Lopez and A-Rod had started dating back in 2017, and just after a month of going public with their relationship, the duo appeared in public together at the Met Gala 2017. 

Jennifer had worn a powdered blue Valentino gown on the red carpet, whereas Rodriguez had played the perfect boyfriend and clicked pictures of her.

On The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Alex said, “It was one of the most humbling experiences of my life. When I was with the Yankees when we won world championships.., you think you’re pretty cool, but then you hang out with Jennifer, and they confuse me with a security guard all the time.”

In addition to this, he said, “We were at the Met Ball, and the paparazzi was screaming at me, not even in English, ‘Get the hell out of the way, we need to take a picture.'”

After hearing these statements from A-Rod, Jimmy Fallon laughed. He loved hearing from him that being mistaken for Lopez’s bodyguard was humbling for him. 

Lopez and Rodriguez were better as friends

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez met in 2005 for the first time. They rekindled their relationship in 2017 and started dating each other soon after. The duo had also gotten engaged in March 2019.
