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.

Really? He has an actual "girlfriend"? Why am I skeptical? It must be darned important in the NFL to be straight.

I love how nobody has anything to support the claim that he's gay yet everyone wants to just run with that.

This guy must be a real nut job. He claims to have an Internet girlfriend that he never even met. Then he runs around showing everyone a tweetl he got from some girl to prove he had a girlfriend for 8 weeks. The guy is about to get a milion dollar football contract and he still can't find anyone to date him.

BREAKING NEWS! I'm really SURPRISED that the media - and TMZ - hasn't picked up on this yet:
Te'o and Obama graduated from the same school in Hawaii: Punahou in Honolulu. Upon graduation, both got a "Lie School Diploma." So, Te'o should just get a PASS on all this entire matter, just like the mainstream media gives Obama for all of his "misstatements!"

somewhere there is a Mormon connection here that no one is bothering to look into. Manti is LDS its not likely he is going to be bangin chicks at UND so most of this makes sense to me. He should of gone to BYU i guess but an odd story to say the least

Seriously... I thought this was funny when it first came out. Now it's getting so redundant it's giving me a headache. I turn on the tv and I have to watch kids channels in order to avoid hearing about it. Stop beating a dead horse. He's going to the NFL, he had a fake gf and Alabama walked all over him in the BCS NC Game. Let it go already.
