Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have been together for almost two years, and even though Jennifer was recently spotted wearing a huge rock on her finger, there's still no talk about marriage.
Lopez has been married three times already and has made it clear that she has no intention of rushing into another marriage. "We’re happy. We’re taking it day-by-day. And it’s great," she said, as USA Today reports.
The two seem like the ultimate power couple and their relationship is growing stronger by the day. The more pictures we see of them, the more obvious it becomes that they are really in love. Not only that but they seem to have blended their two families fairly easy. Both Lopez and Rodriguez have children from previous relationships.
This is one cute couple and we have the pictures that will have you falling in love with them too. It might be possible that Jenifer Lopez has found her Mr. Right! Check out these 20 photos of JLo and Alex Rodriguez that make us swoon.
20 Ellen DeGeneres Asked A Striking Question
When word got out that Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez were dating, Ellen DeGeneres decided to put Lopez on the spot. DeGeneres wasn’t throwing any punches when Lopez was on her show - she wanted some real answers!
She asked Lopez straight out whether she and Rodriguez had a “sleepover” on the first date. "No! Mama don't sleepover on the first date!" Lopez responded, as Toronto Sun reports. Only Ellen can get away with things like this.
19 Working Late Together
Sometimes the only way stars can find time to be together is to be on set while they are working. Lopez posted this picture to social media stating that she and Alex were still working at 2:30 am. They look so cute together as they get their work done.
Everyone is waiting to see if these two are going to get engaged and Lopez understands the hype.
“Everyone wants a fairy tale. They all want a romantic comedy, a happy ending. We all do,"
Lopez told USA Today. "But it’s not a movie, even if you see us on Instagram or on the shows."
18 They Are Becoming A Blended Family
You have to be careful in the dating world when you have kids. You have to make sure that everyone is going to get along. That doesn’t seem to be a problem with these two. We love how Rodriguez’ daughter is looking up to Lopez in this photo. It’s like she has stars in her eyes over her dad’s girlfriend. You probably couldn’t find a cooler stepmother to have, really. “Kids are so beautiful and open to love and new friends,” Lopez told Entertainment Tonight Canada about merging the two families.
“I was so loving to his kids and he was so loving and accepting of mine, and they embraced each other right away.
[It was like] ‘I get a new bonus brother and sisters to hang out with all the time and it’s nice.’”
17 Sometimes Lopez Gets A Little Mushy
When Jennifer Lopez performed at the 2018 DIRECTV NOW Super Saturday Night concert, a pre-Super Bowl LII show, Alex Rodriguez was in the audience cheering her on. She performed the song "Us," saying, "We've been together for one year today. I don't want to get all mushy or anything, but baby, this song's for you. I love you."
Afterward, as E! News reports, she said, "It was our little anniversary, so it was a special night. I kept thinking 'Oh, God, February 3! That's our day. Oh, my God! It's been a year.' It was more spontaneous than anything else. It wasn't too planned. I thought about it, and I thought, 'Maybe I'll do it; maybe I won't. But it was a great show, in general, and...I don't know. We felt really good."
16 Marriage Is Definitely An Option
There are a lot of people waiting for the engagement announcement and Jennifer Lopez is not opposed to walking down the aisle for the third time.
“Of course, it’s something we think about. We think about getting married, but it will happen naturally when and if it’s supposed to,”
Lopez said, as Entertainment Tonight Canada reports. She added, “Our kids have become best friends and that keeps us both grounded and appreciative. We couldn’t have asked for anything better than the four of them getting along as they do.”
15 A Simple Lunch Brought Them Together
Sometimes, you never know when you are going to meet the man of your dreams. In Lopez’ case, she'd known Rodriguez for many years, but then bumped into him, as fate would have it.
"I was having lunch somewhere and I saw him and he passed by," Lopez said, as CNN reports. "Afterward, I went outside. For some reason, I just felt like tapping him on the shoulder and saying hi."
14 Things Just Didn’t Work Out Before
Jennifer Lopez understands the mistakes she has made in the past when it comes to her love life. She had two short marriages in the past as well as a long marriage to Marc Anthony. “I knew there was something going on that I did not understand,” Lopez said of the pattern of failed relationships, as People reports.
“I was done blaming other people – he did this or he did that – and I said to myself, 'No, it’s you.'”
Which is part of the reason why she is taking things slow this time.
13 Spending The Holidays Together
As you can see in the picture, Lopez and Rodriguez spent Christmas together and that meant the children got together too. We saw a ton of holiday pictures on social media of the family decorating the Christmas and wearing matching pajamas. It was adorable.
"2018 has really moved us to place where we feel like a real family,"
said Lopez, as Business Insider reports. "That's nice. And it's good enough right now."
12 Alex Is Completely Smitten Over Jennifer
These two are working for a reason and it’s pretty obvious that Alex Rodriguez is head over heels for Jennifer Lopez. She has plenty of great things to say about Alex and he is equally as smitten with her. He appeared on The View and couldn’t say enough good things about Lopez.
As AOL reports, Rodriguez described Lopez as "one of the smartest human beings" and an "incredible mother." Now those are some heavy duty compliments and it’s no surprise why she adores him so much!
