Jennifer Lopez admits her wedding to Alex Rodriguez has been affected a 'little bit' by coronavirus lockdown
Jennifer Lopez has opened up about her marriage plans with fiance Alex Rodriguez and how the novel coronavirus outbreak has affected it. Lopez appeared on the at-home edition of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where the 62-year-old interviewed her about her life in quarantine.
Though ‘The Wedding Planner’ star has not revealed a confirmed date of the wedding, she admitted that her plan to tie the knot with the 44-year-old former professional baseball shortstop is pretty much in limbo due to the uncertainty over the coronavirus pandemic. “Any day now?!” the actress replied when asked by DeGeneres if the wedding was due scheduled very soon.
Lopez added, “Actually, it did affect it a little bit, so we will see what happens now. Honestly, I really don’t know what’s going to happen now, as far as dates or anything like that. We’re just kind of in a holding pattern like the rest of the world. It’s something that we’ll have to wait and see in a few months, how this all pans out.”
The 50-year-old got engaged to Rodriguez in February 2019 during a romantic getaway to the Caribbean, and rumors were widespread that the pair would tie the knot this summer. A source recently told US Weekly, “J. Lo and Alex’s wedding is supposed to be this summer after postponing it because of her filming schedule, her Super Bowl performance and other work commitments.”
“She is finally ready to shift her focus to wedding planning and making that a top priority," the source said, adding, “They make each other so incredibly happy and J. Lo truly found the man of her dreams and A. Rod found the woman of his dreams. They couldn’t imagine life without one another in it and can’t wait to spend the rest of their lives together.”
However, due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, like many people across the world, Lopez and Rodriguez have also gone into quarantine together in Miami with children from their past relationships. While he is a father of two daughters, Natasha, 15, and Ella, 11, whom he shares with his former wife Cynthia Scurtis, J.Lo is a mother of twins, Max and Emme, aged 12, by her third husband Marc Anthony.
During the DeGeneres’ at-home edition show, Lopez also admitted having 'what is this?' moments while homeschooling her twins during the coronavirus lockdown. When the host asked J.Lo whether she was finding it easy to homeschool to which she confessed, "Honestly I think we're all looking at it like, what is this?" with her hands on her head.
Lopez then asked the talk show host whether she had "Seen the Math that they have the kids do now?" and proceeds to describe it as "A new Math Ells Bells, it's a new Math. It's crazy."
She also opened up about how there have been times in recent weeks where she was not sure how to help the children with studies. "And so, you know, half the time I'm like, ok, yeah. Let's look up that word. What does that mean," she said with a laugh. "It's been an experience, for sure," she added.
This comes a few days after the mother-of-two was spotted with her fiancé in a Miami gym, hours before Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued a statewide shelter in place to try and stop the spread of the coronavirus.
The ‘Maid in Manhattan’ star was spotted in a scarlet sports bra that showed off her toned dancer's figure including her trim midriff. She paired the sexy top with an elaborately patterned pair of high-waisted leggings and accessorized with huge aviator sunglasses. While her partner Rodriguez wore a simple black cardigan and sweats over a charcoal tee.
