The two reportedly met when they were separately having lunch. Lopez went up to Rodríguez and introduced herself.
“I was having lunch somewhere and I saw him as he passed by,” Lopez told Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance on her daytime show in April 2017. “Afterwards, I went outside, and for some reason I felt like tapping him on the shoulder.”
This will be the fourth marriage for the 49-year-old Lopez. Her third marriage with singer Marc Anthony ended in 2014.
She was also previously married to Cris Judd and Ojani Noa. Lopez and Judd were married from 2001 to 2003.
Lopez and Noa were previously married from 1997 to 1999.
This will be Rodríguez’s second marriage. He was previously married to Cynthia Scurtis, which ended in 2008.
The 43-year-old New York, New York native played 22 seasons in Major League Baseball. He played 12 seasons with the New York Rangers, while he also spent 10 seasons between the Seattle Mariners and the Texas Rangers.
Lopez is six-years older than Rodríguez, as she is 49 — and will be 50-years-old in July. She has two children.
Rodríguez also has two children, as he had them Scurtis.
