Jamie Foxx found the "perfect" match in girlfriend Alyce Huckstepp, sources tell PEOPLE.

The actor, 56, is currently "enjoying his good health" after experiencing a health emergency a year ago, a source tells PEOPLE. A big part of the Oscar winner’s well-being, according to another insider, is Huckstepp, who “couldn’t be nicer or more perfect for him.”

“Alyce is a sweetie, a great girl,” says the insider. Thanks in part to her, “Jamie is doing incredibly well.”

First spotted in public together at a Malibu restaurant and confirmed as a couple in August 2023, Foxx and Huckstepp have kept their relationship out of the spotlight. In September, an actor on Foxx’s BetMGM commercial reported that Huckstepp was visiting on set and “seemed cozy” with the star.

The source agrees that Huckstepp is a “great” and “loyal” presence in Foxx’s life who “has been there for him” in the wake of his health issues.

“Jamie still sees Alyce even though he is really busy working,” says the source. “Jamie is a social guy, he likes to be around his friends, he has to be busy doing all kinds of different things.”

The “bona fide entrepreneur” is “gung ho” about work and “likes his freedom in general,” the source tells PEOPLE. “He also has to be busy. He loves it.”
