All Black heartthrob Sonny Bill Williams has a new girlfriend - the daughter of another sports star.

Williams,26, has been seeing Aucklander Jaime Ridge, the teenage daughter of former league star Matthew and his ex-wife Sally.

The pair have been seeing each other for about three weeks and have been spotted out together. They have reportedly spent time together in Auckland where Ridge lives, and in Hamilton where Williams plays Super 14 rugby for the Chiefs.

"They're both very publicity shy and it's very early days for the relationship, but they have been spotted together on a regular basis," a source said.

However, Ridge is expected to be sitting in the front row at Williams' boxing bout next month.

"They are a very well-matched couple," said the source." Not only are they both gorgeous but they are both very family focussed and used to living life under the media spotlight - their values are the same."

Ridge, 18, is studying law and commerce at Auckland University.

She is a regular in the social pages with mum Sally, and recently featured in a Metro magazine photo shoot of Auckland celebrities.

She has done some modelling work, including at last year's Fashion Week where she modelled a lingerie creation designed by her mother.

Williams was last romantically linked with 21-year-old Cantabrian Aleisha Berryman.

His boxing bout against Clarence Tillman III for the NZ Boxing Association heavyweight title is in Hamilton on Feruary 8.
