London: Rihanna`s new boyfriend and baseball player Matt Kemp is completely smitten by the singer and insists he loves to be around her.

"That`s my girl! She`s just a fun person. I love to be around her. She`s definitely a great person in my life, and I`m happy I`m with her," a news website quoted Kemp as saying.

After months of speculation, the "Umbrella" hitmaker finally confirmed, last month, that she is dating Kemp.

Rihanna and Kemp were introduced by friends in November last year. The two sparked romance rumours after they were spotted having an intimate time during their vacation at a luxury resort in Cabo San Lucas earlier this year.
