Richard Gere is reportedly dating Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi.

The actor, who is said to be in the middle of a divorce from wife Carey Lowell, is believed to have started seeing the mother-of-one recently.

A source told the New York Post's Page Six, "They have been quietly spending some time together. It is all very new and recent, and happened while he has been filming in New York.”

Page Six were the first to reveal in September that Gere, 64, and his former Bond girl wife were splitting after 11 years of marriage. The couple have one son together.

Former model Lakshmi was married to author Salman Rushdie for three years until they divorced in 2007.

Reps for Gere and Lakshmi had no comment.
