It comes as Damian and Alison confirmed their romance as they cuddled up together at the private members’ club The House of KOKO’s summer party earlier this week.

The Homeland actor’s new romance comes 14 months after he was devastated by his beloved wife Helen’s death – but revealed how his late wife had urged him to find love again in a moving eulogy.

And although he appears ready to embark on a new relationship with Alison, Damian kept his wedding ring firmly on during their latest outing.

The duo was joined by The Kills guitarist Jamie Hince, the ex-husband of Kate Moss, as well as Ellie Goulding, film director Darren Strowger and singer Dionne Bromfield.

Damian recently got the seal of approval from his new rock singer girlfriend’s mother who says she can’t wait to meet the Homeland star.

The pair met through friends while hanging out in London and have grown increasingly fond of each other, Alison’s mother Vivian, 76, has revealed.

Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com from her home in Florida, Vivian, 76, said: ‘I don’t know how much flak I’m going to get for all of this but of course we are excited for her.

They have mutual friends. I don’t know exactly how they met but I’m fine with it. If she’s happy, we are happy. I’m yet to meet him but certainly I’d like to.’

Alison and father-of-two Lewis were first photographed together last month at a swanky fundraising party for London’s National Gallery.

A fellow passenger who spotted the pair traveling to the event by train told The Mail on Sunday the two looked ‘100 per cent romantically involved – like they were on a hot date.’

They were seen again last week at the Serpentine Gallery’s annual summer party, one of the highlights of the British capital’s social season.

And this past weekend the loved-up pair were once more snapped at the British Formula One Grand Prix at Silverstone, with Alison taking to Instagram afterwards to write: ‘The absolute thrill. I’m still floating… at 200 miles per hour.’

Alison grew up on Florida’s east coast, where her father Mark, 73, owns a car wholesale business appropriately named Alison Auto Brokers.

Vivian said her daughter – who has performed under the stage name Baby Ruthless – was into music at ‘nine months,’ played the drums in sixth grade, and had formed her own punk band by the time she was 11 or 12.

But she insisted that Alison should not be pigeonholed as a punk rock singer and was every bit as intellectual and accomplished as Eton-educated Lewis.

‘She’s not an easy one to sum up. She’s a complicated, beautiful lady, and very intelligent,’ Vivian told DailyMail.com.

She’s so talented in so many areas that it constantly surprises us. It amazes us, actually. We are very proud.’

Damian added in the social media post: ‘She died as she lived. Fearlessly. God we love her and know how lucky we are to have had her in our lives. She blazed so brightly. Go now, Little One, into the air.’
