Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are prioritizing their relationship.
In Lopez’s new cover story for Allure magazine, the pop star revealed that she and her fiancé attended couples counseling at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as shared how her professional and family life have fared amid the challenging time.
“I miss being creative and running on 150. But Alex, of all people, was like, ‘I love it. I love being at home. I love doing my Zooms. I love knowing the kids are there, and you’re there all the time.’ It has been actually really good,” said the singer. “We got to work on ourselves. We did therapy. I think it was really helpful for us in our relationship.”
Lopez continued, expressing that she and Rodriguez were both disappointed in having to cancel what was sure to be a lavish wedding ceremony abroad last summer, but ultimately understood that the cancellation was for the best.
“It was a big deal. We had been planning for months and months and months, and it was overseas,” said Lopez. “Maybe that wasn’t the right time. You start thinking of all of these things—how everything has its kind of perfect, divine moment.”
The pair’s postponed nuptials haven’t stopped the two from showing up and supporting each other throughout the last year, however. Rodriguez has been by Lopez’s side for her last three major feats, including performing at the 2020 Super Bowl, headlining the New Year’s Eve celebration in Time Square, and singing at President Joe Biden’s inauguration at the start of 2021.
