Elisabetta Canalis and George Clooney

The 33-year-old beauty – who split from George Clooney in June after being with him for almost two years – reportedly started seeing the TV hunk when she was voted off 'Dancing with the Stars' last month, and has already started calling him her "boyfriend".

A source told US Weekly magazine: "They're dating. They started seeing each other after she left 'Dancing with the Stars'. She already refers to him as her boyfriend. They're really cute."

Elisabetta recently claimed she had a "father-daughter" relationship with the notoriously private Hollywood actor, but being George's girlfriend was "like living a fairytale".

In a new book, 'Questo Amore' by Italian journalist Bruno Vespa, she said: "He has been special for me, and very important, just as a father would be. Between us there was more of a father-daughter relationship. I was unable to clarify this until now.

"It was a great love and it was like living a fairy tale. George is a real gentleman even with his private life. I was very well respected as a partner."
