Saturday Night Live‘ costars Fred Armisen and Abby Elliott are dating, according to Life & Style.

Armisen recently separated from wife Elisabeth Moss of ‘Mad Men’ after 10 months of marriage. An insider claims the relationship between Armisen, 43, and Elliott, 23, who is the daughter of comedian Chris Elliott, developed after his split from Moss earlier this summer.

“They’ve known each other for a few years from being on ‘SNL’ together but after the split, Fred sought comfort in Abby. They just started dating a few months ago,” a source tells the magazine. “Fred and Abby are getting to know each other in a romantic way and taking things slowly. But they’re enjoying each other’s company. It’s early days.”

The couple has reportedly been separated since May. While Fred films his new series ‘Portlandia’ in Portland, “Elisabeth is in LA focusing on her career and spending quiet time with friends,” says a source.

Moss, who’s up for an Emmy for her performance on AMC’s ‘Mad Men,’ and Armisen (of ‘Saturday Night Live‘) married in October 2009, after an eight-month engagement.

No reason was given for the split. This was the first marriage for Moss and the second for Armisen.
