The widower of the woman accidentally gunned down by Alec Baldwin on the set of “Rust” was spotted cozying up to an apparent new flame in Los Angeles this week.

Producer Matthew Hutchins, 38, was still wearing his wedding ring as he hugged and kissing the woman at Griffith Observatory in the city on Monday, eighteen months after his wife Halyna Hutchins, 42, was fatally shot on the New Mexico film set on Oct. 21, 2021.

Speaking to The Post Tuesday, sources identified Matthew’s new love interest as Katie Flynn.

According to her LinkedIn profile, Flynn is a video production coordinator at the observatory who graduated with a degree in meteorology from Central Michigan University in 2015.

Matthew and Flynn appeared smitten as they strolled around the scenic overlook while frequently leaning in to kiss and embrace each other.

Hutchins could not be immediately reached for a comment Tuesday.

The pair were spotted sharing a kiss.

News of Matthew’s apparent relationship comes a few days after criminal charges against Baldwin over the accidental on-set shooting of Halyna were dropped and cinematography to complete the belaegured western movie resumed at a new film set in Montana. 

“30 Rock” actor Baldwin, 65, previously pleaded not guilty to one count of involuntary manslaughter. He also repeatedly denied any wrongdoing in the fatal shooting, which happened as he reheared a quick-draw scene where he shot toward the camera. He maintained he never pulled the trigger, but the prop gun still went off — firing a real bullet which fatally struck Halyna and injured director Joel Souza.

Baldwin had previously also settled with Matthew for an undisclosed amount in Oct. 2022. As part of the agreement, Matthew will be an executive producer on “Rust.”

Matthew was expected to testify against Baldwin in the criminal case. It is unclear if he will take the stand against armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, who is still facing involuntary manslaughter charges.

Matthew previously opened up about the aftermath of his wife’s death in an interview with “Today” co-host Hoda Kotb in Feb. 2022.

“The idea that the person holding the gun and causing it to discharge is not responsible is absurd to me,” the grieving husband told Kotb of Baldwin’s insistence that he did not cause the gun to fire.

“Watching [Baldwin’s ABC interview], I just felt so angry, just so angry to see him talk about her death so publicly in such a detailed way and then to not accept any responsibility after having just described killing her,” he continued.
