Two years of laughter Two years of fun Two years of adventures Of excitement of growing and learning Of true friendship And so much love!!

A tap on the shoulder is how all their relationship started. Jenifer and Alex met for the first time May 2005 during a Yankees vs Mets game while both were still married to their now ex-spouses. Jenifer was with Marc Anthony and Alex was with Cynthia Scurtis. Fast forward to 2016 and after their divorces, Lopez sees Rodriguez outside a restaurant in Beverly Hills and feels like approaching him despite the fact that this is very unusual for her as she revealed to Vanity Fair.
“I could literally have just walked away but I walk over and tap him on the shoulder and say “Hey”…It was just one of those things where you feel compelled to do, something you wouldn’t normally do.”
Hours later Alex called and asked her out for dinner and well, the rest is history. The couple have a lot in common, as ARod made it clear;
“We’re both Leos; we’re both from New York; we’re both Latino and about 20 other things.”
Jenifer also made a little comparison herself relating her life and ARod’s, their successes and failures and making the similarities the main reason of how well they understand each other.
On a more personal level, Jenifer and Alex are family oriented. Both of them have children from previous marriages; Alex has 2 daughters, Natasha and Ella with ex-wife Cynthia, and Jenifer has twins, Max and Emme, with ex-husband Marc Anthony. This power couple seems to have figured out a way to make this blended family work. They often post images of family quality time and the simple things they enjoy doing together like getting ice cream.
As for the cheating rumors which came from Jose Canseco, a former Yankee player, accusing Alex of cheating on Jennifer with his wife in a series of tweets; Jen doesn’t seem to be bothered by the rumors as a source told Us Weekly.
“She has heard the cheating rumors in the past and has never let it bother her,” the source said. “She trusts [Alex] and his love. They are inseparable and together almost all of the time. Jose Canseco has an ax to grind, but she doesn’t hear the noise.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
