Pint-sized singer and actress Kristin Chenoweth has been rumored to be dating former "The Bachelor" contestant Jake Pavelka, and now the paparazzi has unearthed proof of the relationship.
Photographers caught Chenoweth, 44, and Pavelka, 34, enjoying a romantic dinner together this week. The couple grabbed a bite at West Hollywood restaurant Joey's Café on Tuesday evening, according to a report from Life & Style Magazine.
Chenoweth bundled up with a striped sweater, fur vest, gloves and jeans, while Pavelka also stayed warm but kept his look simple in jeans, a blue button-up shirt and a long gret coat.

A source who was at the restaurant at the same time gave Life & Style the scoop on Chenoweth and Pavelka's evening together.
"Kristin and Jake walked into Joey's Cafe in West Hollywood on Nov. 13 and sat together at a cozy table. They both had sunglasses on like they didn't want to be recognized," the eyewitness told the magazine. "They ate and held hands across the table. They started to kind of nuzzle and Jake seemed so into Kristin. He looked like he was star struck and in love at the same time - just beaming and smiling the whole time."
Before he began dating Chenoweth, Pavelka had found love during his season as "The Bachelor" in 2010, when he became engaged to contestant Vienna Girardi. But the couple's love didn't last, and the pair called off the romance later that same year.
Chenoweth spent several years dating Aaron Sorkin, creator of hit television drama series like "The West Wing" and HBO's "The Newsroom."
After breaking things off with Sorkin, Chenoweth opened up last year about her plans for the future and hopes for a family.
"I want to be married," she said. "I feel finally ready for that. Possibly [becoming] a mom someday, even if it's to animals. My goals might be different than doing all these amazing career things. I think the next chapter will be focusing more on my personal life."
