Lindsay Lohan Dating Matt Nordgren

Looks like Lindsay Lohan has herself a new man: People magazine reports that the 27-year-old actress is dating "wholesome" former pro footballer Matt Nordgren. The 30-year-old athlete did a stint with the Philadelphia Eagles and is now a reality TV star, having appeared in shows like Bravo's "Most Eligible Dallas."

Nordgren himself wasn't shy about sharing the news to the New York Post, adding that he and "The Canyons" actress had been friends for years. "We've hung out. But I have been a friend trying to support her for many years now," he said.

On Lohan's much-publicized rehab treatment, Nordgren added: "She's completely sober right now. She's in a great place and working hard and meeting with all the right people."

Meanwhile, a source for Us Weekly magazine confirmed Lohan and Nordgren's budding relationship. "He's older, a successful businessman, and he has been a great friend to her," the insider said. He's also a Christian and won't drink around her. He's trying to keep her sober and on the straight and narrow. He's really good for her."

Earlier this month, Lohan shared a photo of herself with Norgren (to Lohan's right) on her Instagram page, adding the cryptic caption: "nice evening :)."
