Courteney Cox has apparently found new love after all.

The former Friends star is rumored to be dating her Cougar Town costar Brian Van Holt, who plays her ex-husband on the hit TBS series.

The two were first reported to be seeing one another back in 2010 after E! News confirmed that the duo were inseparable during a holiday party.

The actors stuck by each other's sides during the TV holiday bash, which took place on a Culver City soundstage, and spent over three hours together.

And now it appears the two are spending more time together outside of work.

Cox and Van Holt were spotted on a dinner date at West Hollywood's Chi Lin restaurant recently, E! News has learned..

Us Magazine reports that "they've been going out for about six months" and that the two "acted like boyfriend and girlfriend" during their dinner outing.

Cox could be going more public with her new relationship now that her divorce from David Arquette has been finalized. Back in May, the couple officially ended their 12-year union.

The former spouses, who are parents to daughter Coco, announced their separation in October 2010. It wasn't until June 2012 that they both filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split. They also asked the court to award them both joint legal and physical custody of their little girl.

But there are no hard feelings between these two. Courteney gushed to Ellen DeGeneres earlier this year about David, saying, "I mean…It's hard. I don't recommend divorce in general, but you know, he is my best friend and we've both grown and changed and I think we both appreciate each other more. I hope he does. I do." 

Arquette did, however, spill the beans on Van Holt and his ex-wife in 2010 to Howard Stern on his radio show. He explained that he confronted Cox about Van Holt but that she invariably denied having an affair.

"I do believe her," he told Stern. "I truly don't think she ever had an affair." He did add that, if anything, the two may have formed an "emotional" bond.

Arquette is currently dating Christina McLarty. The two broke up briefly in 2012 but have since rekindled their romance.

It looks like both parties are happily moving on!
