“They had a connection early on in the show,” a source tells Us Weekly, “but the romance developed recently. They’re still pretty guarded about it.”
Apparently the two got even closer after Emily’s character was killed off during the season 5 mid-season finale in 2014. Since then, they’ve stayed in touch — and he’s even supported her at many of the singer-songwriter’s concerts.
Norman — who’s dad to 15-year-old son Mingus from his previous relationship with model Helena Christensen — was most recently spotted at her May 21 show in Decatur, Ga.

Shortly after her character’s shocking death on the hit AMC series, Norman opened up about the loss to Entertainment Weekly.

Emily Kinney, you are one very lucky girl. Like for real:
