Facebook’s chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg has a new man in her life, according to a new report.

Almost a year after losing her husband, Sandberg is dating billionaire Bobby Kotick, according to the New York Post‘s Page Six. The report adds that while the two have been friendly for some time, they’ve only recently taken their friendship to the next level.

Sandberg, 46, and Kotick, 53, reportedly made public appearances together over the weekend at multiple Oscar’s events, attending both Vanity Fair’s party and a dinner at Creative Artist Agency’s Bryan Lourd’s house.

While no pictures of the couple together surfaced, Kotick was spotted in the background of a picture Sandberg took with film producer Brian Grazer.

The Facebook executive lost her husband, SurveyMonkey CEO Dave Goldberg, in May 2015 from heart-related causes. He was 47.

Kotick is the president and CEO of Activision Blizzard, a video game company that publishes blockbuster franchises Call of Duty, World of Warcraft and Guitar Hero.
