Lake Bell and Chris Rock are a couple.

The comedian, 57, and the actress, 43, reportedly spent time together over the Fourth of July weekend and have been informally dating for a few months, according to the source. The comic is dedicated to maintaining the connection despite his hectic schedule, which also involves a tour and the preparation for a stand-up special.

When he makes time for someone while on tour, the insider notes, “it’s a positive sign.” I can tell he genuinely likes her because he’s prioritizing visiting her over his tour and upcoming comedy special.

Since Will Smith smacked Rock during the Academy Awards in March, all eyes have been on him. Even so, the former cast member of Saturday Night Live is continuing to live his life despite all the attention. Rock “wasn’t going to let it effect how he lives his life, if he wants to do something or go somewhere with someone, he would,” the person continues.

“Chris is in a pretty good mind space right now; he’s happy and enjoying life,” the source continues.

Bell and Rock attracted attention when they were sighted out and about over the Fourth of July holiday. The couple had supper on Friday at Santa Monica, California’s Giorgio Baldi, a popular restaurant for celebrities.

The couple was spotted out together once more on Sunday. Rock and Bell can be seen enjoying a laid-back breakfast at Coast in Santa Monica in a TMZ photo. These adventures over the weekend follow Rock and Bell’s observation of a St. Louis Cardinals baseball game from the box seats on June 13.
