The Glee star and the aspiring actor, who have been romantically linked for about four months, have reportedly moved in together.
“They are really happy and they make a great team,” a source told People, confirming the news.
Matthew Paetz and Lea Michele are often spotted hiking together near her Los Angeles home
Lea, 28, and her handsome beau Matthew are regularly spotted enjoying hikes around the Californian hills, close to the actress’ Hollywood Hills home. The active duo, who only have eyes for one another, have been pictured cosying up and looking relaxed in each other’s company.
The pair first met on the set of the music video for Lea’s single On My Way in April and started dating soon after. Back in July, Lea and Matthew enjoyed a romantic break together in Capri, Italy where they soaked up the sun along the Amalfi coast.
This is the brunette beauty’s first relationship since the death of her co-star Corey Monteith 14 months ago.
“For a long time, Lea wasn’t close to even thinking about getting into a relationship,” a source said at the time. “Cory’s death was and will continue to be a struggle for her. She’s doing much better now. She’s happy and she’s enjoying her life.”

Lea is back to work filming for season six of Glee, and has been taking to Twitter to share her excitement and joy with her 4.48million fans.
“Day 1 back on the set of #GleeSeason6 #BerryIsBack,” Lea, who plays the lead role of Rachel Berry on the show, captioned a black-and-white photo of herself getting into character.
“Late Friday night on the set of #Glee with our incredibly amazing and hard working crew! Love them all! #GleeSeason6,” she wrote alongside another selfie of the production team in full swing.
This season will be the last of the series following Cory’s death last year.
