We Bring Good Things to Life

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez Are Not Having a Pandemic Wedding

Despite being engaged since March 2019, Jennifer Lopez says she and fiancé Alex Rodriguez are in “no rush” to walk down the aisle, especially amid the ongoing pandemic.

During an interview on Access Hollywood on Wednesday, the pop star revealed of their plans for the big day, “We’ve talked about so many different things because we had to cancel the wedding last year because of COVID, because of the quarantine. And we actually did it twice, which people don’t know.” She added that having her fantasy wedding ceremony isn’t the biggest priority for either of them right now. “We kind of have let it go for a second and I don’t know what we’re going to do, we talk about small, big, this, that,” Lopez explained. “And I think we just feel like, let’s just wait it out. There’s no rush, we’re good, everything’s cool and it’ll happen when the time is right. I feel like it’s not a huge priority to go and have a big wedding right now, that’s not what life is about.”

The singer previously confessed on the Today Show in May that she was “a little heartbroken” over postponing their wedding “because we did have some great plans. But I’m also like, you know what? God has a bigger plan so we just have to wait and see. Maybe it’s going to be better” A bigger and better plan that could potentially include a shotgun Las Vegas ceremony as Rodriguez joked on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in April that, “Some people said maybe we have a drive-thru wedding,” adding with a laugh, “It’ll be cheaper.”
