Alex Rodriguez is confirming his new relationship in true Hollywood fashion—a red carpet debut.

The New York Yankees designated hitter arrived at the 2016 Met Gala tonight in New York City alongside his girlfriend and tech CEO Anne Wojcicki, which marks their first public appearance together since rumors started swirling that a romance was brewing between these two.

The athlete looked handsome in a tailored black and white tux, while his leading lady stunned in a white gown that included intricate detailing on the bodice and a high slit. She finished her look by loosely pulling her tresses back to flaunt her large teardrop earrings.

Wojcicki is the CEO and co-founder of billion-dollar personal genomics analytics start-up 23andMe, and the ex-wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin, whom she divorced in June 2015.

Rodriguez split with his ex, former professional wrestler Torrie Wilson, a year ago after three years of dating.

The 42-year-old Silicon Valley biologist and mother of two was spotted out and about with the MLB in recent months, including the Vanity Fair Super Bowl party in San Francisco back in February, which sparked the dating reports.

More recently, the new pair were seen having a nice dinner at a steakhouse with friends in Tampa, Fla., in March, where A-Rod was for spring training.
