The tabloid has posted photos of Segel and Williams on March 24, walking through Brooklyn and, the following day, playing with Williams' six-year old daughter, Matilda.

The unexpected tandem reportedly met through the actress' close friend, Cougar Town star Busy Phillips. They were friends for awhile prior to ratcheting up the relationship to a romantic level.

"She hasn't been this happy in a long time," says an insider, who adds that the bi-coastal couple is "trying to make [the distance] work."
