- Jennifer Lopez opened up about her relationship with Alex Rodriguez and explained why people keep asking the couple about marriage.
- “Everyone wants a fairy tale,” she told USA Today during an interview. “They all want a romantic comedy, a happy ending. We all do. But it’s not a movie, even if you see us on Instagram or on the shows.”
- The actress and singer added that they’re “happy” and “taking it day-by-day.”
“Everyone wants a fairy tale,” she told USA Today during an interview. “They all want a romantic comedy, a happy ending. We all do. But it’s not a movie, even if you see us on Instagram or on the shows.”
The “Second Act” star added that even though she and the former baseball player have been going steady for more than one year, they’re not rushing into tying the knot.
“We’re happy,” she said. “We’re taking it day-by-day. And it’s great.”
In recent months, Lopez and Rodriguez have shared videos from their joint workout sessions, red carpet appearances, and photos with their children. The singer has two kids named Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony and Rodriguez has two daughters, Natasha and Ella, from his previous marriage to Cynthia Scurtis.
“2018 has really moved us to place where we feel like a real family,” Lopez said. “That’s nice. And it’s good enough right now.”
Recently, Lopez was grilled about her relationship during an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” The talk show host sneakily lied to the 49-year-old and said that Rodriguez told her that he was planning on proposing to Lopez, but the singer didn’t fall for it.
When DeGeneres asked if Lopez and Rodriguez are actually getting married, Lopez explained that she wasn’t sure, but they have “been together a couple of years and it’s nice.”
In July, the “Dinero” singer also said that she wasn’t rushing into a wedding with Rodriguez because she’s “made plenty of mistakes” in the past. Lopez married Anthony in 2004 and separated in 2011. Before that, she was married to Ojani Noa in the late ’90s, married to Cris Judd in the early 2000s, and engaged to Ben Affleck.
“We’re mature now,” she said on “Good Morning America.” “We’re grownups and we’re going take our time and do things at our own pace.”
