It was love, set, match for Demi Moore during the men’s singles final of the 2022 French Open at Roland Garros in Paris. 

Looking completely smitten, the actress was all smiles as she sat with her rumoured new beau, chef Daniel Humm, as they watched Rafael Nadal beat Casper Ruud 3-0.

The American actress, who brought a pint-sized pooch to the tennis match, was seen embracing and kissing the Swiss restaurateur. 

The city of love seems to be their destination of choice as this isn’t the first time Demi (59) has been seen stepping out with Daniel (46), owner of Eleven Madison Park in Manhattan, New York, a fine-dining, meat-free restaurant that boasts three Michelin stars.

The pair were first snapped together in March when they attended the Chloe Womenswear Fall/Winter 2022/2023 show at Paris Fashion Week. 

“Demi met Daniel through mutual friends and they clicked right away,” a source told Us Weekly magazine after news of their relationship broke. “He’s charming, loves the finer things in life and is extremely cultured, plus they share the same devilish sense of humour and sense of adventure.” 

The relationship reportedly bloomed even as the Songbird star supported her ex-husband Bruce Willis (67), who's been diagnosed with aphasia. Bruce is the father of Demi's three daughters, Rumer (33), Scout (30) and Tallulah (28).

“They're really hot and heavy at the moment,” another insider told Page Six of Daniel and Demi.

“Daniel works long, hard hours at his restaurant but they often make time for Demi join him for romantic dinners there.” 

Demi split from her third husband, actor Ashton Kutcher (44), in 2013. Before her 13-year-marriage to Bruce she was married to musician Freddy Moore (71) for five years in the '80s.

Who is Daniel? 

Daniel was born in Switzerland. Before the age of 24, he earned his first Michelin star and moved to the US to pursue his culinary dreams. 

“I came to the US 13 years ago not speaking any English, with two suitcases and a handful of dollars in my pocket,” he said in an interview in 2017. 

His eatery, Eleven Madison Park, has since topped lists of the world's best restaurants, but has also taken some knocks.

The pandemic saw his business on the brink of bankruptcy, but the entrepreneur turned the situation around by temporarily closing and reopening the restaurant with a completely plant-based menu. 

"At times I thought, 'Well, if we're going bankrupt with Eleven Madison Park, maybe that's the end of a chapter'," he told CNN in August.

"I actually got to the place where I was comfortable with that idea. I mean, you have to."

The menu at his fine-dining spot which often attracts celebs includes items such as vegan caviar made from tonburi (a seed from Japan), roasted eggplant with coriander, and sesame tofu with squash.

“After he started getting really famous he started dating all of these celebrities and influencers,” a source told NY Post newspaper about Daniel.

He’s had a number of high-profile romances he's dated supermodels Tyra Banks (48) and Naomi Campbell (52), while his name was last romantically linked to Steve Jobs' billionaire widow, Laurene Powell Jobs (58), in 2019. 

He went Instagram official with the Ghost actress in April when he posted a pic of them with artist Roni Horn at his show in Paris. 

"They clicked right away," an insider said.
