Kim and Mitch, 53, reportedly began dating back in 2014 after being friends for nearly 20 years. "[Our relationship came as a] beautiful surprise," the Fifty Shades Darker star previously revealed. "I don't jump from one person to another. I really love to be with who I'm with."

According to Kim's close friend, the two are a perfect match. "She doesn’t act like a huge celebrity. She’s sweet, intelligent, unassuming and very articulate. I can notice a change in Mitch now that he’s been dating her. He’s much calmer, more mature," the source told Closer.
"We want them both to be happy, and they are," the insider added. "It’s uplifting to see them together."

Kim was previously married to makeup artist Ron Snyder from 1980 to 1989 and to actor Alec Baldwin — with whom she has a 21-year-old daughter, Ireland Baldwin — from 1993 until 2002.
"I truly have no regrets. I try to live every day in the present," the actress once said of her past relationships. "The great thing about [growing older] is that you learn from mistakes. You calm down and enjoy [life] more."

As for her messy divorce with Alec? Kim assured the two are on good terms today, though she's disappointed with how much their split hurt their daughter, Ireland, who was just seven years old at the time.

"[Alec and I are] cool now, though. Life goes on," she recently told Net-a-Porter's magazine The Edit. "Divorce is hard on a kid, no matter how you cut it. And ours was very public and nasty."
We're so glad Kim has found love again with Mitch!
