J.Lo And A-Rod’s Amazing Relationship Will Leave You With Some Serious Relationship Envy

@arod / Twitter

Pretty much every relationship Jennifer Lopez finds herself in marks an era of chisme. All our mami’s and their comadres have maintained that nobody will ever measure up to Marc Anthony for our Boricua Queen. Until now.

Former baseball star Alex Rodriguez knows that he won the lottery with our favorite Renaissance Woman. He probably has a mami of his own making sure he knows how lucky he is, and he’s unafraid to post his infatuations all over Instagram. Prepare to feel single AF.

The two just celebrated their two year anniversary by posting love notes on Instagram.

A-Rod’s long post commemorating their love starts like this, “Macha 13, I can’t believe it’s been two years. Only 730 days, which have flown by, but it feels like we have been together forever. We are meant to be, and how much you mean to me cannot be put into words.”

“There is no one else I would rather have by my side.” -A-Rod

@arod / Instagram

A-Rod goes on, “From baseball games, to traveling across the world to shows in Vegas. We have done it all together and every moment with you is cherished. Where this road will take us next is unknown but there is no one else I would rather have by my side. The journey is just beginning and I am excited for what’s ahead..Macha, your hard work is unmatched. Your relentless drive and determination push me to be a better man each and every day..Like you there is none other. Words will never do justice to what the last two years have meant to me. Thank you for always being you, for your unwavering support and unconditional love.❤️.Te amo mucho, Lola.”

J.Lo (thee J.Lo) says she feels blessed to have him by her side.

You make my world a more beautiful safe and stable place… in the midst of our ever-changing, ever-moving life… you make me feel like a teenager starting out all over again… Every time I think I have you pegged, you surprise me in the most wonderful ways reminding me how blessed I am to have found you now in this moment at this time… our time… Te Amo Macho… ”

The two lovers act like kids together.

I mean, aren’t all dreams made up of lazy Sundays with the love of your life at the farmer’s market?

@arod / Instagram

Having a basket full of organic local fruit and no one to share it with is the ultimate joy-kill. Plus, they always look like they’re in their own Rom-Com film together.

Remember this time they were glowing in matching flannel pajamas?

@jlo / Instagram

Let it be known that there isn’t a world in which we’ll ever see J.Lo take off those hoops. We’re okay with it.

They not only have each other but a whole big happy family together. 😭

@arod / Instagram

Is the loneliness setting in yet? I’m shattered. Jennifer and Alex both had children in previous marriages and they all seem to get along super well.

Their life is so full of joy that they can give up sugar & carbs and still be happy.

@arod / Instagram

Caption: “No carbs + no sugar = lots of meat. 🥩 Join me and Jennifer for our 10 day challenge.”

Relationship goals aren’t enough. They’re also fitness goals.

@arod / Instagram

And they do it together. Caption: “💥Dream team👍🏻..When your workout partner kicks your a$$ 🤦🏽‍♂️.”

They even have a photo of when they first met.

Granted, it was 14 years ago, and they both were married to their exes. Of course, J.Lo’s amor is an all time Yankees legend.

That time A-Rod politely put an end to P.Diddy’s thirst.

@jlo / Instagram

At the time, the couple existed only in chismosa land, but this comment put things to rest. A-Rod is the only lucky one here.

They casually grace magazine covers together.

In the issue, Lopez reveals more details about their first date. “He was sitting there in his white shirt, very confident and manly, but then he was just so talkative! I think he thought I was going to be this loud person, but I’m not. I just listen. So he’s talking, talking about his plans, about how he had just retired from baseball, about how he saw himself getting married again, all these things you wouldn’t normally talk about on a first date. I don’t know if he thought it was a date. … He was nervous, and it was really cute.”

A-Rod is not only the best Instagram boyfriend, but he thirsts for it.

“A-Rod VMAs” Digital Image. Hollywood Life. 5 February 2019.

