Martha Stewart made headlines last month when it was revealed she was quarantining with her gardener, telling Town & Country magazine that she and Ryan McCallister spent 45 days together in isolation.

But now fans are buzzing about a new man that might be spending time with the 78-year-old businesswoman.

Stewart shared an Instagram post on Tuesday of a shirtless man, wearing a face mask, in what appears to be her swimming pool. In the caption, she writes: "Which do you prefer? Without the Panama hat or with ? The mask stays." The second photo in the post indeed shows the man wearing a Panama hat.

A little Internet research reveals that the mystery man is actually photographer Douglas Friedman, an apparent friend of Stewart. He was mentioned in a 2019 New York Times profile of Stewart and her best friend/brand manager Kevin Sharkey. Additionally, she also mentioned Friedman in a 2019 blogpost about the holiday season.
