Word on the street is Rachel Roy may be working on something new. And while it’s nothing we can hang in our closets, it could be something beautiful nonetheless.

According to reports, the designer has started seeing a new beau and he is quite the looker. Rachel has been seen on the arm of Indianapolis Colts’ player Dwight Freeney. At 31, Dwight is six years Rachel’s junior but the couple is proving age really ain’t nothing but a number.

The two were first spotted in Late February when Rachel joined Dwight for his birthday dinner at New York hot spot Abe & Arthur’s and then headed out to Covet for more partying into the night. Last Wednesday the two were spotted cozying up at the newly opened dining spot, Beauty & Essex in the city’s lower east side.

Rachel is the ex-wife of Damon Dash, former Roc-a-Fella records executive. The two divorced in 2009, but have remained amicable and deeply involved in the care of their young daughters. For some time now, many people wondered if/when the stunning mother and designer would find something new.

Well, now it appears Rachel may have found her something in Dwight.  While he certainly makes a presence on the field, we remember him last from his appearance on Dr. Phil two years ago when the NFL star went incognito as a limo driver during an episode on spotting gold-diggers.

We’re not quite sure how his talk show cameo makes us feel, but the new couple is still in the early stages of getting to know one another. According to one of Rachel’s friends:

“Rachel and Dwight have been out for a few dinners and get on well, but it is early days.”

Ahh the early days of a budding romance! Despite the weather, at least there’s one sign that spring is in the air…
