PORT CHARLOTTE — Rays third baseman Evan Longoria really is living the dream: Fame, fortune, great job — and now a model girlfriend.

Longoria confirmed to the Times on Tuesday he is dating Jaime Edmondson, Playboy magazine's Miss January 2010.

"Yes, we are dating," he said. "It's been a secret for long enough; it's not really been a secret, but nobody has asked about it."

Edmondson, a 33-year-old former Miami Dolphins cheerleader and two-time contestant on The Amazing Race reality show, has certainly attracted plenty of attention during her career.

But, Longoria, 26, said, "I don't even think of her like that. She's actually more informed on sports. She did a fantasy football blog the whole year, and she does a show on Sirius satellite radio. So it's pretty cool to be able to talk to somebody on that level outside of the whole modeling thing."

Longoria and Edmondson have been seen together in public recently, at Disney's Animal Kingdom and a Lightning game, and have exchanged Twitter messages, leading to speculation they were dating.
