It seems actress Jessica Lowndes is officially off the market. The “90210” star posted several cryptic Instagram photos suggesting that she’s found love, but she did not identify the man who stole her heart until late Sunday.

Lowndes, 27, began leaving a trail of clues about her love life on Friday. She uploaded a photo from Snapchat to Instagram showing the hand of an older man tightly holding onto one of her thighs. The photo suggested that there was “a new man” in her life, but she did not reveal who. Lowndes commented on the age of her secret beau, writing that his hands could “tell a thousand stories.” She posted several similar photos before sharing a video with fans in which she teased a major “secret” that she was excited to share. Lowndes then posted a photo of a huge ring on that finger.

The big reveal came on Sunday when comedian Jon Lovitz, formerly a regular on “Saturday Night Live,” tweeted that he was spending Easter with Lowndes. The tweet featured several heart emojis and quickly garnered the attention of haters. Lovitz, 58, chalked the bitterness up to pure “jealousy.”

While the pair seem pretty serious about their romance, fans are skeptical. Many took to Twitter to discuss the new relationship and it seems a vast majority of users are somewhat certain Lowndes and Lovitz are pulling a fast one. One user warned other fans not to"fall for it.” Others simply couldn’t wrap their minds around their potential engagement.

This is Lowndes’ first public romance since dating Scottish rugby star Thom Evans. The couple broke up after seven months in October 2013, according to the Daily Mail. Similarly, Lovitz has not been linked to anyone since his brief romance with model Janice Dickinson in 2004.
