Don’t fear the world. The power couple of Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are still going to get married. The two were engaged earlier in 2019, but COVID-19 has likely halted any type of real wedding planning. Hollywood’s most adorable power couple have been waiting for this day for a very long time and want to make the moment perfect. 

The two have known each other for 15 years and have a rich timeline to go with their relationship. Take a look at how this moment built to fruition. 

The Early Phase

In 2005, Lopez was married to her ex-husband Marc Anthony the two were attending a baseball game between the New York Mets and New York Yankees. Back then, A-Rod was looking as fresh as a dead or alive slot, and he was one of the highest-paid baseball players in the world. Lopez is on record describing that first meeting as “electric.” Lopez and Anthony remained married until 2011 and finalized their divorce in 2014. They have two children together. 

As for Rodriguez, he was married to Cynthia Scurtis from 2002 to 2008. Their marriage also resulted in two children as well. However, A-Rod has always been drawn to J-Lo, having once mentioned that he asked for a signed photo in the late 90s as she rose to stardom.

The Connection

A-Rod didn’t find an online casino or learn a musical instrument after his retirement from baseball. He ended up establishing a relationship with Lopez. Around 2017, A-Rod reconnected and asked Lopez out on a date. According to multiple interviews televised across multiple networks, the date went well. The couple talked about their horoscopes and interests. Rodriguez even had first date jitters. 

Over the course of the next couple of months, the paparazzi could sight the two together frequently. The couple were spotted leaving multiple restaurants, holding hands, and basically acting like a couple. It was the middle of the summer of 2017 when Lopez posted a picture on Instagram of her, Rodriguez, and the combined four children hanging out by the pool. The two shared pictures of visiting France, Italy, New York, and Miami. The star-studded couple really seemed to be into each other. 

Leading To Marriage

In 2018, the media rushed to the idea that the two were going to get married. Instead, Lopez deferred those questions by saying she wasn’t in a rush to get married. That was completely understandable. She had ended a relationship that was nearly 10 years and had just entered the dating pool again. However, the relationship seemed to be growing. The two were going to luxurious events together. That included the Met Gala, the Super Bowl when Lopez performed, and many red carpet events. When A-Rod was calling Sunday Night Baseball games for ESPN, once could see Lopez in attendance sometimes. 

Finally, in March 2019, Rodriguez popped the question and asked Lopez to marry him in the Bahamas. The two have been going strong even during the quarantine. In September 2020, Lopez posted a picture on Instagram of all four kids and the couple and called the moment a “blessing.” In 2021, the couple might be able to finally enjoy their special day.
