Alex Rodriguez finally stepped up to the plate and confirmed he’s dating Jennifer Lopez. The former Yankees star broke his silence about his relationship with Jenny from the Block during Friday’s episode of The View.
“We’re having a great time. She’s an amazing, amazing girl,” Rodriguez told the panel. “One of the smartest human beings I’ve ever met, and also an incredible mother.”
Rodriguez — who was first linked to the pop icon earlier this month — didn’t shy away from answering questions about his new romance and even made it clear he thinks he hit a home run.
“She was a track star in high school and junior high, so she’s an awesome, awesome athlete … She just likes simple things. I mean, she’s a very, very simple person. Loves family. She’s a great sister, a great daughter.”
But this isn’t Rodriguez’s first high-profile relationship. After divorcing his wife of six years (Cynthia Scurtis) in 2008, he dated Madonna, Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz.
Before the new romance entered the limelight, Lopez had been linked to hip-hop star Drake. The 47-year-old has stayed mum about her new boo, but has been photographed multiple times with him in recent weeks.
