Is there love in the air?

Christie Brinkley and John Mellencamp were spotted together in New York City Monday after enjoying a dinner date.

The supermodel, 61, was seen leaving the Bowery Hotel in New York, with Mellencamp right behind her. According to Entertainment Tonight, the two spent about an hour together inside before jetting off in Mellencamp’s chauffeured car.

Dressed down in jeans and sneakers, Brinkley was all smiles.

Since her divorce from ex-husband Peter Cook in 2008 (she was also married to Billy Joel), Brinkley has kept herself off the grid when it comes to dating.

“Most of the time, I’ve got my kids with me, so I’m not as prone to meeting people,” Brinkley previously told Prevention in 2010. “And then, you never really know if someone is talking to you because you’re a celebrity. It’s not my number one priority.”

Mellencamp, on the other hand, was previously linked to Meg Ryan, whom he dated for over three years. The couple, who broke off their relationship in August 2014, have remained very close friends.

Brinkley, who has three children – Alexa Ray, 29, Jack, 20, and Sailor, 17 – revealed her secret to moving on after her painful and very public divorce from Cook.

“You’ve got to find a way to keep laughing, eve if it’s black humor, and my friends are very good at that,” she previously told Prevention. “Some people think of happiness as a ma luxury, but it’s a necessity, and you need to make space for it in your life.”
