Andy Baldwin, Marla Maples confirm they’re dating

Bachelor 10 star Andy Baldwin and Donald Trump’s ex Marla Maples are officially dating. They were together in the audience of Dancing with the Stars last night, and Marla stars in the new CBS series Secret Talents of the Stars, a talent competition that debuts tonight at 10 p.m. ET.

Marla, who’s 44, told OK! Magazine that “Andrew is awesome. He’s a great human being. We both love sports; we both love giving back. We’re having a great time. … We try to lift and inspire each other.”

They’ve only been dating since February. “We met (last year) and I found her to be very sweet, positive. She’s polite and respectful and has a great heart,” Andy, 31, told People.

As to his relationship with Tessa Horst–they broke up in August, and he was spotted with another woman shortly thereafter–he says that they’re still friends. “I definitely care for her a great deal. I have no regrets about that experience or the relationship that we had,” he said.
