Alex Rodriguez and girlfriend Kathryne Padgett soak up the sun in Italy

Alex Rodriguez and his girlfriend, Kathryne Padgett, were spotted cozying up on a yacht off the coast of Italy on Wednesday.

The former Yankee slugger, 46, and his fitness competitor girlfriend, 25, were smiling as they looked at something on her phone before taking to the ocean to ride jet skis and paddleboards in Sardinia.

Padgett stunned in a light gray bikini which highlighted her toned physique, while Rodriguez opted for a pop of color with neon yellow swim trunks.

The couple were also joined by NFL player Eric Decker and his wife, Jessie James Decker, who rocked a blue, two-piece swimsuit.

Rodriguez and Padgett certainly aren’t strangers to packing on the PDA in public, having given fans several glimpses into their romance while traveling around Italy.

They first sparked romance rumors in January when the blond beauty joined the former retired slugger at a Green Bay Packers playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers.

However, a source close to the athlete told Page Six at the time that Rodriguez was “a single dude.”

The pair have since been spotted kissing at New York City restaurants and attending an NBA Eastern Conference Finals game in Miami, where an eyewitness told Page Six that the Texas native looked very loved-up with Rodriguez.

“She’s definitely way more touchy than [he is],” the spy shared. “She gets really close to his face while talking and smiling.”

And, last week, the pair were spotted canoodling in Capri, Italy.

Prior to their romance, Rodriguez was engaged to Jennifer Lopez. However, they called things off in March 2021 amid persistent cheating rumors.

He was also previously married to Cynthia Scurtis, with whom he shares daughters Natasha, 17, and Ella, 14.
