Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez Say Their 4 Kids Are “Best Friends,” and Ugh, My Heart

Since now-engaged Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez started dating in 2017, we've wanted to be a part of their beautiful blended family. Both Jennifer and Alex share photos often of each other with their combined four kids — J Lo's twins Max and Emme, who she shares with Marc Anthony, and Alex's two daughters, 14-year-old Natasha and 10-year-old Ella — and Alex says they're all "best friends."

In a Dec. 2018 cover story, Jennifer told People that her and Alex took special care when introducing their children to each other, but as it turns out, all four were immediately on board with new "bonus" siblings.

"Kids are so beautiful and open to love and new friends. I was so loving to his kids and he was so loving and accepting of mine, and they embraced each other right away. [It was] 'I get a new bonus brother and sisters to hang out with all the time and it's nice,'" Jennifer said. Alex added: "Our kids have become best friends and that keeps us both grounded and appreciative. We couldn't have asked for anything better than the four of them getting along as they do."
