Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez stepped out on back-to-back lunch dates in New York City on Thursday, March 30, and Friday, March 31, just as the former Major League Baseball player officially confirmed their relationship on The View Friday.

Alex Rodriguez says he's "having a great time" with new girlfriend Jennifer Lopez. "She just likes simple things", he said.

Beyond family, the new couple also shares a love for the Yankees, according to Rodriquez.

The couple were first revealed to be dating earlier this month and have been spotted together on several occasions since then.

After being linked for several weeks, it seems that Alex Rodriguez has finally made a decision to open up about his romance with Jennifer Lopez. The 47 year old has stayed mum about her new boo, but has been photographed multiple times with him in recent weeks.

Given that they're two extremely famous people in sports and entertainment, I can totally believe that they would have tons of friends in common.
