The Story of How Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez Met Deserves to Be a Movie

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have been together for over a year now, and are still going strong. The couple have blended their families seamlessly, traveled the world, and just can't stop gushing about each other.

"I describe it as the luckiest day of my life," he said.
