The interior designer and TV personality was seen getting cozy with Brent in New York City recently, Page Six reported. They were spotted at Barneys on Madison Avenue on Dec. 2 "kissing in the men's section," according to a source. They later enjoyed a visit to Central Park's ice rink, according to Brent's Twitter posts.

Brent also made an appearance at Berkus' book signing for "The Things That Matter" at Bergdorfs on Dec. 4. "So proud @Nate_Berkus. Beautiful evening promoting truth, love and education http://www.tylerclementi.org #loveislove," he tweeted.

Although he is happy now, Berkus faced tremendous sorrow after his boyfriend, photographer Fernando Bengoechea, was killed in the December 2004 tsunami in Sri Lanka. The designer and his boyfriend were vacationing in southeast Asia when disaster struck. The two were swept from the hut they were staying in and separated by the force of the current. For months, Berkus couldn't even leave his house.

"Grief in and of itself, I don't wish on anyone," Berkus told HuffPost live during a recent interview while promoting his book, "but it's also a very personal process everyone has to go through in their own time and in their own way... the goal, no matter how long it takes or how cyclical it is, the goal is to not get stuck in the grief."

Instead of getting stuck in that greif and let it define him, Berkus created a new normal. "It's the idea for me of not getting stuck, however that works for you, being able to take even the smallest step to move forward," he told HuffPost Live.

Berkus previously dated Brian Atwood from 2007 to 2009.
