Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez may have only been dating since February 2017, but we already can’t imagine them not being together. They actually kept their relationship under wraps for a little while, so the exact timeline of when they started dating was originally a bit unclear. However, in February 2018, Lopez announced during a concert in Minneapolis that she and Rodriguez were celebrating one year together.

“We’ve been together for one year today,” she revealed. “I don’t want to get all mushy or anything, but baby, this song’s for you. I love you.”

That’s just one of the many loving things Lopez and Rodriguez have said about each other. Here are their most adorable quotes about their relationship.

On how their families get along so well

Both Lopez and Rodriguez have brought children into their relationship. And luckily, they’ve quickly formed a strong bond. Rodriguez has two children, Ella and Natasha, while Lopez the a mother to Maximilian and Emme. Lopez told the Cubby and Carolina in the Morning radio show:

They love each other, they get along so good. We couldn’t have asked for more … that stuff can be tricky sometimes and I think a lot of people understand that. I’ve had other relationships where it’s been tricky but with these four it really works nicely.

On why they started dating at the perfect time in their lives

Considering Lopez and Rodriguez started dating in their 40s, some might think they got a late start on their relationship. However, Lopez is grateful they met a bit later in life than in their 20s. She explained why on the Cubby and Carolina in the Morning radio show:

I think we’re both in a good place in our lives. And I think maybe if we would have met in our 20s, maybe not so much … we were both … we’re too crazy. But now at this point in our lives where we both have kids, we both have accomplished certain things in our careers and we’re kinda in that second act of our lives, we really complement each other. It’s like, where I need help, he’s really strong and where he needs help I’m really strong. When two people just fit together really well — he and I are like that.

On how they’re making it work

Rodriguez knows that any good relationship takes effort. Luckily, their lives mesh together perfectly, which surely makes it easier to put in the work. He explained to Extra:

If you want to be together, you are together … Our kids get along really well, we’re both from New York, we’re both Latin, we’re both in our 40s, we’re really enjoying life, but she really is one of the most impressive and smartest human beings I have ever met.

On making each other better

Lopez may have been in a few high-profile relationships over the years, but she wasn’t afraid to admit that her relationship with Rodriguez is the best she’s ever been in. She spilled to HOLA! USA:

I’m in a good relationship. I feel like I can say that for the first time — I don’t know — maybe ever. And not that I didn’t have great relationships, full of love and adventure, but this is the first relationship I’ve been where I feel like we really make each other better. We complement each other, and there’s really pure, true love. Just wanting to support the other person and make them happy. So there’s a different selflessness in the love that’s beautiful and different. And healthy!

On Rodriguez being Lopez’s ‘twin soul’

When Lopez accepted the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, she couldn’t help but take the opportunity to gush about her beau. “Alex. You’re like my twin soul. We’re like mirror images of each other,” Lopez said. “You know, my life is sweeter and better with you in it because you make me realize that every day, the sky is not the limit.”

She continued, “The universe is infinite and so is what we can accomplish together with love and trust and understanding. There is so much more to do, to experience, and there is no one I’d rather do it with, baby. You’re my macho and I love you.”
