Alison is a musician and visual artist, famed for fronting the band The Kills with Kate Moss’ ex Jamie Hince.

She splits her time between London, Los Angeles and Nashville.

Spotted at a trio of events

They were first spotted at the National Gallery for a fundraising event last month and they attended the Serpentine Summer Party too.

If she’s happy, we are happy. I’m yet to meet him but certainly I’d like to

Damian and Alison are also reported to have attended the Grand Prix at Silverstone together.

After the event, Alison took to Instagram and shared: “The absolute thrill. I’m still floating… at 200 miles per hour.”

However, perhaps the most concrete confirmation has come from Alison’s mum Vivian.

The rocker’s mum told the Daily Mail that she expected she’d be in trouble with her daughter for speaking about the romance.

However, she said she’s “excited” for her daughter and keen to meet Damian.

“I don’t know how much flak I’m going to get for all of this but of course we are excited for her,” she said.

Vivian went on to claim: “They have mutual friends. I don’t know exactly how they met but I’m fine with it.

“If she’s happy, we are happy. I’m yet to meet him but certainly I’d like to,” she added.

Helen McCrory’s wish for husband Damian Lewis

Peaky Blinders star Helen McCrory was just 52 when she died last year after a secret breast cancer battle.

Helen and Damian had been married since 2007 and shared two children together – son Gulliver, 14, and daughter Manon, 15.

At her memorial, he said: “She said to us from her bed: ‘I want Daddy to have girlfriends, lots of them, you must all love again, love isn’t possessive.’

“‘But you know, Damian, try at least to get through the funeral without snogging someone.'”
