He's been single for quite some time since his divorce, but it looks like our faithful Bachelor host Chris Harrison is finally off the market! According to E! Online, it's official --  Chris Harrison is dating Lauren Zima, a reporter for Entertainment Tonight who has covered Bachelor Nation inside and out for a long time now. And it seems like they're a match made in heaven. 

  • Over the weekend, they made their couple debut on Instagram -- and on the red carpet at a SAG Awards party.

    ET was the first to confirm the news, and E! followed it up with some very interesting details about this new pairing.

    "Chris had his hand on Lauren's back as they waited at the bar," a witness told the site. "They looked very couple-y and Chris was whispering in Lauren's ear."

    Aww!

    As much as we would have loved for Chris to be the Bachelor someday, we have to admit that we are thrilled for him. With Lauren being such a Bach expert already, we know that she and Chris probably have plenty to talk about, plus she understands the demands of the gig. Lauren is always interviewing celebs on the red carpet, so she's part of Chris's world too and has a pretty impressive career going herself.

  • We honestly should have caught on that they were dating earlier after this post from Lauren.

    In her caption, she joked that Colton and Chris were the "two most important men" in her life, and now we know that she was a little bit serious when she said that. Who would have guessed?!

  • It looks like they're already super happy together, and we're happy for them.

    With how Chris dedicates his life to helping other people find love, it's time for him to have his own happily ever after. Do you think this will be the most dramatic relationship in Bachelor history? Guess we'll find out!
