The world number five was first spotted with the rising American football star in April and the pair have been dating for more than three months, Us Weekly has confirmed.

The Danish athlete was famously engaged to Irish golfer Rory McIlroy, who called off their engagement in a seven minute phone call days after their wedding invitations were sent.

He has since moved on with PGA employee Erica Stoll, while Wozniacki has been quietly dating one of the NFL's most impressive defensive players, who stands at 6'5" and 285 lbs.

Watt even jetted to Paris last month to support her at the French Open and the pair were spotted mixing business and pleasure as they enjoyed the City of Light together.

Rumours of a romance first emerged after they  were pictured laughing and smiling together at the NCAA men's basketball finals featuring his alma mater, the University of Wisconsin.

While Caroline is currently competing in Wimbledon, Watt is in Milwaukee, where a video of him tackling an overzealous fan at a Zac Brown Band concert.

Wozniacki has previously spoken about overcoming the devastation of her split with McIlroy last May, saying: "In my head I had everything until that moment. I had a great career, I was getting married, I have a perfect family. Everything was great. There was really nothing going against me. I was happy, very happy.

"Then all of a sudden something happens that you don't expect. You just see your world turned around, literally from one second to the next. I think I didn't know how strong I was until that happened. And I didn't know how much you can actually take. It really feels like someone close to you has died.

"You have to go through all of that. I think that taught me so much. I think I grew up so much in that short time. I also realised who is always there for me and who is just there when things are good."
