Eva Longoria has confirmed she is now dating Mark Sanchez. Assuming you don't know who he is either, he's a New York Jets quarterback, who is 12 years her junior at age 25.

The 37-year-old actress confirmed to television show 'Extra' yesterday. when probed on the matter by host and 'good friend' Mario Lopez.

In response she said: "You're an a**hole. No, Mark and I are, you know, fine. We're happy just dating."

To recap, Eva split from Eduardo Cruz - younger brother of Penelope Cruz - in June and their romance was revealed in February 2011.

She finalised her divorce from basketball player Tony Parker in January 2011 after he was caught cheating.

Now, let's look at Mark's track record: he has been previously linked to actress Hayden Panettiere and Jamie-Lynn Sigler. He was most recently rumoured to be dating Victoria's Secret model Kate Upton.

Speaking of his girlfriend checklist, Mark told GQ magazine in last year: "I can't help but want somebody that's, I don't know, athletic. Family is big. My mum has to love her. I mean, love her. Somebody who can handle all this... because I'm still learning. Cynically, I think, 'Okay, how is this person going to help me with a Super Bowl?'

Eva would have a lot in common with your mother, she's clearly a gym bunny, she can certainly teach you some new tricks, not to mention tuck you up each night before the Super Bowl with a cup of bubbly milk.
