Lady GaGa has gone public with her new romance after enjoying a romantic stroll with Taylor Kinney in California at Christmas.
The singer was first linked to The Vampire Diaries star in July (11) after he played her love interest in the music video for her single You And I.
Now the new lovers have stepped out together for the first time - they were photographed with their arms wrapped affectionately around each other in California over the weekend (24-25Dec11).
According to Britain's The Sun, the couple celebrated the holiday at a beach house Kinney shares with three other friends.
Gaga refuses to speak about the relationship, but told reporters in October (11), "You know, I don't talk about my love life, but I'm very happy."
