Chad Lowe is seeing producer Kim Painter, his rep confirms.

"They are dating," Lowe's publicist, Cindy Guagenti, tells PEOPLE. Lowe, 39, split last year from wife Hilary Swank.

Lowe and Painter were spotted together at the Nov. 15 L.A. premiere of Carrie Fisher's one-woman show, Wishful Drinking, which Painter co-produced.

Since then, they've been making appearances all over L.A. (as the New York Daily News first reported) – including a recent trip to Mr. Chow for dinner with Lowe's family.

And after the Golden Globes, they chatted and smooched at the InStyle/Warner Bros. party, and later, while waiting at the valet stand, Lowe introduced Painter to friends including Emilio Estevez, Seal and Heidi Klum. Painter grumbled about the cold and Lowe gave her a snuggle to keep her warm.

Romance isn't the only thing going well in Lowe's life: On Jan. 29, the actor-director, who helmed last year's Beautiful Ohio, will make his debut as Deputy Chief of Staff Reed Pollock on FOX's 24.
