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

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

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.”

Jennifer Lopez Just Announced That She’s Pumped The Brakes On Her Wedding To Alex Rodriguez

Insider / Instagram

Just when we thought Coronavirus couldn’t make things worse.

On a recent at-home edition of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jennifer Lopez announced that she has had to put a pause on her wedding thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking to Ellen, Lopez explained how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected her during this time.

“It did affect it a little bit,” Lopez told Ellen in an interview in which the TV host asked about her wedding plans. “So, we’ll see what happens now … I really don’t know what’s gonna happen now as far as dates or anything like that. We are just kind of in a holding pattern like the rest of the world. So, again, it’s just something we have to wait and see in a few months how this all pans out.”

Of course, leave it to DeGeneres to push for romance. The talk show host recommended that Lopez and Rodriguez try to do a “TikTok wedding” consider how popular their recent videos on the platform have been so far.

“It’s something to think about,” Lopez laughed. “I can’t make any commitments right now.” 

The Latina queen and retired baseball superstar became engaged in March 2019.

For the two years that they’ve been dating, J-Lo and A-Rod have shared their lives with the public through their social media accounts, giving us a glimpse into the loving relationship that Lopez has called her “first ever good relationship”. Their Instagram profiles are sprinkled with pictures of them jet-setting, attending premieres and galas, and taking mixed-family vacations in exotic locales together. In other words, they’re very publicly living their best lives together.

However, a wrench was thrown into their happily-ever-after Sunday night when former MLB player Jose Canseco publicly accused A-Rod of cheating on Jennifer Lopez with his ex-wife, Jessica Canseco. In light of all this drama, we’ve compiled the definitive timeline of Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s relationship, all the way from friends to fíances. Take a look!

May 2005

@n12jamiestuart/Twitter

Before the Puerto-Rican triple threat and the Dominican All-Star were Hollywood’s reigning It Couple, they were mere acquaintances. The pair first met in 2005 at a Yankees vs. Mets Baseball game. At the time, Rodriguez was married to his first wife, Cynthia Scurtis, while Lopez was still married to Marc Anthony.

February 2017

@1FREEGRL/Twitter

Lopez and Rodriguez reconnected twelve years later when they ran into each other at a restaurant. According to Lopez, they briefly said hello, but it was her who couldn’t resist continuing the conversations. “After [lunch] I went outside,” she said. “And for some reason I felt like tapping him on the shoulder”. He then asked her out to dinner via text.

March 2017

@jlo / Instagram

By March 2017, neither J-Lo nor A-Rod were trying to hide the fact that they were dating. During the month, they were spotted vacationing together in The Bahamas. ARod’s sister also posted a selfie of herself with JLo, captioning it #miscuñis, which means things were moving along pretty nicely.

March 31st, 2017

@jlo / Instagram

When co-hosting “The View” at the end of March, Rodriguez had only great things to say about his new lady love: “She’s an amazing girl. We’re having a great time”. He also went on to say that J-Lo was “one of the smartest human beings I’ve ever met”. And he didn’t stop there! He showered on the compliments by calling her “an incredible mother” who “loves family”.

April 2017

@nicole_hurley/Instagram

By April, it was J-Lo’s turn to gush about her boo-thing on the talk-show circuit. While being grilled about her new boyfriend by Ellen (naturally), Lopez called Rodriguez “a great guy,” this 100% confirming their relationship.

May 2017

@2015smetgala/Twitter

Never one to do things half-heartedly, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez made their public debut as a couple at arguably the most prestigious event in the world: the Met Gala, of course. This occasion also marked J-Lo’s debut on A-Rod’s Instagram–and the first of many.

June 2017

@arod / Instagram

By June 2017, it was obvious to the world that this couple was the real deal. Not only was Rodriguez gushing to the press that Jennifer was the ideal role model for his daughters, the pair was also taking glamorous European trips together and posting their adventures to their millions of followers on Instagram.

