— -- Alex Rodriguez finally confirmed that he's dating Jennifer Lopez after weeks of speculation.

Under direct questioning, he told "The View" co-hosts Friday, "It's obvious. We've been having a great time...she's an amazing, amazing girl, one of the smartest human beings I've ever met, and she's an incredible mother."

When pressed to reveal something about the singer that fans don't already know, the former Yankee offered, "She just likes simple things. I mean she's a very very simple person, loves family, is a great sister, is a great daughter."

"View" co-host Sarah Haines then pressed Rodriguez for more dirt, demanding to know, "What's her guilty pleasure, eating-wise? Make me feel better about my food choices!"

After noting that Lopez, 47, would "kill him" if he said too much, A-Rod spilled that her weaknesses are chocolate-chip cookies and chocolate-chip ice cream.

JLo, who shares twins Max and Emme with her ex-husband Marc Anthony, was most recently rumored to be dating rapper Drake, but she denied they were together romantically.

The star's most recent confirmed relationship was with dancer Casper Smart, whom she dated on and off from 2011 through 2016.
