Charlize Theron has apparently fallen for Modern Family actor Eric Stonestreet.

The 37-year-old actress was introduced to Eric - who plays gay dad Cameron Tucker in the hit show - by mutual friends earlier this year. Although the pair were initially just pals, it is believed their feelings have intensified recently.

"Charlize and Eric get along incredibly well. They started off as friends but things are blossoming between them," a source told British newspaper The Daily Mail.

It was recently revealed that Stonestreet, 41, had split from his long-term girlfriend Katherine Tokarz.

Although the news only broke a few days ago, they believed to have parted ways around nine months ago and Tokarz. is now engaged to writer-producer Bret Calvert.

Theron is said to be smitten with Stonestreet and they are taking things slowly.

"Eric is down to earth and funny and Charlize thinks the world of him. It's early days but they're very fond of each other," the source added.

Theron adopted a boy called Jackson in March and Eric has apparently formed a close bond with the baby.

Theron hasn't had a serious relationship since splitting from fiancé Stuart Townsend in 2010.
