Former Sex And The City beauty Kristin Davis has reportedly found love with a veteran comic almost 20 years her senior - Steve Martin.

The TV star and the Father of the Bride funnyman have reportedly enjoyed a series of intimate dates and were holding hands at a pre-Oscars party in Los Angeles on Sunday (27FEB05), reports Britain's DAILY STAR newspaper.

And pals of the pair claim Martin, 59, is so smitten, he threw a surprise party for Davis to celebrate her 40th birthday last month (23FEB05).

One friend says, "It's the real thing - they have become very close. They are ready to let people know they are an item. They tried to act like they were not together at the party but couldn't stop stealing kisses."
