Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez were the ‘it’ couple of the decade and in the four years they were together, fans were enthusiastically following them. After two years of dating, the stars decided to get married, but then, much like the rest of the world, COVID-19 ruined their plans. After a few postponement announcements, the couple eventually broke up. But both J-Lo and A-Rod are parents and their relationship meant a merging of the two families.
When kids are involved, often a relationship between two people thrives the best it can. But when the adults start to grow apart, it’s that much harder to end it. But both Lopez and Rodriguez have spoken about how lucky they are to have the kids that they do.
Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez praised their kids for blending together so well
The former Yankee has two daughters, Natasha and Ella, with his ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis. The singer has twins, Max and Emme, with ex-husband, Marc Anthony. Speaking to PEOPLE magazine back in 2018, the then-couple not only had words of praise for each other but for their kids as well. “Our kids have become best friends and that keeps us both grounded and appreciative,” Rodriguez said. “We couldn’t have asked for anything better than the four of them getting along as they do.”
While Lopez gushed, “We couldn’t ask for greater kids. Kids are so beautiful and open to love and new friends… I was so loving to his kids and he was so loving and accepting of mine, and they embraced each other right away.” It also helped that her twins and Ella were the same age!

How are both families doing now?
Rodriguez and Lopez broke up in April 2021 amid speculation and rumors from tabloids. The couple later commented that despite their personal issues with each other, they had tried to prolong the relationship. Why? For the sake of their kids, of course. Neither the pro baseball nor the singer wanted either of their kids to suffer. But, of course, things didn’t work out in the end.
The families don’t interact in public anymore and both seem to have moved on. J-Lo married her former fiance Ben Affleck while A-Rod is currently dating fitness expert Jac Cordeiro. Hopefully, there isn’t any bad blood between the two now!
