The two were first linked earlier this year during the Packers’ divisional round playoff game against the 49ers, but neither of them have confirmed any official romance.

With that being said, a source told InTouch at the time: “A-Rod is having fun with Kathryne.

“They’re enjoying each other’s company and he finds her attractive, but after coming out of a four-year relationship with J. Lo, he’s not ready to be in a fully committed relationship with anyone just yet. He’s keeping his options open.”

Most recently, Padgett has been linked to former baseball player A-Rod, who is 46 years old. Kathryne, on the other hand, is 25 years old, according to Intouch Weekly, giving them an age gap of 26 years.

Padgett appears to be a die-hard gym lover, and was even athletically talented in college. Attending Houston’s University of St. Thomas, the 25-year-old was reportedly a midfielder on the school’s soccer team.

Kathryne shares her love for fitness on Instagram, where she’s managed to earn over 11k followers.

Alex Rodriguez’s new rumoured flame follows his split with singer and actress Jennifer Lopez.

The two broke things off in 2021 after four years of dating, stating: “We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so.

“We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another’s children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support.”

Lopez has since announced her engagement to ex-partner Ben Affleck – 18 years after they called off their first wedding.
