Amid his divorce with Chrishell Stause, fan-favorite Justin Hartley, 43, has moved on with his love life and is now dating actress Sofia Pernas, 30. The duo had co-starred together in 'Young and the Restless' and were confirmed to be dating by Us Weekly as pictures of the happy couple kissing in Los Angeles, popped up. TMZ had posted the photos on their site. Neither of the stars has said anything on the news, yet. The pair have known each other quite a long time and most remember them as Adam Newman and Marisa Sierras from 'Young and the Restless'. Interestingly enough, Hartley's ex Stause also starred in the series as Bethany Bryant.

Here is what we know about Hartley's new lady.

Pernas is a Moroccan-Spanish actress and is now recognized for her role as Lexi Vaziri on CBS's 'Blood & Treasure'. Her other well-acclaimed roles include Sierras, Catalina from 'Jane The Virgin' starring beside Gina Rodriguez and Hannah Rivera from NBC's 'The Brave'. Her debut in the film industry after settling in LA was her 2009 role as Isabella Drake in 'The Immortal Voyage of Captain Drake' and in 2011 she had made it to NCIS's cast as Marine First Lieutenant Gabriela Flores for two episodes.

Pernas also has other talents. Born to a Moroccan mother and Hispanic father, the star is multilingual and can speak four different languages — English, Spanish, Arabic and German, as reported by Us Weekly. She also loves to cook, which she passionately shares on her social media. Her Twitter bio reads, "Consummate lover of good food and humor," while her Instagram account boasts emojis of cupcakes. The actress had recently showcased her cooking skills when she cooked a Moroccan dish on Hallmark Channel's 'Home & Family'. The publication also revealed that the soap star loves to unwind with hobbies that gain her major brownie points. A lover of video games, tennis, piano and reading, the actress is also Team Ravenclaw, affirming her pride in being a Potter Head as proudly posted on her Twitter bio. 

The actress had previously dated Christian Kane from 2011 to 2013 and now seems to be cozying up to her new man Hartley. TMZ had earlier reported that Hartley had "planted a wet one on a mystery woman" this past Thursday as she had dropped him at the Southern California Orthopedic Institute and later picked him up as well. The site later confirmed that the 'This Is Us' star is dating his former 'Y&R' co-star, Pernas.
