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.

Ronaiah Ttuiasosopo just needs to come out and admit everything. Te'o is getting hammered in the media for being an naive idiot and the media is upset they fell for it as hard as Te'o did.

If the story of the dead girl is in fact his hoax he deserves all the backlash...if it's someone else who played the hoax on him then shame on them. Either way...he's a great football player and leave him alone.

Glad to know the dummy actually woke up and realized a REAL beard was more convincing than a FAKE one. Take note Tebow!

How convenient. And how did he "rebound" with anyone when there was no first girlfriend who died? He just needs to come out of the closet. Each lie--he digs a deeper hole.

Why don't he just come out and say he's gay. It's not going to effect his draft stock.

Dude    

Timeline doesn't make sense if this is true...

If he "recently" split with this girl, and they had dated for 2 months, then he was obviously dating her BEFORE he found out about the death of his FAKE girlfriend on December 6th.

So this pretty much sums it up that he is in on it.

This is such a trucking stupid ass story.

Honestly, who gives a flying fruck about this?

You should show pictures of that phat whore Kramashin or whatever her name is.

That fracking whale is huge. Nasty disgusting lumps below her belly. Frucking gross.
