Actor Max Irons is preparing to leave his native London and move to New York to set up home with his girlfriend.

The Host star, son of British acting veteran Jeremy Irons, reveals he's been in a long-distance romance for some time, but he's now ready to take the next step.

During an interview on U.S. morning show Live with Kelly & Michael, he said, "I think I'm moving out here. My girlfriend lives out here and things are getting kind of serious so I thought I should make the move out. You know, she's pretty good, what can I say?"

Irons has yet to reveal the identity of the lucky lady, but the 27 year old previously dated actress Emily Browning and was briefly linked to his The Host co-star Saoirse Ronan earlier this year (13).
