Actress Eva Longoria has addressed reports suggesting she's found love with American footballer Mark Sanchez, insisting they are "just dating".

The Desperate Housewives star was recently rumored to have moved on from her on/off relationship with Penelope Cruz's younger brother Eduardo after she was spotted stepping out on a number of low-key dates with New York Jets quarterback Sanchez.

The new couple even managed to get away for a brief vacation in the Caribbean, according to rumors.

And now the lovely Latina, who has been reluctant to share details about her personal life since splitting from basketball ace Tony Parker in 2010, has confirmed the new romance.

Asked about the relationship rumors by TV host pal Mario Lopez during an appearance on his news show Extra, she confessed, "Mark and I are, you know, fine. We're happy just dating."
