Lea Michele sang a happy tune on Instagram over the weekend.

The Glee Season 6 star shared a romantic picture of herself and Matthew Paetz, going public for the first time with her new boyfriend.

In the artistic image, Michele is holding hands with Paetz, the couple’s shadows on full display and Michele writing as a caption:

"To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides."

This marks first time the 28-year-old star has shared a picture of her boyfriend via social media.

The pair started dating early this summer, with rumors circulating around the Internet about Paetz working as a male gigolo. He met Michele on the music video for “On My Way,” but also appeared to work for a period of time as “Christian” on the website Cowboys4Angels.

Michele, of course, was dating Cory Monteith when that actor tragically died of a heroin overdose in July of 2013.

But she’s clearly doing all she can to move on: despite only dating since June, Michele and Paetz have vacationed together in Capri, Italy, in celebration of Michele's birthday in July.

Moreover, Paetz has moved in to the star's Hollywood home! These two are moving quickly. 

But can you blame Matthew Paetz? We'd wanna sleep next to this bikini beauty every night as well...
