After staying silent during her relationship with Drake earlier this year, Jennifer Lopez is sharing some intimate details about new boyfriend Alex Rodriguez — including what he texted her ahead of their first date!

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which airs Monday, April 24, the 47-year-old revealed how their romance started. "It's very simple. I was having lunch somewhere and I saw him. He passed by," the Shades of Blue actress explained. "Afterwards I went outside, but for some reason I felt like tapping him on the shoulder and said, 'Hi.'"

J.Lo said the pair chatted about living in LA before making casual plans to meet up. Although they didn’t exchange phone numbers, the former Yankees player, 41, already had her info. "He [later] texted me, 'Let's go out to dinner,' and I said, 'OK,'" the singer continued. "We had a nice dinner."

Clearly! The duo has spent a lot of time together since making their relationship public in early March. Their families, including her nine-year-old twins, Emme and Max, and his children, Natasha and Ella, even spent Easter together in the Dominican Republic.

"Jen and Alex woke up early and had Easter baskets outside lined up on the patio waiting for their kids," a source told E! News. "They had family and friends over for an egg hunt on the sprawling lawn of the property. Their kids have also really bonded and become good friends. A-Rod's older daughter, Natasha, is like a big sister to J.Lo's twins."
