Stop us if you've heard this one before: Alex Rodriguez has a new lady in his life.
What isn't, however, is the woman in question.
According to Emily Smith of Page Six, the New York Yankees superstar is currently dating Anne Wojcicki, a Yale graduate and co-founder and CEO of 23andMe, a genetic research firm. She's also the ex-wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin.
But No. 13 isn't intimidated by her mind, status or fortune (somewhere in the neighborhood of billions of dollars). In fact, a source told Smith that A-Rod has described her as "interesting, inspirational and very smart."
He supported Wojcicki during her appearance at a satellite event for the Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting, dined with her in Tampa, Florida, during a spring training trip and the pair was even spotted together at Graydon Carter's pre-Super Bowl party.
Despite already drawing some attention, Smith's source described the couple as "very new," saying they've been on "a few dates."
Could this be the start of something big? An evolution in A-Rod?
One thing is for certain: Rodriguez's 40s—and the maturity, responsibility and settling-down sentiments entailed—have finally kicked in.
