Some things just don’t need a translation — just ask Alex Rodriguez, who gushed about his girlfriend Jennifer Lopez in both English and Spanish. In a heartfelt Instagram post, the former baseball star wished J.Lo a happy 48th birthday with some bilingual words of love.
“Wishing a happy birthday to this amazing human being who lights up my world every day,” he wrote the “Ni Tu, Ni Yo” singer. “Te amo muneca.” The last phrase translates into “I love you doll.” (Insert heart eye emoji here).
The couple celebrated their birthdays together this past weekend, as both Leos were born just a few days apart. “Celebrating our lives… Happy birthday,” Jennifer captioned a photo of the pair on her own social media, before sweetly adding, “In a crowded room but it’s just the two of you…”
J-Rod, as they have aptly been nicknamed, have been dating since last March and wasted no time in blending their families. Jennifer, who shares nine-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony, loves Alex’s daughters Natasha, 12, and Ella, 9. So much so that the Selena actress is ready to tie the knot with the former Yankees slugger — but when the time is right.
“Jennifer keeps telling Alex that she’s ‘just not there yet,’” an insider told Life & Style exclusively. “A-Rod has been begging J.Lo to set a wedding date. She loves him, but she’s told him that until she says otherwise, the wedding is on hold.”
The source continued, “Jennifer worries she’s going to make another mistake. Three ex-husbands are enough. She doesn’t work well under pressure. A-Rod has to back off.”
Despite the pressure, J.Lo can’t stop gushing about her new relationship either. “He’s caring and sweet and capable and responsible and just all the beautiful things you would want a man to be,” she said. “I feel really lucky right now, so I’m excited about life, but I’m more excited for people to get to see who he really is.”
