Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe spent the weekend together in New York, not for a romantic rendezvous but to support two great causes for charity. According to Just Jared, the "Outlander" stars were spotted rubbing elbows with the events manager of World Child Cancer, Lisa Fernandes at the Cocktail Party Fundraiser held over the weekend. Aside from Lisa Fernandes, Heughan and Balfe were also seen chatting with the CEO of Cahonas Scotland, Ritchie Marshall. The Cocktail Party Fundraiser aimed to hit two birds with one stone, or in this case, two charities with one event.

The World Child Cancer aims to give each child an equal access and opportunity to the best cancer treatment and care. Meanwhile, Cahonas Scotland aims to raise awareness about male cancer and promote early detections.

Fans of Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan appreciated the philanthropic deeds of the "Outlander" stars, who, despite their busy schedule, graciously made time to attend such charitable events. As expected, their appearance in the Cocktail Party Fundraiser over the weekend added fire to the speculations that they are a couple in real life.

A special kind of bond

The on-screen chemistry of Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe as Jamie and Claire in "Outlander" is off the charts and it's not surprising to see how passionate the fans are in hoping and wanting to see them become a couple in real life.

However, according to Pop Sugar, Balfe and Heughan are not a couple in real life. In fact, the 37-year old actor is reportedly dating actress MacKenzie Mauzy.

Nevertheless, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe acknowledge the fact that they have a special bond that developed as they took on the role of Jamie and Claire respectively.

In fact, whenever they are interviewed whether for a magazine or a TV show, fans can't help but notice how they gush about each other so endearingly.

Lucky to have each other

According to Pop Sugar, Caitriona Balfe has expressed in several interviews how lucky she feels that she has met someone like Sam Heughan. The 38-year old actress also revealed that she and her "Outlander" leading man are really great friends.

When they first met, Balfe revealed that she instantly felt a great chemistry between them. She also added that while she was fidgety and nervous during their first meeting, Heughan's calm and nice demeanor eventually put her at ease. Heughan also has nothing but good words for Balfe. In fact, he shared in an interview that being apart from his "Outlander" leading lady takes quite a toll on him.
