They say a picture speaks a thousand words. And that's certainly the case for Eva Longoria and Eduardo Cruz.
Despite denying reports they have become romantically involved, the couple have been photographed kissing onboard a yacht.
In the snap, Eduardo – 25-year-old brother of Oscar winner Penelope Cruz – can be seen bending down to plant a tender kiss on the Desperate Housewives beauty's lips.
The picture was taken at the weekend, which the couple spent together with friends on a luxury cruiser named Utopia III.
They were guests of Eva's pal, cosmetics mogul Loren Ridinger, who hosted a special Super Bowl party.
Eva, 35, and Madrid-born singer Eduardo were first linked back in October, when he was seen with her at her restaurant in Los Angeles – before she revealed to fans that she'd split from basketball star Tony.
He was then seen leaving her house on the morning of Christmas Eve, and they were spotted together at a Hollywood cabaret club just last month.
At the time, her publicist denied the pair were romantically involved, saying they were "just friends", and adding: "Eva does not have a boyfriend."
According to US Magazine, it was new mum Penelope who played matchmaker between her younger brother and the star, having set them up together at a party.
"They have been on a few dates in LA," a source close to the Cruz family said of the new couple (also pictured the following morning). "But there was never anything going on between them before her split."
Eva separated from her second husband in November amid reports he had been unfaithful. Her divorce was finalised last week, on January 28.
The friend added: "They're having fun together, but he is young – he knows Eva is just out of a long-term relationship and he's not really looking for anything too serious."
