Jennifer Lopez Posts Candid Message to Boyfriend A-Rod on 2-Year Anniversary

Jennifer Lopez just proved (again) that boyfriend Alex Rodriguez has her love.

In honor of the couple’s two-year anniversary, the 49-year-old “Jenny from the Block” singer shared a candid message on Instagram about their time together that left us a little bit verklempt.

Lopez posted a slideshow of herself and her 43-year-old beau looking into each other’s eyes and celebrating the holidays with their beautiful blended family. She also shared a special assortment of pics of Rodriguez showing his impeccable suit game and many different sides (Sleek A-rod! Playful A-Rod! Happy A-Rod!)

“Two years of laughter, two years of fun, two years of adventures, of excitement of growing and learning, of true friendship, and so much love!!,” she began her caption.

The Second Act host went on to explain, “You make my world a more beautiful safe and stable place…in the midst of our ever-changing, ever-moving life…you make me feel like a teenager starting out all over again…Every time I think I have you pegged, you surprise me in the most wonderful ways reminding me how blessed I am to have found you now in this moment at this time…our time…Te Amo Macho…#atapontheshoulder #2years”

Wondering what the “#atapontheshoulder” hashtag means? Well, J.Lo and her ex-husband, Marc Anthony, first met A-Rod 12 years ago when they visited a Mets versus Yankees game so Anthony could throw the first pitch.

Eight years later (aka two years ago) A-Rod spotted Lopez on the street and tapped her on the shoulder to say hello. They chatted and decided to have dinner together. A-Rod talked her ear off, J.Lo revealed she was single, A-Rod famously said she looked “sexy AF,” and the rest was history.

Now, they’ve joined their families and done their fair share of denying engagement rumors. TBD on when they’ll make their “J-Rod” status official.
