Jenny Slate has praised her mysterious "dreamy boyfriend" for supporting her online shopping addiction.

The 35-year-old actress is believed to have rekindled her romance with former partner and Hollywood hunk Chris Evans - whom she previously dated for almost a year until their split in February this year - and although she has yet to confirm the rumours, she did take to Twitter to praise her mystery man.

She wrote: "My boyfriend does many dreamy&generous things but number 1 in my mind right now is how he celebrates my new turtlenecks/let's me show him my online shopping spoils & cheers me on

"Number one in my mind just changed to shame re: "lets" vs "let's" ...wait wait no "turtleneck support in my partnership" joy is back. It's T-necks again. (sic)"

The tweet comes after Jenny and 36-year-old Chris - who met whilst on the set of 'Gifted' - took to their social media accounts last month to share a series of flirty tweets with one another.

Chris wrote: "The theme song to Mash stresses me out. The Pavlovian response is that it's time to go to bed and I probably haven't done my homework," and Jenny replied: "Probably haven't"???? Cmon, Christopher. Have you done your homework or haven't you? It's 7pm and you've had the whoooole weekend. Cmon."

Chris then sent a flirty tweet back, asking Jenny to "cut class" with him.

He wrote: "How's your handwriting? Can you write me a note? Let's cut class!" and Jenny replied: "This is terrifying and exhilarating. Meet me behind the gym after science. I have shark bites."

Prior to their flirty exchange, the pair had been spotted together in Atlanta on a double date with Robert Downey Jr and his wife Susan.

Jenny and Chris' relationship came to an end earlier this year due to conflicting schedules, however, they have remained close and often gush about each other in interviews.

'Captain America' star Chris said in March: "She's my favourite human. She's the best. I've never ever ever met someone in my life who has a mastery of the English language the way she does.

"She'll give you one sentence and there's no fat to it. You're like, 'You just chose such an unbelievable collection of words that beautifully articulate what you say.'

"It's like an art form talking with her, because the visuals associated with her expression are just so colourful.

She's so vulnerable, so honest, so interested in other people more than herself, she's incredibly compassionate, there's just nothing to not love about her."

And Jenny gave Chris similar praise, as in April she called him a "delight".

She said: "He's just an absolutely, really giving performer and a wonderful actor.

"It's a delight, a total delight."
