As many are aware by now, we are in full Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez relationship rollout. A J.Lo rollout always has an accelerated timeline so she’s right on track. The News Leak happened last month, followed by photographic evidence and then a romantic, childless getaway. Friday saw A-Rod’s confirmation of the relationship while appearing on The View so we only have J.Lo’s confirmation and then ring speculation to go!
Rodriguez publicly confirmed their relationship on The View Friday, and the former Yankees player couldn’t hold back his praise for the pop superstar.
“It’s obvious. We’ve been having a great time,” he said when asked directly about whether or not he and Lopez are officially an item. “We’re having a great time. She’s an amazing, amazing girl. One of the smartest human beings I’ve ever met and also an incredible mother.”
Rodriguez added that the Shades of Blue actress is also down-to-earth, despite her megastar status, something that he very much appreciates. “She just likes simple things,” he said. “I mean, she’s a very, very simple person. Loves family. Is a great sister. Is a great daughter.”

As far as facts most people don’t know about Lopez, Rodriguez shared that she ran track in high school and is actually very athletic, before divulging her guilty-pleasure snacks.
“She would kill me if I said too much,” he said, before spilling that she indulges on “chocolate chip ice cream and chocolate chip cookies.”

You can watch the clip here. When I read these quotes, I was ready to pull out my feminist soapbox and trounce this guy. But if you watch it, the nonsense is on The View’s panel, not A0Rod. For instance, as I mentioned in the Mayim Bialik post, I’m not crazy about people publicly referring to women as “girls.” (I am not crazy about it in private but I understand that could fall under ‘friend-speak’ preferences.) But Sara Haines introduces the subject of J.Lo by saying, “Supposedly – you have a new lady boo?” So A-Rod’s answer wasn’t bad. And his checklist of her ‘accomplishments’ being to whom she is related is an attempt to bridge the idiocy of the panels’ questions and his admiration of a very accomplished woman. The bit about J.Lo being a track star was in answer to being asked for some deep secret about J.Lo. I’m not surprised that she’s athletic but I didn’t know she was a track star so it was a good, non-invasive secret to spill. I came away from the clip feeling better about Rodriguez… and distaste for everyone on The View save for Joy who basically gives up trying to ask anything relevant a quarter of the way into the inane grilling.
J.Lo and A-Rod were spotted (and photographed – you can see the pics here) on two separate dates this weekend. They make a striking pair, not that that counts for anything but does make for great photo-viewing. And, of course, we already know, “They definitely see a future together.” I wish them both well. This relationship comes with more baggage than a socialite on a cruise but they are both adults, accomplished and protected financially by good teams so God bless.
Oh sweet jay-sus. This shot is from two weeks ago – what is that on her third finger? Guess they decided to skip ahead just to spice things up?
