Alex Rodriguez Reveals He Once Asked Jennifer Lopez for Her Autograph Before They Started Dating
On Thursday, the former Yankee, 43, shared a throwback photo of J.Lo, 49, which she signed for him years before they even got together.
“#TBT to almost 20 years ago when a big time global pop superstar signed a pic for a young ball player,” A-Rod captioned the shot adding, “#lifecanbeafunnythingsometimes #pictureperfect #keepsake #jlo.”
The “Dinero” singer later commented, “Omg!! Who found that!!???”
Of course, this isn't the first time Rodriguez has raved about his lady love on Instagram. In September, A-Rod posted a series of photos of his favorite memories he created with J.Lo from their trip to Italy in August.
In the post, the sportsman shows off several of his romantic boating adventures with the singer, as well as some sweet snaps of his two daughters, Ella, 10, and Natasha, 13. Lopez's 10-year-old twins Max and Emme were also on the trip.
One of those candid photos features Lopez lovingly gazing at her boyfriend, while the pair casually sits on an outdoor couch. Meanwhile, Rodriguez, sporting all-white attire and dark aviator shades in the image, smiles off into the distance.
“missing summer. 🇮🇹” he captioned the shots, before asking his followers, “What do you miss most about summer?”
Although Lopez and Rodriguez, who began dating in March of last year, have spent a lot of time as a blended family, they are in no rush to get married, a source previously told PEOPLE.
“Their relationship from the beginning was very passionate, and they moved quickly,” said the Lopez source. “With Alex, Jennifer seems more mature and peaceful. It's like she realized she doesn't have to be married to be in a happy and serious relationship.”
Planning for a future together, Lopez and Rodriguez are focused on their children's happiness. “Life is all about family for both of them,” the source said. “Besides the fact that Jennifer and Alex always had a strong attraction to each other, this seems to be the main reason why their relationship works so well. The kids always come first for both of them.”
