The actress and Ely, who is the CEO of SOLr Energy Consulting, were spotted packing on the PDA as they cuddled in the ocean and stole kisses while lounging on the beach. Hilary’s new romance comes three months after she called it quits with musician Matthew Koma.

The star has been on the hunt for lasting love since splitting from her husband Mike Comrie in 2014. “I never think being single sucks until I go out in L.A. with my girlfriends and the options are terrible. I really attract the old men!" she once told E! News. Based on her recent romantic adventures, it appears she won’t be forced to navigate the single life anytime soon!
