BANG! NEWS – American star Jennifer Lopez insisted she was not in a “rush” to marry Alex Rodriguez.
The 50-year-old singer – who tied the knot three times previously, to Ojani Noa, Cris Judd and Marc Anthony – is engaged to the former sports star, but Jennifer does not feel under immediate pressure to walk down the aisle.
She told Oprah Winfrey, “It’s so funny because when we first got engaged I was like, ‘Oooo, we’re gonna get married in a couple months?!’ You’re old thinking comes right back, all that hopeless romantic (stuff) that made me get married three times.
“He’s like, ‘Whatever you want to do, we can talk about it’. I said, ‘But if we’re going to be together for the rest of our lives, what is the rush?’”
The music star – who has 12-year-old twins Emme and Maximilian with Marc – stressed that she and Alex were seeking to “build something together”.
She shared, “We’re really going to try to build something together that we both never had or both never felt like we had – which was a family with a husband and a wife, and a mother and a father – and we embrace all of our children and we show them something that we didn’t have.”
Jennifer thought her current romance is “different” to her past relationships. She said, “It was different than anything that I had ever experienced in the sense of his consistency. What he says, he does… every time. And that is big. He wants to build together, which I’ve never had.”
