The two stars first met at a baseball game in 2005 and reconnected in late 2016, after Lopez spotted Rodriguez in walking by the Beverly Hills restaurant where she was eating lunch. They started dating in February 2017 and made their red carpet debut as a couple three months later at the Met Gala.

Since then, they’ve gushed over each other and their blended family on social media and during interviews. Lopez has twins named Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony and Rodriguez has two children, daughters Natasha and Ella, from his past marriage to Cynthia Scurtis. Rodriguez even told People that Lopez is “a great role model” for his children and they “look at her like she’s the Messiah.”

During an appearance on NBC’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” in December 2018, the “Dinero” singer explained one of the reasons why she fell for the former baseball player.

“Some people try to dull you down or squish you down and he’s so not like that and it’s just so refreshing,” she said. “It’s just a beautiful thing. He’s just a very generous, loving spirit [and] soul.”
