Jennie Garth is showing off her new boyfriend, three months after finalizing her divorce from actor Peter Facinelli. The two were married for 11 years before Facinelli filed for the split. The couple has three daughters together, Luca, Lola and Fiona.
Facinlli, 38, has since started dating actress Jamie Alexander, 28, and both starred in the movie, “Loosies” which came out in January. Meanwhile, the former “90210” star is dating Michael Shimbo, who is the CEO of a San Francisco-based company called Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

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.”
