EXCLUSIVE

Alexandra del Pilar and Manti Te'o

11:49 AM PT -- New photos have surfaced showing Manti and Alexandra sitting on Santa's lap together sometime around Christmas. 

Alex also posted a photo on November 16, in which she thanked Manti for giving her a couple of leis, which she hung in her car.

The dates are consistent with the story Manti is telling friends.

Manti Te'o quietly began dating an actual living, breathing female human being ... shortly after he learned "Lennay Kekua" had died from cancer ... and the rebound chick is HOT ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Manti tell us ... the Notre Dame star met Alexandra del Pilar the weekend of November 10 -- when Notre Dame played Boston College.

Alexandra, 21, is a student at St. Mary's College in Indiana -- which is close to Notre Dame.

We're told Alexandra and Manti dated for nearly 2 months, but broke up recently.  

There are rumors swirling that Manti created a fictitious GF to take the pressure off him from teammates and others who felt he should be dating, but his relationship with a real woman calls those rumors into doubt.

(Tip of the hat to Busted Coverage for leading us to the most recent pic)

He met her after the Boston College game? yea sure, just like he met the imaginary girlfriend in 2009 after the Stanford game. How does this guy, who may have never been with a girl before meet all these girls after games? Does he walk around by himself and run into them? His teammates never saw him with a girl in his 4 years at Notre Dame. Lots of red flags are going up with Manti Teo when it comes to girls now, he seems desperate to make us believe he likes girls yet spent his entire time in college without one at least a real one
