"Josh knows he can give her what Kevin didn’t, even though he is a high-powered executive with his own demanding career," an insider told Daily Mail.

"Christine herself said Josh is the man she wants to spend the rest of her life with. It’s not like Christine is at home wishing she was in the glitz and glamour of Cannes; she would much rather be walking on the beach barefoot with Josh," they shared.

The pair were first photographed together in January and Connor was later roped into Christine's divorce battle with Costner. Despite the drama of their romance, he has already bonded with Christine's children, taking their blended family to dinner in Montecito over Memorial Day weekend.

Connor, a divorced father, "knows how important her children are to her – as his are to him. Trying to blend two families isn’t easy but she’s worth it," the insider stated.
