Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s relationship was fate waiting to happen from the first time they met. Both Alex and Jennifer were married when they met at a Shea Stadium baseball game in May 2005.
“We shook hands, and it was this weird electricity for, like, three seconds... Three to five seconds of looking at somebody right in their eyes and getting stuck.”
Says Jennifer Lopez
Although both parties were taken, Jennifer recalls instantly connecting with Alex when they shook hands. Rodriguez also revealed he had a signed picture of Jennifer from the 90s he has kept since then.
The pair reconnected in 2017 after bumping into each other at a restaurant. Lopez made the first move by tapping Alex on the shoulder to reconnect, and he later followed up asking for a dinner date, and the rest is history.
