Baseballer Matt Kemp has been popping up in a lot of Khloe Kardashian’s social media-ing of late so of course we’re hoping KoKo has found a new star athlete. That is, if Matt’s willing to make the leap into the land of Kardashian.

As many a suitor knows, falling for a Kardashian (or Jenner) girl isn’t as easy as playing the right professional sport. Dating one of these ladies means becoming a part of the whole extended family and the media empire they represent.

Matt’s reportedly worried about what life would be like in the fast lane of reality television. Described by Hollywood Life as a “shy” and “private” guy, Matt “isn’t used to so much media attention and scrutiny, especially about his personal life.”

So no matter how much he likes Khloe — and Hollywood Life says he “adores” the 29-year-old starlet — all the glitz and glimmer that comes along with Kardashian Khaos may not be for him.

“He’s low-key and sticks to himself and is not all out there in the media,” a source tells Hollywood Life. “He doesn’t care about all the extras that come with being around of the Kardashians.”

Which is exactly why we think he might be just what the love doctor ordered! After the severe punishing Khloe’s taken in the tabloids this year, it seems only fair her next love would be someone not quite so keen on talking to the paps and/or releasing highly critical raps about their relationship issues.

What do you think? A match made in heaven or are Khloe and Matt just friends?
