"We've been friends forever and had a lot of mutual friends and we reconnected in the middle of the year," Alexander told People.com. "It was one of those things where I'd been single for a very long time and he was going through a lot. We sort of bonded."
Jaimie said of their blossoming relationship, "It's very new to me and it's scary. But it's also something we don't want to give up on because I know how it makes me feel in my heart… It makes me feel really good. He's a good guy with a great family and I couldn't be any luckier."
