Alex Rodriguez is opening up about his new romance with Jennifer Lopez.
While appearing on “The View” on Friday morning, the 41-year-old New York Yankees star coyly confirmed his newly publicized relationship with the 47-year-old pop star. “We’re having a great time,” he said. “She’s an amazing girl. One of the smartest human beings I’ve ever met, and also an incredible mother.”
When asked to unveil some fun facts about the mother of two that fans might not know, he revealed, “She was a track star in high school and junior high. She was an awesome athlete.” Rodriguez added, “She just likes simple things. I mean, she’s a very, very simple person. Loves family. Is a great sister. Is a great daughter.”
Despite JLo’s fantastic physique, the baseball star disclosed that she does like to indulge in a few guilty pleasures from time to time. “She’d kill me if I say too much,” Rodriguez began by saying, later revealing that she likes “chocolate chip ice cream” and “chocolate chip cookies.”
Following JLo’s alleged romance with Toronto rapper Drake, Rodriguez and Lopez began fuelling the romance rumours in early March when they were reportedly spotted together in Las Vegas during the singer’s Planet Hollywood show. After jetting off together to the Bahamas and Miami, they were most recently spotted leaving the Marea restaurant in New York City on Friday afternoon.
