Alex Rodriguez puts on a smile as he dines alone in New York City amid JLo and Ben Affleck reunion

He and Jennifer Lopez called off their engagement back in April.

And Alex Rodriguez showed he was in high spirits as he continued to adjust to single life while grabbing a bite in New York City on Saturday.

The 45-year-old former baseball star was seen having a solo dinner in the early evening at the Italian spot Bar Pitti, as his ex continues to strengthen her new relationship with her former fiancé Ben Affleck.

Alex beamed ear-to-ear and flashed a thumbs up as he headed to the Italian restaurant, a popular celebrity spotting location.

He showed off his still-athletic figure in a black polo shirt and matching jeans. 

The shortstop added some color to the casual ensemble with a set of blue Nike trainers.

He blocked out the late-afternoon sun with a pair of black sunglasses and added a gold luxury wristwatch for some extra flair.

Alex was ferried to his solo dinner in a black shuttle.

Despite his infectious grin on his way to dinner, he had a stonier face while he ate his pasta outdoors.

Although the Yankees star is currently single, a source told The Sun late in May that he had tried to ‘reached out to’ Southern Charm star Madison LeCroy shortly after Jennifer and he ended their engagement.

In February, the reality star claimed that A-Rod had sent her direct messages on social media, though she said that ‘He’s never physically cheated on his fiancée with me.’

But Alex reportedly wanted to meet up with her in person at the PGA Championship in South Carolina last month. 

A source told the publication that he chose the event because ‘he knew she’d be there and he had friends there so it was a good excuse to be in the same place.’

However, the source added that Madison was ‘completely over it,’ and she has said that she currently has a boyfriend on Instagram.

Alex’s representative Ron Berkowitz denied the reporting in a statement to DailyMail.com.

‘I’m not sure who’s looking to benefit from these types of rumors and false stories. They are factually incorrect,’ he claimed. ‘Alex is busy concentrating on his businesses and his family.’

While her ex was dining out on his own, Jennifer shared her own beaming visage in a short ad for her latest business venture on Instagram.

She flaunted her astounding figure in a sporty red ensemble that she might have worn to the gym on any regular day after popping a gummy in her mouth.

She mimed working out, though there wasn’t any real exercise as she was just performing for the cameras. 

‘Next look!’ she shouted on the stage before changing out of her workout ensemble into a crisp white suit.

She removed her jacket to reveal a lovely pale gold satin blouse, and she wore her blond-tinted locks down over her shoulders.

Jennifer seemed to be in high spirits as her new relationship with Ben Affleck continues to develop.

A source recently told People that the two are ‘incredibly happy’ and ‘want to spend as much time together as possible.’

The actress and singer visited Windward School in Los Angeles on Thursday, suggesting that she may be considering a move to the West Coast as she and Ben continue to get closer.

He’s committed to staying in Southern California to be close to the three children he shares with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner, but Lopez is usually based in Miami, where she lives with her twins Max and Emma, 13.

The two recently enjoyed a weeklong trip to Montana, before spending time together at Lopez’s Miami home.

Prior to that, Ben had been spotted being chauffeured to Jennifer’s home in LA.

The actors first met in 2001 on the set of their box-office bomb Gigli, and they made their relationship official the following year, shortly after Jennifer divorced her second husband.

They got engaged later in 2002 and scheduled their wedding for September 2003 but called it off with only a few days notice.

Ben and Jennifer then split in early 2004, but reportedly remained friends afterward, which may have helped them get close again.
