Look away Drake, as Jennifer Lopez has got a new man by her side.
Former Texas Rangers star Alex Rodriguez has reportedly swooped the 47-year old off her feet and it seems she couldn’t be happier.
The ex-baseball pro, who also played for the Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees during his successful career, began dating J-Lo just a few weeks ago and things are already hotting up between the duo.
A close insider spoke to People magazine about the latest celebrity romance, saying,
They have been dating for a few weeks. She seems excited. He has been around her family and she really likes that he is a dad. She is aware, though, that he is a ladies’ man too and is being cautious. For now, it’s just fun. She is single and enjoys dating.
And whilst the attractive pair might not have made their relationship exclusive, it seems Jenny from the Block is enjoying the dating life.
Rodriguez, better known as A-Rod, split up from entrepreneur Anne Wojcicki last month after a year long relationship.
He’s also known to have previously dated other Hollywood A-listers, such as Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson.
As for Lopez, her most recent fling was with rapper Drake, but the pair broke things off after saying it was never meant to be anything serious and they were just hanging out.
A source spoke about J-Lo’s bond with Drake; ‘they love hanging out and making music together. She has great respect for him and his talent and he does for her as well.’
Lopez and Rodriguez both have children from previous relationships, which is perhaps making the dating process a lot easier for them.
J-Lo is mom to twins Max and Emma, aged 9, from ex-hubbie Marc Anthony, whilst A-Rod is a dad to daughters Natasha, 12, and Ella, 8, who he had with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis.
Their romance is still in the very early days, but is definitely the new and exciting step that J-Lo needs.
