What did Jennifer Lopez say about having a spark between her and Alex Rodriguez?

The couple had met for the first time at Shea Stadium during a Yankee game. Their meeting at the time was short and sweet. But since both of them were married to different people at the time, they could not date each other.

Then, after fourteen years, the couple sat for Rodriguez’s cover story for Sports Illustrated. There, Jennifer talked about the spark they had during their first meeting. “We shook hands, and it was this weird electricity for, like, three seconds,” Lopez told SI. Later, she said“Three to five seconds of looking at somebody right in their eyes, and getting stuck.”
