E! News that they received a call around 3 a.m. from the 37-year-old, who told police she heard noises upstairs and found her living room window and front door open.

    Police arrested two men a few blocks away from Russell's home. The two men had a Mac computer, a necklace, a pair of earrings, and a bag in their possession. The men have been charged with criminal possession of her property and with burglary for a different incident.
