AceShowbiz - Chris Rock and Lake Bell are reportedly an item. The former star of "Saturday Night Live" and the "Bless This Mess" actress allegedly have been dating for several months amid romance rumors.
A source confirmed that the comedian and the 43-year-old actress have been casually dating for "a couple months." The source further noted that though the funnyman is on tour and preparing a stand-up special, he's also focused on making their relationship work.
"It's a good sign when he's making time for someone while on tour," the informant told Entertainment Tonight. "He's hyper focused on his tour and an upcoming comedy special, so I know he really likes her since he's making seeing her a priority."
A separate source doubled down on reports that Rock and Bell are an item, telling Us Weekly, "[Rock] has been in a really good mood. He's dating and spending his downtime with Lake Bell."
The comedian and the "No Escape" actress "both just laugh a lot when they're together," the insider further shared, before noting, "They have similar personalities."
Rock was first linked to Bell when the pair were spotted at a St. Louis Cardinals baseball game in Missouri on June 13. The twosome watched the sporting event from a box seat in the stadium and stood together from time to time.
Rock continued to fuel romance rumors over the 4th of July weekend when he and Bell were photographed having a fancy dinner at Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica, California. "The Secret Life of Pets 2" actress wore a black crop top and high-waisted jeans during the July 2 outing, while the comic donned an all-white ensemble and brown dress shoes.
An eyewitness claimed that the former "Everybody Hates Chris" star and Bell were holding hands as they walked out of the upscale Italian restaurant but immediately let go of each other when they saw the photographers.
Later on July 6, the pair were caught taking a romantic stroll on a beach. They were photographed walking past Shutters On The Beach hotel while calmly taking in the beautiful ocean views. They're seen in great spirits though they didn't show any PDA.