The VMA’s captured this pivotal moment of A-Rod recording his girlfriend twerking on national television and he lived for it. The best part of this is the very ‘dad’ nature of A-Rod that compels him to record the performance on his phone, knowing it was being professionally recorded.

He just can’t trust MTV to honor J.Lo the way he would.

They always find time to be together as a family.

@arod / Instagram

In June 2017, A-Rod told Extra, “If you want to be together, you are together. Our kids get along really well, we’re both from New York, we’re both Latin, we’re both in our 40s. We’re really enjoying life.” The two both have two daughters from previous marriages.

J.Lo’s kids now have two dads to show up for their dance recitals.

@arod / Instagram

The potential for conflict is super high, but these two are so mature that they can work anything out.

They fundraised for Puerto Rico together.

After both the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico were devastated by Hurricane Maria, the two orchestrated the Somos Live concert. “Right when the hurricane hit Puerto Rico, Marc and I got on the phone and started talking about what we could do,” Lopez told People. “Alex was right next to me and he started spitballing things we could do… We are all family. We are doing this because it’s the right thing to do. Our community needs us right now and we are very aware that we are leaders in our community.”

And they even meet with Puerto Rico’s governor together.

Look at that loving support. The two traveled to Loiza, Puerto Rico to discuss the impact of the hurricane. Lopez personally donated $1 million to the relief effort.

J.Lo has told the world that she feels like she found “The One.”

@arod / Instagram

“I’m in a good relationship,” she told Hola! USA. “I feel like I can say that for the first time — I don’t know — maybe ever. And not that I didn’t have great relationships, full of love and adventure, but this is the first relationship I’ve been [in] where I feel like we really make each other better. We complement each other, and that’s really pure, true love. Just wanting to support the other person and make them happy.”

Apparently, A-Rod’s daughters are obsessed with J.Lo.

@arod / Instagram

Rodriguez gushed to Jimmy Kimmel Live! that his own daughters are “hanging out with Jennifer backstage. They’re dancing. They’re singing with her. … They call three, four, five times … they’re looking around … ‘Where’s Jennifer?’”

While accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, Lopez gave a mushy shoutout to Alex.

@arod / Instagram

“Alex, you’re like my twin soul. We’re like mirror images of each other. My life is sweeter and better with you in it because you make me realize that every day, the sky is not the limit.”

VIDEO: In A 1998 Interview A-Rod Is Asked Who His Dream Date Is And He Answer Will Either Make You Melt Or It’ll Make You Cringe

arod / Instagram

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s romance has had a very long arc in history, and there are more pieces to the puzzle being revealed every day. While the two met for the first time at a Yankees game while Lopez was with Marc Anthony, it took over 20 years for the stars to align to allow the two to be together.

Just three months ago, the two got engaged, but a recent video shows that A-Rod has been harboring a crush for the Puerto Rican superstar.

In a 1998 interview, a reporter asked A-Rod “what a dream date” would be for him.

@arod / Instagram

He didn’t ask who it would be with. When asked a very broad question that expected an answer like, ‘a walk in the park’ or ‘a trip to Paris,’ A-Rod didn’t hesitate with the specifics.

The dream wasn’t Paris. It was J-Lo.

@arod / Instagram

“Jennifer Lopez. Hopefully you can find me a date with her.” No hesitation. He knew exactly who he wanted to go on a date with and some people might think that is when he planned his eventual engagement to the pop star.

Three months ago, A-Rod proposed to the very same dream date he’s had for decades.

@jlo / Instagram

In the background of the video, we hear the reporter say, “Look at this. This is how good his life is.” We must agree. It is a pretty good life to have the woman of your dreams agree to marry you.

J.Lo outright loves the video because it was A-Rod speaking it out into the universe all those years ago.

@jlo / Instagram

It’s a real-life, New York Romeo & Juliet. We love it too much, too.

Some say it’s destiny, because, well, duh.

@jrodbhabie / Instagram

One user, @peyton_gabriela, commented, “Wow…This gave me goosebumps! Destiny…What’s meant to be will always find a way. ♥️🙌🏼”

A-Rod got the one and only Jennifer Lopez, for life.

