This week Kristen Stewart’s mother nonchalantly confirmed her daughter’s relationship with Alicia Cargile, and it seems that the two are now in a romantic relationship together.

The young Cargile is Stewart’s personal assistant and when speaking to the Sunday Mirror this week Stewart’s mother, Jules Stewart, talked about the young couple’s relationship when off business hours.

“She’s my daughter, I’m just her mom so she knows I would accept her choices,” she said. “I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her. What’s not to accept? She’s a lovely girl.”

Jules Stewart spoke with the publication about the relationship only briefly, clarifying that she has no issues with her famous daughter dating a woman.

“I feel like people need to be free to love whoever they want. I accept my daughter loves women and men. It’s OK to be who you are in my world. We all choose our friends so we should be free to choose our lovers,” she said.

Stewart’s professional career has been on a consistent upward trend over the last few years, with the actor nailing high-profile roles and wowing critics with her indie and foreign film choices. Stewart’s next feature to hit theaters is “American Ultra,” a film she will star in with Jesse Eisenberg.
