Matt LeBlanc finally goes public with Top Gear producer girlfriend, who is 17 years his junior

Matt LeBlanc has finally decided to go public with his girlfriend, Aurora Mulligan, almost one year after they first started dating.

The former Friends star is thought to have first hooked up with the Top Gear producer last June after they met on the BBC car show.

Matt and Aurora finally went public last night.

Aged just 32, Aurora is a whopping 17 years younger than Matt, who is now the frontman of Top Gear, but it doesn’t look like the age gap matters to the pair at all, with the cute couple looking loved up as they made their red carpet debut at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival in New York last night.

Matt was at the film festival to watch a screening of Episodes, the TV show that he stars in alongside Tamsin Greig and Stephen Mangan, however, this will be the last series that he appears in as his Top Gear career continues to go from strength to strength.

Originally drafted in as a co-host to Chris Evans last year, the Beeb were stunned by the huge backlash that Chris received, with the DJ quitting after just one series of the show.

Matt met Aurora on the set of Top Gear last February.

Matt was then asked to take over as the main presenter for the second series and the warm reception that he got from fans ensured that he was asked back for a third time earlier this year.

It is thought that 49-year-old Matt first met Aurora when he joined the Top Gear cast last February, with a source telling The Sun last summer: “This has become a romance.

Aurora Mulligan is a high-flying TV producer.

“Matt spends more time with Aurora than anyone else in the crew and there’s definitely a blossoming relationship there.”

Despite her high-flying career and famous boyfriend, Aurora prefers to stay out of the limelight and keeps her social media pages private.
