The summer is shaping up nicely for Lance Bass, who recently landed a new job – and a new man.

The former ‘N Sync star, 28, celebrated the 4th of July in New York’s Hamptons drinking Ciroc vodka with his new beau, model Pedro Andrade, a source close to Bass tells PEOPLE.

The two were at a party held at the Estate, a private home in the Hamptons.

“You could tell they’re very happy with each other,” a source says of Bass and Andrade. “Pedro is beyond good-looking … so hot. Pedro is spunky, full of life. They’re a perfect match.”

Asked about Bass and Andrade, the singer’s press rep, Cindy Owen, said, “I have no comment about his personal life at this time.”

Last winter Bass split from Amazing Race winner Reichen Lehmkul – and, in April, he told PEOPLE he was loving the single life: “It’s nice to be able to just date, because I had never been on a date in my life.”

Professionally, on Aug. 14 Bass will join the cast of Broadway’s long-running musical Hairspray. He’ll play the role of a Dick Clark-like TV host named Corny Collins, New York’s Daily News reports.
