Jennifer Lopez is on cloud nine!
J-Lo spills the beans on her relationship with former New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez. “You don’t want to hear about all this,” a blushing Lopez says to a roaring crowd on Monday, April 24’s episode. The “Shades of Blue” star explains how she saw Rodriguez while out having lunch and tapped him on the shoulder.
“You really wanna hear this?” she asks the audience again and is met with a loud cheer. Lopez describes how the former baseball player texted her and asked her out on a date. She says the two had a nice dinner, but when DeGeneres pries about a post-date sleepover, J-Lo replies “Mama don’t sleepover on the first date.”
“I do”, DeGeneres quips to a chuckling Lopez. Suddenly, a man dressed in Rodriguez’s jersey hops out of a box and elicits a loud shriek from the singer… over four minutes into the video. “Look at that s**t,” J-Lo laughs. “This a*sshole has been in here the whole time? Are you f**king kidding me?” she tells a hysterically humoured DeGeneres.
The show also marks the debut of Lopez’s nine-year-old twins, Emme and Max.
Lopez and Rodriguez recently visited the Dominican Republic together, where they donated and gave out backpacks, notebooks and coloured pencils to students at an elementary school.
