Dating: Alex Wagner and Sam Kass. The White House chef, 33, and the MSNBC host, 35, have been quietly dating for the past year or so. He’s the heartthrob behind the first lady’s White House garden and “Let’s Move” initiative who just landed at No. 3 on the Hill’s “Most Beautiful” list (where he reported his relationship status as “private”); she’s the gorgeous D.C. native/political analyst with her own show on MSNBC.

How did two such public pretty people avoid the spotlight? By keeping everything discreet and low key: The two were spotted together at the White House Correspondents’ parties, but no red carpets or public PDAs, so they blended into the crowds.
