Let the Christian Ponder-Samantha Steele rumors begin.

The Minnesota Vikings quarterback confirmed in a tweet Thursday that he is dating the ESPN sideline reporter. As we've seen before, sometimes Twitter can be misleading, but there's good reason to believe Ponder and Steele are actually together.

The tweet, which looks to have been taken down, appears below.

When a friend told Ponder she was impressed by the news that he was dating Steele, he tweeted back: "I'm not gonna lie I am kind of impressed with myself too."

Of course, it's not like Ponder has much to be ashamed of when it comes to his past relationships.