@arod / Instagram

A-Rod’s most recent post left this comment, “The 🔥 of my 👁. There are icons…but there is only one Jennifer Lopez, ladies and gentlemen. #CFDA” He is the man that every woman deserves.

A lot of fans enjoyed seeing a young A-Rod professing his love for J.Lo.

@chefkelvin / Instagram

Other fans really drove home the importance of timing, like @bettyoneluv who chimed in with, “If they would of been together back then they would of been divorce already so I think it’s good timing I believe they will together forever lol”

Claro, we’re all applying “The Power of Now” and manifesting destiny to this special moment.

@graciee.lopez / Instagram

You attract what you think is what my mama always used to say. Pensé que era loca, but she was right.

“I kinda need this energy in my life.”

@jlo / Instagram

And with one post, faith in the human civilization has been revitalized. Instagram user @alysiragusa commented, “I need this kinda energy in my life okok my dream parents:: JRod. Do yaaa thing planet Earth 😂👏”

Mira que cute.

Wow. Careful what you wish for, because it might actually come true! Felicidades!

J.Lo’s Iconic Versace Dress Was Googled So Much When She Wore It In 2000 Google Created ‘Google Images’

J.Lo’s Iconic Versace Dress Was Googled So Much When She Wore It In 2000 Google Created ‘Google Images’

@PageSix /Twitter

Who can forget the dress that shot Jennifer Lopez into the fashion Goddess stratosphere overnight? That miraculous jungle green, palm print gown made of chiffon,  held in place by the power of Zeus. It was a lightning strike moment in February of 2000 when J.Lo appeared with Sean Combs on the red carpet of the Grammys.  It was a moment that made pop culture history.  The Council of Fashion Designers, CFDA, has announced that they will honor Lopez with the Fashion Icon Award on June 3rd.

Hearing the news, the Jenny from the Block singer was quick to go on youtube for a video titled “Moments in Fashion:  The Versace Dress” and gush about the dress, her friendship to Luigi Massi, and to tell of the night she became a fashion icon.  

Here are 20 facts you didn’t know about that amazing Versace dress.

1.    Mucho Dinero

@jlover_queen_ily/ instagram

In 2000, the Versace gown would set you back $15,000 dollars.  The dress was made from silk chiffon and clasped together several inches below the navel with a brooch.  That brooch and under garment were covered in citrine crystals.

2.    She’s Still Got It.

@jloverciarra/instagram

In a video diary she did with People magazine four year ago Lopez revealed that she still has the dress on a mannequin in her walk-in closet.

3.    Her Parents Were Shocked but Supportive.

@jrodheaven/instagram

One thing you might have been wondering is what her parents were thinking when she chose that dress.  On an episode of Oprah back in 2002, J.Lo and her mother gave an interview talking about mom and dad’s reaction to the dress.  J.Lo’s mother was in shock but supportive.  “My first impression was “Oh my God!”  She told the audience.  J.Lo’s father wanted her to wear something more covered up.  In the end, both chose to be supportive of their daughter’s daring fashion choice.

4.    Was She Going to Fall Out?

@hrh_klynch/instagram

While everyone held their breath waiting for an epic wardrobe malfunction, J.Lo was totally chill.  Why? Double sided tape.  “I was so securely stuck into that thing,” Lopez said in her youtube video. “There was going to be no mishaps.”

5.    It Stole the Show.

@j.lo/twitter

The moment she walked on stage with David Duchovny to present the award for Best R&B Album, the crowd stood up and applauded.  A standing ovation for a dress?  Yaaaaaas!

6.    Fourth Time’s the Charm.

@enews/twitter

It was not the first time the dress had been worn in public.  It was first worn by Donatella Versace herself, then by model Amber Valletta for its runway debut.  Then it was worn by Ginger Spice, Geri Halliwell a month before Lopez would wear it and make it famous.

