Sep. 21 2020, Updated 2:40 p.m. ET

After a long break from the dating scene, it seems Kim Cattrall has found a man that she's very happy with. Kim has been dating Russell Thomas for four years, and although she's spoken about their relationship on a couple of occasions, there's still a great deal that the public doesn't know about him. Although Kim is open to gushing about her relationship, she likes to keep many of the more intimate details private.

What is Kim Cattrall's boyfriend's age?

Russell is not a public figure, and so there isn't a lot of available information about him. Just recently, though, Kim posted a picture of the two of them on her Instagram and wished him a happy 50th birthday. The Sex and the City star is currently 64, which means there's a 14-year age gap between the two of them. That may sound like a lot, but the difference doesn't seem that pronounced in photos.

How did Kim Cattrall and her boyfriend meet?

In an interview with Glamour, Kim explained how the two of them wound up together. “Russell and I met at the BBC, he was working at the BBC and we liked each other," Kim explained. "He followed me and I followed him on Twitter, he direct messaged me. It was very, very modern it’s just been very easy.” She added that the relationship has been "real good" and described Russell as a "great guy." 

Kim gushed about Russell in a more recent interview.

In speaking with People, Kim explained that she was over the moon about her relationship. During the interview, she explained that the two of them had been spending their quarantine in Canada. "From the beginning, [Russ] and I felt like we needed to get out of town, so we came up to my house in Canada," she said. Kim spent much of her early life in Vancouver.

Kim said that the two first started dating after Russell decided to travel to Vancouver to see her. At the time, they had largely communicated online. "It was very brave of him because we didn't really know each other other than having a few meals together," she said. "But he came and we got along great, and we've been together ever since!"

Kim says her relationship with Russell is easy.

Kim has been through three previous marriages, but her love life has been mostly out of the spotlight since she got divorced in 2004. In her relationship with Russell, she says that things have largely come easy. "I'm very comfortable around him," she explained. "He's a firecracker and he's got a wicked sense of humor. And he's easy on the eyes!" 

Now, the couple have a regular routine together that Kim is hugely fond of. They start every day with a cup of tea together. Typically, they also have another tea after they've had their lunch. She knows it's "very British," but cherishes the routine and her partner anyway. "I love him," Kim said of Russell. "And he was worth waiting for."
