Does Drake have a new lady? That鈥檚 the very question that had tongues wagging when the 30-year-old rapper stepped out on the red carpet for the first annual NBA Awards at NY鈥檚 Pier 34 last night with a mystery woman on his arm: one Rosalyn Gold-Onwude.

Sparking instant relationship buzz, the gorgeous duo definitely stood out from the crowd, with Drake handling his hosting duties and Gold-Onwude holding her own among the familiar crowd.

Drake and Rosalyn Gold-Onwude relationship buzz

While there鈥檚 no official word on whether or not these two are officially an item, we鈥檝e got the deets on Drake鈥檚 date, from her Ivy-league background to her enviable basketball skillz.

According to People, Gold-Onwude is an NBA sideline reporter (most recently with the Golden State Warriors), who shares Drake鈥檚 half-Black/half-Jewish heritage. The fellow 30-year-old is a graduate of Stanford University where she not only studied, but played basketball, earning the title of Pac 10 Defensive Player of the Year with three trips to the Final Four (wow!).

And if you thought her current professional status was more than a little impressive, just wait until you hear about the Emmy she scored back in 2015, or the spot she landed covering the 2016 Rio Olympics! Gold-Onwude reportedly sees her role in sports journalism as just another step up the ladder, telling Bauce, 鈥淥ne of the biggest people I look up to is [Good Morning America anchor] Robin Roberts. She started in sports and transcended out. Maybe that鈥檚 something I could do one day.鈥

Still, there鈥檚 no doubt that basketball will always have a special place in the athlete鈥檚 heart, not only because she鈥檚 the kind of player who can take down Lebron James (in a dress, no less), but because it鈥檚 the very reason she met (possible current bae) Drake.

Friends since 2015, Drake was apparently feeling blue after his home team, the Toronto Raptors, lost a game, but was soon cheered up by the presence of Gold-Onwude. He even shared a pic of the pair at the time, along with the caption, 鈥淲hen the post game makes you forget about what happened during the actual game @rosgo21 馃槃.鈥 Oh my!

鈥淗e鈥檚 a big time basketball fan, we鈥檝e become friends through鈥 just his passion for the game,鈥 Gold-Onwude told Scoop B Radio. 鈥淪o we met through that, and every time he鈥檚 around, it鈥檚 always fun, jokes, laughter鈥 [It鈥檚] been really cool to cultivate a friendship with him.鈥

As you鈥檒l likely recall, Drake鈥檚 previous high-profile romance with J.Lo ended just as abruptly as it started, with the 47-year-old citing conflicting schedules for their split and moving on to ballplayer Alex Rodriguez. Perhaps it鈥檚 Drake鈥檚 turn to cultivate his own budding romance?

We sure hope so 鈥 these two are adorbs!
