A-Rod Reacts To 20-Year-Old Clip of Him Calling J.Lo His 'Dream Date'

November 16, 2019

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez were destined to fall in love.

While the A-list couple is currently engaged, A-Rod had his sights on the pop diva for over two decades as a 1998 video of him calling J.Lo his “dream date” will attest.

While appearing on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” the former New York Yankee was forced to rewatch the vintage clip where he was asked "What would a dream date with Alex Rodriguez be?" Without skipping a beat, his younger self replied,"Jennifer Lopez, hopefully you can find me a date with her."

Rodriguez got a kick out of video and reacted by saying, "That means that dreams actually do come true in America!"

The 44-year-old then took a swipe at his overly confident demeanor in the 21-year-old footage.

He added: "And by the way, the swagger with the hat backwards and the gum, you gotta be young to be that cocky and that confident."

While it took a while for his dream to materialize, Rodriguez and Lopez eventually began dating in 2017 and got engaged in March of this year.

The couple have not revealed a wedding date, but have let a few details slip in recent months.

Lopez disclosed her son Max will be walking her down the aisle, while Rodriguez hinted the location of the wedding will require “a long flight.”

And as far as juggling getting everything ready for their nuptials, Rodriguez has it all figured out.

"I would say it's stressful, but it's really not,” A-Rod told Fallon. “You just let Jennifer plan everything and you say, 'Alright!'"
