Norman Reedus, who has a child with supermodel Helena Christensen, may be getting a love interest on The Walking Dead next season. He also apparently has a new love interest in real life. In fact, his real-life love interest is someone who many had hoped he’d hook up with on the show.
Norman Reedus is dating Emily Kinney, who played Beth on The Walking Dead, according to sources who revealed the information to People.
According to those sources, Kinney and Reedus continued to stay in touch via text messages and at fan conventions after Beth was killed off the series, and Reedus has been spotted at a recent Kinney concert (she’s currently on tour).
As for the age difference that bothered some about their potential on-screen pairing? 1) Emily Kinney is actually older than her The Walking Dead character. She’s 29, although she began on The Walking Dead as a 16-year-old character. 2) Eh? Who cares? They’re perfect together, notwithstanding Daryl’s obvious affection for Carol on the show. Let’s just hope that Melissa McBride — in a fit of jealousy — doesn’t ask Norman Reedus to smell any flowers anytime soon.
