During an interview on “SiriusXM Hits 1” published Thursday, Lopez called A-Rod her best friend and said the two are “very similar.”
“It’s one of those things ... you meet a like-minded person, who is trying to be the best they can be, and always trying to grow, and then they help you grow, and you help them grow,” she said, adding that “together we make each other better.”
Asked when she knew Rodriguez was “the one” ― and when she knew she wanted to get married again ― the “Ain’t Your Mama” singer revealed that it was about a year into dating him.
“I was just sussing it out,” Lopez said with a smile after noting everything she’s “been through” in her previous relationships.
“Everything just seemed almost too perfect too soon,” she continued, later adding, “When it happened, I think it was the right time, we both knew.”
Lopez has two children, twins Maximilian David and Emme Maribel, with ex-husband Marc Anthony. Rodriguez has two daughters, Ella Alexander and Natasha Alexander, with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis.
Lopez spoke about her relationship with Rodriguez during an interview with Vanity Fair in 2017.
“I understand him in a way that I don’t think anyone else could, and he understands me in a way that no one else could ever,” she said.
