J-Lo and A-Rod, Hot New Celebrity Power Couple

Over the past few weeks, Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez have spent the last few weeks traveling around the country together. Much speculation has been made about their relationship, indeed no one was sure they were even an item. Finally, on March 31, Rodriguez put all speculation to rest with an interview on The View.


The fervor over their coupling has run rampant on social media and throughout the press, making the announcement on the popular daytime talk show a perfect place to set the record straight. “We’re having a great time, she’s an amazing, amazing girl, and one of the smartest human beings I’ve ever met,” Rodriguez told the hosts.


They were seen at a New York Yankees exhibition game together in a suite in the middle of the month. Following his retirement, the former short stop and third baseman is working this season as a special instructor for the team.


The couple has also made public appearances together in Miami and the Bahamas. On top of that, the two were spotted at a Beverly Hills gym, having a romantic dinner at Los Angeles’s Madeo Italian restaurant and going to her Bel-Air home and a local hotel.


Until recently, Lopez had been seen with the Canadian rapper-actor Drake, but both Rodriguez and Lopez have both had a long string of high-profile love affairs. Popularity in his game play and controversy with performance-enhancing drugs has made him a target of news media and tabloid coverage.


J-Lo is currently promoting her NBC series Shades of Blue and her second Spanish-language album. She also has a number of television and film projects over the next year. A-Rod has retired from playing baseball. In addition to his new role with the Yankees, he works in philanthropy and expands his substantial art collection.


Besides one marriage in the 2000s, A-Rod has dated Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz and possibly Madonna. J-Lo, meanwhile, has dated Sean Combs and Ben Affleck, the latter being one-half of the celebrity nickname that started the trend with “Bennifer.”


The question on everyone’s mind now is what name will stick with this new power couple. Will it be A-Lo or J-Rod?