September 2017

@nicole_hurley/Instagram

We all know that one of the most crucial steps of a relationship is when your signficant other accompanies you to a work event. Lopez and Rodriguez crossed this milestone when A-Rod accompanied her to the premiere of “World of Dance”–a show she stars in and produces. It’s for reasons like this that A-Rod calls her “one of the most brilliant business minds that [he’s] ever met”!

November 2017

@nicole_hurley/Instagram

J-Lo and A-Rod took their relationship a step further when they spent Thanksgiving together in Rodriguez’s home. On Instagram, they shared with their followers that this was one of the many times they combined families for the holiday–further proof that they were very confident with where their relationship was.

December 2017

@arod/Instagram

Along with the power couple’s magazine cover debut on the December issue of “Vanity Fair”, the duo also debuted their new (and catchy) portmanteau: J-Rod (we’re pretty sure they had it trademarked before they went public).

January 2018

@arod/Instagram

Lopez and Rodriguez showed their Latinx pride by visiting Puerto Rico in January after Hurricane Maria devastated the island.

February 2018

@harpersbazaarus/Instagram

In the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar, JLo got candid about her relationship with A-Rod and addressed the possibility of a wedding on the horizon. “I do believe in marriage,” she said. “And I would love to grow old with somebody in a committed relationship. But I’m not forcing anything right now. It’s good, it’s healthy; we communicate well…We have a similar makeup.” All signs point to yes!

May 7, 2018

@Balmain/Twitter

JLo and A-Rod attended their second Met Gala as a couple in matching couture Balmain outfits, cementing their status as style icons.

July 2018

@arod/Instagram

Lopez and Rodriguez spent her 49th birthday in one of their go-to vacation spots: The Bahamas. A-Rod took to Instagram to share a cute pic of their blended family on vacation along with a heartfelt tribute to his lady love. ” For someone who has been about giving everything she has 365 days a year—to our children, our families, the world,” he said. “I hope today, we can give you all the happiness you deserve. I love you mucho”.

August 2018

@KissChattanooga/Twitter

A-Rod’s reaction to JLo’s epic VMA’s performance last August became a viral sensation, as his pride over his girlfriend’s triple-threat skills were all too apparent. Twitter was full of women wanting a man who looks at them like ARod looks at JLo.

October 2018

@jrod_rodriguez13/Instagram

A-Rod continued to support his girlfriend by attending events that were obviously important to her. In October, Rodriguez accompanied Lopez to Elle’s famous “Women in Hollywood” event. That night, he posted a supportive message to JLo on his Instagram: “With two young daughters and a woman I admire by my side, I know how important it is that we raise women up and teach our girls that there is no limit to what they can do.”

December 2018

@arod/Instagram

According to their Instagram accounts, J-Rod spent New Years eve in Malibu, again with their blended family. Rodriguez’s caption read: “As the sun sets on 2018, from our family to yours … #HappyNewYear everyone!”.

February 2019

@arod/Instagram

Lopez took her athlete-beau to the ultimate glamour event: The Oscars. The two shined in evening wear and Rodriguez was solidly by her side while she strutted the red carpet and presented awards.

March 2019

@arod/Instagram

On March 9th, J-Rod announced that they were engaged with mutual Instagram posts sharing the news. The Instagram posts showed off the 15-carat emerald-cut diamond engagement ring, which is reported to be worth up to a cool $5 million.

March 10th, 2019

@JoseCanseco / Twitter

On Sunday night, former Major League Baseball player Jose Canseco accused A-Rod of cheating on J.Lo with his ex-wife, Jennifer Canseco. Before we get ahead of ourselves, it’s important to realize that Canseco has a history of making some pretty out-there statements (i.e. asking his Twitter followers to “spend the day with me and my alien Buddies”and insisting that he’s acquainted with “Bigfoot and a real alien”). In other words: there’s reason to doubt his word.

As of now, both JLo and ARod have remained silent in response to these explosive allegations, so there’s no way of knowing the veracity of the claims. Until then, all we can do is speculate and hope for the best!

