The coronavirus pandemic and winter haven’t stopped Jennifer Lopez from still dressing up when she goes out. The 51-year-old singer was photographed on a lunch date in Coral Gables, FL, with fiancé Alex Rodriguez on Wednesday. Lopez was impeccably dressed in a gray tweed coat, a tan turtleneck and mask, jeans, and tan boots. Rodriguez wore jeans with a light blue button-up, black mask, navy sweater, and white sneakers. Both wore sunglasses.
Lopez spoke to ELLE for the February 2021 issue about how she has felt postponing her wedding to Rodriguez multiple times now due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The two originally had planned to wed in Italy last year.
“We postponed the wedding twice,” she said. “We had planned what we really, really wanted to do, [but] I don’t know if we’ll be able to recreate that. We canceled it, and since then we haven’t really talked about it. There’s no rush. We want to do it right when we can do it. We just have to wait to see where the world lands.”
In November 2019, she gave some of her most in-depth remarks yet to GQ about why she feels like Rodriguez is such a great match for her. “I mean, we’re very similar,” she said. “We’re really alike in our drive, in our ambition. He’s an athlete. He wanted to be the best. I’m the same way. I just want to be great at what I do. We’re both like that. We’re both super-hard workers. We’re driven by our passions. And we have a tremendous amount of respect for each other. Everybody in the room can be talking, and if he says something, I key in on it, and if everybody in the room is kinda in his ear and I go, ‘I don’t think that’s the right thing,’ he’ll hear me; he’ll listen. He knows I only have his best interest at heart, and I only want him to thrive and succeed and to be his best self. And I believe that he wants that for me. He wants me to be seen and to get what I deserve. Like, he’s made his half a billion. And he’s like, ‘I want you to have that.'”
