Friends Confirm Elin Nordegren-Jamie Dingman Relationship: "It's Fun, She's Happy"

by at . Comments

Recent reports have been confirmed by a friend close to Elin Nordegren: She's got a new boyfriend in Jamie Dingman, it's fun, and she's happy!

After her divorce from Tiger Woods, Elin instantly became one of the most eligible and desirable women on Earth ... but also sought to lay low.

It wasn't until a year and a half later that she was ready to move on and was spotted kissing and hugging Jamie Dingman in Stockholm, Sweden:

A source confirmed to People that the two are an item, but still "at the beginning of dating, where you don't know where it's going to go."

Elin met Jamie, a financier, at a charity dinner in Florida benefiting Queen Silvia of Sweden's World Childhood Foundation on April 2.

Despite rumors to the contrary, such as Elin dating a student in Florida last summer, this is Nordegren's first post-split relationship:

"It's fun and she's happy," adds a second Elin friend.

Looks like Jamie's strange ties to Rachel Uchitel - which reportedly blindsided Elin - haven't put a damper on things. At least not yet.

Tiger, who from all accounts we've read is currently single, finalized his divorce from Elin last year, giving her at least $100 million.

They have two children, Sam, 4, and Charlie, 2.

If things don't work out, E, just give us a call. No one on our staff has done Rachel Uchitel. Well, probably. She does get around ...
