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.”

In Honor of J.Lo Being Nominated for the People’s Icon Award, Here Are Her Most Iconic Moments:

Entertainment

In Honor of J.Lo Being Nominated for the People’s Icon Award, Here Are Her Most Iconic Moments:

Put your drinks up! J.Lo has broken barriers yet again! Jennifer Lopez will receive the People’s Icon Award at the 2020 People’s Choice Awards. “Jennifer Lopez has an unmatched global appeal and for more than two decades, has given us some of the most iconic, unforgettable performances of all time,” Jen Neal, General Manager of E! News, Live Events & Lifestyle Digital, said in a statement. And we could not agree more, not only has J.Lo given us so many iconic moments in the fashion, film, and music industry, she has opened the door for more representation of the LatinX community in the entertainment industry.

 To celebrate, we compiled a list of Jennifer Lopez’s most iconic moments. 

1. Selena (1997)

There’s no doubt that the role of Selena became a defining moment of J.Lo’s career. The movie solidified Lopez’s rise to fame and saw her become the first Latina in the United States to earn $1 million for a starring role in a feature film. All while representing one of the most impactful and loved Latina artists. J.Lo’s performance as Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, the “Queen of Tejano music” will forever be remembered. 

2. Green Versace Dress (2000)

 Twenty years have passed since J.Lo appeared at the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards in 2000 wearing the infamous green Versace dress but to this day it remains one of the most talked about runway moments of all time. Fun fact: Google Images was invented because of the high demand of users wanting to see a picture of Lopez in the dress. Of course, the dress has proven to be more than just a blip in fashion history. In 2019, J.Lo walked in the Versace show wearing a redesigned version of the dress to celebrate the 20th anniversary of it. There’s only one word to describe this: Timeless. 

3. The Wedding Planner (2001)

Columbia Pictures

Who doesn’t love rom coms? Especially when Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey play the love interests. Lopez’s dance moves once again prove her talent as a dancer in the tango scene. To date, The Wedding Planner remains a fan favorite among J.Lo’s supporters.

4. “Jenny From the Block” 

In 2002, Jennifer Lopez released “Jenny From the Block,” one of her most popular singles, which at one point reached number three on the U.S. BillBoard Hot 100. The song is about how international fame and wealth could not change the girl from the Bronx. The song also ultimately inspired one of J.Lo’s lovingly crafted nicknames.

5. “On the Floor”  music video 

As of today, the 2011 music video featuring Pitbull, a.k.a Mr. Worldwide has 1.6 billion views on YouTube. “On the Floor” is the most viewed of J.Lo’s music videos. It is an extravagant and lavish production. The music video shows Lopez as the queen of the club, but also as the talented dancer that she is.

6. J.Lo’s appearance on James Corden Carpool Karaoke in 2016

The highlight of her appearance is when Corden grabbed her phone to text one of her famous contacts which included Cristiano Ronaldo, Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson, and Demi Lovato. Corden decided to text Leonardo DiCaprio, asking for suggestions to “cut loose,” he signed the text “J.Lo (you know, from the block).” They got a response back a few minutes later that read: “Tonight boo, boo? Club-wise?” This is for sure was a hilarious and priceless moment. Who has so many famous A-listers in their contacts? The one and only Jenny from the Block. 

7. Met Gala (2018)

The 2018 Met Gala had some of the most glamorous looks for its “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” theme. J.Lo totally rocked the theme with a Balmain gown full of gems and a feathered train, this look earned the 7th spot for some of Jennifer Lopez’s most iconic moments.

8. Hustlers (2019)

Youtube/STX Films

J.Lo’s role as Ramona, a leader of a group of women who scam and drug rich men, was a career-best performance, but it did not receive the recognition it deserved. After the Academy Awards released the 2020 nominees, many noticed that Lopez had been snubbed for a Best Supporting Actress nomination. J.Lo’s solo pole dancing scene in Hustlers shows how much dedication and passion she puts into her roles. She took some of her training and skills for the Hustlers movie into her 2020 Super Bowl halftime show. 

9. Super Bowl Half-time (2020)

The Super Bowl is one of the most extravagant live shows and Jennifer Lopez lived up to the moment. Her performance alongside Shakira is one of the best Super Bowl halftime shows of all time. She proudly wore the Puerto Rican flag as she sang alongside her daughter, Emme Maribel Muñiz. J.Lo’s performance was a fun and uplifting celebration of Latinx heritage as she sang alongside Colombian artist, J. Balvin. Also, let’s not forget the #JLoTikTokChallenge that went viral all over TikTok.

10. TikTok with A-Rod

@jlo

Wait for it…😂♥️ @arod13

♬ Nonstop – Bella

On March 8, 2020, J.Lo posted a soon to be viral TikTok on her page. She did the “Flip the Switch” challenge with her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, a.k.a. A-Rod.

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!
