    Since their red carpet debut at the Met Gala, all eyes have been on Jennifer Lopez and her new beau, former Yankee baseball player Alex ‘A-Rod’ Rodriguez.

    After having to shoo away all the rumours about her and singer Drake, J-Lo has opened up about her new relationship in a recent interview with E! News and her response was candid and totally relatable – even if you aren’t in the public eye.

    ‘I think we are very happy and just having a good time and don’t put as much pressure as everybody else puts on it,’ she said, adding: ‘the media is good at that sometimes.’

    And, considering that the pair celebrated Easter together with all their kids (Jennifer’s 9-year-old twins, Max and Emme and Alex’s daughters, 12-year-old Natasha and 8-year-old Ella), it seems like things are getting pretty serious between the pair.

    Plus, Alex has already met Jennifer’s mum, having been spotted back in April all hanging out together. And they’ve already been on holiday, with Jennifer Lopez sharing a selfie of the two of them in the Bahamas a few months ago (before deleting it to wait for the Met Ball for their first official photo together.)
