According to recent reports, baseball slugger Alex Rodriguez - who went 0-for-4 with a strikeout last night at Fenway Park - has been smashing home runs off the field with Kate Hudson more often than on it with the New York Yankees.
Not everyone is thrilled with this new, sexy couple however. Kate's mother, Goldie Hawn, has reportedly cautioned Kate about the new relationship.
Kate was first linked to the baseball star last month and both are said to be “somewhat serious” about the relationship - with A-Rod introducing the actress to his pals (which he apparently has) and Kate attending a bunch of his recent games.
But a source close to the family has said that Goldie Hawn is worried that the romance will go the same as her previous relationships since splitting from husband Chris Robinson, with whom she has a son, Ryder, in the summer of 2006.
Alex Rodriguez is batting a lackluster .238 so far this MLB season, but with his conquest of Kate Hudson, he's proving himself a prime time player just the same.
“Goldie feels it’s time Kate left the dating scene for a while," says a source. “Kate’s had a string of boyfriends since her divorce from Chris and it’s always the same pattern - she falls hard and fast, then gets bored or has her heart broken.
“Goldie hates the idea of seeing Kate getting hurt again.”
Over the past three years, Kate Hudson has dated Lance Armstrong, Owen Wilson and Dax Shepard, among others. Last year, A-Rod’s wife Cynthia Rodriguez filed for a divorce on the grounds of his “spiritual affair” with Madonna.
Madge later dumped him for a physical affair with Jesus Luz, but still claims credit for elevating his celebrity status and enabling him to bag Hudson.
