Minnie Driver has made things official with her new boyfriend, filmmaker Addison O’Dea.

On Sunday, the Speechless actress was joined by O’Dea for the Amazon Emmy Awards afterparty at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. Driver, 49, wore a one-shoulder gray leather dress, while her new man opted for a black suit and bowtie.

The actress also shared a photo to Instagram from the afterparty. In the picture, she rested her hand on O’Dea’s lap as the two smiled for the shot while seated at a table.

“Special guest appearance by @tracelysette ‘s incredible derrière top right. #emmys#chateau,” wrote Driver, joking about the reflection of actress Trace Lysette’s behind that can be seen in the photo.
