Jennie Garth and her 14-year-old daughter Luca attended the 2012 CMT Music Awards in Nashville, Tenn. on Wednesday (June 6). The mother-daughter duo were all smiles as they rocked the red carpet together.
It sounds like the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star, 40, is dating Antonio Ballatore, the Season 4 champion of HGTV Design Star.
About two months after she and Twilight star hubby, Peter Facinelli, announced the end of their 11-year marriage, Jennie was seen having a romantic dinner date with the HGTV star at First Food and Bar at the Palazzo in Las Vegas. The were “flirty and very touchy” over dinner and dessert at the eatery on May 9, a source told Us Weekly.
And in late April, the pair were quite flirty via Twitter. “Saw a show today called The Antonio Treatment. I think I need that,” Jennie wrote.
“On my way! 😉 xo,” Ballatore replied.
Jennie and Peter are also parents to daughters Lola, 9, and Fiona, 5. Facinelli filed divorce papers in late March citing irreconcilable differences.
Speaking to a therapist on her CMT reality show Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country she talked about the split.
It’s weird and sad, but I really realized through this whole experience how much I loved him, how deeply I loved him and how deeply I loved us.” She continued, “I think with any sort of rejection, you’re angry that you weren’t enough for that person. So I don’t know if I’m angry at myself for not being enough, or if I’m angry at him for not considering me to be enough.”
