Alex Rodriguez Talks About Jennifer Lopez in 1998 Interview

Wow, Alex Rodriguez Basically Predicted His Romance With Jennifer Lopez Over 20 Years Ago

Alex Rodriguez is a former MLB player, but he might also want to consider becoming a psychic. On Tuesday, the 43-year-old shared a throwback video of himself doing an interview in 1998 when he played baseball for the Seattle Mariners. During the chat, the interviewer asked him who his dream date would be, and who did he pick? None other than his current fiancée, Jennifer Lopez. "Hopefully you can find me a date with her," he said in the clip, smiling. Alex joked in the post's caption writing, "I just had a feeling." Jennifer also got a kick out of it, commenting, "OMG... i love this too much," followed by three heart emoji.

Evidently, Alex ended up landing that date after Jennifer made the first move when they met in Los Angeles years ago. News of their relationship broke in March 2017 as they became increasingly close and formed a blended family with Jennifer's 11-year-old twins, Max and Emme — whom she shares with Marc Anthony — and Alex's two daughters, 14-year-old Natasha and 11-year-old Ella.

Two years after their relationship went public, Alex popped the question (with a gargantuan ring, might I add). They're now planning their wedding, though they aren't in any rush to walk down the aisle. "We have a pretty busy year ahead of us, so you know, we are [taking it slow]," Jennifer — who is preparing to kick off her Summer tour — told Entertainment Tonight in May.
