They are boyfriend and girlfriend, and they want the whole world to know it.
Following Eva Longoria, 37, confirming she is dating New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, 25, last Thursday, the new couple was photographed looking all loved-up as they held hands during while leaving the Ritz-Carlton on Friday night.
The Desperate Housewives actress shared a dinner date with her professional athlete hunk – whose 12 years her junior – at Daniel restaurant in New York City.
For their romantic outing, Longoria wore a little body-hugging back dress and 6-inch heels, while Sanchez looked dapper in a navy blue suit.
The actress-turned-political activist was made to reveal her dating status with the NFL star during her appearance last week on EXTRA, alongside her longtime friend Mario Lopez.
Lopez candidly asked her about the dating rumors surrounding Longoria and Sanchez.
"You're an a--hole," Longoria jokingly said. "No, Mark and I are, you know, fine. We're happy just dating."
Following her divorce from San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker in January 2011, Longoria started to date Eduardo Cruz – Oscar-winner Penelope Cruz’ brother – but they went their separate ways in June.
Early this month, Longoria and Sanchez were spotted having dinner with a group of friends near his home in Bedminster, New Jersey.
