Will Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez Have a Child Together?

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are one of the most high-profile couples around. And this week, they announced their engagement. The two of them are about to start planning a wedding, but people can’t help but wonder if the couple will want to welcome any more children together after they’re married.

Lopez and Rodriguez dated for two years before getting engaged

The two first met more than a decade ago after Lopez attended a Yankee game in 2005 with her then-husband, Marc Anthony. (Rodriguez was also married at the time.) She and Rodriguez shook hands, but the interaction was innocent. However, in early 2017, Lopez and Rodriguez reconnected outside of a Beverly Hills restaurant, and both were single at the time. Rodriguez wasted no time asking Lopez out to dinner. The two dated low-key for several weeks until a source close to the couple revealed their relationship in March 2017. They dated publicly for about two years and made several appearances together. Then, in March 2019, Rodriguez popped the question.

Both of their families have blended very well

Lopez and Rodriguez each have two children, and sometimes things can be difficult getting all of the kids to get along. But the couple has said that their families have blended very nicely and everyone enjoys spending time with one another. Lopez has twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony, and Rodriguez has two daughters, Ella and Natasha. The couple has taken their children on vacation together, and overall, the family appears to get along as well as Rodriguez and Lopez have said. But does a great blended family mean the couple may want to try for a baby of their own?

A source close to the couple said they’re not ruling out having more children

Lopez and Rodriguez might both be in their 40s, but it doesn’t mean they’ve ruled out having children. Age is becoming less and less of a factor in starting families these days. And a source close to the couple told Hollywood Life that the couple is considering have children of their own when the time is right. “[Lopez] is madly in love with [Rodriguez], and she would love to share his genes to make some babies,” the source said. “Years ago, [Lopez] took extra steps to secure the possibility of having more babies.”

Right now, the couple is only focusing on planning a wedding

Although Lopez and Rodriguez may see babies at some point in their future, it seems the two are only focused on planning their wedding right now. Although the couple hasn’t released too many details about their big day, a source close to the two told People they plan to make their children a large part of the celebration. “For them both, they are still all about their family with the four kids… They will definitely be a huge part of the wedding.” If Lopez’ massive engagement ring is any indication of the extravagance of the wedding, it will definitely be a major event for the two.
