Chad tweeted a photo of himself and Australian actress Nicky locked in an embrace, adding the caption: "I am a lucky, lucky man. Blessed 2 feel the way the way I do with @NickyWhelan! I hope each of u feels the same in ur world."

Nicky replied: "ALL MY LOVE"

It's though Chad and Nicky met on the set of upcoming movie Left Behind, a thriller that sees millions of people around the world vanish with no explanation. Yikes.

Chad and Nicky walked the red carpet together at an event this week.

Chad ended his seven-year relationship with former fiancée Kenzie Dalton in September. They'd met on the set of One Tree Hill when she played a cheerleader.

Prior to that he was married to another One Tree Hill star, Sophia Bush. Chad and Sophia, who played Brooke, married in April 2005 but split five months later.
