Damian Lewis has found love again.

More than one year since the passing of his wife Helen McCrory, the Billions star confirmed his relationship with Alison Mosshart while at a summer event for The House of KOKO in London on July 6. At the event, Alison and Damian posed together for a photo in which her arm is cozily wrapped around the actor's shoulder with her face gently leaning on his.

Earlier that same day, Alison's mother Vivian discussed her daughter's relationship. "I don't know how much flak I'm going to get for all of this but of course we are excited for her," she told the Daily Mail. "They have mutual friends. I don't know exactly how they met but I'm fine with it."

She added, "If she's happy, we are happy. I'm yet to meet him but certainly I'd like to."

Over the last few months, Damian and The Kills musician sparked romance rumors after they were spotted together at the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Serpentine Gallery Summer Party.

Alison is the first person Damian has publicly dated since Helen's passing in April 2021, when she died from cancer at age 52.

Damian and Helen shared two kids together: Manon, 15, and Gulliver, 14.

The Homeland star has since honored the late Harry Potter actress in more ways than one, with his most recent tribute being during a poetry reading in January, which was his first stage appearance since Helen's death.

At the London event—which was dedicated to Helen—Damian told a story about John Dennis, an English poet from the 18th century who's been credited with originating the phrase "steal my thunder." He shared onstage, "One person whose thunder absolutely would not be stolen was Helen McCrory. You could try, but it wouldn't work."
