Jason confirmed their relationship to PEOPLE, saying, "Chrishell and I became close friends and it has developed into an amazing relationship." He added, "I care about her deeply and we are very happy together."
Stause's rep also confirmed the news, telling PEOPLE, "They are happily together."
Stause split from her husband, Justin Hartley, in 2019 when he filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. Their split was a central plot point on Selling Sunset Season 3, with Stause revealing her ex notified her of the divorce filing over text. She was previously linked to Dancing With the Stars pro Keo Motsepe, but the two split in February.
Jason, who used to date Fitzergald long before they became Netflix co-stars, previously told PEOPLE he was unsure about dating a co-worker at the Oppenheim Group, calling a potential relationship with a Selling Sunset star "a big bowl of mess that I don't need to get into."
He added, "I'm definitely looking for someone that I'm friends with, and that I'm happy with, because I can have stress in my life from work. So someone I'm relaxed with, happy with, and that's just funny and smart."
