    Jennifer Lopez is one of the most talked about women in the world, from her iconic red carpet looks to sassy (and hilarious) remarks.

    One of the most talked about aspects of J-Lo’s world however is her love life, previously linked to high profile names from Ben Affleck (remember Bennifer?) to Drake.

    The 48-year-old is currently dating American baseball player Alex Rodriguez (A-Rod), with the couple confirming their relationship last year, even sparking engagement rumours a few months back after J-Lo released her revealing song, ‘Us’.

    While Jennifer Lopez has yet to address the engagement rumours, she did open up about her relationship with A-Rod in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week.

    ‘I’m so competitive’, she told host Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday, going on to explain how it affects her relationship with A-Rod.

    ‘When we work out, I think, “I can beat you,”’ she explained.

    ‘If he does challenge you, then it may lead to a competition and there’s no winning that for him’, Jimmy stated, to which J-Lo replied, ’If he beats me, it’s over.’

    But while being competitive on their workouts, the couple seem to be incredibly supportive when it comes to what matters, with J-Lo explaining how she has her boyfriend’s back when he’s working baseball games as a broadcaster.

    ‘I get the little feed in my ear so I can hear him calling the game,’ she told Jimmy. And according to an interview a few months back with E! News, he returns the favour at her shows.

    ‘He’s so supportive,’ she explained of A-Rod. ’I mean, he was at rehearsal with me last night till 1am and after he had worked his whole day, I work my whole day, then we go to rehearsal and he’s like, “What time will you be done?” I said, “I don’t know.” He goes, “Alright, I’ll just come over there and I’ll do some work and we’ll go home together.” That’s the kind of support, like in this business, it’s just a different kind of business, you know, and so, to have someone who understands it and wants to be there and you want to be there for them, it’s a very special thing.’

    These two are too much!
