Alex, 41, was spotted cosying up to Jennifer, 47, backstage at one of her ‘All I Have’ residency shows in Las Vegas last month, and they’ve also been hanging out together in Miami while she records her new album, according to reports.

A source told PageSix: “They have been seeing each other for a few months, and were together in LA this past weekend. They are really into each other because they have so much in common – from their Latin roots, to their love of New York, and their kids.’

Adding weight to the rumour, the actress ‘liked’ Alex’s Instagram post on Wednesday about his new role with Fox Sports, but don’t be surprised if the pair keep it low key on social media over the coming months as they’re reportedly both keen to take things slow. 

An insider told E! News: “This is very, very new. It’s not serious at all. J-Lo is just dating.

“Jennifer and Alex are both not looking for a relationship, just a good light-hearted time. They are on the exact same page.”

The US superstar once sang ‘Love Don’t Cost a Thing’, and it’s a good job that’s the case as both Jennifer and Alex have recently come out of high-profile relationships.

The MLB star called time on his one-year romance with entrepreneur Anne Wojcicki last month, whereas the ‘Feel the Light’ singer had been linked with Canadian rapper Drake until earlier this year.

The newly single pair are also both parents. A-Rod shares two children, daughters Natasha, 12, and Ella, 8, with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis, while J-Lo has eight-year-old twins Max and Emme with her ex-husband Marc Anthony.
