Looks like Jennie Garth isn't the only one dipping her toes back into the dating pool -- her estranged husband, Peter Facinelli, stepped out with a new lady on his arm on Thursday.

The 38-year-old "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" star, who split from Jennie in March, was photographed having dinner and later holding hands with actress Jaimie Alexander, 28, in New York City on Thursday, ahead of Peter's "Twilight Saga" film screening.
