Josh Groban and Miss Piggy Are Dating, and We're Sure Kermit Isn't Pleased

Oh, how the tables have turned...

Well, well, well. Look what we have here.

Not to stir the mud pot, but there's some seriously well-timed romance afoot in el mundo de los Muppets, and it starts with musician Josh Groban.

Last week, Kermit the Frog himself came out of the felt-lined closet to proclaim he's seeing a new pig. After the demise of his 40-year relationship with chief Muppetess, Miss Piggy, no one was quite sure what the duo were up to — until now.

The new porker in question is Denise, a marketing professional from ABC with whom Kermit has undoubtedly shared many a slightly abrasive snuggle sesh (felt isn't the cuddliest of fabrics, but this is a progressive world — we don't discriminate).

Denise, onlookers noted, bears a striking resemblance to another gorgeous starlet, Game of Thrones' Natalie Dormer. It's no wonder Kermit's smitten.

But how did Groban and Miss Piggy, AKA the most unlikely couple ever, fall for one another? We may have to tune into ABC's The Muppets later this month to find out. The 34-year-old singer-songwriter will make a cameo in one of the first few episodes of the new sitcom, which may be our first peek into the inner workings of Queen Pey's relationship with the younger man.

We can say, however, that the two had already become acquainted by virtue of prior Muppets projects like 2014's Muppets Most Wanted.

The Muppets — and the not-so-skinny on Piggy's new flame — debuts on September 22 on ABC.
