Alex Rodriguez has confirmed his relationship with Jennifer Lopez by gushing about her on TV.

The 41-year-old former baseball star recently started dating Jennifer, 47, and during a TV appearance on "The View", he couldn't resist talking about her, reported People magazine.

When asked about their relationship, he says, "It's obvious. We're having a great time, she's an amazing, amazing girl, and one of the smartest human beings I've ever met and also an incredible mother.

"She just likes simple things. I mean, she's a very, very simple person. Loves family. Is a great sister. Is a great daughter." 

Jennifer has nine-year-old twins Max and Emme with her former husband Marc Anthony, while Alex and his ex Cynthia Scurtis have daughters Natasha, 12 and eight-year-old Ella together.

The pair are believed to have met at one of the singer's shows in Las Vegas last month in February and have been inseparable ever since.

After a trip to the Bahamas together in early March, Alex jetted to Los Angeles recently, where he was spotted with Jennifer at the Bel- Air hotel.

Jennifer and Alex also worked out together at her trainer Gunnar Peterson's gym and spent quality time together at her Bel-Air home.
