Both Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are known for their larger-than-life personalities, but the couple is actually hoping to keep their wedding pretty small, at least according to a new report.
A source close to the stars told People this week that J.Lo and A-Rod are “not doing a huge wedding,” which may surprise some fans. What won’t surprise fans, however, is that the couple’s intended “small family celebration” will naturally include their four kids — Lopez’s twins Max and Emme, 11, and Rodriguez’s daughters Natasha, 14, and Ella, 11.
The insider noted, however, that nothing is finalized just yet. In fact, Lopez, 49, is currently focusing on her career as she’s busy revving up for her “It’s My Party” tour in time for her 50th birthday. The festivities will kick off in Inglewood, California, on June 7.
Earlier this month, the Maid in Manhattan told Today show host Savannah Guthrie that she always knew she wanted to marry Rodriguez, 43, before he even proposed. “I always planned to get married again,” she said at the time. “I wanted to spend my life with somebody. I want to grow old with somebody. I think that’s the goal, right? To find a partner to kind of walk through this crazy thing with.”
Speaking to why the pair work so well together, Lopez called the former Yankees player her “complement.”
“He’s super supportive. He allows me to be who I am,” she said. “We both have a lot of respect and admiration for each other. And he helps me. He helps me where I’m weak and I help him where he’s weak and he makes me stronger and that’s what it is.”
Rodriguez dropped down to one knee at the beach while the pair was on vacation in the Bahamas in March; they first started dating back in early 2017, and have been going strong ever since.
