Love is in the air for past American Idol contestants.
We've already reported on the validity to celebrity gossip rumors that Carrie Underwood is dating Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
Now, it appears as though Kellie Pickler is following in the Idol champion's dating footsteps: not only has she bagged a new boy, but he's also a professional athlete.
The country singer has reportedly won the heart of Nashville Predators hockey star Jordin Tootoo, admitting to Us Weekly that "we've been seeing each other since January, but we kept it under wraps."
This would mean that Tootoo has gotten a first-hand look - and feel - of Pickler's supposedly fake boobs. Perhaps he can now bond with Spencer Pratt over what it's like to fondle such enhanced cleavage.
The romance began when Tootoo invited the singer - who appeared on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show on May 14 and refused to confirm or deny rumors that she had the aforementioned breast augmentation surgery - to one of his games.
"I am this country bumpkin and he's an Eskimo," says Pickler, who plans to visit his central Canada hometown this summer. "I'm going to build an igloo!"
Well ... okay then.
In other Jordin news, Jordin Sparks sang like a true American Idol champion last night. Fans should prepare to welcome her to the winner's circle, to join the likes of Underwood and Kelly Clarkson, this evening.
