Emma Roberts was spotted on Sunday laughing and strolling hand-in-hand through New York with her new boyfriend, actor Garrett Hedlund.

The 28-year-old niece of Julia Roberts modeled a black coat and colorful checked trousers, while Garrett, 34, kept cozy in a denim jacket.

Late last month, an Us Weekly insider shared that 'Emma and Garrett have been friends, but this is new, casual, and just a couple of weeks old.'

Garrett and Emma 'have gone on a few casual dates and are exploring a relationship,' a source spilled to E! News.

The insider added that Emma and Evan 'had their ups and downs for a while now and were really trying to make it work,' but 'their split was a long time coming.' 

A different source explained to Us Weekly: 'Emma and Evan were heading for a split and now are just friends. Evan has moved out. It wasn’t a bad breakup.'
