Jennifer Lopez Recalls Her First Date With Alex Rodriguez: “He Didn’t Know It Was A Date”
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are both on the top of popularity. They are attractive, famous, talented, and look so great together. Today, we want to reveal some facts on how they met, their first date, and the reason these two get along so well.
Jai Lo tells how she first met Rodriguez
Jennifer and Alex first met on a baseball game almost twelve years ago. At that time, J Lo was married to Marc Antony. She and Alex just shook their hands and said a couple of words to each other, having no idea they will meet again and fall in love.
Next time, Lopez met Rodriguez when he was walking to have a lunch in Beverly Hills. The star confessed she is a pretty shy person, but at that moment, she thought it was the only right thing to say “Hello.” It was some kind of the sixth sense that moved her and she said to Alex:
You don’t have to say you remember me if you don’t. Shea Stadium, during a subway series.
Alex remembered that day, and he was totally mesmerized by J Lo’s look - jeans, Timberlands, and a curly short hair. He said she was so beautiful. Soon, Rodriguez called Jennifer and asked her to have a dinner.
Their first date
Their first date was at the Hotel Bel-Air. Later, Lopez confessed the most hilarious thing was that Rodriguez didn’t understand they were actually on a date. He was wearing a white shirt and talked about the things, which people usually don’t tell each other on the first date. Jennifer said:
So he’s talking, talking about his plans, about how he had just retired from baseball, about how he saw himself getting married again, all these things you wouldn’t normally talk about on a first date.
Alex said he was not sure it was a date. He thought it was a late dinner for two people who know each other and have common themes to talk about.
Maybe we were seeing each other at night because of her work schedule? I went in uneasy, not knowing her situation.
Secret of happy relationship
J Lo says the reason why her relationships with Alex are so perfect is that they totally understand each other. They both know what it means to be famous, have kids, and feel lonely sometimes. She added they are like twins.
I understand him in a way that I don’t think anyone else could, and he understands me in a way that no one else could ever. We both had ups and downs and challenges in our 30s, and by our 40s we’d both been through so much.
Jennifer and Alex are both family-oriented people. They love to spend time together with their kids – her twins and his two daughters. The couple also said if they met years ago, their relationship wouldn’t have worked because they had to discover themselves first. Fortunately, they met each other at the right moment.
