Ioan Gruffudd and Bianca Wallace have been seen out-and-about for the primary time since he obtained a three-year restraining order against estranged wife Alice Evans.
The Welsh actor, 48, and his girlfriend, 29, walked arm-in-arm as they stepped out to walk their dog in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Ioan had previously won a short lived restraining order against Alice, but on Tuesday, a US judge confirmed harsher restrictions had been put in place, including a ruling stopping Alice from leaking private text messages from their children.

And in his first sighting for the reason that restraining order, Ioan cut an off-the-cuff figure in beige trousers and a white polo shirt, which he teamed with white trainers.
He shielded his eyes with a pair of square sunglasses and styled his brunette locks in a slicked-back style as he walked arm-in-arm along with his girlfriend.
Bianca showed off her lithe physique in a pair of figure-hugging black leggings and a cropped red and white Levi’s T-shirt.

The actress styled her dark tresses loosely in a straight fashion and gave a slight smile as she looked united along with her partner Ioan on the dog walk.
It comes after MailOnline exclusively revealed that Ioan successfully obtained a three-year restraining order against estranged wife Alice Evans, which also bans her from mentioning him on social media.
The Welsh actor hopes the brand new restrictions will end the general public falling out between the pair, whose acrimonious split in March 2021 and consequent slanging matches threatened to overshadow their respective careers.
Ioan had previously won a short lived restraining order against Alice, 54, the mother of his two daughters Ella, 12, and Elsie, eight, in February claiming he was inundated with messages and verbal threats from her.

But on Tuesday, a US judge confirmed harsher restrictions had been put in place, including a ruling stopping Alice from leaking private text messages from their children.
A source said: ‘Ioan had no selection but to up his legal fight over Alice.
‘She had turn into increasingly volatile and seemingly intent on destroying his profession along with her character assassination. He hopes it will put an end to it.’
Ioan was in attendance contained in the LA court to witness the Domestic Violence Restraining Order granted, but Alice didn’t appear.
In recent court documents, Ioan claimed Alice continued to cause him issues and wanted additional provisions added to the present restraining order.

He demanded Alice shouldn’t make any posts on any social media account, ‘including but not limited to Instagram and Twitter accounts, disparaging or harassing [Ioan] or the opposite protected person.’
The opposite person is listed as Ioan’s recent girlfriend, Bianca Wallace, who he began dating shortly after their split.
Plus, he requested Alice to not post his text messages or another communications to the parties’ children, or the kids’s text messages or another communications to Ioan, on any social media account.
He also asked for the judge to order Alice to not contact his employer or make disparaging statements about him to his employers.
Further in court documents, Ioan said for the reason that restraining order was put in place, Alice ‘has used her social media accounts to proceed to harass, threaten, and disturb the peace of each me and my girlfriend, Bianca Wallace.’

Last month, The Vampire Diaries actress Alice shared a screenshot appearing to be between Ioan and certainly one of his daughters, who’s regarded as asking him to sign paperwork in order that she will stay at her school – amid allegations that he stopped paying her fees.
Alice told her 86,000 Instagram followers: ‘You see – I don’t have any money.
‘I gave up my profession because I wanted the love of my life to have an incredible profession and that leaves him being away more often than not.
‘And I gritted my teeth and I got through it. I missed working’ oh hell I missed working’ but I didn’t need a day to go by without seeing my two incredible girls. So their was an upside.’
Calling out Ioan’s alleged spending habits, she continued: ‘He’s STILL attempting to damage my name, filling out petition after petition … daring to say that I’m the ‘bad parent’?
‘(Try his Guardian interview from 2020. Ask my kids. As anybody that knows us. Being called a ‘bad parent’ once I gave up the whole lot for them and do not sleep at night in case and worry about find out how to feed them, check their health, take them to the dentist…. [sic].
Declaration: Ioan went public along with his actress girlfriend Bianca Wallace in October last 12 months and was captioned: ‘Thanks for making me smile again’
‘Those of you who might think ‘well why is she CONTINUING to post on Instagram when his lawyers are going to take her down for it?’ But give it some thought.
‘He’s spending money that ought to have gone to the women education, sports, college, on using a lawyer to gag me.
‘I do not have this money and neither do I feel within the corruption of the TRO to shut anyone up after they’re attempting to say their piece,’ she penned. ‘HE gets to say it. HE get to to lie about me being a foul parent (You could not get farther from the reality.)
‘But me? I get threatened with fines, with jail if I tell MY TRUTH about what is basically happening. And all I actually have is social media because I can not afford a lawyer. Is not that a microcosm of wealthy and poor America? I’ll likely go to court for posting this. (One other example of the best way he treats his children).’
Alice added: ‘He may be lauded for doing the best thing. For going through the courts. He may get to take my kids away from me (good luck with that dude).’
The previous month in June, Alice claimed she was ‘completely out of cash for food and bills’ while sharing a video of daughter Elsie.
She wrote: ‘Attempting to hold all of it together whilst being threatened, completely out of cash for food and bills and just discovered anyone tried to interrupt down our outside door last night!
‘However it’s all price it for this (and the one who doesn’t need to be photographed.’
Ioan and Alice met on the set of 102 Dalmatians in 2000 and married seven years later.
The Welsh actor filed for divorce in March 2021 citing irreconcilable differences as the rationale behind their split.
The document, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on March 1, revealed the previous couple separated on Recent Yr’s Day – a month before they went public with their relationship status.
Ioan went Instagram official with recent girlfriend Bianca last October with a post saying: ‘Thanks for making me smile again.’
Alice reacted furiously, ranting: ‘So it seems my husband, after two years of telling me I’m a foul person and I’m not exciting and he now not desires to have sex with me . . . has been in a relationship for 3 years behind my back.’
