His romance with mom of two Kim Hersov is "developing slowly," a pal says

Jude Law has a new girlfriend, PEOPLE has confirmed.

The actor is dating Kim Hersov, an American-born mother of two who works in London as the editor-at-large for Britain’s Harper’s Bazaar – and the two have now jetted off to India for a vacation together.

“They met a couple of months ago and the relationship has been developing slowly,” a friend of the actor tells PEOPLE.

The pair – he with a camera and she with a sun hat – were spotted visiting an historic fort in Rajasthan, India, according to Britain’s The Sun newspaper.

Hersov, who hails from San Francisco and previously worked for Vogue in New York City, has been described by Britain’s The Times as “extremely glamorous” and by The Sunday Times as “ultra-chic.” “She’s very well established in the fashion world,” says one industry insider who has worked with Hersov.

Hersov, who’s divorced and whose children are 7 and 10, has lived in Britain for 14 years and is a self-confessed denim demon, according to an interview she gave to The Guardian in 2005: “I’m a jeans girl, I wear them day and night.” (True to style, Hersov was spotted wearing a pair in India.)

Britain’s News of the World first reported in late February that the two had been sharing romantic dinners, and The Sun says she has an uncanny resemblance to Law’s former fiancée, Sienna Miller.

Father-of-three Law, 34, was officially divorced from actress wife Sadie Frost in 2003. He became engaged to Miller in late 2004 but an affair with his children’s nanny turned that pairing into a roller-coaster romance that finally crashed in December 2006.

Law is now enjoying his blossoming spring romance, but his friend says both are treading carefully: “Neither of them wants to rush things.”
