Holland Taylor recently spoke out about being in a deeply committed relationship with a woman.

Though in a recent podcast appearance the Two and a Half Men star, 72, declined to name her partner, multiple sources tell PEOPLE that she has been dating American Horror Story star Sarah Paulson, 40, for a few months.

“It’s the most wonderful, extraordinary thing that could have ever possibly happened in my life,” Holland said on WNYC’s Death, Sex & Money podcast.

Though the actress declined to discuss her partner’s identity on the podcast, she did reveal that her love interest is a younger woman and that the pair are discussing marriage.

“Given my generation it would not be something that would automatically occur to me,” Taylor said of talk of marrying her partner. “But as a symbol, as a pledge, as a plighting one’s troth, it would be a wonderful thing to do.” On the podcast, the Two and a Half Men star said she has no interest in making her sexuality the topic of a political conversation.

“I haven’t come out because I am out,” she said, adding, “I live out.”

Taylor finding love comes after she struggled with depression following the death of her mother.

“I wasn’t actually a danger to myself but I really sometimes wondered how I could get out of the house to go get food,” Taylor told Parade in 2013. “I was on antidepressants for over 15 years, with very intermittent counseling. It was a very dead period of my life.”
