Jennifer Lopez's fiance Alex Rodriguez revealed in a recent interview that the 'On The Floor' singer broke down in tears after she found out she was co-headlining the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show alongside Shakira. 

The 50-year-old singer had announced the big news in September.

On Wednesday, Alex dished on the 'Today' show that his fiance could not hold back her emotions after learning from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that she had bagged the coveted performance spot in the sporting event that will be held in Miami, Florida. 

He added that it "has been a dream of [Jennifer's] her whole life and she's been close a few times."

Alex, 44, also revealed that, ever since learning the news, Jennifer has been rehearsing nonstop to ensure that her performance does not lack the "oomph" factor. "She's been rehearsing for, like, six weeks," the former Yankee star said.

Jennifer recently revealed that she was hard at work for the show which will take place on February 2 next year. "I have been doing a lot of meetings about the Super Bowl, been prepping and hiring the people and putting concepts and ideas for the show together," she said. 

She also added that she had reached out to the 'Hips Don't Lie' songstress to discuss the best way to collaborate on stage during the performance. "Shakira and I have spoken a few times already. She's putting her thing together, I'm putting my thing together, thinking about who we want to join us on stage, if we want that," she said. 

"We are super excited. We want to make a beautiful, impactful, enjoyable, fun show for everybody. We want to bring everybody together," Jennifer said. "That's the point. We as artists have that rare gift to be able to do that, and that's what I think our main goal is."

If the two remain the only artists to be announced for next year's halftime show, it will mark the first time that women co-headline a Superbowl show sans a male act.
