In March 2021, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez revealed that they had broken off their engagement. Within a month, the “On the Floor” singer was seen with her ex Ben Affleck, and the duo tied the knot a year later, in July 2022.
In a new appearance on Who is talking to Chris Wallace?, the former New York Yankees superstar opened up about whether or not it “bothers” him that Lopez rekindled his romance with Affleck so quickly. Keeping his response kind, but vague, Rodriguez responded by sending his best wishes to his former fiancée. “With Jennifer, it was a good experience and I wish her and the children – who are smart, beautiful and wonderful – I wish them the best,” he shared.
“That’s it?” Wallace asked, to which the baseball player replied, “That’s it.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Rodriguez spoke about the growth he’s made since his suspension from Major League Baseball in 2013. When asked if he thinks he’s “a good husband,” l The athlete replied, “In your twenties, that’s probably not the best.” I think I will make a wonderful partner or husband and father after the suspension because of the lessons I learned from my mistakes.
Rodriguez and Lopez started dating in 2017 and revealed their engagement in 2019. They spent the early part of the pandemic at home with their blended family, which included “Let’s Get Loud” singer Maximilian “Max”‘s twins. David and Emme Maribel — whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony — and Rodriguez’s daughters Ella and Natasha with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis. The pandemic postponed their initial wedding plans and the couple announced their split soon after.
