Lindsey Vonn, Tiger Woods Confirm They're Dating, Pose for Portrait
Yes, it's on. After months of silence, Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods have both confirmed they are an item."This season has been great so far and I'm happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral. Something nice that's happened off the course was meeting Lindsey Vonn," Woods, 33, wrote on his Facebook page. "Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating. We thank you for your support and for respecting our privacy. We want to continue our relationship, privately, as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes."
"I guess it wasn't a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods," Olympic skier Vonn, 28, wrote on her official Facebook page on Monday, March 18.
The newly divorced gold medalist and the golfer, 37, have been romantically linked since November, and were most recently spotted hanging on Woods' yacht, Privacy, last week. Gushes Vonn: "Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy." Happy sounds about right: The new couple even released their first-ever joint portraits together, in which they smile and lean in together before a lush background.
Woods, who divorced wife Elin Nordegren back in 2010 following an epic cheating scandal, has already introduced Vonn to his kids Sam, 5, and Charlie, 4, with Vonn giving the cuties skiing lessons. "I don't plan on addressing this further as I would like to keep that part of my life between us, my family and close friends," Vonn added "Thank you for understanding and your continued support! xo LV"
Woods' Swedish model ex Nordegren, 33, has also moved on. She's reportedly dating coal billionaire Chris Cline, 53, according to the New York Post.
