He also happens to be entering relatively uncharted territory, because nearly all the smokin' hot celebrity-athlete couples out there consist of a female celeb and a male sportsman, one exception being sport-on-sport (though that's not really the same either), such as now-retired soccer stud Mia Hamm and her hubby, now-retired MLB star Nomar Garciaparra.
Another exception: Serena Williams dating Common years ago. That sounds as though it would have been awfully hot. (Or if the rumor linking her to Colin Farrell was true. Can you imagine?) So basically any time Serena dated someone you've heard of.
But sexy is sexy, and if Drake and Serena become an official thing then consider us way too excited for next year's ESPYs, let alone the U.S. Open, which starts next week.
Inspired by all of the bottled-up potential hotness if Drarena goes public, we are serving up 14 more hot celeb-athlete couples whose collective fire is currently burning:

Victoria & David Beckham: The Spice Girl turned fashion icon and the soccer legend/underwear model are the paragon to which all others must be judged.
Julianne Hough & Brooks Laich: The hockey player just put a ring on the Dancing With the Stars judge and we wish them the best.

Kate Upton & Justin Verlander: The Detroit Tigers' All-Star pitcher has the kind of confidence a guy needs to date an It girl who looks like That.
Olivia Munn & Aaron Rodgers: So many football stars are married by the time they show up to their first pro training camp, so by waiting till he's 31 to get serious, the Super Bowl-winning Green Bay Packers quarterback might just know what he's doing.

Ciara & Russell Wilson: They're relatively new to the field, so it's hard to say what the future beholds. But they're enjoying VIP dating activities such as the White House Correspondents Dinner and joining Taylor Swift on stage, so they're definitely making the most of their time together. Enjoy, you two!
Nick Young & Iggy Azalea: May Swaggy P get the "Fancy" rapper to the altar and not drop the ball (either on the court or off).
Kristin Cavallari & Jay Cutler: The designer and lifestyle maven is expecting her third child with the Chicago Bears QB. These two have got a game plan and they're sticking to it!

Gabrielle Union & Dwyane Wade: The couple that goes monochromatic together...

Jessie James & Eric Decker: The only thing hotter than the New York Jets wide receiver holding a football is him holding baby daughter Vivianne. The sweet duo have a son on the way as well.
Carrie Underwood & Mike Fisher: The singer hunted down a Nashville Predator to call her own and being a hockey wife (as well as a country music mega-star) seems to suit her.

Joanna Garcia-Swisher & Nick Swisher: The actress and her baseball player hubby were hot in Cleveland and will surely be even hotter in Atlanta after his trade to the Braves.
Khloé Kardashian & James Harden: Always a good sign if your new man pops for the extra guac at Chipotle. Especially if he's making more than $10 million a year with the Houston Rockets.
Shakira & Gerard Piqué: This family just gets more adorable the longer you look at them.

Gisele Bündchen & Tom Brady: Oh, right. Them. The other epitome of hotness to which mere mortals can't hold a candle.
