Jennifer Lopez has been a household name since the mid-nineties and has given us multiple banging tunes and feel-good movies. But perhaps the most relatable thing about her? She's struggling with homeschooling her kids during the pandemic too...

JLo and Alex Rodriguez went public in 2017.

The loved up pair were both cautious about who they dated publicly and kept their relationship under wraps for some time. Speaking in the April of 2017 on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Rodriguez talked about how the pair hooked up.

JLo's a woman that gets what she wants.

Rodriguez told Ellen that, upon encountering the star: "We basically had a small chit-chat... and she says, 'You have my number, reach out.' And I went home that night and reached out." They make it seem so easy!

Rodriguez and Lopez had known each other for some time...

Way back when, in 2005, Lopez attended a New York Yankees game with her then-husband, Marc Anthony.

They were like ships passing at night.

In an adorable throwback shared by Rodriguez on Instagram earlier this year, he proved he'd had his eyes on JLo for a long while. Almost twenty years ago, a much younger Rodriquez asked JLo for her autograph. Life can indeed be funny, Alex.

Would you look at them now!

After their whirlwind romance, the pair quickly settled into each other's lives. I mean, matching PJs, come on...

Both JLo and Rodriquez have children from previous marriages.

This modern family certainly seems to be tight-knit. Jennifer Lopez has twins, Maximilian “Max" David, and Emme Maribe, from her previous marriage to Marc Anthony. Rodriguez has daughters Ella Alexander, eleven and Natasha Alexander, fourteen, from his previous marriage to a lady called Cynthia Scurtis.

It seems as if all of the kids are totally down for this romance.

There appears to be no animosity from either side, and the 2 families have fused into one big happy family.

I mean, who wouldn't want JLo as their step-mom?

Frankly, I think the success of this modern family is that both parties have dived in and invested in each other's children's lives.

Celebrating success with the whole family.

As this Instagram post by Rodriquez reveals, this family is a unit. When celebrating Alex's daughter, Natasha's, graduation as a Freshman, the whole family was present. It seems as though JLo and Rodriquez's ex, Cynthia, get along just fine.

The couple aren't the only ones with matching PJs...

In a sweet post on JLo's Instagram, she shared a shot of Rodriguez and her son, Max, donning matching pajama bottoms. Daddy cool, eh?

Family is really important to both JLo and Alex Rodriguez.

What first attracted JLo to the baseball star was his evident family values. Turning fifty-years-old this year, JLo was no longer interested in dating boys. The Hustlers star wanted to date a real man, someone to raise a family with.

Rodriguez's daughters are his world.

When planning the big day, both JLo and Alex Rodriguez wanted to ensure their children were involved and the day was as much about them all being a family as it was the pair getting hitched.

The couple that works out together...

...stays together, right? It seems, after both having plenty of relationship experience under their belts, this time around, they've got it just right.


In this sweet post, Rodriguez proudly posts his beautiful modern family. We can expect now that the pair are married that this family model will continue growing from strength to strength.

In March 2019, Rodriguez put a ring on it.

Would you look at the size of that thing! I mean, I think it's safe to say that that diamond could crack a few eggs.

JLo has certainly bagged Mr. Suave.

Not that Rodriguez - also known as A-Rod - has always had his life so together. The former baseball player turned sports presenter has had a rocky road to salvation. His first marriage to Cynthia ended in a messy divorce, with accusations that Rodriguez had extramarital affairs and had "emotionally abandoned" his wife and children. There were even rumors he had cheated on his wife with Madonna!

Back in the day, Rodriguez was quite the player...

And I'm talking about the baseball-playing kind. Young, rich, and attractive with a sea of celebrity friends... can we really blame the young sportsman for getting a bit carried away?

Rodriguez is certainly on the straight and narrow now.

At forty-four-years old, Alex Rodriguez has certainly proven that he's ready to be the committed family man. With his crush of over twenty years on his arm, it's safe to say that this is one guy that got a really lucky second chance in love.

The Obamas certainly approve of the union!

Upon announcing their engagement, Alex shared that the loved-up couple received a letter from Michelle and Barack Obama. In the heartfelt note, Barack Obama shared some of his marriage wisdom. After being married for twenty-six years he said: "Whatever challenges life may bring, sharing them with someone you love makes it all better." Oh, you guys!!

Anyway, time to prove that these 2 aren't only ridiculously beautiful and madly in love...

They're also absolutely hilarious!

This week, J-Lo made a very relatable admission.

Many of us are struggling with homeschooling our kids - and it seems Lopez is no exception.

She was interviewed (via videolink) by Ellen DeGeneres.

And she offered some experiences any new-to-homeschooling parent can relate to.

"Honestly, I think we're all like, what is this?"

"I'm not a teacher, and also, have you seen the maths that they make the kids do now? It's a new maths."

"Half the time I'm like, 'OK, yeah, let's look up that word. What does that mean? It's been an experience, for sure."

Here's the full interview.

Ellen has actually caught some flak during lockdown for some rather off-color comments. Scroll on for that story ...
