Ever since Joe DiMaggio married Marilyn Monroe, the New York Yankees have flirted with Hollywood.
The latest flirtation, between slugger Alex Rodriguez and actress Cameron Diaz, appears to be heating up. This past weekend, Diaz spent time with A-Rod and his daughters, 6-year-old Natasha and two-year-old Ella, in Cabo, Mexico.
Diaz cozied up poolside with Rodriguez's daughters while wearing a skin-tight white dress and one of her infamous skimpy bikinis. The Yankees star reportedly sat back, watching the girls having fun.
Though they have never officially announced they were dating, the couple has been linked since spring. They reportedly split in October but reunited the following month. During a steamy Thanksgiving getaway, also in Mexico, they were seen taking turns hosing off each other's rock-hard abs after a swim in the ocean. Earlier this month, they attended the wedding of Rodriguez's teammate Nick Swisher to sitcom star Joanna Garcia.
Any suggestion that a Diaz-Rodriguez wedding will follow, in light of the actress spending time with the slugger's daughters, is certainly premature.
At 38, Diaz, who dated Justin Timberlake for four years, has shown she's in no hurry to get married. And Rodriguez, 35, whose six-year marriage to Cynthia Scurtis -- the mother of his children -- ended in scandal in 2008 after he was linked to Madonna, seems to be enjoying the dating life. In 2009, he dated actress Kate Hudson, making headlines for their constant PDAs, reportedly abundant sex life and the golden-haired actress' presence at Yankee games.
