A Lopez source previously told PEOPLE the singer is “excited” about Rodriguez but is being “cautious” and still enjoying the dating phase. Indeed, the insider adds the duo are “getting to know each other and having fun.”

Aside from bonding over being parents (Rodriguez has two daughters, Natasha, 12, and Ella, 8, from a previous marriage), the duo also have a “strong physical attraction,” says the insider.

Adds another source who knows them both: “He loves family and so does she. For Jennifer, family comes first.”
