People are flooding to social media after hearing Sophia Bush and Ashlyn Harris are 'both beginning new chapters' dating one another.

The One Tree Hill actor and retired US Women's National Team star both split from their respective partners earlier this year.

Bush filed for divorce from husband Grant Hughes earlier this year in August after 13 months of marriage and Harris similarly filed for divorce from her wife, Ali Krieger, in September - the pair having been together four years.

News of Bush and Hughes' separation arose in August, a source confirming the split to PEOPLE.

The pair had celebrated their first wedding anniversary seven weeks earlier, with Bush sharing a post to Instagram calling her decision to marry Hughes the 'best decision of [her] life'.

The source who confirmed Bush's split from Hughes' told PEOPLE: "Sophia and Grant were friends for 10 years and bonded during COVID through their love of community service. They continue to run their nonprofit together and remain good friends.”

Harris and Krieger got married in 2019 and have two adopted children, but on 19 September this year Harris filed paperwork stating their marriage was 'irretrievably broken'.

One X - formerly known as Twitter - user said: "I could not possibly love this story more."

"That's wonderful news! I WISH Sophia Bush and Ashlyn Harris all the happiness in their relationship! (and positivity vibes)," another added.

A third commented: "I thought Ashlyn was married to Ali Krieger???"

PEOPLE's source was quick to squash any rumours of a cross-over or infidelity, noting the public 'may want there to be' but there is 'no salacious story'.
