Jennifer Lopez may have played the role of the blushing bride once or twice before, but that doesn’t stop fans from wondering what she’ll do this time around.
The 50-year-old has kept quiet about what’s in the works for her wedding to former Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez.
Jennifer and Alex got engaged in March, but both have stayed mum about any plans until recently. On an appearance on Strahan, Sara and Keke, the hosts tried teasing some wedding details out of Alex, and he eventually relented. He hinted that it would be “a long flight” to wherever the wedding was taking place.
At a screening in Miami of her new film, Hustlers, Jennifer made a surprise appearance.
She was asked by Entertainment Tonight about Alex’s response, and she replied, “He’s just saying things.” However, Jennifer did have one detail she was OK with sharing: She intends to have her 11-year-old son Max be the one to walk her down the aisle.
Jennifer Lopez isn’t quite ready to share the details of her nuptials to Alex Rodriguez. According to the 50-year-old singer, there isn’t anything to tell quite yet. A recent interview with Alex gave fans a different idea.
Alex stopped by Strahan, Sara and Keke, where he was questioned about wedding plans. Alex insisted he didn’t know much about what would be going on. “When you think about wedding plans and Jennifer is your partner, all you do is — you do a lot of nodding,” Alex said, according to People.
“I don’t know where the location is, I don’t know what I’m wearing, I don’t know when it is. I’ll just show up,” he continued. It didn’t stop the hosts from continuing to prod for some information.
They played a game of “this or that” with the star, asking questions about everything wedding-related, from food to dancing. Then, Alex conceded that he could give up one detail. “I got one clue for y’all. One wedding clue,” he teased. “It’s gonna be a long flight.”
Jennifer was asked about the comment when she appeared in Miami to surprise fans at a screening of her new film, Hustlers. She wasn’t exactly quick to confirm what Alex mentioned, or much else.
“He’s just saying things,” Jennifer told Entertainment Tonight. “We’re talking about it, but we don’t have any firm plans … and we’re talking about a lot of places [to get married in], but I don’t know yet.”
Jennifer went on to explain that they haven’t even settled on a time frame yet. “We can’t narrow it down yet,” she explained. It’s understandable, seeing as the new film is already generating some Oscars buzz. The next few months could turn out to be quite busy.
There is one detail that Jennifer was able to confirm. Jennifer revealed that when the time for the wedding does come along, she’d like her 11-year-old son, Max, to walk her down the aisle. She shares Max and his twin sister, Emme, with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
Family has been a really important component of Jennifer and Alex’s relationship. We’ve seen plenty of sweet glimpses that the blended family members have truly embraced each other. Max and Emme get along with 14-year-old Natasha and 11-year-old Ella amazingly.
A source told People that the kids will play a big role in the wedding. “For them both, they are still all about their family with the four kids. Their initial strong attraction for each other would have quickly faded if they had not been able to come together as a family,” the source noted.
“It’s always tricky when you merge families, but Jennifer and Alex did a great job from the start,” the source continued. “The kids are amazing together. And they have wanted Jennifer and Alex to get married for a long time. They will all definitely be a huge part of the wedding.”
The source also revealed that “there were talks about an engagement from early on,” but that Jennifer slowed things down because she “realized that she wanted to live more in the moment” and “enjoy what they have together with the kids.”
Jennifer and Alex announced their engagement in March. Both shared the same photo of Jennifer’s hand with the stunning estimated 15-carat ring. “She said yes,” Alex captioned his, while Jennifer stuck to several black heart emojis.
Fans of the power couple anxiously await more details on their nuptials. If that ring is any indication, it will be a classic, stunning affair not soon to be forgotten. With this fun-loving couple, anything is possible.
