Kitty Spencer and Lewis were seen leaving The Mark hotel

It was only when their ride showed up that Spencer left the hotel’s lobby and hopped in the car.

“Once Michael spotted their Uber, Kitty came out,” an onlooker told the Daily Mail. “Both kept their heads down and walked quickly to the car.”

As Lewis and Spencer were heading toward the car, Princess Diana’s niece put her hand on her possible boyfriend’s shoulder. It’s not exactly a confirmation of a relationship but it points to the two being more than friends.

Does Michael Lewis have any children?

Yes, Lewis is the father of three children. All of his children are older than his possible girlfriend, Spencer. She’s in her late twenties while his kids are in their thirties.

“I do feel like I sort of snuck through the back door and no one’s noticed yet. That’s the feeling I get, especially at shows,” she told Harper’s Bazaar about her modeling career. “I keep thinking that this is potentially short term and a really exciting moment, so I’m trying to embrace it for what it is,” she added. “And then when it does end, just being grateful because it was something I never imagined in the first place.”

As for Lewis, his family made a name for themselves in South Africa heading up a clothing retailer there.
