While Hill, 35, has been spending a lot of time on the East Coast, his new fiancee works for Violet Gray, a beauty company based in Los Angeles.

The couple were first spotted out in public together in New York in August 2018.

Hill bought the property from singer and songwriter Jesse Jo Stark and, according to the LA Times, the estate was once owned by Hollywood star Jean Simmons.

The two-story home sits on just over a quarter acre facing Santa Monica Canyon and is situated at the end of a driveway behind large white wooden gates.
