Torrey DeVitto Is Dating 'Dancing With the Stars' Pro Artem Chigvintsev: 'It's All Very New'
By Jackie Willis
Chicago Med actress Torrey DeVitto and Dancing With the Stars pro Artem Chigvintsev are the new power couple in Hollywood, after meeting earlier this month.
A source close to DeVitto confirmed to ET that the 31-year-old actress started dating the 33-year-old dancer after mutual friends set them up on a blind date. "It's all very brand new," the source said. "They're having fun."
Both DeVitto and Chigvintsev -- who was rumored to be dating his former DWTS partner Mischa Barton last month -- attended the Philosophy Hope & Grace Luncheon for Mental Health Month on Thursday in Los Angeles, California, and an onlooker told ET that the two were "quite close," even holding hands as they left the event for a dinner date. DeVitto spoke about her battle with anxiety at the luncheon, and when she was finished, Chigvintsev -- who was seated at the same table as her -- was seen sweetly hugging and kissing her on the cheek.
ET also chatted with DeVitto about her anxiety and how it affects her TV career. "For me, I feel like there's a lot of shame that's involved with people, you know, admitting that they have anxiety," she said. "You need to know and understand that it doesn’t take away from your power in the workplace or your power as a person or as a woman or a man. You can still be all those powerful things and have anxiety or still be depressed. I just think people should feel comfortable talking about it. It's totally OK."
DeVitto added that her Chicago Med co-stars have been very understanding about her struggle with anxiety. "I’ve been really lucky to work with such amazing people," she gushed. "I’m just always very vocal about things, and I feel like once you stop locking it in, it kind of helps release the symptoms as well."
