"About last night... @RobertsEmma @becbecbobec love them!" she wrote, adding wine and heart emojis.

Last month, Michele gushed about her then-beau when she spoke with Fempire podcast hosts Becca Tobin, Keltie Knight and Jac Vanek. Michele said Monteith would have definitely approved of Paetz.

"At the end of the day, this industry is really tough, and the only way to get through is to create a solid unit, and that's really what we've been since day one," Michele said. "We've stood by each other through anything that was thrown our way. [Matt] is a such a great man that he would never really let anything like that ever crack our lovely little core that we've created."

"He is very respectful towards the person that I was with, and that, again, is something I love so much about him," Michele continued, adding, "I really know that Cory would love him too."
