Eva Longoria confirms she’s dating Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez
Touchdown: “Desperate Housewives” actress Eva Longoria has bagged herself the one of the hottest young quarterbacks in the NFL.
Longoria, 37, confirmed she’s dating Mark Sanchez, a 25-year-old New York Jets player.
“Mark and I are, you know, fine. We’re happy just dating,” Longoria told her pal Mario Lopez, stopping by the magazine show “Extra” to discuss her role as co-chair of President Obama’s reelection campaign (video below).
Despite their chummy status, Lopez didn’t take it easy on Eva — he waved a New York Post at her with a headline suggesting she and the athlete were hooking up. Lopez will probably still land a Christmas card.
Longoria’s last relationship, with Penelope Cruz’s brother Eduardo, ended in June. She was previously married to basketball player Tony Parker.
As for Sanchez: He’s 25 and a prince of New York, so the love interests may be plenty. He’s been linked to Hayden Panettiere and model Kate Upton, and previously dated “Sopranos” star Jamie-Lynn Sigler.
