Alex Rodriguez confirms relationship with Jennifer Lopez (vid)

Alex Rodriguez finally confirmed what has been long suspected: He’s involved in a relationship with Jennifer Lopez.

The retired slugger-turned-FOX MLB analyst was serving as a panelist on “The View” when he copped to the budding romance.

“She’s an amazing, amazing girl,” Rodriguez said of Lopez, whom he’s been rumored to be dating for about a month. “One of the smartest human beings I’ve ever met, and also an incredible mother.”

Both A-Rod and Lopez have children from previous relationships. Rodriguez has two children, Natasha Alexander, 12, and Ella Alexander, 8, from a previous marriage. Lopez has twins, son Maximilian David and daughter Emme Maribel, 9, from her marriage to Marc Anthony.

Rodriguez, later in the show, couldn’t help but gush over his new girlfriend.

“It’s obvious, we’ve been having a great time,” he said. “… 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.”

Rumors of a romance between the two mega-stars have been circulating throughout the month of March. While the supercouple avoided confirming a romance, they didn’t avoid being seen together, either.

It goes without saying that both Rodriguez, 41, and Lopez, 47, have had their fair share of high-profile relationships. It will be interesting to see how things progress with the power couple now known as J-Rod.
