Sorry ladies but it's official - Michael Fassbender is off the market.

It has been rumoured for months that the German-born Irish actor has been dating Swedish beauty Alicia Vikander and it certainly looks like they're a couple.

They were spotted enjoying the sunny weather as they wandered around Soho in New York over the weekend. The gorgeous pair couldn't keep their hands off each other as they stopped for a smooch on a street corner.

The couple met while filming historical drama The Light Between the Oceans in Australia last year and were seen enjoying some downtime on the beaches in Sydney before Christmas.

They play husband and wife in the film which is adapted from ML Stedman's best selling novel.

It tells the story of a lighthouse keeper and his wife who live off the coast of Western Australia and raise a baby they rescue from a drifting rowing boat.

Filming wrapped in December and Kerryman Michael (38) has been busy shooting the new Steve Jobs biopic in California while Alicia has been filming in Copenhagen.

Alicia (26) is relatively unknown at the moment but she's set to make her mark on Hollywood this year with a number of high-profile films due out in the coming months.

Her profile has been rising with recent critically-acclaimed performances in sci-fi thriller Ex-Machina opposite Domhanll Gleeson and Seventh Son which is currently in cinemas. She is also set to star in John Wells' long-awaited film, Adam Jones, which is about a top chef who assembles a team to create the best restaurant in the world.

The film, slated for release later this year, also stars Jamie Dornan, Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller and Uma Thurman. She will also play Eddie Redmayne's wife in The Danish Girl which tells the story of the world's first transgender woman.

The young actress has been steadily working for the past few years and she says she's ready for the attention these roles are going to give her.

"Next year, the Oscars will be interesting. If all goes well, I'm going to have three films in contention," she told W Magazine recently.

"I've had many years of working a lot without being in the public eye. And that's been good. But by this time next year, I think things are going to change. I expect to be busy. I'm ready to be a bit more known."

Alicia has previously been linked with fellow Swede Alexander Skarsgard who is best known for his role as vampire Eric Northman in HBO series True Blood.

Meanwhile, Michael was linked to supermodel Naomi Campbell and Zoe Kravtiz before meeting Alicia.