7.  And the Dress Almost Didn’t Even Happen!

jlo / Instagram

J.Lo’s stylist wanted her to pass on the Versace dress.  It had been worn out three times already and she wanted her to wear something new.  But the dress fitting took place the day of the Grammy’s  while J.Lo was filming “The Wedding Planner” and there was no time to fuss.  It was literally a last minute decision.

8.    Barely Any Red Carpet Time

@90scelebvibes/instagram

You would think with all the photos we see of J.Lo smiling for the paparazzi that she had hours to stand around posing on the red carpet, but actually she was running late.  She was the first presenter of the night so she had to rush the red carpet to meet her fellow presenter David Duchovny backstage.

9.  J.Lo is Responsible for Google Images?

@webdebsites/instagram

Eric Schmidt, President of Google said in a 2015 interview, that J.Lo’s dress was the most searched term in google’s history up to that point. The high demand drove google to create a search engine that showed photo results instead of text.  It was then named Google Images.  

10.  Mega Downloads

@jlo.legend/instagram

The only way you could see images of J.Lo’s fabulous frock that night in 2000 was to download it directly from the Grammy website.  In the 24 hours following the awards show, it  was downloaded 642,917 times.

11.    J.Lo Overshadowed Santana

While J.Lo didn’t win the award she was nominated for, she did win for most press coverage.  The next morning she was on the cover of newspapers across the country.  She said in her youtube video that she had a massive picture on the cover of the LA times and in a small box on the bottom of the page was a picture of Santana who had won 11 Grammys the night before.

12.    It Saved a Fashion House.

Donatella Versace was at a turning point in her career.  Gianni Versace had passed away in 1997 and Donatella was struggling to find her own voice within the fashion house.  It was that moment when J.Lo made the dress infamous that the House of Versace was reborn.

13.    Not Her First Fashion Award 

The award she will get from the CFDA this June is just one of many awards she has received for her iconic style.  In 2002, the VH1 Vogue Fashion Awards named J.Lo the most influential star of the year and the award was presented to Lopez by Donatella herself.

14.    The Trey Parker Parody

@wrtsnydck/instagram

The following month, Trey Parker, creator of South Park and the musical The Book of Mormon, went to the Academy Awards and wore a copy of J.Lo’s dress on the red carpet. Making the dress a show stealer twice!

15.    Ellen Wore It, too.

@TheEllenShow / Twitter

Ellen crashed J.Lo’s Las Vegas show “Jennifer Lopez: All I Have” in 2017 wearing the green dress, and a busty body suit.  J.Lo laughed it off, but Ellen persisted that she should be J.Lo’s understudy and began to order the people backstage around.

16.    Pretty Affordable Copy 

 @OfficialPLT / Twitter

Online fashion retailer PrettyLittleThing sold an almost exact copy of the dress on their online store for a mere $50 back in 2015. 

17.    Ebay Has You Covered

Another way to get the dress is to find a used Versace for sale on resale sites.  Prices range from $2000 to $7000 dollars.  

18.    Deja Vu

@jlo.bronx/instagram

J.Lo recreated her legendary look for a 2015 concert in her home neighborhood of the Bronx.  She came out in a slightly altered bodysuit and fishnets.  The pattern and the plunging neckline were still represented.

19.    The Co-Designer was Luigi Massi.

@bbafmagazine/instagram

Luigi Massi was Donatella Versace’s right hand man and he had a hand in tailoring many of J.Lo’s looks over the last 20 years including that palm print gown.  J.Lo cried when speaking about him in her youtube video because he had passed away a few weeks ago.  “He couldn’t speak English, and I couldn’t speak Italian but we always understood each other.  We had such fun working together for 20 years.”

20.     J.Lo Thought About Selling the Dress

@glowgrl/twitter

In a 2000 Documentary for MTV Lopez tells the camera in a confessional moment that she was thinking of selling the dress to Planet Hollywood and giving the proceeds to charity. She then went on to say “I can’t go to sleep with my Grammy dress every night.”
