Joe Manganiello made a big step forward in his relationship with new girlfriend Caitlin O’Connor, 33. on Tuesday.
The True Blood star let the 33-year-old hold his beloved Chihuahua named Bubbles, whom he used to co-parent with his former wife Sofia Vergara, 51.
They were bundled up in rain gear to venture out for a walk during the storm that has been flooding Los Angeles.
The Winning Time actress wore black sweatpants with and oversized black jacket and grey crop top. She added a grey beanie over her blonde hair.
The Magic Mike star, 47, was decked out in green shorts, a grey and white tie-dyed hoodie and a grey ball cap.
The new couple have been dating for a few months after meeting at the wrap party for her Los Angeles Lakers-centered series Winning Time.

The photogenic pair actually met in a hot tub where they struck up a conversation and hit it off during the wrap party.
Joe has moved on from his seven-year marriage to Vergara after spitting reportedly due to the fact that he decided he wanted children and the Modern Family alum was not on the same page.
‘My marriage broke up because my husband was younger; he wanted to have kids and I didn’t want to be an old mom,’ she said in an interview with the Spanish language publication El Pais.
She explained to the outlet, ‘I feel it’s not fair to the baby. I respect whoever does it, but that’s not for me anymore.’
Mentioning her son Manolo from her first marriage to high school sweetheart Joe Gonzalez, she noted, ‘I had a son at 19, who is now 32, and I’m ready to be a grandmother, not a mother. So, if love comes along, he has to come with [his own] children.’
’I’m almost in menopause; it’s the natural way of things,’ she stated candidly.
As far as dating goes, the Colombian beauty isn’t on any of the dating apps but she is ‘open to having fun.’
‘I’m bad with technology, so I’m sure I would click on the wrong ones,’ she explained ‘I’m open to having fun and meeting people.
‘It’s only been six months,’ she said, referring to her separation from ex-husband Manganiello.
Lately, the America’s Got Talent judge has been cozying up to orthopedic surgeon Justin Saliman.
And when it comes to wedding bells, Sofia admitted: ‘I don’t need a husband. I want one. It doesn’t even have to be a husband. A partner.’
It seems her blossoming romance with her new beau could be just that.
In November 2023, a source exclusively told DailyMail.com that Vergara is already ‘falling in love’ with the orthopedic surgeon.
