I’m Puerto Rican And I Will Always Fantasize About J.Lo And Marc Anthony’s Lovely Wedding

There is a new royal couple in England. Another royal couple announced that they’re having a baby, at the wedding, which is apparently a royal snafu because everyone is so proper and conscious of each other’s space in every other part of the world.

While we send blessings to the new couple, there is only one royal wedding I can ever remember following was that of Puerto Rican royalty Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. I remember the gasps and the bendiciones and the tias lighting candles for them. Who can forget the chisme?

Her name is Princess Eugenie and she married Jack Brooksbank.

Did you know that Brooksbank works as a brand ambassador for Casamigos tequila? Now you do. More than 800 people showed up but you probably only really know that Cara Develigne showed up because she made a top hat look guapísima.

There is one recorded Latina mother who cares at all about the royal family.

We scoured the internet for commentary by Latinos on the royal family. Daniel makes a good point and counterpoint. Should we even be speaking Spanish? ????

It made me think about the time we all lit candles to bless the royal Puerto Rican union between Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez.

So, let us tell you the love story of Boricua royalty and their lineage. The two met while Anthony was performing “The Capeman” on Broadway in 1998. That same year, Lopez divorced her first husband, Ojani Noa.

The two dated briefly back in the day, but nothing came of it.

P.S. this is not their wedding attire, but a shot on set from a film they both were working on in 2006. Trust that these are not their wedding photos.

In 2002, Lopez got engaged to Ben Affleck.

My Boricua mother and non-Boricua father were freaking out that their celebrity mirrors were about to tie the knot. Como sabemos, they “postponed” the wedding just hours before they were to walk down the aisle and eventually split.

Basically, within seconds of the split, these two old friends started secretly dating.

If you were Puerto Rican, it was no secret. Everyone and their mother was talking about, “Has visto? They were holding hands,” y “Solo meses despues de Ben, támbien.” Everyone was spilling the same old tea.

Nobody knew that they got married until we noticed their incredible wedding rings.

It’s kind of hard to miss a 7.5 carat blue diamond ring on an international pop star. The story goes that they invited just their close family within days of the wedding to a “party” at J.Lo’s Beverly Hills home.

You’re looking at the only royal photo that ever, ever leaked.

I’m sure that after the public havoc of Affleck and Lopez’ postponed wedding, she wanted something private. Rumors starting going around a few days before and papparazi were reporting a white tent being delivered to Lopez’ house.

People everywhere were swearing these two wouldn’t last three months. They were married for 7 years.

The tabloids at the time were running bits from allegedly acclaimed family therapists who could professionally diagnose J.Lo as a love addict and say with no judgement whatsoever, “The rebounding – please!” Girl, bye.

Four years into the marriage, Lopez got pregnant with twins!

Of course they had twins. They’re royalty. The twins are one boy and one girl, because they were literal perfection with names like Maximilian and Emme to match.

The love was definitely there in their marriage.

In an interview with Latina magazine in 2010, just a year and a half before they separated, Lopez said, “Everything is great about my marriage. First and foremost, we love each other, truly love each other in a way that’s very deep and meaningful, not in a superficial sort of way. There’s a deep respect, admiration and love for each other.

We honestly believe that we make each other better people…We force each other to be better, and I think in a relationship, that’s how it should be. You shouldn’t be with somebody if he makes you feel less than who you are.”

I mean, look at these two on the Puerto Rican Day Parade float in NYC.

Tell me that is not the look of true love? The two have now been divorced as long as they were married and we Boricuas cannot let go of the love.

“I knew very quickly that it wasn’t the right thing.”

That said, J.Lo has since admitted to W that she knew early on that the marriage was a wrong fit. “I hung in there for seven years,” in her own words.

But since then, they’ve shared on-stage kisses…

At the 2016 Latin Grammy Awards, the two debuted their single “Olvídame y Pega la Vuelta,” and ended it with a big, fat, juicy kiss. The song is so reminiscent of their love and every time I belt it out in the car, I go home and light another candle for their romance.

Ok, but it was just a ‘friendly’ kiss, made obvious by Marc Anthony posting a million pictures of him kissing mostly male friends on Instagram.

They campaigned together in Miami to raise money for Hillary Clinton’s campaign in the 2016 race.

Royalty supporting royalty. Whatever you feel about the imperfections of Hillary Clinton as a presidential candidate, she is a glowing star compared to President Trump.

Thank you for trying, Boricua King and Queen.

They’ve partnered to raise money for Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria devastated the island.

They crowdfunded and performed for Puerto Rico’s hurricane relief fund. Y’know, the one that didn’t exist until they created it.

The truth is, the most royal love they share is in their bloodline.

When Latina interviewed both Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony just before they split, J-Lo said, “I believe in destiny and I believe that things are going to be what they’re gonna be and for whatever reason, we were meant to share this time together.”

The destiny es en los hijos.

They have coparented like a first class unit, in and out of marriage.

