Alex Rodriguez stopped by Ellen DeGeneres’ show, and he talked about his romance with Jennifer Lopez. The man revealed how the lovers met for the first time ever, but the host was skeptical!
The episode is set to air tomorrow, April 9 but in a preview of the interview, we can see Ellen jokingly trying to poke holes in the origin story of A.Rod and J.Lo.
As you may know already, the two have been dating for over a year now and are still going strong.
In fact, lately, they have been getting more and more serious as they have ‘discussed marriage and what their long-term plan is’ as well as buying a $15.3 million apartment together in New York City.
‘I describe it as the luckiest day of my life,’ Alex Rodriguez replied the question of how they met.
His sweet answer was met with a wave of ‘Awws’ from the live studio audience.
He went on to explain that at the time, after a meeting in L.A. he was struggling to find his car when someone tapped his shoulder.
‘Someone taps me on the shoulder, and I turn around, and I don’t recognize this person. And it is Jennifer, but she is dressed up as Harlee from Shades of Blue, and she is in her jeans and her big boots. And it took me about 4 or 5 seconds. It’s Jennifer. ‘Oh my God, Jennifer, you look beautiful.’ I was so embarrassed, and then I got a little nervous,’ Rodriguez told Ellen.
And this is when, more than before, the host becomes skeptical he’s telling the truth: ‘And she says, ‘You have my number, reach out.’ And I went home that night and reached out.’
‘She says you went up to her and approached her at her table and started talking,’ Ellen jokingly says.
‘Oh my god, no,’ Rodriguez says with Ellen teasing him: ‘One of you is lying.’
