Eva Longoria has confirmed that she is indeed dating NFL star quarter back Mark Sanchez, who plays for the New York Jets, after she was quizzed about their romance on television show Extra this Thursday (September 13th).
The Desperate Housewives beauty told the show's host and her good friend Mario Lopez the news, after he questioned her, jokingly responding to the inquisition by saying, "You're an a**hole. No, Mark and I are, you know, fine," adding, "We're happy just dating."
The actress, 37, showed that age is no concern to her either as the American football is 12 years her junior at age 25. Longoria has a history of opting for the younger gentleman, with her last beau Eduardo Cruz, the brother of Penelope Cruz, ten years younger than her at 27-years-old. Her former husband, Tony Parker, with whom she enjoyed a four-year marriage, was seven years younger than Eva. The two split in January last year after it had emerged that he had cheated on his wife.
Sanchez is no stranger to dating A-Listers, having previously been linked with Hayden Panettiere and Jamie-Lynn Sigler. He was most recently rumoured to be dating Victoria's Secret model Kate Upton, before his romance with Eva went public.