J Lo’s Famous Green Dress Has Made A Comeback In Versace’s Spring/Summer 2020 Campaign

@hypebae / Twitter

While some younger folks may not remember Jenny from the Block, EVERYONE knows who J Lo is. An iconic, impactful, and inspiring presence in Hollywood since the 1990s, Jennifer Lopez continues to blow our minds as an incredibly talented actress and performer (Have you seen Hustlers yet? Hot damn.). And in case she doesn’t impress you enough with her tireless schedule and extensive resume, have you ever laid eyes on this woman? It’s become almost cliché, but J Lo truly seems to defy the process of aging—if anything, she is actually becoming more gorgeous over time. J Lo just turned 50, and in addition to wowing us with her grace, authenticity, and talent, she is a living example of how nutrition and exercise can really work wonders on a person—OR, let’s face it, she might just a mystical creature who is totally untouched by the laws of biology. Quién sabe.

With all this in mind, it may come as a shock that J Lo—though she certainly knows she’s a queen—hasn’t always been convinced of her ability to kick life’s booty as an independent woman. In a recent interview with The New York Times Magazine, J Lo spoke about her role in Hustlers, saying, “I’ve always been so much a romantic, so much about having a relationship, and this woman is the total opposite. And to play that, to live in those shoes, to walk in those very high heels, in that skin, made me realize I’m out here on my own.”

“That’s what I need to teach my daughter,” she added. “That aspect of it: that you can do it on your own.”

And when you examine J Lo’s career, she has truly done so much, visibly growing and evolving as an artist since her breakout role in the 1997 Selena biopic.

Several folks may not know that amid all of J Lo’s hot bops and cinematic hits, she also pioneered Google Images . . . well, kind of. She didn’t so much as “pioneer” Google Images as inspire its creation back in 2000. And why, you might ask, was J Lo the reason for this now-ubiquitous tool, a tool utilized on a literally constant basis to search all kinds of random content?

Oh, we’ll tell you why. You might remember a dress—a green dress, with long sleeves, a plunging neckline, and sheer jungle-print fabric that trailed all the way to the floor. An exotic dress. A Versace dress. This exotic Versace dress:

Credit: Jennifer Lopez / YouTube

Jennifer Lopez wore this dress to the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards in 2000, and people were SHOOK. They took to the internet, hoping to find photos of this groundbreaking moment in fashion, but they fell short—at the time, Google only loaded text-based search results. And while it took some time for Google Images to come about after this frenzy, J Lo is credited as the impetus for its existence.

In 2015, former Google CEO and executive chairman Eric Schmidt wrote on Project Syndicate, “People wanted more than just text. This first became apparent after the 2000 Grammy Awards, where Jennifer Lopez wore a green dress that, well, caught the world’s attention. At the time, it was the most popular search query we had ever seen. But we had no surefire way of getting users exactly what they wanted: J­Lo wearing that dress. Google Image Search was born.”

And the Google Image search for the green dress has persisted over the past 20 years. Cathy Edwards, director of engineering and product for Google Images, told GQ that “people are still doing queries for ‘Jennifer Lopez green dress,’ ‘Jennifer Lopez jungle print dress,’ ‘Jennifer Lopez Grammys dress,’ [that] sort of thing.” And now those searches are probably surging right now, for a couple of reasons.

J Lo appeared in a remixed version of that infamous green dress back in September, when Versace debuted its Spring/Summer 2020 collection at Milan Fashion Week. And recently, she’s appeared in a Versace ad campaign with Kendall Jenner, rocking futuristic digs that “explore the blurring of lines between public and private life in today’s internet society,” according to an Instagram caption.

In a statement about her recent collaboration with Versace, J Lo said, “In terms of my career, the Jungle dress really marked a moment in time. To me, Versace represents empowerment and putting something beautiful out into the world. It’s a dream to collaborate with my friend Donatella again on this gorgeous campaign and to create something new and fresh out of a piece of iconic fashion history. 

Well, we’re excited too, J Lo. Just check the Google Image stats for this new iteration of that classic green dress.
