It's official. Now everyone go "awwww."
After being spotted grocery shopping and having lunch together near his Bedminster, N.J. home or hiding behind a blond wig while dining out in Manhattan, Longoria broke the news to "Extra" host Mario Lopez.
"Mark and I are, you know, fine. We're happy — just dating," she giggled.
Everyone knows the 37-year old actress has a thing for athletes —he just split with NBA star Tony Parker — but claims she's "a big fan of the Jets because they have the best center in the NFL, Nick Mangold."
Yeah right ... a center. You know Sanchez told her to say that.
Longoria was coy about breaking the the news — and even called Lopez an "a--hole" for holding up a New York Post story about the couple with the headline,"Private Affair" on it. But she finally spilled the beans in front of cheering fans.
Now that Longoria has the 25-year old Sanchez on her fantasy team, she can expect a lot more front page headlines — especially with the Jets.
From one Sunday drama to another, Longoria will find out the the sniping on Wisteria Lane has nothing on the dysfunction at MetLife Stadium.
