Kate Hudson has a new leading man in her life - after reportedly falling for sports star Lance Armstrong.
After hitting it off at a recent dinner party, the actress is said to have flown from New York on a private jet to spend a romantic weekend with the cycling ace at his home in Austin, Texas.
Earlier this month, Hudson was rumoured to be engaged to on-off boyfriend Owen Wilson - but sources claim that at the time of the reports, the 29-year-old had already secretly begun dating Armstrong, 36.
An insider tells British newspaper The Mail On Sunday: "Kate and Lance have been dating for a couple of weeks. She thought it was really funny when people were writing recently that she was engaged to Owen, because the reality was that they had split again and she was secretly seeing Lance.
"She and Lance are both physical, passionate people - she's never been happier."
Armstrong was previously engaged to singer Sheryl Crow.
