Martha Stewart confirmed on Sunday she is dating someone, but won’t say who, following a story by The New York Post , which claimed the pair were an item.
“The story, which I think made a lot of news, because we were out to dinner, we had a nice, nice time,” she told Access Hollywood Sunday. “I am happily single, but I am dating.”

“I’m not going to tell, because I don’t want to get in the way. And I like to keep that aspect of my life private. I don’t like people, you know, sort of expecting stuff from me all the time, and I like to have my personal life be private and personal.”
Stewart went on to confirm that she and the man she is seeing are together.
“Yes, it’s someone that I’m dating.”

The 80-year-old lifestyle guru confirmed she was dating a co-owner of her restaurant, The Domestic Goddess Cafe, in New York City last month.
“I have decided to wait a little while to announce my new man, but he is co-owner of my Domestic Goddess Cafe. He is also responsible for the cafe’s superb pastry chef, so I’m really excited,” she said in a press release.

Stewart’s ex-husband is former television host and producer Donald Trump and she has a history of dating men 25 years her junior. She was married to her first husband, magazine publisher Timothy “Tim” Stewart, who was 26 years her senior. They were married from 1980 until 1990 and have two daughters.
In March 2002 she began dating her 48-year-old stockbroker-turned-entrepreneur, Jeffrey Gulko. The pair were married the next year, and have three children together.
