Joshua Jackson and Lupita Nyong'o ‘confirm’ romance two months after sparking dating speculation

Joshua Jackson, 45, and Lupita Nyong'o, 40, have seemingly confirmed their romance after they were spotted walking hand-in-hand on Wednesday.

The pair first sparked dating speculation back in October when they were seen at a Janelle Monáe concert together, shortly after their respective splits were announced.

At the time, the Oscar winning actress had just confirmed her split from Selema Masekela, 52 while Jackson had separated from Jodie Turner-Smith, with whom he shares daughter Juno, three, the month prior.

Now in photos obtained by MailOnline, the pair looked as though they were enjoying each other’s company as they took a stroll in Joshua Tree National Park located in San Bernardino County, California.

The Standard has contacted Joshua Jackson and Lupita Nyong'o’s representatives for comment.

Their outing comes two weeks after it was reported that Jackson and his ex agreed to joint custody of their three-year-old daughter.

In court documents seen by The Blast, the Canadian actor finally responded to Turner-Smith’s petition and agreed that “irreconcilable differences” were the reason for the split.

The legal docs, filed by the Dawson’s Creek alum, also revealed that he and Turner-Smith, 37, will split legal and physical custody of their daughter.

According to the outlet, Jackson only disagreed with the White Noise star on one issue – the date of their separation.

The British model-turned-actress listed the date as September 13, 2023 while he insisted it was later, September 30, 2023.

In October, it was revealed that Turner-Smith and Jackson were parting ways after almost four years of marriage.

The couple met in 2018 through mutual friends and have spoken previously about how their relationship was casual to begin with. But the couple tied the knot in December 2019 after the actress proposed during a New Year’s Eve holiday in Nicaragua, with Jackson saying in the past he “instinctively” said yes.

Celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser – who has previously worked with Kim Kardashian and Britney Spears – is said to be representing Smith in the divorce.
