J.Lo and A-Rod Have More In Common Than You Think
Lopez and Rodriguez have been hitting it off as a couple since they started dating back in March. Many fans think the two celebrities have finally met their match— and Rodriguez agrees. “Our kids get along really well, we’re both from New York, we’re both Latin, we’re both in our forties, we’re really enjoying life, but she really is one of the most impressive and smartest human beings I have ever met," he told Extra.
And there's a lot more that these two have in common than Rodriguez named. We're listing all the similarities between J-Rod that makes their compalibility look solid as rock.
These two make 40 look GOOD! Rodriguez, 41 and Lopez, 47 aren't letting age stop them from having the time of their lives and living it up.
The Bronx (NYC) holds a special place in the heart of both celebrities. A-Rod called the neighborhood home for over ten years as a New York Yankee and JLo—or "Jenny from the Block"—was born and raised there. She recently shared a photo on Instagram of the '6' train line, which runs through the area in which she grew up.
Lopez and Rodriguez both have Latino backgrounds from the Carribean. The athlete's family is from the Dominican Republic, and the Shades of Blue star was born to Puerto Rican parents.
They are both parents to two children each—who are all similar in age—from prior marriages. Lopez is mother to twins Max and Emme, 9. Rodriguez is the father to daughters Natasha, 12 and Ella, 9. Their kids have hit it off pretty well, even spending pool time and Easter together.
Fitness is a priority for the two as workouts have always been fundamental in both Rodriguez's life as an athlete and Lopez's, who has to keep up with her dance numbers at her Las Vegas residency: All I Have.
Style Game Matched
There is no doubt that these lovebirds know what they're doing when it comes to fashion. When JLo isn't slaying a red carpet, she and her beau are stepping out in style for a daytime stroll or a fabulous date night.
They both have recently taken on new—and major— television projects. Lopez is currently a judge on NBC's dance competition show World of Dance and Rodriguez is set to join CNBC's Shark Tank as a guest shark.
On The Money
Aside from their matching ambition, these two have nearly matching dollar signs as well. Forbes estimates that Rodriguez's net worth is $480 million, and Lopez's net worth is around $300 million.
