TMZ: Jennifer Lopez & Alex Rodriguez's Kids Are the Major Reason in Trying to Mend Relationship
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s blended family reportedly played a significant role in their decision to work on their relationship amid rumors that they called off their engagement and split.
Fans were in shock when it was reported that Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s four-year relationship was hanging by a thread. The couple has since refuted all reports of a break-up, admitting that they were working through things.
According to TMZ, Lopez and Rodriguez's decision to mend their relationship despite trying times is majorly dependent on their children. The singer is a proud mother of 13-year-old twins Emme and Max.
Rodriguez has two daughters from his previous marriage, Natasha, 16, and Ella, 12. Over the years, the four kids have formed a tight bond and evolved into a wholesome blended family that fans adore.
Hence, it came as a surprise to them when news of their parents’ split reached them. Sources revealed that neither Lopez nor Rodriguez thought the announcement of their break-up would surface soon, so there was no time to inform the kids.
An insider explained that “there were many tears” from the kids as Rodriguez and the “Pa Ti” crooner discussed the possibility of a break-up on Friday. However, on Saturday, the duo decided to work things out after talking with the kids.
A-Rod allegedly isn’t ready to split as he doesn’t know how devastating it might be to untangle their lives.
After news of their break-up surfaced, the former MLB superstar player hopped on his private jet and flew to the Dominican Republic, where Lopez is currently filming her upcoming movie, “Shotgun Wedding.”
The pair had been apart from each other for about two weeks, with Lopez busy filming in D.R. Per reports; the businessman flew to meet his fiancée in person to fight for their relationship and show her how serious he is about fixing things.
Rodriguez allegedly isn’t ready to split as he doesn’t know how devastating it might be to untangle their lives. Lopez, on the other hand, was still hopeful about a wedding and going for fittings until the news of their split surfaced.
While neither Rodriguez nor Lopez has personally addressed their relationship, the former sportsman shared a photo of their oceanfront pad and tagged his woman, writing “onward” and “upward” in the accompanying caption.
Over the weekend, Lopez posted a screenshot of a FaceTime call with her daughter Emme and her ex, Marc Anthony, that showed the teenager crying. She wrote in the caption that her daughter was sad, but Anthony was there to comfort her.
