Like the equally-private celeb couple Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn, Emma Watson and Chord Overstreet have remained mum on their courtship but recently let fans catch a glimpse of them together. The Beauty and the Beast star and the former Glee standout stepped out in Los Angeles on Thursday. Paparazzi captured them holding hands, which they did not attempt to hide.

The photos confirm what Page Six‘s sources said on Friday: that Watson and Overstreet are indeed dating after being seen out together twice. A source told People that while the pairing is a little odd, it works.
“They have been dating for a little bit now, but it’s still pretty new. They met through friends. They might seem like an odd match but they actually have very similar personalities.”
Watson dated William “Mack” Knight, a tech entrepreneur, before. Overstreet was with actress Brooke Butler. Watson previously said that she planned to generally keep her love life private. “I want to be consistent,” Watson explained to Vanity Fair last February, while she and Knight were still together. “I can’t talk about my boyfriend in an interview and then expect people not to take paparazzi pictures of me walking around outside my home. You can’t have it both ways.”
