July 11 (UPI) -- Hilary Duff got close to rumored new boyfriend Ely Sandvik in Malibu over the weekend.
The 29-year-old actress cozied up to Sandvik during two outings to the beach Saturday and Sunday, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Duff was all smiles in black bikini as she and Sandvik frolicked in the ocean Saturday. She wore a pink bikini while embracing, kissing and playing cards with the SOLr Energy Consulting CEO the next day.
"They were in Malibu Saturday and Sunday," a source told E! News. "They played cards on the beach, hugged and kissed each other a lot. They were both very friendly and talked with everyone."
Entertainment Tonight reported in April that Duff called it quits with singer Matthew Koma in March. The actress shares 5-year-old son Luca with her ex-husband, retired NHL player Mike Comrie, from whom she split in 2014.
"Some of my friends tell me, 'God it must be so nice, you get a break from your kid because you share him.' I'm divorced, and it sucks. Well, it did suck for a while; now it's just normal," she said in the April issue of Cosmopolitan.
"But it's true, I do get a break," the star qualified. "I had Luca by myself for a few weeks, no help, when Mike was on the road, and when he got home I was like, 'He's yours! Bye!'"
Duff presently plays Kelsey Peters on the TV Land series Younger. She confessed in an interview with Good Morning America in June that she "didn't know how to respond" after Luca recently discovered she's famous.
