Actor Liam Neeson found a new love, a British public relations executive named Freya St. Johnston, a year and a half after the tragic death of his wife, actress Natasha Richardson.
The 56 year-old is reportedly completely focused on raising his two sons, Michael, 13, and Daniel,12, and only recently started considering the possibility of finding a new partner. Liam and Freyâ€™s relationship is still very new as they were spotted holding hands in London, England on September 3.
“She’s a wonderful person and a fantastic mother,” Johnston’s ex, Matt Winton, a marketing exec for the U.K.-based street wear brand Boxfresh, tells PEOPLE. “She takes life seriously in a free-spirited kind of way.”
Adds Winton, “They make a very nice couple.”
Freya seems to be the right woman for Liam at the moment. She is also a mother-of-two, so she understand Liamâ€™s need to make sure his kids have what they need to grow up to be responsible and happy adults despite the tragedy of losing their mother at such a young age.
