What was it about her that he was so fascinated by? Does she have similar interests, or really unique interests/profession etc.?
If he was infatuated with her, it would be strange for him to go to his wife about it. Wouldn’t he be more self conscious about those feelings?
You know your husband better than us though and there are cues you can only pick up on in person. I’d try to hang out with all of them some time so you can get a better read on the situation.

I second tinytimbo’s question. What is it about her is he infatuated with? Sometimes we meet people who are super interesting to us. Maybe they have a cool career, similar interest, or a hobby we also enjoy. IDK…Kinda need more information to give better advice.
You know your partner. Do you honestly feel like there is ill intent with his interest? I think you know the answer that more than any of us here.
And I guess to answer your question, I have never really experienced this in my marriage. My husband and I have mutual friends (men and women) that we both enjoy being around. I never felt weird about my husband enjoying any of our girlfriend’s company or felt he was infatuated with them.
