“They’re very happy,” a source close to the Friday Night Lights actress explains. “They’ve got a lot in common and have major chemistry.”

That was clear to an eyewitness who saw the pair walking hand in hand on March 7 in Paris, where they’ve been working.

“They were hugging and kissing,” the eyewitness recalls, adding that it seemed like the couple had just come from a date at the Louvre because Minka, 36, was carrying a bag with the museum’s logo on it.

Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse, 35, is still legally married to his wife of four years, Aryn Drake-Lee, with whom he has two kids — but he filed for divorce on April 11, and he and his ex “are in mediation.”

They’ve reportedly been separated for more than a year.
