Nine months have passed since Jennie Garth and "Twilight" actor Peter Facinelli announced their divorce, but the former "Beverly Hills, 90210" star says seeing her husband move on with another woman still "stings."

Garth opened up to People magazine about Facinelli dating actress and his former costar Jaimie Alexander, saying, "I think there will come a time when it won't sting so bad. But I'm not quite there yet." Adding, "You know, I am happy that he is happy, though."

Facinelli first met Alexander while filming "Loosies," which came out in January, ABC News reported. The 38-year-old father of three is 10 years older than the 28-year-old "Thor" actress.

"We've been friends forever and had a lot of mutual friends and we reconnected in the middle of the year," she told the magazine. "It was one of those things where I'd been single for a very long time and he was going through a lot. We sort of bonded." Continuing, "It's very new to me and it's scary. But it's also something we don't want to give up on because I know how it makes me feel in my heart ... It makes me feel really good. He's a good guy with a great family and I couldn't be any luckier."

As for 40-year-old Garth, she has her own romance kindling. Garth admitted to People she's also dating, but would not reveal who her new beau is.

She has been linked to HGTV's Antonio Ballatore, photographer Noah Abrams and businessman Jason Clarke.

She has also been spending some quality time with her "90210" co-star, Luke Perry. Perry even wants to try setting Garth up. "He keeps saying he wants to because he doesn't approve of my choices so far," she told Us Weekly in November.
