Fred Armisen and Abby Elliott are dating!

As a disclaimer, this looks a little like celebrity gossip, so it might not be 100% true, but there are quotes and stuff, so it probably is true.

Fred Armisen has been linked with 'Saturday Night Live' costar Abby Elliott, with Life & Style reporting he's officially dating the actress, who is two decades his junior. This news comes just days after Armisen's split from 'Mad Men' star Elisabeth Moss was revealed; the married couple separated in May after 10 months of marriage in what was termed an amicable separation.
Armisen, 43, joined 'SNL' in 2002; Elliott, 23, came onboard in 2008. Of the new couple, a source tells Life & Style: "After the split, Fred sought comfort in Abby. They just started dating a few months ago. 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."

Thanks to Kylie for the scoop!

So what's interesting is that Andy went to their wedding (Fred and Elisabeth). Also, they were only married for 10 months. That's sad, because the first year of marriage is the one to beat since it's the year of crazy "wait what did I do" thoughts, arguments, and a rude awakening from the twitterpation of dating. It's where you fall out of love and into lifelong companionship and true love. It's hard for everyone.

Now the other interesting thing is that I'd never expect Fred Armisen to be the one playing the field and moving on to relationships with attractive younger starlets like this. Abby's quite the catch.

So congrats to Fred and Abby, but it's sad that it's coming after the demise of Fred's marriage. It should be cool for Andy though, because he's probably a little more likely to hang out with them both now (with their powers combined, Abby and Fred are probably a ton of fun as a couple).

What do you think?

i personally think this is kinda gross. i mean, im glad they are happy together but, abby's 20 years younger than fred! elizabeth was 27 when her and fred got married. i know they say "age is just a number" but, come on!

i also think it's kindof random that these two are dating. I don't think they make a cute couple altough i love them both, just not together

20 years age difference... wow!
i kinda think it's stupid to have office relationships, i hope it doesn't effect their work when they break up. this is very very disturbing!

i feel sad for lizzy. he moved on really fast and also with a co-worker (now i wonder, was abby the reason for the break up? - u never know)
