You know what they say, how can you not be romantic about baseball? Alex Rodriguez certainly understands that now, after girlfriend Jennifer Lopez surprised him on Major League Baseball’s Opening Day, which the former MLB star was working. The singer briefly popped into the broadcast booth to visit with him while he announced the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants game on Thursday, March 29. Check out the video above to watch the sweet moment!
During the adorable interaction, one of J.Lo’s twins, Max, can be seen running up to the 42-year-old and giving him a big hug. The mom-of-two follows behind him, giving A-Rod a kiss on the lips. After visiting him in the booth, J.Lo, Max, and daughter Emme were spotted in the crowd at Dodgers Stadium, enjoying the game.
The former Yankee superstar is the newest member of ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball, and will be serving as a correspondent for many games this baseball season. His debut went smoothly and it seems like he’s loving the new gig! “#MyView from #DodgerStadium for my first #ESPN game tonight! Tune in at 7e/4p #OpeningDay #PlayBall #HeavenOnEarth #BeautifulDayForBaseball,” A-Rod wrote alongside a fun selfie while chillin’ in the booth.
J.Lo and A-Rod first started dating back in February 2017 — and with their relationship passing the one year mark, engagement rumors have begun to circulate. But J.Lo, who’s been divorced three times, is in no rush to tie the knot. “I do believe in marriage, and I would love to grow old with somebody in a committed relationship,” the Maid in Manhattan actress revealed in a recent interview. “But I’m not forcing anything right now.”
Although she may not be ready for marriage, her relationship with A-Rod is certainly thriving. “It’s good, it’s healthy; we communicate well,” she continued. “We understand each other’s lives in a way that most other people couldn’t. We both entered the public eye in our early 20s and overachieved right from the start. And that affects every dynamic in your life, from your family to your work to your relationships.”
