After rumours of a romance surfaced on social media earlier this week, Stephanie's manager, Terry Mills, told Reveal: "I can confirm they are dating however it's very early days. My client's main focus right now is her daughters and Hollyoaks."
The actress, who plays the scheming Cindy Cunningham in the Channel 4 soap, is mum to two beautiful daughters, Mia and Lexi.
Rumours that Stephanie and her fellow soap star Michael had quietly started dating surfaced on social media on Monday, after Stephanie posted a gorgeous picture of herself and Michael on Instagram.
Captioning the shot, she said: "This guy! @thegrecs... Great night at Symposium!"
Stephanie has starred as Cindy in Hollyoaks on and off since 1996 and is one of the soap's most recognisable faces, having appeared in numerous high profile storylines.
Michael, 45, played Beppe di Marco in EastEnders from 1998 to 2002.
His spokesman told The Sun this week: "Neither I or Michael discuss or comment on private or family matters with the media."
