    The first photos of Kermit the Frog with his new love interest, Denise, have been released.

    Many were shocked, even saddened in early August 2015 when one of the most iconic couples in Hollywood announced they would split. 

    Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy called it quits after decades as an item

    But now, less than a month after their conscious uncoupling, Kermit apparently has a new love interest.

    The Muppets' star frog has been seen with a new pig named Denise, who People Magazine identified as a top marketing executive at ABC. Kermit and Piggy will appear in "The Muppets," an ABC series set to premier on Sept. 22.

    Kermit's move to date another pig may come as a shock to some after he released a statement in early August about the break up with Miss Piggy that seemed to disparage porcine relationships

    "It can be tough to work with your ex," Kermit said, according to People Magazine. "It can be tough to be the executive producer on your ex’s late-night TV show, especially when your ex is a pig. I don’t know whether any of you have ever dated pigs."

    Miss Piggy, meanwhile, has a new love interest all her own. Liam Hemsworth posted a photo to Instagram on Monday that showed the actor staring lovingly into Miss Piggy's eyes. He captioned the photo: Spent Friday with the most beautiful girl in the world. Kermit, #SorryNotSorry. #TheMuppets #MissPiggy.
