Casey Anthony, who was famously acquitted after being accused of killing her two-year-old daughter Caylee in 2011, is reportedly dating someone new nearly seven years after her acquittal, according to PEOPLE. The news outlet has also quoted sources as saying that, even though Anthony did not want any children before, she has now changed her mind. 

"If I am blessed enough to have another child — if I’d be dumb enough to bring another kid into this world knowing that there’d be a potential that some little snot-nosed kid would then say something mean to my kid — I don’t think I could live with that," Casey had said in an interview years ago. She now seems to have softened her stance on the subject.



 

Casey, who moved to South Florida after the much-publicized murder case, began working as a researcher with one of the private investigators who worked on her case, living a low-key life. According to the news outlet's source, she had previously gone on "a handful of dates" with different guys but there was one particular man who caught her attention.

The man is reportedly in his 30s and works a professional job and they have been seeing each other for nearly three months. "She’s had trouble finding guys who are interested in her. But he’s a really special guy who can overlook her past," the source said.

Casey Anthony, after a series of lengthy trials, was found not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, and aggravated manslaughter of a child. However, she was found guilty of four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer. With her due term served, she was released on July 17, 2011, and faced public outrage and media trials.

After her controversial acquittal, a spokesperson of Florida Department of Corrections described her as "one of the most hated women in America."

Reports state that 10 years after the death of her daughter, Casey Anthony's new boyfriend is aware of her past and is still interested in her. 

"He is giving her a clean slate. She’s now in her 30s. She’s a different person than she was when she was an emotionally-stunted 21-year-old. He sees what she could be," the source told PEOPLE, adding that he does not want to come in public eye for now.
