"It works out well," a source told Us, explaining that Hough enjoys sports. "They're having fun."
Added another source, "She's happier than ever."
Hough and the Washington Capitals player were spotted holding hands and kissing at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA, on Saturday, according to an eyewitness. The couple also reportedly hiked with her two dogs on Sunday in Studio City, CA.
Hough has apparently not been in a serious relationship since Ryan Seacrest, American Idol's 39-year-old host. Reports Seacrest and Hough called it quits after nearly three years of dating first surfaced in March 2013, when the pair had decided to "take a break" and end their living-together arrangement.
Heavy work schedules made it difficult for Seacrest and the actress to maintain their relationship, according to People sources, but they had intended to remain friends.
Seacrest has since been rumored to be dating Shayna Terese Taylor, a 38-year-old blonde model, personal trainer and New Mexico native who is currently living in the Los Angeles area. In Touch Weekly also reported in June 2013 that Seacrest was dating Sports Illustrated model Dominique Piek.
