The former dancer, who was married to the Dirty Dancing star for 34 years, met jeweller Albert DePrisco at a small party in California earlier this year (12) and the couple has been dating ever since.
A source tells the National Enquirer, ""Lisa and Albert were introduced by a mutual friend at a California gathering late last spring. From the moment they met, there was an attraction between them.""
And it appears the Steel Dawn actress' new romance is getting serious - she recently flew to DePrisco's native Florida to meet his parents.
An insider adds, ""Both of Albert's parents really seemed to take a shine to Lisa. The four of them spent the afternoon at lunch, chatting and laughing. Before leaving, Albert's parents hugged Lisa goodbye.""
The publication has also obtained pictures of the pair hugging and sharing a tender kiss.
