Scoop: New couple alert — J.Lo and A-Rod!

Page Six already has the coined the name: J-Rod!

Or is it A.Lo?

Former Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are dating.

A source said of the new power couple, “They have been seeing each other for a few months, and were together in L.A. this past weekend. They are really into each other because they have so much in common — from their Latin roots, to their love of New York, and their kids.”

He apparently was seen backstage at one of Lopez’s Las Vegas show.

Page Six has reported that Rodriguez and his most recent girlfriend, Silicon Valley CEO Anne Wojcicki, broke up after dating for just under a year, and Lopez reportedly was seeing rapper Drake — although she denied it — but that lasted only a couple of months.

Reps for Rodriguez and Lopez (who liked A-Rod on Instagram on Wednesday), didn’t comment.

Meanwhile, Us notes that the baseball hunk/Fox Sports analyst has dated Madonna, Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz and Torrie Wilson and was married to Cynthia Scurtis for six years before they split in 2008. (He and Scurtis share Natasha, 12, and Ella, 8.)

Lopez’s exes include Cris Judd, Ojani Noa and Marc Anthony, father of 9-year-old twins Max and Emme,

In other celebrity couple news, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck apparently won’t file for divorce; and Scarlett Johansson‘s ex Romain Dauriac has asked her to withdraw her divorce filing for the sake of their 2-year-old daughter Rose Dorothy.