11 He Is The Perfect Package For Her
We are sure that these two will be engaged in no time. It’s pretty obvious to everyone around them that they belong together. Mainly because Lopez loves him in a really big way.
"I have nothing but the most amazing things to say about Alex. He’s an incredible friend, partner and father. And he's a family man. He’s just awesome," Lopez has said, as USA Today reports. "We have this great loving support system. You know no matter where you are that you’re rooting for each other." Can we say wow?
10 She Knows What She Deserves
One of the family snaps that was posted on social media over the holidays showed Alex Rodriguez cooking Lopez breakfast. Who wouldn’t love a man who can cook? Don’t they look so cute in their matching pyjamas?
“I have my own high standards for what I want in a partner and how I want to be treated. I bring a lot to the table,"
Lopez has said, as Mirror reports. "I'm not talking about material things but what I have to offer as a person — love and loyalty and all the things that make a good relationship.”
Seems she's met her match.
9 They Make An Amazing Power Couple
These two look like they are unstoppable and Alex is always there when she needs him. "He's so supportive," Lopez told E! News.
"I mean, he was at rehearsal with me last night till 1 a.m. and after he had worked his whole day, I work my whole day, then we go to rehearsal and he's like, 'What time will you be done?' I said, 'I don't know.' He goes, 'Alright, I'll just come over there and I'll do some work and we'll go home together.'
That's the kind of support, like in this business, it's just a different kind of business, you know, and so, to have someone who understands it and wants to be there and you want to be there for them, it's a very special thing."
8 She Doesn’t Sweat The Small Stuff
Interviewers just can’t stop asking this couple when they are getting married but they aren’t in a rush. Lopez couldn’t be more chill about the whole thing. When E! News asked about a possible engagement, Lopez said, "No, I don't like to pressure anybody for anything," while smiling at Rodriguez.
In a separate interview, Rodriguez was also asked about the possibility of marriage. He was asked, "Could the question be popped?" Rodriguez replied, "Jennifer's amazing. It's nice, it's nice. You're gonna make me blush now! Now I'm sweating. No, she's an amazing girl."
7 She’s A Hopeless Romantic
Maybe that’s why she keeps trying in the love department despite multiple divorces, hey? Some women would have just given up by now, but Lopez still believes in true love. Lopez has called herself romantic and passionate, but Mom Me also reports her saying,
“I don't regret what I've been through. I've had ups and downs, super highs and some really low lows. I've been so blessed that I could never say, 'I wish this didn't happen.'
It's part of who I am. There's nothing in my life that's so ugh.”
6 Alex Brings Something To Her Life
Not only does Alex support Jennifer in all that she does but he also allows her to be herself which can be a rare thing to find in a partner. We all want to be loved for who we are. “He’s come into my life and really contributed in such a way,” she said, as Parade reports.
“He’s so supportive, he’s so loving. Some people try to dull you down or squish you down, and he’s so not like that and it’s just so refreshing. It’s just a beautiful thing.
He’s just a very generous, loving spirit, soul.”
5 She Feels Lucky To Have Him
This picture is definitely swoon-worthy. It’s obvious that they both care a lot for each other and considering that Lopez is 49 now, she feels lucky to have found a man who is crazy about her.
“There’s just something about having that type of love and support that makes you soar and that’s what I think we try to be for each other and I just feel so lucky,”
she says, as E! News reports. She’s not only lucky in love but also with her career. In the last three years, she has made over $100 million on her ticket sales for her concerts, as MSN reports.
4 She's All About Having A Healthy Love
We can’t blame her, with such a handsome guy on her arm! But Lopez has also insisted on how important it is to love yourself.
"You've got to be okay on your own before you're okay with someone else. You've got to value yourself and know that you're worth everything,"
she said, as E! News reports. She couldn’t be more right. If you don’t love yourself, loving someone else would be pretty hard to do.
3 She Keeps The Fantasy Going
So how does a woman like JLo keep a man happy? She likes to have that sense of mystery and intrigue when it comes to her life. She doesn’t worry about perfection but she does like to keep things spicy.
“I like to maintain a certain sense of fantasy in my life,"
she says, as Glamour reports. "I am kind of like that at home. Do I have the full hair and makeup? No. But I might have the nice dress on.”
2 Her Favourite Moments With Alex
Some of her favourite moments with Alex are when kissing is involved but she also believes in taking things slow. She believes that waiting for the first kiss is the best part.
“If you kiss on the first date and it's not right, then there will be no second date. Sometimes it's better to hold out and not kiss for a long time," she says, as Mom Me reports. "I am a strong believer in kissing being very [close], and the minute you kiss, the floodgates open for everything else.”
1 They Are In It For The Long Haul
These two make quite the beautiful family together and it’s obvious that they are in it for the long haul regardless of whether they get married or not. They have found each other and Lopez knows exactly what she has and she’s hanging on to it tight.
“We love each other and we love our life together,”
Lopez said, as People reports. “The exciting part of our love is that we’re both very aware of how lucky we are to have found each other.”
