Chelsea Handler has a new boyfriend. His name is Jo Koy. The 46-year-old took to Instagram to gush about her new beau, and fans everywhere are excited about this new relationship. According to Chelsea, she’s in love.
Along with a beautiful photo of herself, Chelsea posted this message to fans. She said “Just sitting here in Mallorca thinking about how grateful I am to have so many people that I love in my life, to live the life I do and to be going on tour doing what I love. And that I’m finally in love, with the best kind of guy there is. There is hope for everyone! That kind of stuff.”
Fellow celebrities like Paris Hilton praised and congratulated the comedian on her new love. Kate Beckinsale jokingly commented “So happy to hear this, you big beautiful bitch <3”
While the post didn’t mention Jo by name, fans of Chelsea have noticed that the couple has been spending a lot of time together and they want to know more about the new man in Chelsea Handler’s life.
The couple was first spotted together a couple weeks ago at a L.A. Dodgers game engaging in some heavy PDA. It was Jo that threw the first pitch of the night. Then, according to witnesses, the pair cuddled up in the bleachers to enjoy the game.
“Jo Koy at Dodger game in LA!” said one witness. “Saw Chelsea Handler on the big screen and obvi googled the two of them. Then saw him kiss a blonde next to him (she is masked so it’s hard to tell).”
Jo is also a comedian and while the pair have been friends for years, they have gotten a lot closer in recent months. He shared a photo of them at the game, and they look super-cute together.
Fans of both comedians have been speculating that the pair has been dating for some time after Chelsea made a handful of appearances on Jo’s Instagram stories and videos. In one video, proud Filipino comedian Jo is teaching Chelsea how to make rice.
In an interview with The Daily Beast, Jo praised Chelsea for how she handles the media spotlight. He said, “But then Chelsea called me up and she put me on the show and next thing you know everyone thought I was one of the cast members because I was on it so much. And that’s the beautiful thing about Chelsea, by the way. She shares her limelight. She shares it and she understands that it takes a team for something to be as big as it was.”
Chelsea and Jo haven’t confirmed their relationship, and Jo Koy has even sidestepped the conversation. While talking to TMZ right after the Dodgers game, Jo told reporters that he and Chelsea were just friends, but kept calling her beautiful. We’re guessing that denial makes the heart grow fonder!
