Lopez married Jenna (née Reeves) on July 4, 2015, during an intimate ceremony at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum in California. They got engaged the previous December when Lopez proposed on a beach date.

A baby had been in the plans for a while for the couple, who live together in Austin, Texas, with their daughter, whom they welcomed in June 2017.

“We’re definitely planning on having kids very soon, trying to build a new house in Austin and getting after it!” Lopez told PEOPLE at the time of their wedding.

Eloise helped announce her little sister on the way in February, sporting a shocked face and holding a bundle of pink balloons in a snapshot her mama shared to Instagram.

NBC took Ready for Love, the show that brought the couple together, off the air after three weeks in 2013 — which Lopez said actually helped their connection.

“For our relationship, thankfully, the show failed,” he told PEOPLE. “For us, there might have been a little bit more pressure and a lot more eyes on us if it had continued and become something like The Bachelor.”

And even though Ready for Love only gave them a few weeks to get to know each other, Lopez felt instantly connected to his future wife. He explained, “I knew I was going to pick Jenna pretty much from the beginning.”