Their love for their kids will always keep them in each other’s lives. Plus, we all know that J.Lo is with A-Rod now, and it seems like he is welcomed into the family.

The only reason I ship A-Rod and J.Lo is because he so obviously worships her like La Reina she is. You might be worthy.

For Boricuas, however, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony will forever be our honorary King and Queen.

The fact that royal blood will never tear them apart makes them the only people we can count on to care for Puerto Rico, ayuda Puerto Rico and be Puerto Rico.

J.Lo Posted BTS Super Bowl Footage And Shared Her Booty Shaking “Tutorial” With Shakira

Jennifer Lopez and Shakira owned the Super Bowl halftime show this year. The Puerto Rican and Colombian singers cranked up the sexy and talent with a halftime show we are still talking about.

J.Lo shared some behind-the-scene moments from her Super Bowl halftime show.

J.Lo and Shakira’s Super Bowl halftime show brought in 103 million viewers. This was a 4 percent increase from the previous year, which was Maroon 5. Three million more people enjoyed the show and it caused more than a thousand people to call and complain because many complained that it was too sexual.

But everyone is obsessing over the last video in the post.

In the final video, J.Lo and Shakira are going over the choreography. The move they are trying to nail is the booty shake and Shakira asks J.Lo how she does it. Fortunately, you can hear what they say and J.Lo responds.

“I do it with my knees,” J.Lo told Shakira before laughing. “When you shake your knees, your butt goes. My mother taught me that when I was four.”

Her former costar from “Hustlers” had to comment and quote J.Lo.

We hope that this is something that J.Lo taught the women he worked with on the movie. It is pretty solid advice for good booty shaking. Let’s face it, we all know that J.Lo’s booty-shaking is a move she does time and time again. She does it because she is good at it and people like to see it. Now we know how she does it.

People are living for this content.

Lol. Honestly, this isn’t surprising. Anything we ever wanted to know, we asked our parents. Our parents are usually just really fun and there is the openness with our parents when it comes to things in the home. It is a fun, safe bubble where we all let ourselves be ourselves.

There was some confusion because Shakira is known for her dancing.

In J.Lo’s defense, booty-shaking is completely different than shaking your hips. It requires a different kind of movement in your body. Hips and booty move differently and J.Lo might also need advice from Shakira on how to shake her hips.

The post is bringing memories back for everyone about the halftime show that shook the NFL world.

More than 1,000 people complained to the FCC claiming that the show was overly sexual. The claims sparked fierce debate on social media about the merits of the claims and the visuals of the performance. The debate was split with people arguing that those complaining where policing brown bodies.

However, the most obvious thing people are doing is learning a new move for the end of quarantine.

The end of the quarantine is everything that they have all wanted to celebrate for a long time. Thankfully, J.Lo gave us a chance to learn something new while still social distancing and self-isolating.

A-Rod And J.Lo Are Trying To Raise Enough Money To Buy The New York Mets

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are always in the headlines. The power couple was vocal and present when it came to helping Puerto Rico after the devastating hurricanes in 2017. Then their engagement set the Internet on fire. Now, with a wedding postponed, the couple found another way to grab headlines thanks to the New York Mets.

Alex Rodriguez and J.Lo are allegedly considering buying the New York Mets.

First reported by Variety, several reports allege that J.Lo and A-Rod have retained JP Morgan Chase to help raise the funds needed to make the purchase of the New York Mets. The baseball team was founded after both the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants left leaving behind no baseball for city residents.

A-Rod and J.Lo aren’t the first people interested in the baseball team.

According to Variety, the Wilpon family, the current owners, were trying to sell 80 percent of the team to hedge fund manager Steve Cohen. The team was valued at $2.6 billion ahead of that deal. The deal with Cohen fell through which put the New York Mets back up for sale.

People are comparing this move to buy the New York Mets to mirroring his former teammate Derek Jeter.

Jeter is a part-owner of the Miami Marlins owning 4 percent of the Florida team. For his 4 percent, Jeter reportedly paid $25 million in a deal valued at $1.2 billion. Combined, J.Lo and A-Rod have a net value of $700 million meaning they would need to partner with some other deep-pocket investors. JP Morgan Chase would have to help J.Lo and A-Rod find people to make up the rest of the $2.4 billion deal.

A-Rod, a former professional baseball player is familiar with the Mets.

A-Rod was considering signing with the Mets when he was a free agent. Instead, A-Rod signed with the Texas Rangers before being traded to the New York Yankees. While at the Yankees with Jeter, A-Rod helped the team win a World Series.

We will all just have to wait and see if the power couple ends up being part-owners of the Mets.

One thing is for sure, A-Rod has some expertise in what makes a baseball franchise great. It also shouldn’t be too surprising that a former baseball player of A-Rod’s caliber is purchasing a Major League Baseball team. It just seems like a natural progression of his involvement with the sport.

What do you think about the potential selling of the New York Mets?
