39 Photos That Prove Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez Have the Cutest Blended Family in Hollywood
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are a match made in celebrity heaven. Besides their incredible talents and good looks, they've managed to show the world how a blended family should be. Having come from a family with step children and half-siblings, I know how hard it can be to make these situations work, and if their Instagrams are any indication, they've really figured it out. Blending their two families — two daughters on his side (Natasha and Ella) and twins on her side (Maximillian and Emme) — J Lo and ARod really are parenting goals. Here are just a few times they've proven that with love and hard work, a blended family can be a beautiful thing.
