Theresa Caputo's love life is thriving!

The Long Island Medium star revealed during an appearance on People the TV Show! Friday that she's dating someone special — and her kids approve.

"I got the approval from my children," she says. "Everything's great."

Caputo, 54, shares two adult children with ex-husband Larry Caputo: daughter Victoria, 26, and son Lawrence, 28.

Caputo says that she's enjoying her time with her new partner and taking life as it comes.

"[We're] taking it day-by-day and just enjoying and embracing life one day at a time," she says. "I think this past year has shown us that we never know what life is gonna throw at us and I think I've learned so much over the past several years and, more importantly through my gift, is that we just have to embrace each moment and just be thankful."

"I felt the itch to write another book, and I didn't feel the timing was right because I was going through my divorce at the time," Caputo said of first wanting to write her book Good Mourning three years ago during her split from husband Larry. "What I learned is that everyday losses affect us everyday. We don't even realize it — not until something catastrophic happens like a death or this pandemic."

She continued, "Nothing in life, as we've witnessed over the past several months, is a guarantee. This pandemic has really opened our eyes to a lot of things. So it's really just recognizing that losses are part of our everyday life and we make freewill choices on how we handle these losses or don't handle them. And if we can recognize them, we'll know what to do and recover much faster."
