While they may be keeping things casual for now, their steamy birthday post suggests things could be heating up.
In the world of football, Joe Burrow has been making waves as the Cincinnati Bengals’ quarterback. Not only did he lead his team to the Super Bowl, but he’s also been winning hearts with his dashing good looks. Sorry ladies, he’s been dating his college sweetheart Olivia Holzmacher since 2017.
Lionel Messi, the Argentinian soccer star, is not only a tough competitor on the field but also a super-dad to his three sons. And Neymar Jr., the Brazilian soccer pro, has been scoring goals and stealing hearts throughout his career. He recently welcomed a newborn daughter with his girlfriend.
Heung-Min Son, the South Korean forward, has been ranked as one of the best male footballers in the world. While he’s currently single, he’s focused on his career and plans to settle down after retiring from the field.
In the world of tennis, Grigor Dimitrov is serving up some hot shots and good looks. And Matteo Berrettini made history in 2022 as the first man born in the 1990s to reach the quarter-finals in all four major tournaments.

Jimmy Butler, the Miami Heat small forward, is not only crushing it on the court but also has some new career goals: recording a country album. Talk about a double threat!
And last but certainly not least, Shohei Ohtani, the Los Angeles Angels star, has earned his nickname “Shotime” with his impressive skills both on offense and defense.
