Peter Facinelli went public with his new relationship with Jaimie Alexander last month, and though he and ex Jennie Garth are divorcing, Jennie says the dating news still felt like a blow.

"I think there will come a time when it won't sting so bad," Jennie told People of her soon-to-be-ex-husband dating the "Thor" actress. "But I'm not quite there yet."

Jaimie confirmed the relationship last week, telling People, "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."
