Alex Rodriguez Says He Hopes to Marry Jennifer Lopez in the Fall

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez only started dating in 2017, but when you know, you know. The two have quickly become one of today’s biggest power couples, and in February 2019, Rodriguez proposed to the singer and actress. The two have taken their time wedding planning, but Rodriguez recently revealed that he thinks the fall would be the perfect time to tie the knot.

Rodriguez and Lopez first met back in 2005 and started dating in 2017

When Lopez and Rodriguez first met, there were no sparks. The couple’s initial introduction came back in 2005 when Lopez attended a Yankee game with her then-husband, Marc Anthony. Rodriguez and Lopez only interacted for a moment, but apparently, it left a lasting impression on both of them. 12 years later, Lopez spotted Rodriguez outside of a restaurant and felt compelled to go up and say hello to him. He clearly appreciated the gesture; he called her that night and asked her out to dinner. People were quick to notice the couple was spending time together, and it didn’t take long before dating rumors started.

Rodriguez proposed to Lopez in the Bahamas earlier this year

Rodriguez, Lopez, and their kids all took a trip to the Bahamas this past February, and Rodriguez told Jimmy Fallon that he rehearsed with his assistant on three separate days before actually getting on one knee. The family was on a quick winter getaway when Rodriguez popped the question with a massive diamond ring. Interestingly, he also wore his World Series ring when he proposed. He told Fallon he tends to wear it for special occasions. “I only have worn this ring probably a handful of times,” he said. Thankfully, Lopez said yes, and their blended family had a big reason to celebrate on their trip.

The couple has taken their time planning, but Rodriguez recently said he wants a fall wedding

Although the two got engaged in February, as of April, they said they hadn’t given much thought to wedding planning. Both of them went back to work as soon as their trip was over, and they’re taking their time with planning everything out. However, in an interview with Good Day New York on June 3, Rodriguez said he’d like to marry Lopez in the fall. “I think the fall would be cool,” he said. “It’s when the World Series happens.” Good Day host Rosanna Scotto said Rodriguez might be trying to stump fans by saying the fall, and he laughed. Rodriguez and Lopez have kept any wedding decisions they’ve made very private.

The couple has been very open about how well their families have bonded during their relationship

Rodriguez and Lopez each have two children; Rodriguez has two girls, and Lopez has a boy and a girl who are twins. They say one of the best parts of their relationship has been how well their kids get along. The two often post photos of the kids together, and Rodriguez said all four of them attend school in Miami and love it. Not all children get along in blended families, but Rodriguez said each of the kids are like the siblings they never had.
